|How to reach by rail|
If you plan to come by rail, your drop off point would be Udupi and/or Mangalore Railway Station. These railway stations lie on the Konkan route connecting the North and the South along the West coast. Delhi and Mumbai (to the North) & Ernakulam (to the South) are linked to the Udupi station. The Mangalore station is directly connected with Chennai, Delhi, Trivandrum & Mumbai. Those travelling from Calcutta will have to reach Chennai and then take a connecting train to Mangalore. There is also a train operating from Jammu to Mangalore once a week.
