Hi everyone, this is my first post here. I'm looking to feed off people's knowledge as I'm a first time traveller to India. There is so much I want to see and do but unfortunately due to my time scale I will not be able to do everything. My proposed itinerary so far goes like this;
Land in Delhi spend 2-3 nights - Agra, 1 night - Ranthambore National Park, 1-2 nights as I'd like to get a couple of safaris in - Jaipur, 2-3 nights - Jodhpur, 2 night's - Camel safari (not decided where yet), 1 night - Mumbai, 3 nights - Goa, 4-5 nights.
After that I'm stuck as to what to do next. I definitely want to go South to do the backwaters and see some of the hill stations but I have no idea where to start. I've considered missing out Goa to give me more time in the South. Most of the traveling will done by train (longer distances I'll do at night) but if I did miss out Goa I'd get a internal flight from Mumbai - Kochi to save time.
Any advice/ opinions on my proposed itinerary would be great. I'm open to idea's if anyone thinks I've missed anything off. At the end the trip the plan is to fly out of Kochi to Sri Lanka so I need to end my trip in that area.
