Hyderabad to Agra

Has anyone made the trip from Hyderabad to the Taj Mahal? What is the best way to travel there?

Hi, Hyderabad is not close to the Taj Mahal...it's in Andhra Pradesh (south india) and Agra is about 3 hours south of Delhi. The best way to get there is via a domestic airline to Delhi or even to Jaipur (Air Sahara flies direct to both), and then take the train to Agra. Jaipur is as close as Delhi to Agra. I believe a train from Hyd to Agra would at the very least be an overnight train and most likely a good bit longer than that.

You can check Air Sahara, Jet Airways, Indian Airlines, and Air Deccan (the original cheapo airline, but don't book them if you have a tight schedule or hate delays). I'm not sure if SpiceJet or Kingfisher Air are flying HYD to Delhi yet.

Just to clarify on the train journey, its much longer than overnight :) Takes a complete day by the SuperFast train(AP Express), and even longer in the regular express train(Dakshin Express-30hrs). The Rajdhani from Hyderabad to Delhi too, should touch Agra. You can get more info on www.indianrail.gov.in

But if you're on a short visit, you'd be better off flying...not too much costlier on the low cost carriers, than an A/C train ticket

HTH,
