What is the best way to get to Varanasi from Chennai (not including flying - flying is my last option). I was hoping to catch a train but can't seem to find a direct train.
Thanks.

I went to change money into Indian Rupees and the money changer told me that he received a travel alert stating that non Indian Nationals are not allowed to bring Indian Rupees into India. Is this true? Anyone experienced any issues with bringing Indian Rupees into India?

Hi,

My friends and I are going to a wedding in Goa in October and then planning to spend Diwali in Mumbai. We have 6 days in between the two and were looking for ideas of what to do in between.

Any suggestions?

I am most certainly on some sort of spiritual quest so will be looking to spend a bit of time in Ashrams, studying Yoga and Meditation but also just relaxing amongst some incredible scenery.

Was hoping…

Dear hikers, i'm planing to walk all the way from Darjiling (west bengal) to Yoksum (Sikkim) through Singalila trek.
i know i need a permit for singalila, but couldn't understand the sikkim permit issue.

if i have the sikkim permit ready with me, is it OK to just cross while hiking and enter Sikkim? no checkpoint for stamping it or something else?

great thanks.
