The Deccan Odyssey

Following the success of Rajasthan's luxury Palace on Wheels train, India introduced a Maharashtra counterpart, the Deccan Odyssey. Traveling first-class on Indian trains in the heyday of the British Raj was a comfortable, lavish experience, with chefs and attendants taking care of the passengers' every need, in royal surroundings, as the train chugged through breathtaking countryside. The feeling is replicated aboard this train. Over seven nights and eight days you travel down the Maharashtra coast to Goa, then swing upward to Pune, and to Ajanta, Ellora, and the vineyards of Nashik before returning to Mumbai. In high season (October to March) such excursions will set you back $425 per night in triple-sharing accommodation, $500 in double-sharing accommodation, or $650 for a single occupancy rail cabin. The train has several restaurants, lounges, and even a gym. For more information, visit www.deccanodyssey.com.
