This place's at the end of the world. Closest railway station is 100km away.
Getting to Khajuraho:
Air: Indian Airlines and Jet Airways (the two most expensive airlines) still have a monopoly to use the tiny airport of Khajuraho, low-budget airlines have no flights here. So either you pay up and fly or you take train and bus/taxi. Flying here is grossly overpriced, moreover you have to make reservations well in advance.
Train+bus/taxi: If you are coming from the direction of Delhi/Agra/Gwalior you are advised to take the comfortable, safe and efficient Shatabdi or Taj Express to Jhansi. From there you can either take a bus (in off-season they are very infrequent, very bumpy ride and the 180km journey can last 8 to 9 hours) or you pay up and take a taxi. (it should cost no more than 1500-1800.- Rs, haggle hard!) The taxi option is better and lasts only 4,5-5 hours. It is still much cheaper than flying.
Not a simple thing out of season. We wanted to go to Varanasi from here. Air travel was impossible, flights were booked solid for days, and if it hadn't, the tickets would have cost a fortune anyway. There was one bus to Varanasi (15 hours!) but after a bus ride like this you're dead for 2 days. Long-distance bus travel in India is no fun at all. I've tried it, so I know what I am talking about. We could have gone to Satna by taxi (130km) and take a train there but I decided against it because trains from Satna to Varanasi often depart from Mumbai (very far away) and they can be 6 or 8 hours late when reaching Satna. If they are not, Varanasi is still 8 hours away. Satna is town of 200,000, very poor even by Indian standards and waiting 6-8 hours at the railway station of a town like this certainly won't be the highlight of your trip to India. So we took a taxi again to Varanasi. It took almost 9 hours to get to Varanasi city center (cc. 420 km) with the Ambassador and cost 4.500.- Rs. (haggled down from 6.800.- Rs). It was not cheap but there were no other sensible (for us) choices.

There is no railway station close to Khajuraho and if traveling from Delhi by rail you will need to get off at either Mahoba (61kms), Harpalpur (94kms) or Jhansi (172kms). The Mumbai-Allahabad line runs from Mumbai, Kolcutta and Varanasi and stop at Satna (177kms).

Travelling to Khajuraho by air is probably the best option and the quickest. Air India have flights daily from Delhi and link to Agra, Khajuraho and Varanasi and these flights are usually very popular so you need to book in advance. I flew from Varanasi to Khajuraho.

I know it's more expensive, but the roads between Khajuraho and Varanasi can make your life miserable... Our guide adviced us to take a plane and in less than one hour you are in Varanasi... confortable and easy.

there is always a camel for hire at the entrances of the kamasutra temple. ask to take you to your hotel. the cost will be a couple more dollars than the taxi cost.

There are regular bus services which go through Khajuraho from Jhansi, Mahoba, Satna, Harpalpur and Agra. Around Khajuraho there are rickshaws ready and available to take you around.

When we stopped over in the middle of the road and had tea, we saw men and mostly women carrying woods on their heads. I think they have walked a long way and the woods are for use in the kitchens.
