Hello friends,
I'm new arround..but feel at home..and it's great !
I want to consult with you about our travel to India.
I'm now planning our travel ..I think to "go against the human wave"..meaning-to avoid the wave of people going to Goa for ex during Christmas and 31.12 and arrive there lately.
After sitting the whole day in front of my map/books/computer...i think i have our plan:
We'll arrive middle of November with Qatar airlines strait to Bangalore.After recuperating the jet-leg,will continue to Mysore-traveling in Bandipur and Nilgiri Hills-Coimbatore-(Is Kodaikanal/Ooty good time to arrive? probably begging of December)- Madurai--Kanyakumari-Trivandrum-Alleppey-Cochin-Ponnani-Calicut-Cannanore(i want to check possibility to visit the area of the Tibetan people close to Madikeri-continue to Mangalore-Goa-Hampi-Mumbai and back home...
In some places we'll stay 2-5 days and at the others between 1-2-3 weeks.Along the travel we'll pass throw nature reserves too.All our travel will take 3.5 months.
So-what is your opinion? any suggestions? any information about weather that certain place isn't recommended because of the season? any other thoughts you want to share with me-please do..
Have a great day !!

Sometimes there is rain in Mysore and Madurai in December. Twice we had planned to visit Mysore and ended up missing it out of our itinerary as they had heavy rainfall. I think that rain is not unusual in Kerala in November/December due to the retreating monsoon. Went to Varkala one December, it was cloudy and wet so moved further north into Karnataka to get some sunshine!

I think you have a solid plan.
Since you have a lot of places in the coastal area I think you like beaches.
To get some more diversity I suggest you to consider to explore the inland of Karnataka after your stay to Madikeri.

We did that earlier this year and like the magnificent temples of Belur and Halubud as well as the great fort of Chitradurga.
Another high-light was our stay in Banavasi a village in the North of Karnataka. Here you can read the report of our stay over there.
