The itinerary of the Deccan Odyssey has been recently updated to include a halt in Vasco. The announcement came from the Maharashtra Tourism Development Corporation (MTDC), operators of this Indian luxury train. The itinerary of the train is supposedly updated to add to the overall appeal of the Deccan Odyssey rail journey. The recent update will also mean that the wildlife tour at Chandrapur is no longer included in the itinerary.
Earlier, Deccan Odyssey had a single day halt which entailed visit to the World Heritage Sites in Old Goa, famous for its Portuguese Churches and Cathedral. Now, the travelers will also get to visit the internationally acclaimed "Sahakari Spice Farm", one of the largest organic spice farm in India and the “Menezes Braganza House” one of the last standing structure which dates back to pre-Portuguese era. To add to the icing to the cake, it’s the lady of the house Mrs. Braganza, an octogenarian who takes the visitors to the tour of the house.
The other destinations included in the 8 days and 7 nights itinerary of the Deccan Odyssey include Mumbai, Sindhudurg, Kolhapur, Aurangabad, Ajanta Caves, Ellora Caves, Nashik and back to Mumbai. Visit the website of the Deccan Odyssey for the details of tariff, schedules, itinerary and booking policies of this train journey.
