I want to know how to reach Lakshadweep from Mumbai, where I am currently residing. Is there any port in Mumbai from where I can get a ship to go Lakshadweep or would I need to go to Kochi first? If I need to go Kochi is it better to get a flight or train? How do I reach Lakshadweep from Kochi? From where do I get the ship tickets from? Do I need to get the return tickets from Kochi or can they be brought from Lakshadweep?
