Looking for ideas of places to check out and also for any company from easy going, pleasant people to travel with
I'm volunteering in Palampur for 3 weeks, and am looking to travel around India after that, but only for about 1 week. I was thinking of checking out Jaipur , but am open to other suggestions. I love South Asian history and architecture and also just beautiful landscapes ! So any suggestions are welcome. And if there's anyone travelling around that time as well ... and looking for some company, let me know. I'm 23 yrs old coming from Canada
Just saw your post. One week is rather short, however, to make the most of it I suggest you visit McLeod Ganj, which is just a few hours from Palampur and is the abode of the Tibetan spiritual leader, The Dalai Lama. Palampur itself is quite picturesque having a few Tea Gardens. Dharamsala is also a nice little place nearby. Having done this you can come to New-Delhi, which is very rich in History and Architecture. If you still have time, go to Jaipur from Delhi which is only a 4 hour drive. And then, come back to Delhi and fly out to wherever you want to...and to top it all, I'll see you off at the Airport!, as I stay in Gurgaon, an outskirt of New-Delhi.
<snip. You could contact me if and whenever you want to.
Have a great trip!

I guess Jaipur would be the best option, colorful city with many historic places and a tourists delight. Couple of days here are just fine and one can visit Pushkar which is not too far. I am here till 3rd of 5th of March. If you are planning to come soon, an advance hotel booking may avoid hassles. I thought of checking in on arrival and had a place in mind, but only to no room available. Though, finally managed to find a descent hotel, but not without checking a couple of them first.
have a great trip.
PS: lemme know if you need any suggestion on where to stay.
some suggestions on wwhere to stay would be great!! thanks. i wont be there when your there though. but some information on accomodations would be helpful. im looking for something comfortable but not too pricey.
and yes, ive heard good things about pushkar - and plan to chekc it out. also - have you done any camel trekking out there?
Hi Lyss00, just saw your post. If you are looking for accommodation in Jaipur, check "Baba Haveli". The hotel is very economical and provide excellent facilities. The staff there is very co-operative. You can also check the reviews by various travelers about this hotel on tripadvisor. You can check the availability from their web-site.
Since you are in Palampur, you might want to try out North East India for a two week trip. Its definitely one of the most beautiful regions in India with a variety of wild life and mountains to look at. I would suggest Kaziranga national Park (Assam), Shillong and Cherrapunji (Meghalaya) and Tawang (Arunachal Pradesh) as your itinerary locations. You can contact Luit Holidays travel site for details. On the way back if you are returning via Delhi, you might want to go to Jaipur for a 2-3 day trip.
