Hello!

What's the best way to get from Thirivannamali to Rishikesh by way of Varanasi? Wanting to stay a few days in Varanasi then head to Rishikesh. I'm having a hard time figuring this out. Does Thiru not have a line to Varanasi because it's small, because I can't seem to find the train. Thanks for helping the railway challenged.

Would a 40 hour train ride to get to Varanasi work for you? If yes take a train from Katpadi to Mughal Sarai and then a cab / auto / bus to Varanasi.

From Varanasi take a train to Haridwar and then cab / auto / bus to Rishikesh.

A good option will be travel to Chennai and then take the Rajdhani Express / Duronto / Garib Rath to Delhi and then another train / bus to Haridwar.

Thiru-Varanasai-Chennai

I didn't see a train from Thiru to Chennai.. Hmm.. I'm using the indian railways iPhone app to look up trains- does that not have every line, maybe?
