Travelling to India

I am travelling to India with my dog

I am planning to travel to the South of India next year with my dog. I have gone to India 5 years back. So this time I am mostly exploring the less crowded, less explored places of India. I also missed out on houseboating last time, so I'm doing that also. While researching I came across <snip> and I am planning to book a houseboat with them. So my doubt here is, is it allowed to take my dog along with me in this houseboat stay?

Firsty, did you take your dog on your previous visit to India? If so, you'll be aware that rabies is endemic there - not just in dogs but in monkeys and other animals too and that an estimated 25,000+ humans die from the disease every year there. I hope you - and your dog - take all the necessary precautions, including avoiding the hundreds of street dogs you'll doubtless encounter!

With regard to houseboats, I assume you're travelling to Kerala and want to visit the backwaters there. Website addresses aren't allowed in the forums, so I don't know the company you found in your research. On my visit a few years ago, I used Southern Backwaters and found them very reliable (Google them). You would need to contact them to ask about taking a dog on board. Reply to this

hi.. I would like to thank you that you have planned again to visit india. As per my openion, the place which have less crowd is Rajasthan. In Rajsthan , you will also get a chance to visit so many historic places with a delicious rajsthani food. And ,as you have misses last yr houseboating. For this, i would recommeond to visit jaisamand in rajasthan.You can experience anot only house boad but also a restaurant in boat and its also called the catamaran boat.The catamaran boat will be an air-conditioned restaurant. This restaurant will run in the lake. The tourists coming here will be able to admire the beauty of the lake from inside the restaurant in the royal style and can also take lunch and dinner here. Even the catamaran boat between the lakes will be able to organize up to the tourist or city dweller party, the marriage party.

Thank you...have a superb holidays.

If you want to go on a houseboat trip then Kerala is a must visit place for you. Kettuvallam is the name of house boat used in Kerala. This houseboat is available in a variety of shapes and sizes. So I think you must go here on this trip. Reply to this

You must visit Mysore city.. Mysore, a city in India's southwestern Karnataka state. The palace blends Hindu, Islamic, Gothic and Rajput styles. Mysore is also home to the centuries-old Devaraja Market, filled with spices, silk and sandalwood. Reply to this
