Mysore to Ooty via Masinagudi ( 136 km ): Mysore City —- 24km — –> Nanjangud — 43km –> Gundlupet — 20km –> Bandipur National Park — 8km –> Karnataka Tamilnadu border — 5km –> Theppakkadu (leaves NH67) —- 7km –> Masinagudi — 8km –> Ghat section starts ( 36 hairpin bends ahead ) — 14km –> Joins NH67 (Ghat section ends) — 7km –> Ooty

Mysore to Ooty via Gudalur ( 183km ): Mysore City — 24km –> Nanjangud — 43km –> Gundlupet –20km –> Bandipur National Park — 5km –> Karnataka Tamilnadu border — 7km –> Theppakkadu — 17km –> Gudalur Town — 46km –> Pykara Lake — 21km –> Ooty

So its actually two routes to chose from after Theppakkadu.

One goes via Masinagudi and the other via Gudallur town. The first looks a bit shorter , but a lot tough to drive thanks to the steep climb and those hairpin bends. Irrespective of the route, the road quality is pretty decent all the way from Mysore to Ooty.
