Travel within city
The best way to travel around the town is using the public transport buses or by jeep. Due to hilly terrain autos cannot operate frequently. There are buses available from one end of the town to the other and this is the easiest way to travel around the town. They are also cheap.
Jeeps are available for tours to the coffee plantations and since most of these plantations are on steep roads no other vehicles can climb these roads. Cabs are also available through the hotels. They cost around Rs 500 a day excluding driver charges.
