First time visitor to India. I only have 10/12 days to visit India and cant decide between North or South India. And i am a bit worried that since the first time visiting the North might be too much for my husband and he wont want to return. whereas should we go south i think then he ll want more and agree to see Rajastan and the North.
Some help please
It's great that you are travelling to India.
You should decide between north and south India based on your interests and season of travelling.
If you are planning to visit in Summer, you can visit Himachal Pradesh, Sikkim, Kashmir, Uttrakhand, etc.
These are hilly areas and the temperature will bearable. As outsiders find India very hot in summer
and it could be unbearable. India is known for its diversity and I am sure you will love most of the places.
South India is going to be very hot in Summer season (April to August). I will suggest you to visit North India
in summer. But all the places in North India are not okay to visit in summer. Rajasthan is in North West part of
India and is also very hot in summer.
[ Edit: Sorry, no promos please. ]
Thanks. We were going there in November and will now probably go to both Rajasthan and Kerala. But still looking into it. I shall certainly have a look at your website and should we decide to proceed i will get in touch with you. Thanks again
I love India but I must admit summer is really something there but overall my trip there was absolutely perfect. Don't go in South during April because that's really really hot believe me as I've experienced that. Just to be safe take his suggestion and visit North and visit Rajasthan and you will love it.
You should check the weather in the north on November. in my opinion this is a good month to travel to the south because it is getting cold and grey in many places. You can travel to Hampi, it is amazing there and you can stay there for at least one week and travel from there.
I am totally satisfied with Aditya's answer because. I was also going to India in my holidays and there I found all that.
India packs a lot into a massive space, and you'll never have time to see it all on one trip. Think about what interests you, what you like doing and how much time you have, and tailor your trip accordingly. Be realistic about how much you can fit in. Rather than trying to see the whole country, you may get more out of your trip if you concentrate on the south of the country, or on the north.
