Hello Everyone! I am looking for travel advice on my first trip to India, begining October 12 and ending December 13. I am traveling solo. On a low-medium budget. I prefer to travel by train, I am slightly terrified of the buses in India from all of the stories I have heard.
--I arrive in Mumbai and after a couple of days would like to head off to Khajuraho by train. I am not sure how easy it is to take the train there.
--I want to be in Agra by the full moon viewing, so I must be there by the 18th.
--From there I want to take a train to Jaipur. I also want to visit Jodhpur and Udaipur, maybe Jaisalmer?
--Then I plan to go back through Jaipur, leading to Delhi.
I think about three weeks is a good amount of time for all of this???
Here is where the traveling gets tricky. . .
--Fly from Delhi to Chennai. Stay a couple of days then down south to Mamallapuram and then on to Auroville near Pondicherry.
--Ideally from there I would like to get down to Kanyakumari, if it is possible.
--My next stop is Trivandrum. From there I hope to work my way up the coast in Kerela from Kollam to Kochi to Kozihikode to Bekal.
--In Karnataka I would like to see Mysore, Bangalore, Madikeri, Mangalore, Venur, Gokarna, Hopset, Hampi and Badami.
--Maybe on my way back to Mumbai I will stop in Goa. . .not sure if I will have time. I would also like to see Pune, but still not sure about timing.
I would love any advice anyone can pass on. I have two months to do all of this, and would like to see every place I listed, but don't want to stress myself out. I am not sure if I am attempting too much or not.
And hey, if anyone wants to join me on a leg of this journey, I am open to that, as long as you are a being of integrity
Thanks for the help!

Yes, three weeks are good enough for Mumbai-Khajuraho(via Jhansi)-Agra-Jaipur-Udaipur-Jodhpur-Jaisalmer-Delhi.

The Diwali vacations will be on in India form Oct.23(approx.) for three weeks, hence ensure that all your train bookings for this period are done well in advance.
Whoever said money can't buy happiness didn't know where to shop !
