It was good experience while traveling from Madurai to Kanyakumari. We reached there in a great morning and a wonderful experience in Kanyakumari. The meditation hall at Vivekananda Rock Memorial was very awesome and the Sunrise and Sunset was very memorable. The three sea meeting point also very attractive and memorable.

We took bus from Madurai Bus Stop to Kanyakumari. We dont have any reservation to Kanyakumari. But lucky enough to get a semi sleeper bus operated by Tamilnadu road transport. Bus was okay and it started at 10:30 pm. We reached Kanyakumari by 4 am. I thought I was going to miss the sunrise. But thankful to the driver who reached the destination on time.

It takes 7 hours in Bus from Madurai to Kanyakumari. 10 and half hours in Bus from Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram. 6-7 hours in Bus/Car from Rameshwaram to Kodaikanal. You have only ordinary Tamil Nadu Govt Buses plying from Madurai to Kanyakumari and Rameshwaram. It\'s ok to try the bus - only if you are a travel freak, enjoy the green all around you and enjoy the adventurous travel. Otherwise, it\'s hectic.

The journey was good, the main point which I noticed at Madurai and Kanyakumari station was station are very clean. Train journey on time but toilets were not properly clean. Overall experience by train was good. We see nature's beauty on entire route, Farms of bananas, coconut trees etc. At Madurai station there was good food court, so you can easily buy what you want.

"Train takes six hours and bus takes 7 hours in all together"

Travelling by car is a good experience. All the way is four road. Driving your vehicle is the best with good view of the wind mills on the way near Nagercoil. Also it helps you to reach the destination faster. Train takes six hours and bus takes 7 hours. Taking a break at Tirunelveli helps.

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