Hi,

I'm looking to go to India, Sri Lanka, and Nepal from April to May (2 months). Any tips or recommendations? I'm looking to do some cool treks, adventures, and visit nice beaches. Open to anything though! :)

Thanks in advance!

MM

India is a big country.
You could easily spend 6+ months just travelling there.
So what are your 'Must See' sites?

Your profile doesn't mention what country you're from.
Are you comfortable in extremely hot places?

I suggest to read more blogs in here about all three countries. Your questions are way to broad. Specify more the regions, interests, etc. I think this way you'll get more from the forum here.

A couple of good treks in Sri Lanka are to Adam's Peak and in Horton Plains National Park.

Check out Sigiriya, a historic rock fortress with a climb to the top. Also the Temple of the Tooth in Kandy.

Nice beaches - Unawatuna in Sri Lanka, on the SW coast between Colombo and Galle. Heaven on earth and not too commercialised.

Fill out your bio.

Don't wait to the last minute to research the visa requirements for each country. Know how to best handle your money. Safeguard your passport. Any random person who gets chummy with you real quick consider they may want your money or get in your pants if you are a female. Always think safety first!

Hygiene. I am a fussy eater compared to other tourists who gobble up every smelly, disgusting looking thing they see on the menu! Before you touch any food you will eat - immediately clean your hands off! This will help prevent you transferring crap from your hands to your mouth! (Or you could be laid up in your room barfing in a toilet all day!)

There are quite a few posts for visiting India. Locate some and read up. Google searches can help you with "how to get from one place to another" type questions. Always investigate potential scams you may encounter.

".. and visit nice beaches."

Nice beaches - for me first thought would be Thailand, Philippines, Indonesia and Malaysia.

Good luck.

India is big country. You should make a plan which part of the country you want to visit. If you like beaches then Goa will be the perfect place for you.

Although I do like Goa (even though it's so heavily tourist orientated), there are lots of excellent beach places in India.
My suggestion would be any beach in Kerala.
