    For ooty side it used to be 9 PM - 6 AM until recently. Not sure if it has changed to 6 PM now. On 27th Nov I entered mudumalai around 7:30 pm and exited from Bandipur at 9:30 pm

    @Shams:- I am planning to leave bangalore by 5.30 AM and return from wayanad at 3 PM. so there won't be any problem at Bandipur forest entrance right?

    I usually take the state highway (mysore road) till mysore, take the ooty road and take a diversion towards nanjangud and reach gundlupet. From there take diversion after the Gundlupet police station towards right which head towards Wayanad.

    Starting back at 3 p.m shouldn't be a problem.

    Not sure if you have decided your itinery. We covered the following in a day (started early) in the below order

    1. Waterfalls (do not remember the name)
    2. Eddekel Caves
    3. Wayanad Wildlife Sanctuary (had to hire a separate Jeep)

    We had stayed at Woodlands Hotel which was good but a bit on the costly side

    -soochipara and meenmutti are the 2 waterfalls in wayanad. you ll have to walk a lot to reach them.
    4. chembra peak is also a nice place if you don't mind walking some distance.
