Dear IMers,

I am currently plotting the first bit of this summer's 7.5 week trip to North India.

I arrive in Delhi very early on 28 June, and on 11 July I'll start a two week trip through Rajasthan (about which I've already asked a million questions, and the itinerary for which has been much improved by IM advice).

Between that time, I plan to visit the Valley of the Flowers. That looks like:
Day 1: train to Haridwar (and maybe on to Rishikesh immediately?)
Day 2: Spend the day in Rishikesh, maybe?
Day 3: Bus to to Govindgat.
Day 4: Trek to Ghangria
Days 5-7: Visiting VoF and Hemkund Sahib (maybe make this a short day in VoF and trek back to Govindghat?)
Day 8: Bus to Rishikesh
Day 9: Train to Delhi/train out of Delhi

Does the above seem right?

Following this itinerary, that leaves me 4-5 days before I leave for Rajasthan leg. Now, it seems that the later I can visit the VoF, the better, so that would tentatively be 7-9 July.

All of this is a long-winded way of getting to my actual question:I'll have 3-4 days open--I am interested in being in nature and taking some pleasant day treks and eating local food. Is Rishikesh the place for me? Mussorie? Someplace I can stop in between Rishikesh and Govindghat? Nainital seems beautiful, but I don't want to spend all my time traveling from place to place.

My other option is to simply go to Agra for a couple of days before heading to Haridwar, because otherwise I won't fit it in (I've been before, so I don't "need" to go again).

Thanks in advance,
