Hello to everyone,
I´m planning to go to Leh at the end of June and I would like to make a trekking tour (about 5-6 days, moderate difficulty).
Can someone recommed me a reliable travel agency and maybe which would be a nice itinerary as well?
Does someone know the "Ladak eco-adventures"`?
Thank you in advance!!
It is summer again, the fun time for all young backpackers. Why not pack your bags and make your feet do the talking with the lands of India?
My blog-story centers around India and Indians whilst foreign travelers focusing to make way for a thrilling, exciting and amusing retreat.This is a snippet from my annual fortnight rendezvous at India when I get a chance to reconnect with the warm people and cultures of this country and so many things - never seen before.
When I first stepped onto the land of India in the May-June scorching summer period, believe me, I was petrified. My very next move - Jump on a Hilly 'Relief' Area. Adamant by nature and having the deep urge to experience every bit of a thing, I was back to the sweltering capital of 'Incredible India'.

I am planning to go to India for 3 weeks in July. I was thinking about Dehli – Mumbai (2 weeks) with occasional cities in between, and one week in Goa the final week. Could someone tell me if these are good places to go in July or is the weather too hot/monsoon, etc?
We will have a short holiday in Kerala and will take a trip to one of the National Parks.
I hope to get recommendations to either Mudumalai or Wayanad as we do not have time to visit both - or is it possible on the same 3 day trip out of Kochi?
We are planning on a 20 weeks-trip through Asia and for the moment we thought about going to Nepal, India, Sri Lanka and Myanmar. Ever since we read some negative posts about Sri Lanka on this forum (mainly about being an overprized -compared to nearby countries- island with lots of people trying to rip you off) we're asking ourselves whether it's a good idea to go to Sri Lanka.
Instead of going to Sri Lanka (4 weeks) we're considering going to the Andaman Islands (2 weeks) and also spending some more time (2 weeks) in South India. (For now we restricted ourselves to mainly Kerala, Hampi and Tamil Nadu in the South.)
Would you recommend going to Andaman Islands instead of Sri Lanka?
Thanks a lot !
My wife and I will possibly be living in India next year.
Which of the following cities would you say is the best choice (to live in)?
Decent healthcare, safety, low pollution and good flight connections would obviously be big plusses.
A nice 'feel' to the city would be one as well, and of course the friendliness of the people in it
(some of these parameters are arbitrary of course).
Hope some of you can help make this decision a bit easier by sharing your experiences in these cities...
Thanks in advance!!
as i have a double entry visa to india with the permission to visit sikkim for 15 days...... what i have done already...(fly to india, visit sikkim, go back through kolkata/delhi back to europe.
So is my 2nd entry to india now already used (because i was in sikkim...) , or not??
i just read.heard mixed answers, so i want to make sure that i can reenter india (2 month waiting period is over ...) without any hassles, or do i need a new visa
(also considered the 6 month validation, thats all ok ...)
thanks a lot to all your visa experts!
We did the way to India by car and to take it back home we'd like to send it by sea in container. Can anyone suggest a reliable shipping company from Delhi/Mumbai/elsewhere?
We're visiting jaipur next week for 3 days. i wanted advice as are 3 days enough to get to see jaipur because we're only planning to visit jaipur from the state of rajasthan (jodhpur jaisalmer udaipur are excluded as we are bound by time) before we make our way down south. should we go with 3 days itself or stay for longer in jaipur. i know we cannot get to know the entire state in just one city but want to make the most out of it.
Also can we take a detour for a day just before we leave i mean is any place worth a day's trip from jaipur?
any help appreciated
Next August we plan a trip in South India. This would be our itinerary:
Varkala-kochi (karkidaka vavubali festival)
Allepey (boat race)-mettapaluyam
Mettapaluyam-0oty (toy train)
What do you think about this itinerary? Are we distributing adequately the number of nights, according to the interest of each place? We have some doubts on how relatively wothwhile are Munnar, Ooty and Wayanad (we would like to do some trekking).
Could anyone reccomend any specific homestay or hotel? Any reliable backwaters boat?
Thank you more »
Could Anyone give us reccomendations on car rental in South India? We are a group of seven (3 kids) and would like to rent a big car for 21 days starting in Chennai and finishing in Bangalore.
Any reliable company? Prices? Car models? Any other reccomendation? Thanks a lot.

I have heard that Shadipur Depot in Delhi is the place where many of the circus performers, actors and musicians live, and do street performances. Is it common to find musicians jamming on the streets? Would it be difficult for connect with a few musicians and ask them to do an impromptu performance for a photoshoot?
“ In some ways people had got used to the idea that India was spiritual and religion-oriented. That gave a leg up to the religious interpretation of India, despite the fact that Sanskrit had a larger atheistic literature than what exists in any other classical language. Madhava Acharya, the remarkable 14th century philosopher, wrote this rather great book called Sarvadarshansamgraha, which discussed all the religious schools of thought within the Hindu structure. The first chapter is "Atheism" – a very strong presentation of the argument in favor of atheism and materialism. Amartya Sen
If you have a few weeks to spare before leaving the sub-continent and you want a hefty dose of Tamil/Chola history and culture, would your time be better spent in Tamil Nadu or Sri Lanka?
