A friend in Pondicherry is keen to meet up in Kerala for a bit later this month. I'm in Mumbai. Is there anywhere that's equally easy to get to for both of us by train? Coast is preferred but not vital... I just want as little travel hassle for both of us as possible. I have a few ideas based on research I've already done but am always open to suggestions from the friendly IndiaMike community and their encyclopedic knowledge of India!

Kochi is probaly the easiest and "almost" equidistant. It is easier for your friend from Pondi to get to kochi than calicut. Calicut being closer to mumbai by a full 3 hours.

IMO, Kochi (cochin) it should be.

It depends on how your friend wants to travel. If they are flying, then either Kochi or Trivandrum are a short hop from Chennai.

If going by train, then I too would suppose Chennai/Kochi would be the answer, but it is quite a long trip; 12 hours train, I think.

If they want to be driven, then I'd suggest you leave the coast, and meet up in the hills somewhere. I'd leave the suggestion as to where to someone more knowledgeable.
