Hi,

I'm planning to travel around India for about three and a half months from the start of September until mid-December, starting in Delhi.

My plan is to travel north to Shimla in the Himalayas, then gradually head east and cross the border with Nepal at Banbassa, in order to do the Annapurna Circuit trek near Pokhara. After this I want to return to India by arriving in Varanasi. From here, I want to head west to Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur and anywhere else in Rajastan I like the look of before finishing in Mumbai.

Originally I was planning to push on to Goa and then Kerala before flying back from Bangalore but with nearly a month in Nepal I don't think I'll have time to do everything without rushing!! Do you think this is the case? Or am I worrying too much about it all?

Please let me know your thoughts, many thanks in advance.

Tom.

It all depends on the time you have left after the trip to Nepal.
Is the journey that you need to reach Nepal included in that month?

Maybe it is an idea to skip Go and Mumbai and fly from Rajasthan to Kerala, see here for one of the options.

I'll probably have about 6-7 weeks after Nepal so it might be a bit of a squeeze to fit it all in! I'm thinking I could go to Agra, Jaipur, Jodhpur, Udaipur then fly from Mumbai to Kerela and spend 2-3 weeks there before heading back to the UK!

Thanks for the advice in any case!

So you have something of 3-4 weeks for the leg starting in Varanasi.
One option is Varanasi - Khajuraho - Orchha - Agra - Jaipur -Jodhpur - Udaipur.
