First I was let down, because the first train to run was a night train.
Then after some time they introduced a day train.

That is when my thirst increased further!

PS : And it still remains!

Hi Mohsin,

Really awesome pics. I've done this stretch but on the night train. Really wanna do the trip on a day train just for the picturesque route.

Its a must travel route... And this is the right season.
The hills start losing its green as summer approaches and you will not see too many streams.. I suggest u plan for a trek if possible.

cheers

Default Water streams

Waters are always a delight for trekkers and nature lovers.
This route contains too many beautiful waterstreams and falls.

Its hard to click most of the streams as they appear all of a sudden
and by the time you get the camera ready for the shot its already gone!! only to regrett for having missed to capture a beautiful view.

The streams that i was able to capture are those visible from the top view which is relatively an easy angle to shoot in this stretch.

Not to forget that i did get to see 2-3 big waterfalls but as usual by the time i set the view its gone!!!

This place is like a magic box, you never know what it offers and when.
You got to be ready all the while with too little time to think before you click. Makes you regret most of the time

Awesome photos! Couple of times I had been to Mangalore, I have travelled only by bus in the night. I wish I could go there, just for this train journey atleast!

How much KM do you think will be the distance between a driveable road and this railway track?

By train it takes approximately 11 Hrs(~500KM) and by road around 9.5 to 10 hrs (~350KM).
Its a must go Train... Preferably during this season. Summer wont be great.

By road you do get to see these ghats but by train you go thru the ghats that the difference.
Distance between drivable road and railway track depends.
At some places you get to see the roads and other places there are no signs of any road .. just hills eveywhere.

But i guess it should be well within 10 -20KM radius.
