Hi there - needing to book train tickets for Dalhi to Varanasi and Varanasi to Agra, night trains in July.

My friends and I will be in India for Holi. We know it is more celebrated in the North but can get a bit out of control. We have also traveled northern India on a previous adventure and we are wanting to do more of the south this time around. We have read a lot of conflicting things saying that it is celebrated in southern India and that it isn't. We are wondering if anyone has experienced Holi festival in southern India or Goa?
Has anyone gone to one of those elephant orphanage places like elefantastic or eleday? I love elephants and wanted to check out one of these places for a half day. Hopefully a place that treats these animals ethically, and although it is expensive it could potentially be a cool experience.
I'll be in Goa mid March and looking for a nice beach to relax, tan a bit and meet other travelers and backpackers after a long northern India journey.
All suggestions are so much appreciated.
Thank you all!
First time in India next year.
We will begin in Rajasthan, then we head south.
Jaisalmer and Udaipur is already decided.
We don't have the time for all three (bundi, pushkar and jodhpur) Only two. Which two should we choose?
Thanks for reply.
