I'm gonna be in Vrindavan for Holi in 2016 and was wondering if there's any interest in a meet up. I'm travelling with my girlfriend and am a little apprehensive about walking to the temples, I know how rowdy Holi can get! Would be great to go as a group with like minded people. We're both into photography so if there's any photographers get in touch and we can get together. Maybe meet a day or two ahead before it gets too hectic (I know they celebrate Holi for weeks) and arrange a plan?

... and from monkeys...

Holi at Vrindavan is safer than other place. Generally you will not find hooliganism there.

You will find a lot many foreigners there with whom you may make a group...

Haha thanks Ananda! I'm going to use a rain sleeve and cling film!

Prakaant thanks for that, I actually feel a bit better now. We will be with an Indian friend so I'm not too worried. Would be nice to buy a few guys on here a beer, this site has been really helpful!

I'll be around the area on holi and days prior. My flight departures 3am the next day, so I'll be heading out that night.
Shoot me a message if you'd like to meet up. I'll send you my Facebook or something
No problem

My wife and I are coming as well for Holi. We would love to meet up. We arrive in Delhi late on the 20th and leave early the 24th. What are your plans for the 21-23? What are some ideas for those days on what to do? We for sure want to go to Agra.

Hi everyone,

I am single female traveler, 31 year old.
I will be in Vrindavan on March 23-25 for Holi, please let me know if you would like to meet and spend some time together as I am a bit concerned it might be very hectic in cities during Holi No pressure for sure, just if you are similar age or do need a company

Thanks,
Vaida

Excellent, would be good to meet a few of you. We're coming from Varanasi and will hopefully be in Vrindavan for the 21st. If we could meet up that evening and arrange a safe place to meet before heading to mathura I think it would best. We'll have a driver who will have a bit of local knowledge so that should help.

That sounds crazy to me. You will be covered in color, some of which does not wash off, and heading to the airport. You will be lucky just to get a taxi in Vrindavan, taking you to the airport in time.

I suppose this is an international flight. They might not even let you on the plane with all this color on you.
