Hi there

Im planning a 3 week trip to India beginning on the last week in Feb.

i ve got 3 questions
1 Is my plan missing anything ie a place that def cant be missed ??!!
2 how long do i have to allocate for each place really ??
3 and well not really a Question but any suggestions really that could help!!!

I was hoping to
fly Mumbai visit
<<<<< Ajanta and Ellora
<<<< Do a camel safari in Jaisalmer
<<< The Golden temple at Amritsar,
<<<< the Taj at Agra, ( 1st march for Holi)
<<< Varanasi,
from here im not sure if i should head back to Dheli or if there is something i can catch on the way back to mumbai ??

I would also love to get down to Palolem beach, Hampi and Kerela but im fairly sure I'm not going to have time!

Thanks for taking the time to read this.

Hey leon!

Welcome to tp...

Your itinerary looks good..did you not fancy the coast ? Goa? Or up north of delhi to the foot hills? My favorite spot in India was up north.

I did a four day camel trek in Bikaner, best thing I did...give it as much time a you can...I had an amazing tour guide called Harpool Singh if you want his address I can give you it, just message me, not sure if he's still going but you could do a hell of a lot worse and he's a fantastic chef. Best food I had!!

I'd give Varanasi a good couple of days, be careful of finding a spot to stay, we got in a spot of bother there with copycat hostels. Agra only needs a morning to see the taj, not much else to reccomend the place!

Happy planning....

Mim;)

I spent a little time in Palolem last time i was her and that place holds many memories for me, I might get there at the end of the trip not too sure yet !! as for the foot hills ??? will have to do more research !! and 4 days on camels hmmm !! was thinking of a day maybe 2 at most !

any nice beaches i could visit on the way between mumbai and Dheli perhaps ?

thanks again

Hey Mim,

If you are coming all th way to Amritsar than dont miss Dharamsala the residence of his holiness the Dalai Lama who gives his talks during then. Also haridwar and rishikesh are really cool. You should either do North India in three weeks or south India , dont try to mix the two as they are totally diffrent. Also try some snow borading at manali.

Cheers
