Taxi from Mysore to Ooty

I want to hire a taxi (may be Indica or similar small car) from Mysore to Ooty. I have read that there are 2 routes - one via Masinagudi and other via Gudallur town.

Which route is generally taken by the taxis? I have read that though the Massinagudi route is shorter, but it is very tough with steep and narrow roads

Yes.. Masinagudi is via Kalhatty, where it is very steep but a little shorter. It depends on the taxi operator but if you insist that you need to go through Masinagudi, they will oblige.

What is the general taxi fare (small car - 4 seater) from Mysore to Ooty and how much time it takes? Can anyone suggest me a good cab service which can be booked in advance.

I am also interested as I plan to take this journey in January.

OH doesn't travel well so I may have to rethink my route.

Any ideas would be very welcome.

Thanks

Do you know how long the bus takes?

Is the road in good condition and very bendy?

My wife is not a good traveller hence the choice of taxi. At least we stop anytime she wants to throw up!

It should take anywhere between 5 to 6 hours depending on the class of service and the route taken. The roads are a little bendy in the ghats. You have options to choose from the basic to volvo ac buses. But, this is a great vfm option.
