Hi

After much planning i am heading off to Hampi shortly . I am flying in to Bangalore and land at 9.50 pm. I am hoping to catchThe Hampi express which apparently stops at Yelhanka( the nearest station to the airport ???) at around 11 pm . My question

a. Does this seem feasible - even if say my flight is late by 20-30 mins would I still be able to catch the train ?

b. What would be best mode for the travel between the airport and Yelhanka - cabs I guess seem the only feasible mode

c. If by chance I miss this train any alternates to this train ? Cant do buses am afraid .

Thanks a lot

Airport tothe yelahanka station is around 18 km. If time permits take cab to cover this distance. In case it is not possible, head to the next railway station which is Gauri bidnoor (50 km from the airport) The train arrives at GBD at 11:24.

You're flying from Mumbai to Bangalore to get an overnight train to Hospet????

Get an overnight train from Mumbai to Adoni, then a 3 hour taxi ride to Hampi.

Mumbai-Adoni trains.

@ Steven - this is brilliant - have been researching Hampi for ages and somehow never came across Adoni as possible kickoff point.Nearest train station I got was Hubli/Hospet

Have to now see if I can rework my plans.

Thanks a lot for this

We drove from Mantralayam to Hampi on Jan 2nd via Adoni, Hagari and Bellary. The road is bad......really bad. It took us 4 hours of back breaking ride in a SUV !

Suggest Hubli to Hospet ( 146 Kms - NH63 ) would be a better option with better facilities - taxi/ car /lunch enroute.

yelahanka + train reservation

Looking into the Hampi Express option, I gather from rahulcal's research that if I fly into Bengaloru I'd better head for Yelahanka than Bengaloru city to catch the train, can someone confirm this please?

Also, II was thinking of getting a train ticket when I am in Chennai on 7th Nov (SUN), would that be too late? The indian railways website indicates NOT AVAILABLE for all dates around 12th Nov, is that because we are not within the 60 days booking period or shall I just give up the Hampi Express plan?

Hey guys, you'll only have 70 minutes to catch that train.
There are so many things that can go wrong, from late flights, delayed baggage to traffic jams that I estimate you'll only have a 50% chance of catching it.
It seems really risky.
That Adoni option seems far better.

@sitarplayer- The original post was a 7 month old query.


viaggiatrice-
Where are you flying from into Bangalore?

The Hampi express (train# 6592) now departs Yelahanka at 9:45pm.
This train has availability in all classes between 8th and 15th Nov. You should book it online or via any railway reservation counter.

Thanks Bond007, I am planning to fly into Bangalore from Kochi. Original Idea was to fly to Goa and then take bus to Munnar, but I'd have to go through Banaglore anyway and I usually don't mind taking overnight trains/buses, although I have never tried in India and will prob opt for a 1st class, esp if I travel alone

Could you please let me know on which website you have found availability and I can do the booking? erail.in gives me "not available" once I click on the AV link
