LUXURY TRIAN DECCAN ODYSSEY
It is interesting that while this luxurious train is officially known as Deccan Odyssey, the often-used acronym for the train is Palace on Wheels of Maharashtra. Deccan Odyssey is relatively new addition to the list of luxury trains operating in India. It is ambitious and costliest project of Maharashtra state government. It has rightly added to the glorious tales of the mighty Maharathas. If Rajasthan is proud of Palace on Wheels, then Maharashtra has Deccan Odyssey to boast of. Deccan Odyssey is more than a mere train journey.
The weeklong trip of Deccan Odyssey takes you to the heritage sites of Ajanta and Ellora, the handicraft village of Shilpa Gram, the Sula Winery at Nashik, besides the bustling cities of Mumbai and Pune, and more. It is a magical experience of beating the limitations of time, experiencing timelessness and getting engrossed in sheer luxury. The destinations covered include Mumbai, Ganpatipule, Ratnagiri, Sindhudurg, Goa, Pune, Aurangabad, Ajanta and Ellora.
