Nagercoil Junction is very near to Kanyakumara. I think new train 17235 ( Bangalore to Nagercoil). added by the Indian Railways is very useful for people travelling from Bangalore and can save more time. Travelling by train is a very good choice and safe to travel by train.

It was a nice ride since I had started from Bangalore at 5 AM and reached Kanyakumari in the evening at 4.30 PM. On the way I had breakfast in Dharmapuri and Lunch in Madurai. I took the toll road straight to Kanyakumari. It was a very nice experience, specially after watching the beautiful sunrise! More »

The train was running on time and travel experience was fun as we are two families travelling and we enjoyed a lot. There was no food available in the train so have to buy food from stations. I think this is the only train which connects Bangalore to Kanyakumari so not too much options available in term of train. More »

We have been to Kanyakumari in our Ford Figo and the overall experience was very good. The roads to Kanyakumari are good, we won\'t feel much strain. Having four persons on board our figo was very stiff and reliable at all the times and at all types of road. More »

The roads are simply superb. You will see a lot of wind power generating stations on the road side and also many places where salt is produced. I use Google maps to explore India and reach out to places. You can park your car in the hotel and also separate parking is available in Kanyakumari for vehicles. Main places not to miss in Kanyakumari is Vivekananda Memorial Rock and the Vivekananda Kendra. More »
