Hi Pam.

I've travelled the north and south of the region on two different trips. I personally would start in Nepal or North East India. The best time of year for that region is October/December so hopefully the humidity won't be too oppressive. Kathmandu is lovely that time of year and will be a good warm up for India. the Nepalese are lovely people and spending some time there is a nice training introduction to the chaos that is India (it's a good chaos)

Varanasi is a must, being the religious heart of the most spiritual countries in the world. You'll kick yourself if you don't go watch the locals in action as they repeat a ritual/meditation that has been in use for hundreds of years.

I loved Jaipur, the pink city has so much to offer from ancient observatories, cloth markets to huge fortified palaces.

If you'd like more information on the routes I chose just pop me a msg, I'd love to forward you on my journal notes and travel photos

Kapaleeshwarar Temple

You have very best destinations in India, full of cultural values and beautiful natural scenarios. In South you have Kerala, Chennai. South India is full of Temples, Backwaters, humidity. One of the ISO certificate winning temple at Chennai is: Kapaleeshwarar temple. Then you have Darjeeling in West Bengal. It is queen of hills. Tea plantation is a famous and very well known occupation of Darjeeling. The best place i found was North India's Uttarakhand. To get more information on best destinations of India i got one blog : Kapaleeshwarar Temple Reply to this

Welcome in India! I hope you are enjoying your stay!

I recommend you to discover the secrets and the colors of Rajasthan by visiting beautiful cities such as Jaipur, Pushkar, Jodhpur, Jaisalmer and then Udaipur.

I can also recommend you very nice hotels in this area where you can enjoy very beautiful landscapes and where you are immerged into Indian culture: <snip>

I hope it will help you!

It's better to start your trip from north as towards the second half of your planned six months northern India will be extremely cold. Ladakh and other Himalayan regions will close for tourists by October. In the south, Kerala has pleasant climate almost throughout the year. Even the heavy monsoon season is enjoyable as the state will be brimming with greenery. You can wind up your trip in God's own country Kerala. Reply to this

You might want to check out North East India as part of your travel plans. It has a wide variety of wildlife, nature, and mountains (Himalayas) which you can check out. I would suggest Kaziranga National Park in Assam ,with ethnic tree top house resorts and also the land of the famed one-horn Rhino and elephant Safaris, Shillong (aka Scotland of the East) and Cherrapunji (highest rainfall in the world) in Meghalaya and Tawang with the beautiful Himalayas on one side and the Buddhist Monasteries to look at in Arunachal Pradesh. Ideally it should be 2 weeks trip and also not expensive considering the length of the trip. There are pretty decent travel agencies with a lot of customized travel options out in Guwahati, Assam. <snip> is one you can check out. You should be able to google it pretty easily.

You can start here at <snip> if you are planning to tour India. If you plan it yourself, you might save some money, but having an expert travel service will take much of the headache out of it--and is well worth the extra cost!
