Passengers travelling by sea route from the mainland to Lakshadweep can now reach their destination five hours sooner. On Thursday, the high-speed vessel "Parali" ferried 160 passengers from Lakshadweep Islands to the Mangaluru old port in just seven hours, compared to the earlier 13 hours, on an experimental basis.

The first batch of tourists on the 'HSC Parali' said that it was a different experience and that the new vessel has not only high-speed connectivity but is also smoother by far than the earlier vessels that were modified to ferry passengers from cargo carriers.
