I will be in North India volunteering for 1 month, and will be seeing jaipur, agra, delhi, dharmasala, and palampur during that month. Is it worth travelling down to the South for 1 week after that? I was thinking to Mumbai and Goa, or should I just spend that 1 week up North? I love seeing historic sites and beautiful landscapes ... should I save south india for another trip?

Does anyone have any other suggestions of places to check out in Northern India? Thank you!
i would stay up North and if you have mentioned 'save south for another trip' already it seems you wish to go back already and will give you more an excuse to go back again 😊
As for other places.. Varanasi (very historis), Jaisalmer (my fav spot and beautiful city) and if time maybe go and do some yoga in Rishikesh (beautiful landscape and also can see views of the Indian Himalayas if you go for a day trip..
We have done blogs on each of those places wich I will add below plus they have plenty of pictures, well wont add Varnasi as I am sure you know what to expect 😊
Relaxed to Nightmare
Finishing up in India
thank you ! this is extremely helpful ... haha, and yes youre right.... I seem to have already started planning for a next trip ! ... so Ill likely hold off, and enjoy everything the north has to offer this time round ..
Both North India and South India are equally good. Only in North India you would find more historic places like the famous Taj Mahal. In North India, you would lot of hill stations and pilgrimage destinations as well. Rajasthan, Madhya Pradesh, Delhi, would provide array of tourist attractions to explore. <snip>
Hey if you are going to south India then must see Muttukadu and Udhagamandalam.
And also try the adventures like Aqua Sports,Hang-Gliding.

I would recommend you to stay in north India. And you should visit more beautiful places like Simla, Lucknow, Amritsar and other places. I hope you enjoy the trip.
Wat is ur xact travel time? ping mr.. i'm a travel mngmt student... at Indian Institute of Travel and Tourism management.
Both North and south India are very beautiful places.Its upto you what type of beauty you want to enjoy. North India is famous for its historical Heritage and Mountainous sceneries while in south India you can enjoy the beautiful Beaches.

Yes you are right the both north India and south India are beautiful places to visit. If you plan to visit south India you can visit Goa, Mumbai, Chennai, Kanya kumari, and the historical places like Mysore, Hyderabad.

The places you mentioned are worth visiting but how could you forget Jammu and Kashmir, Kashmir being the heaven on earth. OK, taking into consideration that the heaven is under threat from the terrorists, you could visit any nearby place which is equally mesmerising in its beauty and serene environment, just like Kashmir used to be a few decades back. <snip>

During Travel for volunteering you can spend more time in Mumbai that is tourist as well business hub also. Last Time when I got cheap flights Mumbai from Melbourne by Indian Travel Agent Mann Travel Australia, I visit Delhi as well as Uttrakhand, Haridwar.
Enjoy your trip....
I highly recommend that It will be better if you visit in north India because there is top tourist destination than South India. But all depend on you that how to manage to see your priority and deadline. <snip>

south India and north India both have many historical and beautiful places to visit, that is purely up to you and if you want to visit south India i recommended visit Goa beach and kanya kumari and Tirupathi(which is world famous god) in AndhraPradesh.
I suggest you to visit god which is a amazing and beautiful place for 1 week hangout. Try this and share your experience with us.
Our very first visit to Goa was for one week only. It was back in the old ‘Teletext Holidays’ days and we got an amazing last minute deal one Xmas eve for a week flying out New Years Day. Of course then you were able to get your Visa from the Indian Embassy. We drove up on Boxing Day (a normal working day at the Embassy), parked trotting distance away from the Embassy as London was deserted and the parking meters were free as Public Holiday, Embassy almost deserted too and we were back in the car within the hour ....... wish we could have that sort of luck with the Lottery!!
Good luck finding a good deal and happy holidays
I think north and south are equally beautiful to visit where ever you want to go. But i suggest you to visit all two spot. I tell us your experience to us.
Its a worth visit to south India too. If you are interested in historic places south India is the best option, in south you will find ancient temples, darghas, mosques, churches etc. Tamil Nadu is a land of historic temples, Karnataka, kerala is best for sight seeing.
Have you a nice Trip.
Its a good idea to visit these places. I have also been through these places. <snip>
