Driving Tour activities in India
The tourist office in the town centre can put you in touch with agencies that run day trips to Mudumalai National Park via the Pykhara Dam (minimum 15 people) starting at 09:30 and returning at 19:00, with just a quick spin through the park. Trips to Coonoor and surrounds are also possible.
A better alternative is to hire a taxi for the day and go as you please. The rates are set at around Rs450 for a four-hour trip around Ooty, or around Rs1100 for a full day.
KTDC offers tours, leaving from the Tourist Reception Centre at the KTDC Hotel Chaithram on Central Station Rd. The Kanyakumari Day Tour visits Padmanabhapuram Palace, Kanyakumari and the nearby Suchindram Temple.
