It’s official. The Dasara special tour package on the Golden Chariot, Karnataka’s first and only luxury train, to Mysuru is happening this year as well.
This time, only two trips of the two-night package have been planned. The 2017 package costs Rs. 25,000 for Indians and Rs. 40,000 for international travellers. The package cost Rs. 30,000 for Indians last year.
The Karnataka State Tourism Development Corporation (KSTDC), which operates the train in collaboration with Indian Railways, announced the package to give tourists an opportunity to experience the State’s Festival (Nada Habba) amidst royalty
and opulence.
The Golden Chariot will help tourists witness the rich heritage of Karnataka and feel like royalty with accommodation, food and service inspired by dynasties that once ruled the State.
Kumar Pushkar, Managing Director, KSTDC, told The Hindu that Minister for IT and BT and Tourism Priyank Kharge had complimented the corportation on announcing the package.
Trip dates
The first trip is between September 23 and 25 and the second from September 29 to October 1, which coincides with Vijayadashami, the Dasara finale.
The train will depart from Yeshwantpur railway station in the night on the first day of the journey to Mysuru and return to Bengaluru early in the morning on the third day.
The Golden Chariot has 44 luxury cabins that can accommodate 88 people. The package, a KSTDC note said, includes accommodation, meals, sightseeing and Mysuru palace events. For details and bookings, visit www.kstdc.co / www.goldenchariot.org
Royal walk
Guests will also be taken on a royal walk to introduce them to the heritage value of Mysuru. They will be offered the gold card pass to witness the Dasara cultural programmes in front of the illuminated Mysuru palace.
