Your Best option in terms of Comfort and added bonus of scenic attractions on the way is by your own cab. However, the flip side is the cost. Not only would they charge you for the return leg as well, the cost can be amost 10 (or even more) than the cost of a public transport (read Bus / Train).

If it is the cab, you can drive to Mysore via Coimbatore, Coonoor, Ooty, Bandipur which means you get to do another hill station (Ooty), a wild life sanctuary (Bandipur).

You can still do this by a bus, but i am not sure on where you board them and where you switch buses. Maybe others in this forum, with relevant knowledge of the public transport system may help . . .

hi Living_a_dream , you can try a bus/taxi trip from Munnar to Coimbatore and then again a bus to Mysore. Munnar to Coimbatore s 160 kms approx and Coimbatore to Mysore is another 200 Kms. but as mrajank had mentioned , a cab trip is the best possible option.

a direct train travel is also not possible through ernakulam,coimbatore or the nearby rly stations.

Cabs would charge around INR10000 .

I was curious to Know whether your itinerary is freezed and whether you would touch Kochi or ernakulam at any point of your itinerary in which case you can opt for a train from Ernakulam to Coimbatore and then a cab to Mysore .

PS: There are some KSRTC buses from Kerala (starting from Trivandrum) to Mysore, however there are no fixed timings and you have to enquire in any of the KSRTC bus stands. I am so sure about this as I was coming back from Coorg to bangalore today and on the way the same bus overtook us.

Sleeper Rs/216, a/c 3 -Rs 611, a/c-2- Rs- 846.
