My son is joining me in the middle of December flying into Delhi He was hoping we could go to Nepal together as well as Varanasi. Is this plan feasible for 16 day trip?


Delhi
Agra - just to see the TM
Varanasi
Katmandu
Back to Delhi for him to fly home. (Jan 4)

Thanks, Its good to have an idea about how much time is needed in each place. I am concerned about how much travel time would be involved between Varanasi - Katmandu and then Katmandu- back to Delhi.
Anyone know?

I've never done it but I think you may be looking at a couple of days travel each way!

I don't know and haven't been there but I hear Kathmandu without any trekking in Nepal is just -- well, Kathmandu like. Think travellers and pancakes and stuff, it's supposed to be really nice mind you but with the effort of getting there and all for such a short period...

Maybe your initial idea of Varanasi/Rajasthan wasn't so bad (that was you right?)

I agree I think what your contemplating may well be a bit strenious for 16 days and mountain roads in December can be dicey!. Leave Katmandu until another time!!
Think about Orcha, Bharatpur, Chitrakoot, Bundi, not all of them of course just a selection of places you could see after Varanasi!! Bring a fleece, you'll need it in December!

I figured it would be too much...I'm volunteering for Art Refuge in Katmandu for a couple of months before I meet up with Finn, (my son) He was hoping to see where I was working.. but it sounds like way too much. Back to the Varanasi vs. Rajasthan plan. .... how hot does it get in Rajasthan in December?

Thanks all you...

Cold enough to bring a sweater and a blanket for the nights/early mornings, depends on early Dec. vs. late Dec. too but I would just in case. Otherwise yr average hot and/or pleasurable I'd say.

You could have your son fly out to Kathmandu if that's where you're at of course and do some stuff there for two weeks.

It isn't hot in Dec. Very nice weather, sunny and warm about 70F. But you will need a fleece sometimes even in the day. Even warmer clothes for night 50F . Especially if you take an overnight train, be sure to rent bedding/blankets at the train station--unless you go first class which provides the blankets. We didn't and it was unbearably cold. It was our first trip without sleeping bags and we just forgot how cold it can get at night in the winter in India.
