Traversing Udaipur on a Happy Pocket

This article is written by Varsha Mewada, one of our top HolidayIQ reviewers. As a part of the #ByInvitation programme, we had invited her to write a blog on her experience.

Author Bio: Varsha suffers from selfie phobia but is otherwise happy to capture nature and its creations when obliged. The process of travelling, according to her, is a journey towards becoming self-reliant and confident. She is passionate about history and loves exploring historically relevant destinations. 

To wake up breathing the clean air fragrant with unfamiliar shrubs is a surreal experience for a Mumbaikar.  Before you start making any assumptions, let me tell you that I had woken up in a creaky sleeper class railway compartment in the middle of nowhere instead of a historical suite at some heritage hotel!

Why this story?

It is because I am going to share my experience of travelling to Udaipur on a low-cost budget.

The trip to Udaipur had materialised at the last minute and I found myself on a train bound for Udaipur in the next four days. I had booked a tatkal railway ticket through a ticketing agent (to get a confirmed berth) and it had cost me INR 800 for a two-way ticket in the12995 Mumbai-Bandra-Udaipur Superfast Express!

If you wish to book cheaper tickets you can try to book a tatkal ticket yourself through IRCTC’s official website.  The 12995 has got convenient departure and arrival timings. I alighted at Udaipur Railway Station around 9:30 am
