"A Majestic train journey"

6.5/7
Posted 28 Feb

Travelled by: Train

Travelled as: Solo

I undertook a train journey from Bangalore to mysore by the Train Number 16235 which departed from Platform Number 5 from the Bangalore city railway station at around 7 am. It reached Mysore Junction at around 9:45 am thus concluding the whole journey in just around 2:45 minutes to cover the total distance which was 139 kilometers. The train was powered through 2 diesel engines in the front and the route taken was via Kengeri,bidadi, Ramanagara, Channapatna, Maddur, Mandya, Pandavapura and Srirangapatnam. There is almost a double track now between Bangalore to Mysore except for one hindrance i.e. at Srirangapatna where the process to shift the Tipu's Armoury has gained pace and would be completed latest by June 2017. The ticket fare from Bangalore to Mysore by an express train is Rs 60, ...Read More

The route from Bangalore to Mysore is pretty busy. The road has 2 lanes on either side for most part of the journey. The road condition is very good and there were no bad patches whatsoever. Restaurants of different types, right from KFC to McDonalds, to Subway, to typical South Indian joints like Adyar Anand Bhavan, Kadamba, and even a couple of Punjabi Dhabas are located virtually all along the route once you hit the Bangalore-Mysore expressway. We took the route via Mandya and Srirangapatnam. The only thing to watch out for is that there are a lot of speed breakers on the route, so you can't just keep speeding, unlike the Mumbai-Pune Expressway or the Yamuna Expressway. My only advice to travellers is if you are starting from Bangalore, try and leave as early in the morning as po ...Read More

Mysore is one of the most important tourist centers of Karnataka. This is also popularly known as the 'Sandalwood City of India', I travel Mysore almost every year, especially during Dusserah. We left early in the morning around 7 Am from Bangalore to avoid the city traffic. Around 8.30 we had breakfast at Bidadi. The roads are in good condition. We reached Sringapatna around 10.30. Visited Tipu Sultans Dome. Relaxed for one hour, then reached Mysore around 11.00 Am. First we went to Mysore Zoo and spent more than two hours in the ...Read More

"Good road with plenty of dining options"

Convenient to travel Bangalore to Mysore anytime. There are two alternative routes, one is via Bidadi-Ramanagara-Maddur-Mandya. The other is via Kanakapura- Malavalli. The first route is bigger though gets a bit crowded on weekends and the second route is more winding and has less chaos. Distance is almost similar. Plenty of buses are available apart from taxis. There are loads of eating options on the way ranging from darshini hotels to coffee days to more fancier outlets. Great for a short break and one can also continue to Ooty or Coorg from Mysore.

Sorry, we could not find preference of Travellers for this route.
