What is the most user friendly site for me to research and understand options for travelling in Southern India using trains. I have looked at "Clear travel", "Yatra", "Make my trip", "Irctc", "Irctc clear trip", and "India rail" and now i am thoroughly confused!
P.S. Is food included in 2ac class travel?

Hi,

I'm going to Nepal and India (and maybe Pakistan) this fall. I'm thinking about getting my visa for India in Nepal, where I'm staying for the first 1,5 months, because otherwise I'll may run out of time in India.

When I'm in Nepal is it also possible for me, I live in the Netherlands, to apply using the eVisa? Or should I use the normal procedure via the Indian consulate in Kathmandu?

Regards,

Constant

I am Canadian and about to apply for an eVISA for India. I will be stating that my first entry to India is by air.

During that time I would like to visit Nepal, crossing by land border, then return to India about 1 week later all in the same 30 day period

Will there be a problem returning to India or will I need another VISA?

Many Tx

Hi everyone,
My husband and I will fly to India on the 4th tome for 3 weeks (in October).
We are planning on spending a few days in Delhi-Varanasi-Bohdgaya-Kolkata (puja durga)-Darjeeling-Sikkim-kolkata (fly to BKK).
We will have 7 days in Darjeeling and Sikkim. Do you think it's enough time to spend in Darjeeling+ see some of Sikkim?
Where would you recommend we should visit in Sikkim?
We are looking for beautiful villages,with peacefull monastries. Big cities are also good but I don't think it's…

Hello,

I am flying to Hong Kong in mid-September with a 15 hour stopover in New Dehli and I am hoping to take the chance to see some of the city. I have two questions.

  1. With such a short time what should I try and see? I expect to have from 11 in the morning to about 9 in the evening free.

  2. From my research I think the best visa will be an e-Tourist visa is that correct? Does anyone know how long it will take to process and the cost for a UK citizen?

Thanks for your help.

Hi all - I am planning my honeymoon (which will take place 9 months after the actual event, but whatever!) I could use some expert advice on Kerala. We are going on the Golden Triangle week one, which seems like a sensible way to get a taste for India without overdoing it too much. For week two we want to turn it down a few notches and relax - hence Kerala.
We've obvs been educating ourselves on where/what/why of Kerala but can't seem to find a specific destination that would fit our needs.
