Following on from the discussions at http://www.aussiestockforums.com/for...ead.php?t=3807 for the visit to Australia of Melanie from Germany...
I have copied my post from another Forum where I do some volunteer work http://forum.equis.com/viewtopic.php?t=4129 which also has a lot of Indian members... Maybe some ASF members have some experiences to share?
At the end of this year, my girlfriend and I intend visiting India. On this visit we intend seeing the Noth-West of India, the region bounded by Mumbai, Agra and Amritsa. We will 'do' some more on another journey, later. We will be spending about two months (she wants to stay for three months) in the area.
For our friends in India:
What is worth seeing?
What are some of the good things to do?
We will be doing some of the regular 'tourist' activities, but what else should we do when we are there?
What is worth seeing, that tourists don't normally get to see?
Where do you go on holidays in you own country?
What are the better ways, not only to get around, but to see the country?
What local activities/festivals are on during the period November to February in the region?
What information can you give us that is not in the "Lonely Planet Guide"?
For the rest who may have some Indian adventure stories of their own:
Not recommended activities?
What to watch out for?
Please tell your stories...
We will be (predominately) backpacking, but exploiting luxury options when we get the chance!
We have a couple of train journeys planned but that's about all at the moment. We have about six months to plan our travels, so whatever information we get will be appreciated.
