Hey folks, Hope you can help me. I'm planning to spend a few months in India and would appreciate some help with an itinerary and how long to spend where. I'll be there from mid-November to around mid-March. I'm flying into Trivandrum and doing a tour of South India that finishes in Goa. From there on I'm on my own!!!

* How long should I spend in Goa?
* I plan to take the train from there to Mumbai. How long would it be worth staying in Mumbai? (baring in mind I'm big into Bollywood!).
* Will fly Mumbai - Delhi.
* Really want to see the North (Dharmsala, Shimla, Amritsar). Can someone suggest a route and timings plus any advice about transport? Also, will it be terribly cold in Jan/Feb?
* Hope to cross the border into Pakistan, then ultimately return back to Delhi.

Any help greatly appreciated. I'm a lone female traveller and getting increasingly scared about my solo adventure!!! (by the way, have already done the usual 'tourist' route of Agra, Jaipur, Varanasi and some of Rajasthan. so not looking to go back there this time round). THANK YOU!!

4 months is long enough that you dont need an itinerary. Just fly in to Trivandrum and then decide were you want to go next. I dont think there is anyone here who can tell you how long you would enjoy Goa, some stay a few days, others a few months. I am in the "a few months" category"

I totally agree with Anders. All you need is a vague idea of what you want to experience, and the guts to go with the flow.

I usually plan my trips thoroughly, and never follow the plans. I think I do it just to hold on to the good feeling of knowing I'm going.

And I'm in the "not at all"-category.
