How to go to Kanyakumari by train from Delhi?

The fastest train from Delhi to Kanyakumari is Thirukkural Express which still takes 50 hours (if you are lucky) - and can stretch to 60 hours if the train is delayed ! The other option is Himsagar Express. 

You can see our page of all trains from Delhi to Kanyakumari too. 

I am envious as there is so much to learn, see and experience in those 3 days on a train. In the 1980s, Doordarshan ran a television series featuring Om Puri and directed by Shyam Benegal, called Yatra. This showed his journey from Kanyakumari to Kashmir on board the Himsagar Express (reverse of your journey).
