The traveling in sleeper bus was very good and the bus staff provided us with the neat bed spread and bed. There was AC through out the journey, which was was very good. However I did not like the behavior of the diver, he was very rude in talking to the travellers.

We look the train from Bangalore city Railway Station to Ernakulam. From Ernakulam we went by taxi to Munnar. It was an overnight journey. It works out cheaper. It is better to carry food because the quality of food served in trains is not good. Toilets were clean the day we travelled but can't guarantee that.
