Gorakhpur tourist quota

Hello all,

I'll be travelling from pokhara to varanasi. From sunauli border, i will take bus to gorakhpur. Trains are kinda booked for my times but is there tourist quota in gorakhpur junction? I heard it is only available in some stations. Thank you.

Between Gorakhpur and Varanasi, there are a few trains with Foreign Tourist Quota. But there is no availability on FTQ in the next few days on trains with FTQ.The journey is not that long.

If forced to, one can even manage without reservation on a general ticket. It will be very crowded - but it is journey of a few hours.

When do you intend to travel? I can look up if there is FTQ available around the dates.

Go for general sleeper - use an agent. It is a day train and at hours where you don't really need to sleep.
