Kanyakumari, Tamil Nadu, India

The end of the line. After riding through some of the most beautiful scenery we've seen in India, we arrived at the southern end of the Indian sub-continent. Kanyakumari. The last stop on the train. Having traveled the from the Nepal/India border in the north all the way down to the southern tip there was a sense of accomplishment. While there isn't all that much to do in town, the vibe is that of a nice seaside town with fishermen found in any shady area during the high heat of the day. A unique feature of Kanyakumari's geography is that you can watch the sun rise and set over the ocean. Normally I find sunset is the more spectacular, but not this time.
