      Suggestions for itinerary McLeod Ganj / Varanasi / Bhod Gaya / other stops on the way to Nepal?

      India Jul 2, 2016 at 9:40 PM

      Hi there!

      I am in McLeod and had a change of heart concerning my travel plans (no volunteering right now), so now I am researching other options. I basically flew into Dharamsala and haven't moved around much in India yet, so I'm looking for a simple way of transport and avoid confusing huge cities if possible .

      I'd love to see buddhist pilgrimage sites such as Varanasi and Bodh Gaya (plus any other suggestions?), and was also thinking about spending some time in Rishikesh doing Yoga.

      I have like another 10 weeks before I want to go to Nepal (probably overland?). I am not too keen of checking must see sights off my list and am perfectly fine staying in one place for a few weeks at a time, doing random courses etc.

      So i was looking into how to get around and what order makes the most sense, but I'm getting more and more confused. It seems like I have to go through Delhi no matter what mode of transportation i choose?

      I'd love to get your ideas - it seems to me like this is a no-brainer for seasoned travellers, isn't it? 

      Cheers ianchen

      Punjab itinerary

      State of Punjab Jul 4, 2016 at 12:47 PM

      We are planning a trip in Punjab, but I am not sure it will be interesting enough for foreigners. we are a couple over 50's and we have been many times in India.
      our planning is Amritsar - Bhatinda - Kapurthala - Jalandhar or Patiala - Anadpur Sahib - Chandigarh.
      We suppose the best is to rent a car with driver for all itinerary, starting in Amritsar.
      Does anyone know this area? because we couldn't find much information in the classic guides.
      I will appreciate a lot if some know a reliable agency in Amritsar to make the planning.
      Another idea is going to Manali, but the trip is too long
