How to Reach Mysore

How to Reach Mysore by Air

Mysore does not have an airport. The nearest airport at Bangalore (130 km) is quite well connected to the rest of the country and to some places abroad. The distance is very easily covered; there’s a host of rail and road options to choose from.

How to Reach Mysore by Rail

More than four trains ply between Bangalore and Mysore everyday. Mysore is pretty well connected to the rest of the local area and it also has weekly connections to New Delhi, Chennai and Mumbai.

How to Reach Mysore by Bus

Mysore is quite close to the southern border of Karnataka. Road distances are really more manageable from tourist places in northern Tamil Nadu and Kerala than to a place in even central Karnataka. There are buses plying all around, deluxe, super deluxe, express and super fast. It is also possible to hire chauffeur driven cars, which would make the longer journeys a little less never-ending and tedious.

Getting Around Mysore

You can hire a cab for the day to do the sights. It’s probably the most convenient and price-wise option. Taxis are not metered and a quite a bit of haggling is required for settling a price. Auto-rickshaws work out okay for short distances and cycle-rickshaws are good for slightly over ''walking distance’. Buses also take you around the city and to tourist attractions around Mysore. If you are feeling adventurous, try the horse driven ‘tongas’.
