The journey was nice and it takes around 14 hours to reach there. Sleeper bus is preferred as you don't want to bust your backs travelling. The landscape which you see is very nice especially the windmill farms which you get as you near your destination. Overall journey is comfortable and worth taking.

We went to Kanyakumari with our own Ford Ikon Car and we left Bangalore at around 2:00 am on Diwali night and reached around 10 am. Road was smooth and at night there was not much off traffic so driving was comfortable. We got disappointed by paying toll fee and we paid 1300 rupees toll enroute. But felt really happy to see the sight view while travelling in the morning when we were close to KK. Mountains, wind mills, cloud natural beauty of this location is very attractive. I will recommend you to plan it by car so that you can manage your time and enjoy more!

This train is the best train as it starts at around 5 pm from Bangalore and reaches around 8AM at Nagercoil Junction, which is around 20 kms from Kanyakumari. The only drawback is that this train does not have pantry car, so better to carry your own food.

We took the Bangalore- Trivandrum bus from Bangalore of a Friday night. It was AC-sleeper bus and we got down at Nagercoil. The bus was good and on time. The operator provided pillows and blankets. They took a halt somewhere during the night. Overall journey was very comfortable and smooth.

I had picked this train as the journey time was less as compared to the other direct trains to Kanyakumari. We enjoyed nice view of lotus ponds during the travel. We travelled in 3rd AC and the train was delayed just for 15 minutes to reach the destination. From this station we can get auto/taxi to Kanyakumari. It was about a distance of 17 km.
