Deccan Odyssey

The Deccan Odyssey is to the South of India what the Palace on Wheels is to the Golden Triangle (Delhi, Agra, Rajasthan) region of North India — luxury train travel par excellence. It has won the award for the best luxury train in Asia at the “World Travel Awards” a total of 7 times in the last 15 years.

True to its name, this uber luxury train takes you on an unforgettable odyssey of discovery across the larger Deccan plateau region and the plains of North.

Modelled after the iconic Palace on Wheel Luxury Train the Deccan Odyssey has been operating on 6 different pan-Indian routes since 2004. The Indian Railway joined forces with the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation to help you rediscover the lost aura of royal train caravans.

A journey aboard the Deccan Odyssey is a voyage into the heart and soul of India, across magnificent cities, sprawling plains, fertile valleys, sandy beaches, towering forts, stupendous cultural landmarks and opulent palaces.
