It was too crowded and dirty compartments. The food was not upto the mark. After reaching TVM, we had to bargain a lot with the taxi fellows, it was frustrating. Overall travel experience was not happy one. Return journey was not so bad. Though we travelled by 3rd A/C the coach was not clean.

Overall good, but few pockets of very bad roads. Overtaking from the left, over speeding, etc. can be handled. But it was impossible when it came to vehicles coming towards you on the fast lane in the opposites direction. No enforcement of traffic laws. It seemed to me that the traffic police do not have any idea of traffic laws. Made a side day trip to Coonnoor. The roads nearly killed us.
