Quite good journey

Apr 2, 2016
Mode of Transport: Bus

It took us near about 7 hrs to reach but the waiting was worthwhile because the city is so beautiful that it takes your heart away and specially at night. If you want to reach on time then take roadways otherwise you can take luxurious bus but takes near 10-11 hrs to reach.

The ticket fare is a bit higher

Mar 3, 2016
Mode of Transport: Train

The indian railways started a new series of express trains called Duronto Express considered to be non stop trains (though it would have technical halts for crew change but no commercial halts). The ticket fare is a bit higher compared to normal express trains but still cheaper compared to Rajdhani express and has non-ac & ac sleeper coaches. Currently these trains are being introduced in a phased manner between different metro cities. These trains would reach the destinations 2-3 hrs earlier compared to the normal express/superfast express trains.
