Travel to Bhuj
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Bhuj having an airport of its own is a big bonus. However, it doesn’t invite a lot of air traffic from various parts of the country. In fact, the only Air India flights that land on the runways of Bhuj Airport depart from the Chhatrapati Shivaji Maharaj International Airport in Mumbai, meaning flights from anywhere else in the world will involve a stop in Mumbai at some point of the journey. The silver lining in all of this is that the flights from Mumbai to Bhuj only take a couple of hours to complete and operate consistently. Kandla Airport, which is 53 km from Bhuj, doesn’t expand your options too much, as it only takes flights from Mumbai and Ahmedabad. Planning your flight through that airport and proceeding to make the 1-hour trip to Bhuj itself may end up being a convenient option for some.
The railway station in Bhuj improves the town’s connectivity with the rest of India quite significantly. Cities from within the state of Gujarat itself, as well as from neighboring Maharashtra and Rajasthan have trains that stop at Bhuj. Trains from Mumbai, Bareilly, Ahmedabad, Vadodara, Jaipur, Delhi, Kolkata, Surat and numerous other cities in the country go a long way in addressing the issue of how to reach Bhuj. Conveniently, a few of these trains also operate on a daily basis, expanding your list of potential travel options.
All roads may not lead to Bhuj, but quite a few of them do. Many of Gujarat’s major cities, such as the capital city of Gandhinagar (around 350 km away), Ahmedabad (about 330 km away) and Vadodara (about 440 km away) all have buses carrying passengers back and forth quite regularly. A fairly large network of national and state highways also happens to be linked to Bhuj, leading all the way into Uttar Pradesh and Maharashtra as well. The gorgeous desert landscape that surrounds you on your way Bhuj also makes it quite an enticing road trip.
