Hello everyone,

I'm from Turkey/Istanbul. I'm planning the trip in india for 20 days in December.

This is my route:
Any advice?
Are 20 days enough?
How should I travel between the city\'s by plane/train/bus?
What is the best/not so expensive/safety/comfortable way?

İstanbul to Kathmandu: plane (400 euro ) / for 3 days

Katmandu to Varanasi: plane (182 dolar) / for staying 2 days

Varanasi to Delhi: (planes price is about 55 dolar)/ for 1 days

Delhi to Agra: train / for daily taj mahal tour (this tour price is 85 dolar, all inclusive)

Delhi to Dharamsala: bus (12 dolar) / for staying 3 days

Dharamsala to Haridwar: bus (5 dolar)/ for staying 2 days

Haridwar to Rishikesh: bus (5 dolar) / for staying 5 days

Rishikesh to Delhi: taxi (50 dolar) / for back to Istanbul

Thanks a lot already

I would suggest fly between Varanasi and Delhi if you can, else train.

Keep 3 days for Delhi sometime.

Alternate to going all the way to Dharamsala from Delhi: go beyond Rishikesh into Garhwal. But if you want Dharamsla for a couple of days instead, you can still do it.

The whole trip is slightly rushed, but manageable. Looks good.

PS: Take a train back from Haridwar to Delhi instead of the taxi (Rishikesh haridwar is 30 odd kilometers)

And, welcome to indiamike.
