    The route through kalhatti ghats has 36 hairpin bends to be exact.

    while on the ghats, just drive in your lane strictly except on hairpins.
    horn on every blind curve including hairpins!
    control speed more with gear and less with brakes!

    just be confident and enjoy the drive

    If you want to have a look, at the ghat roads, see the video in this post: http://www.teamfiat.co.in/team-fiat...-15-16-ooty-report-pg-60-a-27.html#post121917

    I have booked a hotel on Marlimund area (near the lake). This comes very close to Kavaratty range when taking the 36 hairpin bends. From google, I see there is shorter route to take a deviation from Mount n Mist Hotel to Marlimund Lake. This goes via Human Biological Institute. Please let me know if anyone of you have taken this route.

    Else, the normal route is to reach Ooty town till Botanical Garden and take deviation to Pudumund and drive up. Please suggest.
