I am getting problems with the cleartrip website. After I submit payment, I am not redirected to irctc and get prompted for credentials for cleartrip.beta.com. If I use the Cleartrip username and password it doesn't work, neither does the irctc one. I have to cancel and then the payment is taken and the booking fails.
It has been like this since 8pm UK time last night and I have tried on two different computers with two different browsers. I have logged a call with Cleartrip support, but…
We are travelling to India this December and would like to know which train to take. We will be staying at Palolem beach. It is better to take a train from:
Cancona station: depart 23:30, arrive 13:20 Kochi

A friend and myself have recently began thinking about a three week trip to India in June/July (these are the only months where we have 3 consecutive weeks as we are in university and have various events in August).

Hi folks! I just found out my work is sending me to India for about 10 days starting December 5. The closest I've been to South Asia is Thailand, and I know NOTHING.

- in Mumbai I'll probably be in or near Chembur
- in Delhi, I'll likely be in or near Vasant Vihar
Not-to-be-missed sites further afield in those cities are also…
First of all has anyone travelled into india from nepal by bus, more specifically Kathmandu to Varanasi?
Also im a uk resident and ill get a 30day e-visa for my time in india. Can i only be allowed entry via an airport or is it possible by road?
So I'm travelling to India in March and will have about a week of time to fill. I'm planning to visit Varanasi, but would like to see some more remote places afterwards. Is there anywhere in northern Uttar Pradesh or Bihar that is worth seeing for some more outdoors-y activities?
I'm starting to think that it might be a better way to fill this trip by visiting either Amritsar or Jaisalmeer.
