    1. Dear Krishna, There is no railway connection to Sringeri. Udupi and Shivamogga are nearest railway stations. Sringeri can be reached from Bangalore . There are KSRTC buses available. It can be reached from Mangalore and Udupi / Manipal also. There are many private buses to Sringeri from Mangalore and Udupi.

      Please let us know if you need any other information or any help in organising the tour for your parents.
