Starts from Bangalore at 5pm in the evening and reaches Ernakulam at 4:50 am. The train is pretty fast and reaches on time unlike the other trains. One of the best options to travel to Kerala is ticket charges are around 500 Rs. It is still better than travelling in private buses which charge almost triple the amount.

Enjoyed the trip by means of taxi, roads are good. Took seven hours to reach Kochi and visited local Kochi. Then to Cerai Beach then to Munnar. The way to Munnar from Cochin is really nice and I would love to visit this place again. The name Gods own country is suitable for the place.

I booked tickets in advance through IRCTC. One night travel to Kochi. Then I took a prepaid auto to hotel Bolgatty Island. It tooks half day to Vaikom but it was good. I booked my tickets through KTDC. Next day we went to Arthirampally, Valzchal falls. It is like treat to eyes. This is a very beautiful place and heard that many films are shot here.

We hired a cab. The journey was really comfortable. There were many refreshment stalls. It was quite relaxing. I think the best time to start the journey is at the morning time. Then we visited church, and Lulu Mall. Because we stayed for a day so we couldn't travel much. But it was really a very wonderful trip.

The train journey to Kerala from Bangalore is always good and on time. Most of the trains start during night and suitable for working people. Also multiple choices will be available to travel to Kerala. The service was too good and too many vendors to provide various food and varieties.
