Was hoping for some advice. We will be in Northern India from July 6th - 27th. (yes, are aware of the heat, have been there close to this time before, although for briefer duration). We plan to spend 2/3 of the time in Rajasthan, 1/3 Punjab and Kashmir. I'm debating about what order to do it in. My first thougth was to try to do Rajasthan first, before heavier rains hit, then go up to Kashmir, where it will warm up. But now i've been reading on here that some of the Rajathan destinations might be better after getting some rain (dried up lakes). So i'm not sure. Any advice? We (brother and I) are pretty hardy... can handle any elements i'd say.

Hi tknull,
While I haven't been in those areas in July, I would prefer to see Rajasthan when it was wetter, has a better look to it, the Punjab is much the same all year round as there is plenty of water there in comparison and the rice and wheat fields will be getting ready for planting during the wet. Kashmir I would do last to freshen up after the plains.
