Usually the trips we do gets finalized at the last moment - making all the bookings a day or two before the trip. But, For this trip we just changed the usual way. This was a well-planned one. We had booked train tickets and stay almost a month in advance.

We boarded the train from Bangalore City station. We had our reservation in Rani Chennamma Express till Londa Junction. We reached Londa Junction at around 8:30 AM. We had breakfast at the station - Vada Pav and Idli Vada - were only things available there. Then, we bought General tickets and boarded Chennai Vasco Express at around 9:00 AM. We reached Castle Rock at around 10:00 AM.

We started our expedition From Castle Rock at around 10:30 AM. Weather was awesome - drizzling with cool breeze. View was awesome all the way - full of Jungles, Mountains, small and big waterfalls. The rail trek was an ultimate experience amidst the beautiful Western Ghats.

The rail trek is full of stones from the start till the end, So my suggestion would be to wear a good trekking shoe if you are going for this trek. We reached Dudhsagar Waterfalls at around 4:00 PM. It's about 14 KM from Castle Rock to Dudhsagar, but you will never feel tired if the weather is good and It was good for us. After reaching to the waterfall you have to trek around a kilometre to reach the view-point.

We continued our trek even after the view-point instead of returning to Dudhsagar. We trekked till the Sonaulim Station and then boarded another train and reached Kulem. That's another interesting story how we boarded the train in Sonaulim. We had booking in Dudhsagar Spa Resort which is around 6 KM from Kulem. Then, we booked a cab from Kulem Station and reached there.

It's a nice place to stay. We stayed in tents. Tents were good & well maintained. Food was good, they had a dancing floor as well along with the bar/restaurant. Overall our stay was good at the resort. They had Spa and other activities as well but, with extra charges. We didn't had much time to check them out.

Next Day, we went to Tambdi Surla Mahadev Temple, which is around 20 KMs from the Dudhsagar Spa Resort. We returned Bangalore in the same train which we boarded from Londa Junction at 8:00 PM.

We all enjoyed the trip and the rail trek was an awesome experience.
