We travelled in sleeper class with friends. we went to friends marriage in Cochin. It was a amazing experience. Natural air, morning was so pleasant with fresh air of Kerala. It was raining so had a amazing experience in train. I loved it. Best way to travel from Bangalore. Overall, good experience.
It was not great as our car was not well-maintained and had some trouble enroute. It was difficult to mend as communicating was tough. Road was nice and driver knows which places to visit so it made more beautiful. I would recommend to take your own car if you are travelling from Bangalore.
