We are organising a charity event for independent travelers. The idea is to ride round the perimeter of the Indian rail network (near as damn it) starting at Mumbai and touching Dwarka, Udhapmpur, Ledo and Kannyakumari at the extreme west, north, east and southern points of the network. We'll be going flat out in an effort to nail it in 2 weeks and a few hours. We've got 20 on the train so far and we're going in February 2011, so you've no excuses.
If you ever wanted to do something like this, but wanted some mates to do it with, this is your chance. We've got a bunch of people with immense India and Indian Railway experience in the gang already, but we are all independent travelers, so you sign up at your own risk We've got plenty of experts involved who can show you how to buy your ticket direct from IR, the whole trip (not including the costs of getting to Mumbai of course) will cost you between ?150 and ?300 depending on how comfy you want to do it.
As I've said twice already, this is a charitable venture, there are no agents or tour operators involved, so please view my posting sympathetically.
We will be building up a huge blog here (Admin:NO ADDS!!!), you can follow the development of the project and get more information and meet other people involved with the trip on the blog.
Please message me or respond to this thread if you'd like more info. And apologies to the admins if I've broken all the rules, alas you dont have an evil banana smilie, but I like this one
