5 Hour Train Trip to Ranthambore
Board the train to Sawai Madhopur. Originally called the Frontier Mail, this historic passage is among India's oldest train routes. This was definitely the most challenging portion of the trip. Getting to the train through all of the people who weren't even riding on the train, sleeping in the middle of the walkway, the smell and filth was a little overwhelming. The train is old, and the bathroom is almost indescribable, emptying directly on to the tracks. Wouldn't suggest trying this without a tour guide.
