Hello all. This is the blog post where I will be sharing my travel experience with you all to my trip to Mumbai. After a long time I got some time off from my work schedule to plan a trip with my family to Mumbai. It was a much needed break as the month of March is a big stress for any accounts executive.
So I decided to take some days off from this work schedule and go for a short travel to Mumbai. Mumbai has always been one of my favourite destinations to visit, so I was happy that this time I will get time to visit all the places I always wished to visit.
The distance of Mumbai from Hyderabad is about 800 kms approximately. There are several ways by which one can travel to Mumbai. The Hyderabad to Mumbai route map is one which is connected by many means of transport.
There are good Volvo buses, a number of Superfast trains and also a highway that connects the two metropolitan cities. I preferred travelling to Mumbai by train. Train travel takes almost 12 hours if you are able to get a booking in one of the Superfast trains between the two cities.
I had booked the tickets for all of us in the Duronto express (12220). The train departs from the Secunderabad Junction (SC) at 11:05 PM in the night. We had reached the Secunderabad station after having our dinner at 10:30. The excitement for the trip started building up.
The platform was full of passengers of our train who were also going to travel to Mumbai. The good thing about Duronto express is that this train doesn’t haveany stoppage between. The train departs from Secunderabad and stops at Lokmanya Tilak terminus (LTT). No intermediate stoppage is in between the two stations.
The train departed at right time and we all went to sleep within no time. The train took almost 11:30 hours and by 11 Am in the morning the train reached Lokmanya Tilak Terminus in Mumbai. The train journey was quite comfortable as Duronto Express is a fully AC train.
After getting off at the station we took a taxi to reach our hotel which I had already booked in advance, Hotel Concord galaxy.
