Hi everyone, I'm planning a backpacking trip across India from June to August this year. I'm looking for culture, as opposed to wild partying etc. My two questions are these:

Given the period when I plan to travel, June to August, which areas would be best to visit weather wise?

I've been told three months may be too much time to spend in India, and I would like to maybe spend a few weeks outside the country, so which neighbouring countries would people recommend, again given the weather for that period etc.?

Also, just any advice/tips/suggestions people have would be much appreciated!

Thankyou everyone,

Chris

According to me, Shimla in India is a nice destination to enjoy weather along with food while planning for a holiday tour in India.

My suggestion would be to start the tour from North of India and then come down south. That way you wont face harsh climates anywhere considering the time of your travel.

cheers,

Everywhere is hot at summer time. Delhi is melting. Trivandrum is boiling. Avoid big cities and aim high. The climate is more toleratable in high altitudes.
