How To Reach Karnataka

Planning A Trip To Karnataka? Here are some guidelines on how to reach Karnataka

Karu nadu, the land of black soil is one of the fittest portrayals that one could give for the state of Karnataka, known for the abundance of greenery and foliage. Karnataka has blossomed out of a Palaeolithic past and medieval empires whose relics still speak volumes about the prosperity of the region, into the fifth largest state economy in India and one of the biggest and most favourite tourist hubs of the country. Karnataka has a 320 km long coastline along the Arabian Sea in the west and shares its remaining borders with the states of Andhra Pradesh, Telangana, Maharashtra, Goa, Kerala and Tamil Nadu. In essence, access to Karnataka by air, road or by rail will not be a problem. The best way to reach Karnataka would be by train, though you can fly if you want to get there faster.
