Deccan Odyssey to begin its magical journey once again

Company Release, September 22

NEW DELHI

The Deccan Odyssey, Maharashtra's only super luxury train, is all set to repeat the phenomenal success of 2004. And this time, the well-appointed interiors are even more lavish that promise a more enthralling experience. Come October, the Deccan Odyssey will begin its magical 7-day journey through the heart of the state.

This year too, the Deccan Odyssey will take the tourists on an unforgettable week-long sojourn through the erstwhile kingdom of the Marathas, namely Mumbai, Ganapatiphule, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Tarkali, Sawantwadi, Goa, Pune, Aurangabad, Ellora, Ajanta and Nasik.

Speaking on the occasion, Mr. Prithiviraj Patil, General Manager, MTDC, said, "The Deccan Odyssey has been benchmarked along with the best luxury trains in the world, like the Blue Train of South Africa, The Orient Express of Europe and the Eastern and Oriental of South East Asia. The first attempt was successful and we were quite happy with the kind of response we got last year. It was nice to see the foreign tourist overwhelmed by our royal treatment."

The Deccan Odyssey spells luxury all the way. Everything in the train reflects the ways of Indian royalty. Each coach is named after some of the best places and forts of Maharashtra. With plush interiors, delicious cuisine and great sight-seeing, this journey sure etches some golden memories in the traveler's mind.

This year the fully air-conditioned train boasts of all the modern trappings and state-of-the-art conference facilities besides its already existing exquisite facilities.

So, come aboard and discover the marvels of Maharashtra in a truly royal way. The train runs only between October and April each year.
