I have never been on Indian railway, would it be possible to get a train from Varasani to Chennai on FTQ at Varasani ticket counter, are these tickets difficult to get at short notice???
Tks

Tks

Try train 12296. It runs daily from Mughal Sarai outside Varanasi to Chennai Central and takes 38 hours. Go as soon as you can to the Varanasi Tourist Bureau. If the FTQ allocation has not already been sold you can buy up to about 4 hours before departure,

If that train is not possible look into the Varanasi-Kolkata-Chennai route changing trains in Kolkata.

No flying! On my first trip to India in '82 I spent the first day of my 27th birthday on a train from Madras to Delhi. Trains!! The longer the ride the better

I couldn't agree more. Trains are my preferred mode of transportation.

You simply go to the loo, your choice western or Indian style toilets are available. But do bring a roll of TP with you.

I agree too, indian trains are the most happening place and flying should only be reserved for extreme situations
