  2. Do we have buses to Nilakkal or Pamba from Tenkasi? Or do we have to get down @ punalur to get another bus to pamba. I’m planning to go Sabarimala this month via Chennai – Tenkasi – nilakkal. Please provide the information that would be great.

    If we don’t have direct buses from Tenkasi. Can we get some taxi for hire?


  3. Sir, please send me the bus timing details from coimbatore or tirupur to mysore. Please give the night service buses also thank you.

    • Tenkasi is listed as “Thenkasi” in tnstc website. Sencottah-Coimbatore bus is not listed for booking in Thenkasi-Coimbatore route. You can search for Shencottah-Coimbatore bus and while reserving, select “Shencottah” in Pickup point.

      All are KSRTC bus timings. only one SETC bus available in a day.

    • There are two SETC buses which in my opinion will take you closest to Pamba.

      1. 781UD @ 15:30 from CHENNAI CMBT to KOTTARAKARA.

      In this bus you can get down at PUNALUR and take the KSRTC bus to Pathanamthitta bus stand. From there you will get frequent buses to Pamba.


      In this bus you can get down at Pathanamthitta bus stand and then take the bus to Pamba.

      In case you have arranged to reach Thenkasi or Sengottai, then take a KSRTC bus to Punalur and then to Pathanamthitta.

      Last week a fellow passenger told me that the first KSRTC bus from Punalur to Pathanamthitta is at 3:30 AM, then next bus is from private bus stand at 4:45 AM then next at 7 AM from KSRTC. Rest of the day, there would be more frequent buses.

  6. There is no SETC buses operates from Madurai to Pamba, Dindigul to Pamba, Tambaram to Pamba for all the timings. Can you please operate these routes at least sabarimalai seasons.

    It will very helpful for pilgrimages.

    • I don’t know of any direct buses but here are the options you can choose.

      From Madurai there is a direct KSRTC deluxe bus to Tiruvalla, from where you can get bus to Pamba or get down at Kumlly from where there are direct KSRTC buses to Pamba.

      As per this link, there are special buses from Chennai to Pamba.

    • I have been on KSRTC buses after 4 AM from Tenkasi to Punalur. When talking to the fellow passengers in the past, they have told me that there are KSRTC buses all night but not frequently.

      If you can reach Punalur from Tenkasi, there are a lot of connecting buses between Punalur and Kollam but again if its late night, the frequency would be less.

  9. how long it will take to reach pathanamthitta from tenkasi…
    direct bus or tenkasi to punalur and then punalur to pathanamthitta.. approximately how long it will take??
    bus frequency from tenkasi to pathanamthitta or tenkasi to punalur and then from punalur to pathanamthitta … in morning 6am to 9 am…

    I must be there at pathanamthitta before 12 noon.

    • It will take approximately 4 hours from Tenkasi to Pathanamthitta, but it depends on the traffic. There are some direct buses from Ten to Pta but it is best to not wait for them and take the available bus for Punalur. From Punalur if there is not direct KSRTC bus to Pta then you can come out of the bus stand and walk to the stop where private buses are available to Pathanamthitta.

  10. Dear sir , tell me the exact morning bus time for tenkasi to rajapalayam via puliangudi between from 12 am to 3.30 am
