Hi all India travellers,

I am going from Goa to Hampi soon, and thereafter heading south to Kochi. I have not yet figured out the best way (convinient, fast) to go from Hampi to Kochi. Any idea?

hmm... did u find a way yet?

From hampi - u can take a bus to karwar/gokarna/goa or any place on the west coast. and take a train from there to kochi. ( i havent done this myself

check out :
indianrail.gov.in ( look for trains between stations and choose konkan railways or western railways ) - this route is very scenic and will be green(since its after monsoon)

irctc.co.in for ticket availability and timings

also, airdeccan.net - u can go to bangalore and take a flight from there also.

Hi sigge,

Hampi to Goa and from there to Kochi,u have daily bus services....

If u r not gettin a bus from Goa to Kochi directly take a bus down south and you will get connecting buses to Kochi from all major towns.

cheers,

vicky :)

NB: I dont do this for money,neither am i a representative of any travel agent or tour operator...for a living i work as an Operations Lead in one of the flagship companies in Bangalore.
This is just a footnote to dispel any misunderstandings that my fellow travellers may have.

Don't worry, we can tell you're not trying to sell anything or you'd have told us the company name, and I'd have used my spam button!

Sigge, I did the same route the other direction a year ago. Hampi to Kochi would be a very very very long journey. I broke up the journey by stopping briefly in Mysore. It was overnight Kochi to Mysore, stayed one night then and another overnight from Mysore to Hampi. Mysore isn't amazing, it has a big but unspectacular palace, but the highlight is brilliant markets. They are great for photography even if you're a total novice, with piles of coloured dyes, flower-heads for perfume etc. They make loads of perfume and insence, and you if you don't mind buying a few (really cheap) you can learn how they make them.

But if you don't have time, you might have to do it all in one go. Ouch! I think you have to change somewhere.

Hi,
Thanks for the replies. Just to let you know, I took the overnight train from Hampi to Bangalore and then the same day the overnight bus from Bangalore to Kochi. It was a long journey, yes, and for those who have time it is better to break it apart with a stop somewhere.
