How to Reach Maharashtra

How to get there by Air

If you are visiting India from overseas, there is a very good chance that Maharashtra will be your first introduction to this beautiful ancient land, since a majority of the international flights to India land in Mumbai, the state capital. The International Airport is at Sahar, 30 kms from the city centre of Nariman Point and 4km from the domestic terminus at Santa Cruz.

Within the state, many of the larger cities like Aurangabad, Nasik, Nagpur and Pune have airports facilitated by the national domestic airlines and private commercial companies.

How to get there by Rail

Mumbai is the headquarters for both Western & Central Railways sectors of the behemoth Indian Railways. An enormous network of regular train services connects all cities and villages of Maharashtra with the rest of India, so you can train into the state from just about anywhere else in the country.

How to get there by Road

Maharashtra has well maintained state and national highways that link it to the different towns and cities of the state as well as of India. Good motorable roads with service stations and motels connect Mumbai, Pune, Nasik, Kohlapur and Aurangabad to the neighbouring states of Gujarat, Goa, Karnataka, Madhya Pradesh and Andhra Pradesh. Traffic is fairly heavy but disciplined. Interstate roadways buses and private operators run every kind of bus from luxury coaches to ramshackle rattletraps. Car rental companies will provide chauffeur driven/ self driven vehicles; traffic drives on the right hand side and while ideally you should have an international driving license, your local license will do for stays under six months.
