Just tell me your requirements ( what kinda place you like)slums, crowdy, calm, meditative, isolated, undiscovered, deserts, hills, tropicals, islands, whatever and whats your budget and i will try to plan your perfect holiday
>>1047636 I wanna go early next year, I'm think of going late January/early February for 3 months. Looking to spend less than $1000 a month. Was going to fly into Chennai and travel north. I'm definitely interested in Kerala/Tamil Nadu and I want to see some northern sites as well, I love hiking/mountains/nature etc.
>>1047771 First dint go to Chennai it is the worst, your budget us more than enough, even if you land in chennai go to kodaikanal (kerala) it is the best in south if you like mountains etc, after that just fly to new delhi and from there (dharamshala, shimala, etc) himanchal pradesh, and (mussoorie, lansdowne, rudraprayag etc .)uttrakhand will be the best destinatons for you, and you are Lso comming in the best time, they are all northern part of India, stay away from jammu and kashmir,, and also north-eastern parts are good also,
As somebody who has traveled around India quite a lot, this is terrible advice with no apparent rationale.
>Chennai is the worst >don't go to Jammu and Kashmir >go to other places because of mountains
People can have preferences. Maybe it's just the way that I am, but I don't like when others tell somebody not to visit a certain place because of their own perspective or biases.
Tamil Nadu has a ton of religious and cultural sites, many of which are proximate to Chennai. Starting in the south when the weather is bearable and moving north as the heat and humidity come back is a pretty regular and solid plan, in my opinion.
Not saying that you're wrong, bro, but virtually every state in India has something to offer travelers. The wealth of cultures, languages, and landscapes is half the Subcontinent's appeal. Also, I've been to J&K. People weren't the friendliest in the whole country, but I still had a great time.
Going in late May and I wanna stick to the north so as not to get beat down by humidity and the monsoon season. Planning to do something like New Delhi - Chandigarh - Amritsar - Dharamsala - Shimla - Rishikesh - New Delhi. That said I've only got about two weeks so I'll need to make cuts, probably Amritsar. Maybe Dharamsala just because of it being so annoying to get to but I'd prefer not to cut it.
>>1047897 Ok drop chandigarh, amritsar and rishikesh(they are only for whitewashing), dharamshala is good, shimla is also good, add mussoorie to your list and from 2 hour distance dheradun and lansdowne are also there! It will be almost 2 weeks, 1 for himanchal pradesh and 1 for uttrakhand
Thanks! It looks like a pretty good path, much less hectic than my first. What specifically would you guys recommend in Mussoorie? On a quick glance it looks like day 1 can be the waterfall, day two is the Tibetan Temple, and day three is Gun Hill or Everest Point.
Dude from the other India thread here. Paharganj is definitely the place to meet other travelers, but don't think that neighborhood is indicative or representative of the city as a whole. There are far more annoying touts, scammers, and beggars there and near CP than in other parts of the metropolis.
It's very easy to meet people, but you're best off not trusting locals you meet on the street who approach you. Bars are fine, as long as you initiate the conversation or they have no intention of bringing you to a "special" shop or tourist office.
>>1048151 Oh and before you start hating on me, i've done the whole backpacker thing for over ten years now and have been to 40+ countries. But for me and my wife this time we want to relax, see nice things and not worry about anything at all.
>>1048164 in addition i love towns, european influenced asia, i also like greenery. going with my mum who's 50ish so i probably can't trek mountains, she's indian but speaks tamil and english. i speak english only
>>1048146 Then you got to start from north then south and at last sri lanka, so North = himanchal pradesh ( mountains, nature, calm etc) Delhi = dense, slums, poverty, clubs, old landmarks, government bodies, (agra -3 hrs from delhi there is taj mahal) Rajsthan = deserts, castles, rich history, lot and lot of historic ruins, Mumbai = bollywood, slums, rich people, lot of clubs, hot chicks, vusut lonavla, pune from there also, Kerala = tropical lands, rich in nature, lot of good lakes. And lagoons, And then you go to sri-lanka
>>1048153 darjeeling and lansdowne And lansdowne is one of the calmest place i have ever been, clean and unexplored, there will be noo worries you will be isolated there Darjeeling. Is also great, good and high end hoteps but there will be lot of tourists, And last kodikanal =. Watch this video you will understand https://youtu.be/FvGKNE7zjJQ
>>1048235 Hey buddy thanks for the encouragement about kerala. Have any recommendations for things to do? It is a large state, which areas should i go to? I was suggested goa or pondicherie, are they hotter than kerala late december? Just to add i love arts and culture, and would love to see temples.
>>1048243 Kerala is no that hot, and goa is mostly for beaches, and pondcherie is for cheap alcohol(indian satire), kerala is good choice between the two, you will find lots of old and artistic temples in tamil nadu and kerala also do have them , for culture it is everywhere in INDIA ( whenever you will land to india, bammm the culture will be right in your face,) and fir good art i really dont know about this but kerla do host the auction of elite art in india ( i am sorry for this on)
