There are no AC buses from Rameswaram to Kanyakumari. If there is no train service on that particular day of the week, then one is left at the mercy of SETC. I thought that 'Ultra Deluxe: would mean a good comfortable non AC bus but what we got was a noisy, shaking, shattering bus with no TV or music. The worst part was that the driver gave the bus to the conductor to drive half of the way! The roads selected by the operator was perhaps one of the worst roads in India! By the time we reached, our backs were breaking.
Please, why can't the TN Govt improve bus facilities on this route?

I would recommend to travel by any other private A/c buses rather than travelling in a Government bus. It was a very terrible experience. The bus condition was not good. Also the bus left Rameswaram at around 7:30 Pm in the evening and we reached Kanyakumari at 3:30 Am in the morning which was a tiring journey. Also there were insects in the bus which bit me and led to Allergy.

Excellent road, seems to be part of golden quadrilateral project. I could test the upper speed limits of my Car. We all enjoyed the smooth road with no hurdles, nice road-marking and signages. Nice wind mill views on the way. Seems to be ocean of wind mills before Kanyakumari.

The journey was not fruitful. It was during night that we travelled from Rameswaram to Kanyakumri by a govt bus. We reached, Kanyakumari at about early 3 am in the morning. The food at the halting points were not so good. The bus was full of insects and mosquitoes.

I started from Rameshwaram by bus at 7.30. The bus was from Tamil Nadu State Road Transport Corporation (TNSTC) and I booked the ticket from busindia. On the way at 11 pm bus stopped for dinner. Bus seat quality is good but not the best. Anyone can travel by bus. But if you want to sleep in the bus then you need to choose any other bus.

The distance between Rameshwaram and Kanyakumari is 325 km and it takes six and a half hours, to reach Rameshwaram by car. The shortest route is Ramanathapuram, Kizhakari, Sikkal, Tuticorin, Tiruchendur and Koodankula; driving along the coastal road. Only problem is that, when it rains, the road condition really deteriorates and it can be a difficult drive. But if you have patience and time, this drive can be a very memorable one, as the scenic beauty along this road, is very good.
