Visit Ranganathitu Bird Sanctury for dense population of storks, egrets, spoon bills, ibis. Boat ride is also available in the river Cauvery where you can go close to Marsh Crocodiles. It was a thrilling experience. We spotted at least 7 or 8 crocodiles and they were basking on the rocks that came out in the middle of the river. This places is more close to Srirangapattan but very less trains stop here so better to hire a car from Mysuru and visit this place.

Even, there are plenty of city buses going to Srirangapatna from Mysore (Bus No:307, I think) which passes through Ranganatittu entrance and the bird sanctuary is about 800 meters from this spot. Whenever I go to Mysore as a tourist, I always visit this place. Very nice place. I buy a daily pass for Rs.50/- and cover almost all places like Chamundi Hills, Zoo, KRS, Ranganatittu, Srirangapatna and Mysore palace.

No food available from Kolhapur. Dinner is loaded from Miraj and only Biryani (Veg and Egg) is available. I took Veg Biryani and it costed Rs. 50/-. The taste was bad and I got stomach ache after eating it. It would be better to buy food from Kolhapur from restaurant nearby railway station.

When we completed our journey in 17412 recently, after coming home, we noticed that our bags, specially snacks pack were torn. My doubt is that there are rodents in the train but I cannot confirm the same. I am sure that our snack pack was fine before we started the journey.

There is only 1 stall available at PF1 where one can get snacks like chips, water bottle, etc. No biscuit packet was available. Tea was being sold at Rs. 15/-
The main platform is PF1 where trains come in both directions. PF2/3 have a very low height and one will need some effort to get into train if train arrives on PF2/3. Our train 11029 came on PF3 and we had hard time to get into the train.
The main city of Satara is some 6 KMS away from station and outside the

station, there are no facilities whatsoever are available. Rickshaws charge Rs. 150 (as of Dec 2016) to take you to the city. All amenities are available in Satara city.
