Bus travel to Sabarimalai
Sabarimalai Ayyappa devotees visiting Vellimalai for Madala Poojai have increased. Due to this Kerala state government has taken action to increase the bus from important railway junction in Kerala to Pampai. Train services to Pampai has also increased due to many people prefer this.
So this time bus service will be good than previous year. Make sure that you reach main city of Kerala. As there are many bus available, I am not able to give you the schedule. I got special train schedules to Sabarimalai which are as below.
