If you are trying to find your way to us, hopefully, the following directions should make it easy for you.

From Coimbatore Airport

There are plenty of flight connections to Coimbatore, which is the closest airport, about 70 kms from here. If you let us know, a cab can always be sent down to pick you up. Otherwise, you can hire a cab from the airport. It is a comfortable 2-hour drive from the airport to Kotagiri.

From Coimbatore Railway Station

Most trains will get you till Coimbatore.  From here you have the option of taking a passenger train, bus or cab to Mettupalayam and from there on to Kotagiri. There are 4 passenger trains and 1 long distance train between Coimbatore and Mettupalayam. These trains ply bettween 5 am and 5 pm.  The passenger trains do not ply on Sundays.

From Mettupalayam Railway Station or Bus Stand

The Nilgiri Express train runs from Chennai to Mettupalayam. From Mettupalayam, you can take a bus or a cab to Kotagiri. Frequency of buses can be anywhere between half an hour to an hour, depending on the time of the day.

From Mysore

If you are landing in Bangalore, you either take a train, bus or a cab to Mysore (about 4 hours). Once in Mysore, you can take a bus to Kotagiri. The route will take you through Gudalur to Ooty where you will have to change buses or take a cab to Kotagiri. The distance between Ooty and Kotagiri is about 30 kms.

Travelling in a cab from Mysore to Kotagiri, the route will be as follows: Mysore – Gundlupet – Bandipur – Theppakadu – Masinagudi – Ooty – Kotagiri. Make sure that the cab takes a left turn at Theppakadu as the route through Gudalur is long and tiring. Most people would be able to help you if you ask for the Kalahatti Ghat route. The total distance from Mysore to Kotagiri is around 100 kms.
