Each bus ticket will be between INR 800- 1500, so totally the trip will cost around INR 4500. Popular carriers include Eagle Travels and Patel Travels.

The entire journey will take you approximately 55 hours road time, but you should also consider transferring to different buses and waiting time when calculating the total travel time. The roads are generally smooth but there are a few roads which go through hills so be sure to take some medicine if you get motion sickness.

As there are several bus carriers from city to city there are regular departures, albeit from different bus stops across the cities. Most buses are night buses although there are a few early morning departures. Each operator has different cancellation policies, but one would have to inform them at least 24 hours in advance of the cancellation to be considered for a refund.

Most private bus companies have the same amenities on their buses. They are air-conditioned with partially reclining seats and ply through the night. There are no bathrooms on board but the bus will stop every few hours. Most buses will play an Indian film on overhead televisions in the evening.

Bus travel can be challenging because of the amount of times you’d have to change buses.

Travellers are also served meals if they are in the second AC class.

First class AC, which has two to four berths and air-conditioning is also an option. It has cleaner bathrooms, shower facilities and an attendant. However, the price of a ticket for this class is similar to a flight ticket at INR 4000 - 5000.

If you’re on a budget, opt for third class AC, which has more berths in each compartment, less privacy and does not include meals.

Passenger reviews out of total 19 passengers who traveled with us on this route.

At 12Go our operators offer three types of service:

Cheap, Fast, Good - but you can usually pick only two of them!
Cheap & Fast won’t be Good. (e.g. buses from/to Khao San Road, local buses or 3rd class trains)
Cheap & Good won’t be Fast. (e.g. VIP trains in Thailand)
Fast & Good won’t be Cheap. (e.g. private limousine services, or VIP24 buses vs Express buses)

Make your choice! Please remember that while we are closely monitoring the services, we are still an agency marketplace. That means we focus on ticketing services and route availability & coverage rather than on the factual seat reclining angle you will get on the bus today.
