After first two days in Pondicherry my next stop was Kanyakumari. So I took bus from Pondcherry for Villupuram which is nearby main junction as the Pondicherry has very few trains. So I took bus from Pondicherry for Villupuram, the fare was 18 rupees in ordinary bus. After reaching Villupuram I had a layout of 3 hours. I was travelling by 12633 Chennai Egmore to Kanyakumari train. Meanwhile I had worst chapatti on station which made me sick also. Nevertheless I woke up in Kanyakumari early morning. Just a perfect one night journey from Chennai or Pondicherry.

Pondicherry-Villupuram-Trichy-Madurai-Tirunelveli-Kanyakumari, is the only best route. Will take around 8 hours, in a stretch. Recommended to halt and go. Starts in the afternoon and halt in Madurai. I went by my own car, and on the way went to Thiruparankundram Temple, in Madurai. Then went to Nellaiappar Temple in Tirunelveli. Halted in Tirunelveli, and next day went to Kanyakumari, which is just 100 km from there.
