We started by train in the night. So we couldn't see the view. The toilets can be more clean in the train. Water facilities were bad. Overall cleanliness to be improved. The train was on time. We travelled to Yercaud from Salem junction by bus. This offered a good view of the hill.

Average experience. We can't expect more from Railways. We reached early morning by train and that has put us bit trouble. Because check in time was only by 12 Noon. Better if hotels or resorts operate 24 hours check in. If we have our own vehicle either from Chennai or from Sales, it would be preferable. Other wise we have to take a makeshift stay for 5 to 6 hours in Salem. Only night train available and it reaches in the early morning ( by 4 or 4.30 AM).

Peaceful travel. Good Seats. Selected Stops. Generally reaches on time. Good Travel. Better to go also by Shatabdi Express from Chennai which is also passing thru the same station. Tickets can be booked online in irctc as well. Early booking can give you the option of choosing best seats.

The train was good. 6 hours maximum to reach Salem. From there take bus or cab. Go by car if possible. They will charge you 800. Auto is more cheaper. Salem is a good place though. You can visit Salem if possible. The station has everything except accommodation.

Had an excellent holiday with my family at Yercaud. I travelled during the month of April-May and the climate was pleasant. Most of the tourist spots are located within few kilometres from the lake. It would be difficult to bargain with the taxi drivers and we paid about Rs. 700 to cover Lady's...more »

We travelled in a night train. The ride was really very smooth and there were no jerks. Hence we had a good nights sleep. Seats, pillows and bed sheets were in good condition and also the toilets were not bad. They also did not stink except for a few instances.

Many travellers prefer this train because it starts early morning before work time. So they feel itís the easiest way to travel for work. Another reason is its travel expenses are too cheap to compare to any other transport. It start on time is also the highlight of this train.

But in some situation I felt hard to travel because many of people (students, labour, ordinary people) were travelling along with my train but in unreserved compartment there were many people travelling in bad situation. Lack of space is the reason. Many students used to hang on windows of the train to travel for their destination. So I request IRCTC to add two more compartments for unreserved people.

Had a comfortable journey No problems at all. Train was on time and I had booked the tickets in AC. Slept like a log and reached my destination in 6 hours. Toilets were not that clean but one cannot complain. Best way to travel is by train. Recommend it.
