Hi everyone,

I have a flight booked for Mumbai in early May. I have approx 5-6 to spend in India but also have planned to visit an orphanage in Bangalore for 2 weeks which has already been planned. I am wondering what the weather is like at this time of the year for North India? I would ideally like to visit Rajasthan and the Taj Mahal etc before I make my way to Bangalore as I am then flying out of Chennai. I would also ideally like to visit Goa beach but not sure if this will be the right time of year.

I have already visited the South of India last year so would ideally like to do North this time. I am unable to change the destination of my flights so I have to fly into Mumbai and out of Channai. The orphanage is in Bangalore and I can basically turn up there anytime so I thought I would leave that until I have seen some of the North.

Any suggestions would be most welcome. My main concern is the weather and if it will be too hot in the month of May/early April.

Thanks everyone!.

Kind of late reply. but...
May will be hot anywhere in India. So you will just have to cope.
From delhi, you could go to agra. Do a agra, fatehpur sikri.
From Agra go to Jaipur. do your rajasthan bit.
Jaipur, jodhpur, chittourgarh, jaisalmer, bikaner, ajmer... the works.
If you can, put in a bit of Himalayas. the higher places might not be open at that time, but at least you could go to Himachal / Uttaranchal.
On your way down south, you could go to bangalore via Goa. even though people avoid the beach during rains i'd say goa is good anytime of the year. You could climb down to bangalore doing the weastern coast from Goa down to mangalore.
i'd say research the places i've suggested, see what you fancy, and get back with how many days in which places. then take it from there.
