Hello,

I plan on visiting India in the fall.

I would like to experience a festival or two (I’m thinking Diwali on Nov 7). I’m open to other suggestions if there is something under the radar that I’m unaware of.

I am also planning to do my yoga teacher training, most likely in Kerala, and I would like to visit Hampi.

Would it make the most sense to fly into Bangalore to visit Hampi? Are there any sights near Hampi or on the way to Kerala I should not miss out on? Is it worth visiting…

Jodhpur - 2 or 3 nights

Dozens of residents of a northern village in Kerala are fleeing their homes (June 21, 2018) after a deadly virus killed four people and sent nine people to hospitals in the past few days. The state government of the southern state has sprung into action, setting up specialized viral labs and units in hospitals in the city of Kozhikode and urged people not to create panic.

The move comes at a time when hundreds of tourists are planning to visit the state during the monsoon for ayurvedic…

Hi guys

I will be in Kathmandu and needing to get to India as fast as I can by public transport to Chennai. I ve used both the Sunauli and the Birgunj border before but for Northern India, the latter of which took too long and was super dusty so trying to avoid that.

Do you think the Sunauli one would still be the fastest or will the Eastern border be a better option, the one near Siliguri (I believe there s only one on the East).

Thanks

Long-term trek plans for all around India then eventually Thailand and Cambodia. Open to detours and refined-yet-leisurely direction. More the merrier.

In September my boyfriend and I will have two weeks in south India after a pre booked tour of North India. The tour finishes in Goa, from there we were planing on taking the train to Hosapete to spend 3 days in Hampi and then afterwards the plan is to head south to spend a week or so in Kerala. My question is what would be the best way to enter and move around Kerala? I'm torn between overnight train from Hampi to Mysore and entering Kerala from the north or overnight train from Hampi to…
