"Carry blanket and be cautious!"

5.1/7

Travelled as: Solo

I travelled to Coimbatore from Chennai , my journey was fine it\'s because of only SRM Travels. The punctuality at the boarding point and at the destination is little bad. Remaining things are comfortable. Travellers, if you are doing day journey it is advisable to carry your own blanket along with you for long journey\'s. Since these travels don\'t provide blankets so, it\'s better to carry it with us and not only that, these people don\'t announce the destination places at the time of arrival. So we have to be cautious about the place where we have to board or get down.

Travelled from Chennai to Coimbatore via Uluindurpet, Athur. This was a toll road all the way up-to Coimbatore. I could reach Coimbatore in eight hours of leisurely driving. You could have save another half hour if I had left Chennai early in the morning say 6 Am instead of 10 Am, I chose to start. One can take a break at Salem for food. Adyar Ananda Bhavan has good restaurant in the Salem by pass road and hence no need to go into the city. I would recommend this route instead of the Kirhsnagairi, Dharmapuri route which would be another 50 km extra.

I have clients at Coimbatore and they travel frequently. Every time I go by Cheran Express and return by the same train. The Cheran Express normally departs on time and arrive at the destination also on time. I use to travel by second AC coach and the seats are in good condition. The train goes via Salem and Erode. You have a good journey when you travel by this train.

"Bad experience "

Travelled as: Family

Its a sitting train. Took almost 8 hours to reach coimbatore whereas we could have reached in 7 hours. Really bored to sit for 8 long hours. Also the seats are not comfortable. Sitting in 2 people place very cumbersome. Annoyed at some point. Since unreserved people are boarding in the reserved compartment and occupying the unclaimed seats. Lots of rush and the food by irctc is the worst. Dont buy anything from the irctc staff.

"Train travel from Chennai to Diyanalinga temple"

5/7
Posted 8 Apr

Travelled by: Train

Travelled as: Family

The ticket we can book only through Tatkal. As it was Monday night we got the ticket easily. The journey was not so good as the compartment door was not closing. So the wind flow was high disturbing our sleep. The train reached at 5 Am. We got a bus to Gandhipuram Bus Stop. From there we got a bus at 5. 20 Am to Diyanalinga. The driver was not in a hurry mood. So we had a nice journey. We reached at 6. 15 Am to Isha yoga centre.

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