It takes 7 hours in Bus from Madurai to Kanyakumari. 10 and half hours in Bus from Kanyakumari to Rameshwaram. 6-7 hours in Bus/Car from Rameshwaram to Kodaikanal.

It\'s ok to try the bus - only if you are a travel freak, enjoy the green all around you and enjoy the adventurous travel. Otherwise, it\'s hectic.

Travelling by car is a good experience. All the way is four road. Driving your vehicle is the best with good view of the wind mills on the way near Nagercoil. Also it helps you to reach the destination faster. Train takes six hours and bus takes 7 hours. Taking a break at Tirunelveli helps. More »
