Watch a Two-Minute Video Tour of the Longest Train Ride in India


Passengers who ride the duration of the Dibrugarh-Kanyakumari Vivek Express down India's eastern coast get to experience the longest train journey in the country and one of the top 10 longest train routes in the world. If you don't have the means or the patience to sit through the trip yourself, you can watch the highlights from the 85-hour ride in the two-minute video above.

As reported by Mashable, Canadian photographer Ed Hanley shot the footage while visiting India for the 10th time in his life in January. He documented what he referred to as "the Mount Everest of train journeys" in both a photo-essay and a mesmerizing video made from eight hours of footage.

The train is capable of holding more than 1800 passengers, but Hanley told Mashable he was the only person onboard who stuck it out for all 2633 miles of the route. After getting a condensed taste of his experience from the video, you can visit Hanley's website to see more photos from the trip.
