Our hope is to find a place we can do some walking in a natural environment but where flooding or landslides are unlikely to happen. We were thinking of Cherrapunji or somewhere in Great Himalayan National Park, though are open to…
I would like some advice for a north/NE itinerary, I'm there for 6 weeks from late May, flying in and out of Delhi. First time in India.
Main plan is to slowly travel north from Delhi to Leh, via Rishikesh, Shimla, Manali, Dharamshala, spending a few of days in each area and maybe a week in Leh/Ladakh.

This June and August I will visit India. I've been reading that India can be strict when it comes to clothing. But I still read different opinions, so I'm a little worried what to bring since I wear a lot of shorts (with nothing hanging out as some ladies have...) and tank tops. I don't want to upset anyone.
Places we will be visiting: Bangalore (and a small surrounding area), Delhi, Jaipur, Agra, Veranasi (and some places in between).
Obviously I know for temples and other holy sites it…
