As part of my trip to India next year we want to experience a longish train journey, to break up the number of internal flights we are going to take. One of those journeys could be from Bangalore to New Delhi.
Could anyone advise me on how much time this is likely to take, the cost involved for sleepers, and any good websites that I can refer to for information/guidance.
www.irctc.co.in - is the website to check availability and book tickets online.
The Rajdhani would be ideal, serves you meals and fully air-conditioned, takes around 27 hours from Bangalore to Delhi. The flight wont cost much to Delhi in comparison with Rajdhani, if you have the time, its worth trying the train, if your strapped for time, just fly

If you have the time, you might want to drop by Goa for a few days and then proceed to Delhi, Goa is an experience in India, there is no other place like Goa(culture and festive mood) in India
