I am traveling to India just after Christmas the plan is to travel into Mumbai then Goa for NYE, then head to Hampi and South of India (Kerela region, etc) then head back up to Mumbai to the Rajasthan area, then onto Nepal.

So thinking of 2 months in India (North and South and then a month in Nepal). I want to try and keep my travel plans fluid so don't want to pre-book a trek in Nepal yet, but I do need to get back to London in April as I plan to fly out to Mexico in May/June for 10 months in Central and South America.

I currently have a one-way ticket booked, but unsure whether to change to a return (and pay the change and flight fees) just apprehensive as I do not want to book in my trek and do not want to be tight on time in Nepal.

Rough plan:

Goa, Hampi, Gokarna
Kerela Region - Ashrams Kochi: Munnar, Alleppy, Thekkadu, Madurai - Meenakshi temple ( 4 hours away)( Kovalam, varkala, marari beaches)
Mumbai - Ajanta and Ellora caves.
Rajasthan - Jaisalmer, Ranthambore NP, Pushkar, Jodhpur, Udipur, Chittorgarh Fort
Golden Triangle: Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur


Everest base camp or Annapurna Trek
Chitwan/Bardia N P (west Nepal)
Bandipur: village

Any thoughts really appreciated

India and Nepal are two of the most popular destinations for travel worldwide. There is a multitude of attractions that can be enjoyed, including ancient ruins, beaches, mountain ranges, and more.
When planning your trip to India or Nepal, the various climate zones must be kept in mind. While both countries have a variety of climates, you should avoid traveling during summer if you're susceptible to heat-related illness. Instead, choose winter or autumn as your best time to visit. Additionally, ensure adequate dietary supplies are available before traveling; many restaurants do not serve traditional Indian food items like spices and legumes for religious reasons!

A quick question about treks, would you book this in ahead of arriving if I would like to trek in April, or can I easily book whilst there?
