Nothing can beat the thrill of riding on an Indian train, slowly chugging away through tunnels, making us feel like a kid again. Those morning teas and toasted breads, nostalgia is bound to hit you!

How about you level up those train journeys? There are so many scenic routes in India, that it will put the European rail to shame. No other country has so many diverse landscapes to enthrall the ever excited Indian traveller. These are some of the most beautiful Indian rail journeys that you need to take this January:

  • Mumbai – Goa: The Mandovi Express which travels between the beautiful gorges of Sahyadari and fringes of Arabian Sea is one of the most enthralling train rides in India. The route is full of scenic landscapes, waterfalls, small rivers and stunning meadows. So much so, that you will not even feel like sleeping on this train journey, just to gaze at the landscapes! Make sure to capture these stunning sights on your camera. This train ride requires a full day of travel though.

  • Hubli – Madgaon: This has to be one of the prettiest routes in India that you must see. Often called the Vasco Da Gama route, this route has the most enchanting views of the magnificent Dudhsagar falls. Known to be one of the most gigantic and 300 metre water fall. Once the train reaches the waterfall, you will be amazed at the stunning force and magnificent view of this fall. The entire train journey will be worth this view!

  • Kalka – Shimla: One of the most famed routes in India, the Kalka to Shimla toy train is popular for its picturesque valleys. The joy of travelling in a toy train, which is now a World Heritage Site by UNESCO; is just something else. This journey starts from Kalka and travels 96 km upslope through 102 tunnels! You will cross 82 bridges, deep valleys, steep bends and stunning views of hills. This enchanting, slow train ride is a journey you will cherish forever!

  • Tamil Nadu – Rameshwaram: This is the only train journey in India which intersects an ocean! The train travel from Mandapam, Tamil Nadu to Rameshwaram is super adventurous. This train passes over the second longest bridge of India, the Palk Strait. The route connects mainland India to the island called Pamban Island. Passing through the long bridge on an ocean is a sight to behold!

  • New Jalpaiguri – Darjeeling: A slow, sluggish journey through the many bends in the hills takes you through Siliguri Town, Siliguri Junction, Sukna, Rangtong and till the end to the longest loop, Batasia Loop. This 78 km long journey takes 8 hours to complete its circle. This is now a UNESCO World Heritage Site as well. You will also cross Ghum, which is the highest narrow gauge railway station in India!
