Rural Train Ride


Chugging on Train no 222 - you will have the opportunity to go on the train safari in Deogarh.
Most of us know of it, but haven’t experienced it. It’s an amazing one and a half hours spent on a meter gauge train which is the lifeline of locals.This train ride is a dramatic way to come in contact with the locals. Dadul Nath, the man who has been selling “salads” to the locals for the past 20 years.The train was originally started by the British to unite the regions of Mewar and Marwar, who didn’t enjoy the friendliest of terms at that time. The journey starts from Kamblighat (10 minute drive from Deogarh Mahal) where the station master single handedly mans everything. 

The ride ends at Phulad and you drive back to Deogarh which takes about 30 minutes. This is also the highest track on the Western Railways, one can hardly believe how Rajasthan at such a height. The train doesn't have a name. It just has a number – 222. So you chug on train no 222 through tunnels and bridges, past quaint railway stations where the famous book and movie “The Man Who Would Be King” of Rudyard Kipling unfolds. The landscape is rugged, yet stunning, cinematic and has a “in the middle of nowhere” feeling to it.
The train makes two special stops.

Dadul Nath tells me that the driver does it to double check the brakes. But you have ample time in hand to feed, first the monkeys and later the India Tree Pie. Simply awesome and a must do. Ideal for both FITs and Groups.
