Hi all,

So I have a trip coming up in India which will be 6-7 weeks long.

I will be arriving in Chennai around the 1st of December and had initially planned out a trip going from Chennai and ending up in Kolkata via the North West with lots of stops planned (10+).

Reading through these boards now leaves me with two issues:
  • I think I've really overloaded my itinerary
  • Fog in December/ January impacting travel plans in the North West

Would a more reasonable itinerary be to go from Chennai to the North West?
I'll be travelling solo, have done lots of Asia before and am young and fit...if any of that makes a difference haha.

Any advice would be great. Pretty open to changing my entire trip at the moment.

You've got a clean slate to work with. Lucky you. Are you leaving from Chennai as well? You could stay south in the states of Tamil Nadu, Kerala and Goa. But with 6 or 7 weeks you can expand your range.

What are you into? Beaches? Temples? Wildlife? Focusing in on what you'd like to see and do will help direct you.

Don't have to leave from Chennai but I do need to fly back to Kuala Lumpur as i've got a ticket going back to Australia from there.

Not really that big into beaches, would love to see some wildlife though!

If you share the outline of your original plan we have an idea in which places you are interested.
This makes it easier to advise you.
