We will be in the Delhi the last week of December and I very much wish to add a visit out to Kushinagar. What is the best mode of transportation and how much time should I allot for the visit?
I have been told that a train to Gorakhpur is the best way out there. I was thinking of an overnight sleeper train perhaps to save time.
Would it be unwise for an american tourist to undertake this excursion on his own without a guide?
