Cochin to Mysore

by jacq_lynn

Hi,

Is there any train from Cochin to Mysore? Whats the option going from Cochin to Mysore besides flying. Thanks

RE: Cochin to Mysore

by robine

Yes - Indian Railways go EVERYWHERE!

RE: RE: Cochin to Mysore

by jacq_lynn

Isn't a direct one or I have to change train somewhere?

RE: RE: Cochin to Mysore

by robine

Sorry, I don't remember, and the Indian Railways website seems to be down. As far as I recall (it was some years ago), I travelled east from Kerala by bus, via the Periyar Game Reserve (recommended) en route.

RE: RE: Cochin to Mysore

by jacq_lynn

Hows the bus anyway? The long distant one. Do u recommend for long haul journeys?

RE: RE: Cochin to Mysore

by shobhanaj

Take the train for any journey. Since this is the monsoon season across the country, it would probably be safer to take a train than a bus. If you do need to take a bus try and not take something that is over 12-14 hours long. Again have a look at www.irctc.co.in or also http://www.indianrail.gov.in/ for information. You may have to change trains to get to from Cochin to Mysore

You can go by bus, its around 380 km journey, which will take around 10hrs
There are many buses on this route and its the best way to go from Cochin
Also there are many Volvo buses in this route, booking wont be a headache compare to trains.
There are no trains stright to Mysore, if u want train journey you have to take some other route through Salem I think.
I advice you bus route 'cose there is lot much to see around

There are no direct trains from Ernakulam to Mysore. You could also explore travelling by Inter State Night Coaches (Buses) run by private operators like KPN,Shama. Please enquire at Ensign Taxi's Jose Junction, M.G. Road, Ernakulam

Travel Tips for Kochi

Toddy

by PierreZA

Toddy bars can be found in and around Kochi. Liquor made from coconut palm is served here. It is best to ask a local to accompany you to one of these. It is not particularly easy on the palate, but a nice way of mixing with the locals.

Once more at Krishna Cafe

by cochinjew about Krishna Cafe

Backpackers and the tourists visiting Cochin has really degraded the local cuisine in that most of the restaurants in Fort Cochin cater to the tourists and the quality of the food has gone down. But Krishna Cafe does not have to do anything like that, they serve the original fare from South India..
each of my lunch or dinner at any of the restaurants serving the tourist trade in Fort Cochin cost me between 125 to 200 inr but the dinner at krishna cafe is less than 35 inr, four to five times cheaper. I also happen to like their food Paper Dosay Masala

Santa Cruz Basilica

by illumina

The church of Santa Cruz was originally built by the Portuguese from around 1505, and was elevated to a Cathedral by Pope Paul IV in 1558. It was spared by the protestant Dutch, but was demolished by the British when they took over Kochi in 1795; a new building was commissioned by Bishop Ferreira in 1887. This was consecrated in 1905 and proclaimed a Basilica by the Pope John Paul II in 1984.

The cathedral has two large spires, and the exterior, as you can see in the first photo, is painted a bright white. The second photo shows the interior, which is colourfully painted.

Chinese Fishing Nets

by Skibbe

No trip to Cochin is complete without seeing the Chinese Fishing Nets. They were supposedly introduced to the region from the court of Kublai Khan and are now the city's symbol. I enjoyed walking along the dock, smelling the fish, and watching the fishermen work them.

Kochi

by bungi333

Kochi is a nice little historic town/city. It holds quite a bit of Judeo-Christian history in India. It is one of the harbour towns in India, and located close to the ocean. So plenty of water bodies for those who like to be in places with lots of water. It is the cultural and commercial capital of Kerala.

Hence, it makes a great place for historical/museum travel and arts and culture travel.

A great town to spend a day or two just walking a bit and exploring around and begin to sink into vacation mode. It makes a great gateway to exploring Kerala.
