I am planning a 2 month trip around India. I think I have anything settled on deciding the majority of my itinerary however after a lot of research I am sure unsure about the 3 weeks at the end of my trip that I have devoted to Karala/Goa/Mumbai.
Here is how it looks now:
TRIVANDRUM/KOVALAM - 1 day
VARKALA - 1 day
KOLLAM - ALLEPPEY - 2 days (on houseboat)
MUNNAR - 3 days
KOCHI - 3 days
CALICUT - 1 day
GOA - 5 days
AURANGABAD - 2 days
MUMBAI - 4 days
How does this look? Am I missing anything major? I decided to cut out Wayanad & Bangalore & Hampi due to time constraints and also because everything is so spread out.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated. For this leg of the trip, we are obviously interested in the Backwaters (is the Kollam to Alleppey houseboat enough?), beaches, nature (hill station in Munnar) and we wanted to leave some time to see ... more »
Would anyone care to recommend a reputable house boat company out of Cochin?
We plan to spent 2 nights on the backwaters in January 2014. There will be two couples (4 people) on the boat.
trying to decide whether to go to gangotri or not..
i'm in rishikesh and have 2 months. planning of going up to amritsar, mcleod ganj and around there, manali and parvatti valley, maybe spitti or kullu valley too and maybe ladakh before coming back to rishikesh
otherwise could go to gangotri now and if possible go on towards the parvati valley from there ??
thanks for the help!!

Also can you tell me something about weather in september?
Thanks a lot!!!!
I wanted to travel overland Iran-Pakistan-India, but I have problems with getting Pakistani visa.
Has anyone tried to get from Iran to India by boat?
If yes, where is a port in Iran? And where in India can you disembark?
Otherwise: any cheap flights?

i will be traveling from dehradun to malana in first week of june. this will be my first time so i am little curious. my idea is to just lay back and relax in the beautiful valley for a week or two. i will be traveling alone.
important suggestions and tips are welcome.
Also, if anyone is planning the same route, then we can plan it together.
my plans are flexible.
On 3 july we want to take the Himalayan Queen Toy train in Kalka trainsstation to Simla at 12:10.
We leave from Chandigarh.
1) What time does the bus leave in Chandigarh. We'd like to be around 11 am in Kalka trainstation
2) Address or sector of the busstation in Chandigarh
3) Does this bus go to Kalka trainstation? The station is 8km outside Kalka. If not how can we reach the station from Kalka on.
A big thank you!
Hello friends, my name is Pushpesh Baid. I want to ask you about traveling spots in Tamilnadu and rest of south India because I am to go to south India in July. Please suggest me from your personal experiences.
going to Kerala again next year in January.
Last time, stayed in Kochi and made trips to Munnar, Cherrai Beach, backwaters (just for a day trip) and around the old town.
We are calling in there for about 8 days again and are looking for suggestions what to do.
We have thought about National Parks for a couple of days, houseboat for a couple of days, etc. We fly out of Kochi but we are flexible and can fly into TRV or Kochi. We will have spent some time in beach resorts in Sri Lanka before arrival so we are not necessarily looking for a relax on the beach but would like to see new things.
Looking forward to reading your suggestions.
I am going to Varanasi on october and I would like to know if someone have any idea of how can I find a guide to stay with me there and know well the place and the culture.
I am a photographer and I will have to find a guide who stays with us all day. Somes times wake up until sun rises, somes times stay with us late at night, and also take us to places that not normal tourists usually go.
I'm taking two separate flights with two separate airlines as follows:
1. Kathmandu, Nepal to Delhi
2. Delhi to Bishkek, Kyrgyzstan
Assuming that these flights are within 48 hours or closer, do I need an Indian transit visa? I'm American, if that matters.
