The city of Mysore is easily accessible by air via major cities in India. It is also connected by train with numerous cities and by road with other cities in Southern India via Bengaluru (Bangalore).
Once you are in the city of Mysore, you can travel around by a rental car which you can hire through your Hotel. Another mode of
local transport in Mysore
