Hi Friends.

I am planning a family trip to Haridwar, Rishikesh, Nainital and Jim Corbett National Park in December 2010. The complete itinerary is not fixed yet but it would be a 10 days trip. We will start from Pune on around 10th Dec and reach Delhi by next day. After a days stay we will reach Haridwar. Then we will move on to Rishikesh and then to Nainital. From Nainital we want to visit Jim Corbett as well.

Now I am bit unaware of some facts which will help me to plan this trip in a full fledged way. Like the weather, transportation from Delhi and other places , etc. I would like to know the most convenient way to reach Haridwar from Delhi. If its train, then is it necessary to reserve it from now ? Then from Haridwar how to reach Rishikesh ? How will be the idea to include Auli in my itinerary and how to reach there ? Then how to reach Nainital ? From Nainital which places are must visit Raanikhet and all ? Then how to plan for Jim Corbett ? Is a stay in the National Park a good idea ?

Long list of questions .. .. but these are basic stuffs required to plan my trip better.

Also it would be great if someone could provide me accommodation details during December. Also posts suggesting changes in the itinerary are most welcomed

Thanks in advance.

Sumeet_CH, Welcome to IndiaMike.

Delhi - Haridwar - best in 4041 Mussorie Express, saves you both hotel charges and time.

Haridwar - Rishikesh - Best & regular are 3 wheelers, else there are buses too.

For going to Nanintal you'll have to come back to Haridwar for train (4120 DDN-KGM Exp)

Nanital - Corbett - May do on a day trip. Take a taxi and then ask him to drop you at Haldwani/Kathgodam railway staion from where you can take train back to Delhi.

Prebook all trains.
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Thanks a lot delhiwala.

Thanks for the valuable info Delhiwala. As per your suggestions I will be booking all the tickets in advance. But 1 thing 1 wouldto know is the climate of these region during mid - end December. Due to some problems I had to postpone the trip by 7-10 days. So I would be reaching Haridwar by 18 - 20 Dec. Then will start for Nainital by 23-24 Dec. I am quite sure this will be a very cool period. But I dont want any problems for my parents because of this chilly climate. Also it would be Christmas time. So accommodation is what is worrying me.

Also I would like to have some suggestions to visit Auli. Whats the place like in Dec and how to reach there ? I think it would be easy to reach Auli from Rishikesh. But is a one day return sufficient / possible ?
