Hello all,

I wanted to know the feasibility of a trip to lakshadweep during the first week of june.

is it possible to even go there at that time?
if so, how much would it cost? we have around Rs8000 each and wanted to spend a few days there.
is it possible?
if yes, plz do advice on how to go about doing it.

Any help is appreciated,

I think such a trip might be difficult partly due to your budget and partly due to the weather. Depending on which island you want to visit the ferry costs can be between Rs5000-Rs10000 return leaving very lttle of your budget left for accommodation. As it is monsoon season some of the resorts will be closed in June and ferry journeys wil be subject to weather conditions. Flights to Agatti are very expensive and way over your budget. To get more information check out the Lakshadweep Government website or the SPORTS website.

Not a good time

Lakswadweep is tough(read impossible) on a show string budget.
The govt. maintained website gives you a good idea regarding the place.

The Andamans will turn out cheaper. But, June is not a good time to there either.

Sorry for the disappointment.
