"Ghat drive with river flowing by the side"

Posted 16 Sep

Travelled by: Car

Travelled as: Group

Though we booked for a day train from Yeshwantpur to Udupi, we could not travel because the train was preponed from 1st Sept, 2014. We were 4 people to reach Udupi and we quickly arranged an Indigo Taxi. They charged for 800 km totally for both the way. Though it worked out costly, we enjoyed the trip because of the post monsoon water and greenery. It was highway till Hassan or so. At Sakleshpur outskirts, we had lunch at Hotel Ossoor. It was a pure vegetarian hotel and the mini meal had appalam, payasam, poori etc. Probably only the rice was limited which was more than enough for me. The location of the hotel was good with nice surroundings. The river was flowing along with our taxi. Somebody told that it was River Sita. Though it was cloudy with slight drizzles all the way, ...Read More




"Good destination and route but bus choice was wrong"

I traveled to Udupi on 24th October night by Durgamba Motors. It was a sleeper bus starting from K.R Puram. Seats were good, although the seat cover kept sliding. There was a led light and charging point, both didn\'t work. The initial travel inside the city was uncomfortable, sudden acceleration, sudden brakes. But after crossing the city it was fine. Road condition after Hasan isn\'t good, I think Volvo/ multiaxle will be much more comfortable. The place they halted at night smelt horrible. Haven\'t tried the food over there though.



"Ample of charging points in the bus"

Traveled in AC sleeper. Journey was comfortable. Since it was a night journey not too many stops in between. Just a break for 10-15 minutes at Kamat Restaurant. Has ample charging points. They provide only blankets. No Pillow, no water so carry your own bottle.




"Driver drove the bus very roughly"

I took an AC sleeper bus from Bangalore to Udupi booked from Redbus. Boarded at 11 pm - arrived at 9 am (1 hour late due to traffic). One thing which I liked was the van service which took me from the point near to my residence to the main boarding point. Berth was average, one side ride was good but while coming back to Bangalore the bus driver drove very roughly, many passengers complained but he didn't listen.




"Journey was awesome in train by enjoying the nature"

Journey was awesome in train by enjoying the nature. From Bengaluru City Junction train leave by 8 - 8. 20. We have booked sleeper coach and S2 was our coach. Coach was very neat. No food seller will come inside. Better you pack something to eat before entering into train that's better. There was a bio-toilet in the coach so it was clean. The train reaches Udupi by 10 Am. Overall, nice train journey.
