Advice appreciated please. I want to take a train between Igatpuri( near Nasik, Maharashtra)to Udaipur.

What is the best route? Looking at maps, guidebook etc... looks like I need to return to Mumbai and then take train through Ahemedabad. Though would be good to just continue north and avoid Mumbai!I have heard there are few trains to Udaipur.

Thanks

Talking Not Mumbai??

Convenience wise, Mumbai would be most convenient. Since you wish to avoid Mumbai, you could proceed to Vapi or Surat by bus from Nasik [Igatpuri to Nasik is just a short hop]. Avoid Vapi for its horrible chemical laden air. In Nasik there are THREE main bus stands, so inquire in the Igatpuri to Nasik bus as to which bus stand to head for.

I don't know if there are Govt. buses, but some private buses do ply. This is what I found on the net.

From Surat, there is just one direct train to Udaipur. 2995 Bandra Terminus to Ajmer/Udaipur Express. Udaipur bogies are fewer, I presume. Runs only on Wed, Fri, Sundays ; dep. Bandra Terminus is 15:45; departure Surat is at 20:35 and arrival Udaipur is at 08:50 the next day.

Nasik to Surat buses are likely to start between 8 am and 10 am. If so, you will reach Surat in six hours, with enough time to catch the 20:30 train.

If this cannot be managed, reach Ahmedabad somehow. Then there are many buses/trains between Ahmedabad and Udaipur.

Another train 6502 runs only once a week [mon] betweeen Manmad and Ahmedabad. Seats are impossible / difficult as its from Bangalore.

The old Portuguese colony of Daman is just three and a half hours from Nasik and IMers have liked it too. Spend a day [or two] there and head for Vapi [20 km] just in time to catch the same train at 18:28.

If you travel to Khodala [50 mins from Igatpuri] There is a mountainous and very scenic route from Khodala and/or Jawhar to Vapi [or Palghar]. If you have the stomach for winding roads and old Govt. buses, this is a really forested and scenic route. The bus goes via Khodala and Jawhar. [went in 1996 don't remember details now][route is Khodala, Jawhar, Kothar, Silvassa, Vapi]

For the view and the Forest, I'd do the last route. But can't recommend it to foreigners as its a very bumpy ride in places. Most people on the bus will be tribals, quite innocent people. No one will speak English.
The Universe is an ellipsoid?... or a Spheroid?? If the sphere smiles... it becomes an ellipse. This IS Creation.

Dear Avidtrekker,

For your information, the distance from Bandra Terminus to Udaipur by 2995 comes to 948Kms. with a journey time of 17 Hrs.

The distance from Mumbai Central to Udaipur via Ahmedabad comes to 492+298=790 Kms. with a running time of 18 Hrs. if 2933 & 9944are opted and this also involves change-over from BG to MG in Ahmedabad.

Dear vsp27759, as far as my humble knowledge goes, there are NO night buses operating in the mountains and jungles. There is a possibility of privately operated night buses [my assumption] on the better road between Nasik and Pardi.

Its a generally safe area. Nothing to worry about even if travelling at night, except maybe ghosts

Dear Avidtrekker,

If I am asked to travel to Udaipur from Igatpuri, I will go upto Khandwa; then I will take the MG Train from Khandwa to Ratlam; and then 2995 in Ratlam;
