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.

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.

It was comfortable and very interesting travel. The landscapes enroute was good and eye catching. One must carry with him plenty of water and a good route map and music CDs of one's choice. Small pillow will be very helpful. The driver should be able to converse in Hindi and English both. Light snack should be carried.

It was my life time dream to witness sunset and sunrise in Kanyakumari. I got an opportunity to do so by winning a bloggers competition organised by India Bloggers and planned a visit to South India in the month of Oct 2014.

First I visited Madurai and then Rameshwaram and finally travelled to Kanyakumari by Innova vehicle being a middle aged person I never felt tired while travelling and it's the best vehicle to drive with. Local transport is advisable since roads are also very good with restaurants, dhabas at every 10 km. One should carry water bottles for avoiding outside waters.

It was the second time when I had to visit Chennai, and we planned to make the most out of our journey. So, we decided to visit the Rameshwaram Temple, and from there on travelled all the way to Kanyakumari via road.

The NH is damn nice and the smooth roads are not so often seen around in North India. Though consisting of about three toll plazas, we travelled all the way at a speed near about 100 kilometres per hour.

The journey is beautiful as, you will be able to see a large, very large number of wind turbines. Awesomeness in full, There are some rock structures too that make you stop and snap them. It was a nice journey.
