Hi, am a newbie here. Most of my travels have been regular routes. I have this great craving to explore India by backpacking across India. I was thinking about 3 months.

1) Anyone here done that before?
2) Anyone wants to join me? :-)

Backpacking India as we speak, 1st time travelling alone and loving it. If you have any questions i would be happy to help but replies might be a little slow.....

hi Zai,

when r u planning to visit india? i mean which months.

the best months to visit will be from September-november just after the rains. the weather is relatively cool and less opressive in most parts of the country.

Hello there,
I also have the plan to visit India or Nepal in Nov or Dec. But I didn't decide the destination until I can find the companion. For India, it will be my first time to be there. For Nepal, it will be my 2nd time and this time is mainly for Everest Base Camp Trekking.

Anybody has interest to join? Or please share more info about your plan. Then we can see if we can meet up with en route or join one or two parts of the trip.

I am plannng on attending a mediation retreat just out side of Kathmandu which starts in early nov. and ends in the middle of dec. I am currently trying to put together an itinary but like you greensquar, I would prefer to find a travel mate to hook up with when i get over there. I would like to do either thr EBC trek or the Anapurna curcuit trek (there are several others too to look at) I looks like if I do the retreat, then I would be trekking in Dec and Jan. When are you planning on trekking? I would like to spend some time in Tibet, in India and Arif (post #6) has tons of great info and has been helpful in planning an itinary for Inda leg with me, thanks Arif! If I have time and $$ I would love to get to Thailand as well. I am still very open with the itinary but my time frame is OCT/ NOV 07-APR 08. If any of this sounds appealing, perhaps we can discuss further and try to put something together.
