Mumbai, the business capital of India, is one of the busiest cities of India. Just like Delhi, people of Mumbai are also on the hunt for a tranquil retreat to take a break from their busy life schedules. Kodaikanal is one of the best places to visit for the people of Mumbai, looking for calm, and peaceful trips. Located approximately 1,456 kilometers away from Mumbai, Kodaikanal can be reached easily via various means of transport. From airways to roadways, and from buses to trains, there are numerous means to travel from Mumbai to Kodaikanal.

 

 

Here’s the gist of how to reach Kodaikanal from Mumbai via different modes of transportation.

 

 

 

By Air: The city of Kodaikanal does not have its own airport but one can fly to the nearest airport to the city such as Trichy (150 kilometers), Madurai (120 kilometers), and Coimbatore (175 kilometers) airports. Traveling from Mumbai to Kodaikanal by flight is the best and the most effective means of transport. There are numerous direct flights operated by airlines like Jet Airways, SpiceJet, and Air India which fly to Kodaikanal on a daily basis. One may board a flight to Mumbai, and cover the distance of about 1106 Km in 7 hours 15 minutes. Travelers can also save on their budget by booking connecting flights which are cheaper as compared to direct flights.

 

 

 

By Train: The city of Kodaikanal is connected to most of the parts of the country via railways. The Kodai road railway station serves as a major hub for all rail connections to Kodaikanal. There is only one direct Mumbai to Kodaikanal train, the Nagarcoil Express , which operates three days a week, on Thursdays, Fridays, and Sundays. One can also find connecting trains from Mumbai to Kodaikanal to get more options available for traveling by train. Owing to the large Mumbai to Kodaikanal distance, these trains take approximately 30 hours to cover the distance of 1512 Km.  Even though train journeys are quite long, but they are more budget friendly as compared to flights.

 

 

 

By Road: Not many travelers prefer to travel from Mumbai to Kodaikanal by road due to the large distance, and a large amount of time required to cover that distance. But if one has ample time, and loves to go one long drives, he/she can definitely embark on this picturesque road journey of 1456 Km, which takes around 16 hours to reach the destination.

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      Myself and my wife had an excellent trip to Ooty and Kodaikanal. The service of inspire holidays is awesome. Never feel any difficulty from the starting of the trip to end of the trip. I have to mention about the driver, his name is Tamil. He is really good and have lot of patience. Never hesitated to answer whatever we’ve asked. He is really good. Travel triangle also very good in coordinating all the activities in the process. Please go with inspire holidays, I give ratings 5/5 Jyothi Mishra from travel triangle, she is awesome. I refer her as she has good knowledge on all the things she does.

      overall ok experience but could have been much better had the cab on day 2 been planned as per need and the situation in Ooty. - nice hotel ( darshan) with courteous staff. - polite and respectful driver from day 3 ( Ooty to Kodaikanal) onwards - support arranged in toy train tickets by driver - Boating at ooty Lake - breathtaking views at Kodaikanal from Coaker's walk, pillar rocks - amazing pictures clicked at Pine Forest Kodaikanal

    • Trip to Tamil Nadu

      I had a trip to KodaiKanal, Ooty & Coimbatore. Bhargavi from VFM holidays was very helpful. The trip was good but with few hiccups. I did not have idea about which vehicle suits for our needs. Ultimately ended up adjusting ourselves during the trip with the vehicle provided. KodaiKanal accommodation is very good and we enjoyed location and sightseeing etc. Food prepared by them is very good. In Ooty the accommodation is not up to the mark and there are power cuts in two nights during our stay. We did not expect these kind of issues in a tourist place. We thought that toy train tickets will be booked by travel triangle but ended up in missing it as no tickets available for us to get from railway counter also. Next time, I would need to verify all these before planning for a vacation.

      One of the biggest disappointments was Kodaikanal Hotel. In PDF shared with us it mentioned Spring Valley Residency but we were given Hotel Spring Valley which is not at all good. Two days we stayed in Kodaikanal we have to face wait outside of hotel to get another hotel confirmation from Customize trip.

      Kodaikanal was awesome. Ooty was okay. Hotels in ooty was okay. It's better to go by flight to Coimbatore. So that one day journey will be less.

      I am really impressed by the way trip was organized. Right from landing in Kodaikanal railway station to our return to Bangalore every bit was perfectly aligned with respect to cabs and itinerary. The drivers were polite and were open to do pit stops wherever we need. They were also knowledgable explaining the beauty of Kodaikanal. Overall I felt really relaxed during the trip with zero worries on how to visit places or where to have lunch/dinner. Thumbs up to Travel Triangle and Corporate Hosts Destination.

      We had a good time during our Coorg, Ooty, Kodaikanal tour. Tootle tour made a good arrangement. The hotels stay and food was good. the porcupine castle hotel in Coorg has good scenic beauty. Teanest nightingale in Ooty is a small property but the food was good. It was my wife's birthday when we were in Ooty. Caretaker helped to arrange the cake and we could celebrate the birthday. We really enjoyed it.

      Traveltriangle and Carlo Travels planned and executed our south India trip in a perfect manner and supported us well throughout the trip. Thanks to them for continuous assistance throughout the whole trip. Big round of applause for our driver Mahadev for his excellent driving skills, punctuality and humbleness. Sightseeing plan was flawless and hotels offered were also good. The Holiday Home Resort in Kodaikanal was very serene and peaceful, we spent a good time there. However, typical south Indian style food concerned us in ooty initially and we managed with good hotels suggested by Mahadev. Thanks to Carlos Travels and traveltriangle. We look forward to availing your services for our future trips...
