Hi,
My brain hurts from so much reasearch.
Could anyone tell me real quick about how much USD or RS it costs to take a bus or a train from:
New Delhi to Agra
and
Agra to Varanasi
1. Is it better to use a bus or train.
2. Can you walk from town to town in India? Are there backpacking trails with other backpackers walking?
3. Is it safe? Can you always find a place to eat and sleep if you are walking 15 miles a day? or could you find yourself in the middle of nowhere when night falls?
I am going for the first time in middle sept. for 5 months.
I don't want to have to ride a bus everywhere I go.
Thanks everyone for the help!

Delhi to Agra - Rs.370 on Shatabdi, AC chair car. This is the most preferred way to travel. May be half of it in second class.

Agra to Varanasi - Rs.233 on second sleeper.

1. Trains are invariably better, except on short distances(like 100-200kms)
2. No, they would be too far for walking.
3. At 15 miles a day, it is very much possible that you could be in the middle of nowhere. I don't think it's a great idea trying to walk between towns everywhere.
