About 125km from Mysore is the beautiful hill station of Ooty or Udagamandalam – if you like tongue-twister names. Unlike Mysore, this is a quiet, small town. As one moves from Mysore to Ooty, the tall buildings and bazaars give way to lush green hillsides, lakes and dams. Ooty is truly the perfect place for a weekend picnic. If the idea appeals to you, how about booking a Mysore to Ooty taxi for the next weekend?
