Reaching from Ratnagiri station to Ganpatipule

Hi,

We will be visiting Ganpatipule this weekend. We have taken train till Ratnagiri Station and will be reaching around 14:25.

Need help on the following:

1) Are the trains delayed (We've taken Mandovi Express)

2) How much time does it take to reach Ganpatipule from the station and the distance

3) What are the means of transportation from Station to Ganpatipule

Thanks

it takes 30-45 mins travel if you have your own vehicle. I think you can get a bus.

You can get auto rickshaw also and it could cost around 400 plus

Take a call after getting down at the Ratnagiri station.

Think of catching public transport bus, only if you're travelling very light and no kids/senior citizens...

Auto rickshaw can be hired and could take something like Sanjivji mentioned. You can explore hiring a jeep/sumo too. Enquire at the station.

Have you booked your stay at Ganapatipule? Otherwise if the train gets late beyond evening, I'd recommend staying at Ratnagiri...

Hi

At Ganpatipule.. the Ganesh Temple and the beaches are the major attraction. You can take a day trip to Ratnagiri and explore the town.

Ganpatipule Temple, beach and Prachin Konkan Museum are the main attractions at Ganpatipule.

Ganapatipule is one of the most spectacular beaches along the Konkan Coast.

Ratnagiri is about 25 km away from Ganapatipule. The three main attractions here are The Thibaw Palace, the Lokmanya Tilak Smarak and the Patit Pawan Mandir.

Jaigad Fort at the entrance of the Sangameshwar river is 35 km away from Ganapatipule, is Jaigad Fort. This 17th century fort offers a commanding view of the sea and an almost unique view of Konkan village life.
