How to Reach Mangalore
Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers
Just 18 kms away from the heart of the city, the nearest airport to Mangalore is located at Kenjar Bajpe. It takes just 25 minutes to ride from the main city to the airport. Mangalore International Airport India is also the second international airport of the Karnataka state. With numerous financial hubs like Mumbai, Bangalore, Chennai, Hyderabad, Goa, and Delhi being connected via domestic airlines, while foreign cities like Dubai, Kuwait, Abu Dhabi, Muscat, Dammam, Doha, and Bahrain connected through the international segment on weekly and bi-weekly basis, make this place quite accessible. Maximum number of flights to Mangalore operate from Bangalore and Mumbai. From Bangalore to Mangalore, there are four to seven flights every day, while from Mumbai there are five to six flights scheduled for a day. However, the frequency of flights to Mangalore from Dubai has been increased to five times a week.
Connected to the Indian Railways network, regular trains run from Chennai, Thiruvananthapuram, Palghat, and other major South Indian cities via Kerala and Bangalore to Mangalore train stations. However, the Konkan Railways links Mangalore to Mumbai via Goa.
Located at Hampankatta in the heart of the city, Mangalore Central is a terminus, and is used only by the trains which terminate at Mangalore. And thus, most of the long distance trains interconnected with different cities stops here at Mangalore Junction. A few of major trains like Yesvantpur-Karwar Express and KSR Bengaluru City-Kannur Express makes it easier to cover Bangalore to Mangalore distance in a short duration. While to cover a distance from Mumbai to Mangalore, you have to take Mumbai LTT-Mangalore Junction.
Conveniently located about 395 kms to the South of Goa and 347 kms due west of Bangalore with National Highways connecting the city- Mangalore to both the sides. For the long distance, i.e. from Mysore, Goa, Mumbai and Bangalore to Mangalore bus services, the Karnataka State Road Transport Corporation (KSRTC) buses are highly recommended because of their low fare and comfort. However, there are numerous bus services from Mangalore to all the nearby towns in Karnataka and Kerala run by both the state government transport department (KSRTC) and numerous private companies, which operate at a little competitive rates. Although, the buses are operated by different private companies, the bus numbering scheme is unified, which is quite useful for travellers and bus drivers.

Trip to KarnatakaDriver was Good, First Homestay did not matched the Given Photos, but still it was Fine. No Wifi at the First Location. Hotel in Ooty was Very Good. Had all the Fun Thank You
Trip to KarnatakaDriver was good. Journey was good. Sightseeing was good. Biggest let down was the place to stay. It was just horrible. They didn't provide us water towels or anything. We had to ask for everything one by one. Breakfast was pathetic. Cold and not cooked well. The cabin given to us wasn't clean. There was no extra bed provided but a mattress to sleep on the floor in a wooden cabin.
Trip to KarnatakaTrip was planned properly. We had a pleasant stay in Coorg and enjoyed alot. We have covered all the sightseeing whatever mentioned in trip plan. Cab driver was friendly with place so no need to worry about route. And I would recommend Travel Agent for their hassel free service. Sunset at Raja Seat. Fresh air in Brahmagiri Hills

Trip to KarnatakaHi, I had booked a Coorg trip/tour through Lee Vacations. Starting with the very first communication from their representative (Varalaxmi) I was impressed. They provided me with an amazing quote for the trip having included my choice of the resort. They were very courteous and guided me well. Couldn’t have asked for a better deal..! The stay at Evolve Back (Orange County) Resort itself was a memorable one. Being disconnected from the world and closer to nature was something the highlight of the resort. The sightseeing tour of the Elephant Camp and the Tibetan settlement was great as well.
