Hello again,

I am going to be in india in april 2007 for most probably a month and am planning to start in varanasi, delhi, agra, jaipur, udaipur, jaisalmer, jodhpur, ranthambore np, then down south.

What good tings are there to see down south? Should i do the east or west coast? how much should i budget? will it all be possible within this timescale?

Thanks in advance,
Stumpy :)

It is going to be pretty hot for you touring Rajasthan in April. I was adviced not to consider Punjab in May by other Travellerspoint members so passing on the advice to you as well.

Tamil Nadu along the eastern coast of the South is filled with very old temples and I always consider the state ideal for spiritual pursuits or temple-hopping. There are nice hill stations also (Ooty, Kodaikanal).

Kerala, along the western coast, would be ideal for a relaxing holiday, along the backwaters on a houseboat or ayurvedic resort.

If you don't mind the heat, then stick to the places you listed. The places you mentioned in Rajasthan and Varanasi are plenty to fill a month. You won't have time to go further unless you are planning an exhausting whirlwind trip. In the heat of the pre-monsoon, I wouldn't recomend that. Take it slow.

But if you prefer not to roast, then head down South. Kerela is a good place to start and had lots to see, such as beaches like Varkala, the backwaters, hill stations, and Cochin. Then you can move up to Karnataka to see Mysore and Hampi which are both great. Then you can head to Goa to finish up with some beach time. This would make for a relaxing month with a few great sites thrown in. Tamil Nadu is also a good option and as mentioned before has lots of temples and stuff to see.

Get up early. take some rest in the afternoon or spend some time in an AC environment. From 4PM start exploring again. It is never too hot to see these places. Its the best of India in my opinion.
