Do you know what about Dasara Golden Chariot Train? KAS/KPSC 2016 Challengers

Dasara special package train tour on the Golden Chariot

  • The Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC) will launch the Dasara special package train tour on the Golden Chariot from October 1, 2016.
  • This will be the first ever short domestic trip of the luxury train. The idea is to make travel on the Golden Chariot affordable to all and ensure that train runs full house
  • Tickets for the Dasara special and domestic travel would be sold through various tourism portals soon.
  • The Dasara special will be a one-day, two-nights trip, where tourists will travel from Bengaluru to Mysuru, have breakfast onboard and then see the jamboo savari with gold pass.
  • The guests will also enjoy the cultural programmes organised as part of the festival.
  • There will be 86 berths, along with exclusive berths for the disabled.
  • Apart from enjoying the festival like a royal guest, passengers can also utilise the facilities of a five-star hotel on the Golden Chariot such as the five course meal, bar and spa.goldenchariottrain1-2

Domestic circuits

  • After the Dasara special tour, the KSTDC will launch weekend domestic travels. Initially, two circuits are being launched, the Mysuru-Hampi circuit and the Hampi-Badami-Patadkal circuit.
  • These circuits will be only during weekends, so that the train does not stand idle
  • For the Mysuru-Hampi trip, the train will leave Bengaluru to Mysuru on Friday night. On Saturday, after visiting Mysuru for half-a-day, tourists will go to Kabini Jungle Lodges property for safari and will head for Hampi the same night.
  • Ten trips of Pride of South (from Bengaluru to Goa) and Southern Splendour (covering Bengaluru, Chennai and Puducherry) are already pre-fixed and will not be altered. The two new domestic circuits will run on the remaining 16 weeks
  • Based on their success, more trips will be introduced in Karnataka to run the train throught the year
