So far Bundelkhand Express is travelling from Gwalior to Varanasi. From 01/Nov./2009, it will go via Khajuraho railway station. It timing will be as follows:
- Khajuraho to Varanasi : Bundelkhand Express Train (1107) coming from Gwalior and going towards Varanasi, will reach Khajuraho railway station at 23:40 Hrs (Day-1) and will reach Varanasi at 10:50 Hrs (Day-2) .
- Varanasi to Khajuraho : Bundelkhand Express Train (1108) coming from Varanasi to Gwalior will start from Varanasi at 17:10 hrs (Day-1) and reach Khajuraho railway station at 05:10 Hrs (Day-2).
As we know Khajuraho is a UNESCO World Heritage Site and Varanasi/Benaras/Kashi is another important tourist destination to visit. Distance between Khajuraho & Varanasi by road is 400 kms. If we travel by road, it will take atleast 8 hrs to reach. So far most of the tourists use to travel by flight as it takes just 40 minutes to reach Varanasi from Khajuraho, but during monsoon and bad weather, flights often gets delayed/cancelled at last moment which creates problem to tourists as they have check-out the hotel and in peak seasons, room availability often poses problem. So far, on flight cancellation, tourists have left with two options either to stay in hotel or to go with car. But now, one more option is available to tourists i.e. of travelling by train which is much better than travelling by car.
