INTRODUCTION TO KONKAN RAILWAYS
A breathtaking journey, traversing the beautiful konkan Coast with the Konkan Railway, is a 1000 km . long adventure on rails . Konkan Railways offers one of the most luxurious train journeys in India. Konkan Railways offers a mesmerising route from Mumbai to Thiruvananthapuram. The gorgeous destinations of Goa, Maharashtra, Karnataka and Kerala on the route of Konkan Railways make the trip unforgettable. Konkan Railways caters to the commuting solutions of the business and leisure travellers with the ports of west India as their destinations. A marvel of civil engineering, the Konkan Coast project, the picturesque west coast of India - taking them through the stated of Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala.

Konkan Railways offers breathtakingly beautiful sights to the commuters, unexplored destinations with natural charm and promises of improved economy. The travel time from Mumbai to Goa has been cut down drastically by the Konkan Railways. Throughout the journey the shimmering spots, picturesque scenery and Konkan beaches keep you going on happily.

PLACES TO VISIT WITH KONKAN RAILWAYS
The ecology and scenic beauty of the region traversed by the Konkan Railways will make the journey along this route a pleasant and enjoyable experience for the passengers. The shortened time span and the easy accessibility to inland scenic spots or to beach fronts along the picturesque coastline should offer opportunities for travel not contemplated earlier and contribute to a booming tourist trade.

Every state in Konkan offers tremendous variety. history, adventure, wildlife and sun-kissed beaches and many of these spots are untouched and pristine. Until now, they were inaccessible except to hardy explorers, willing to suffer the discomfort of exhausting bus journey.

Maharashtra is a state that can be immensely satisfying to those looking for history or adventure. For a traveler today, the Raigad Fort combines both. The fort, built by Chattrapati Shivaji Maharaj in 1674, witnessed his glittering coronation in 1674, and it was from there that he set out for his expedition of the south, and in 1680, breathed his last. In trying to reach it, the tourist can now opt for a steep three- or four-hour climb, or for the heart-stopping Raigad ropeway, 35 km away from Veer.The Raigad district has also one of the loveliest beaches in India.

If one thinks of beaches, the first name that comes to mind is Goa. When a traveler on the Konkan Railways alights at Madagaon, he finds himself 6 km away from Colva, the state's commercial hub. Colva, an 18-km stretch of silvery sand, has the secluded wilds of Palolem and Betul beaches at the far end. It was here that the second-century statue of Buddha was found. While beaches like Calangute, Vagator, and Dona Paola are the first areas that the tourists visit, Goa has far more to offer to the visitor. Panaji, the capital, only a small fishing village four centuries ago, is one of the most beautiful in the country, rising on the wooden terraces of the Alinto hill.

On the lower coast of the south India is Karnataka, formerly known as Mysore state. It got its name from Karu Nadu, meaning 'lofty land'. so called because most of Karnataka is situated on the western edge of the Deccan plateau. The beautiful state with backwaters, coconut trees, and nature therapy, God's own country, Kerala is to the extreme south.
