30+ days in India itinerary

Jump to last reply

This will be my first REAL time in India. (I previously visited Mumbai on business but I never really got to see India except for a restaurant and the airport)

I am from the states, but I assure you I am a hardy traveler and am always prepared for the worst. I am planning on visiting in January-February, so I know that the north will be cooler, and am prepared for that as well.

Here is my itinerary: All travelling is planned by train except from hyderabad to kolkata (I'm not crazy!). Anytime it says "travel" I am devoting a full day of travelling, despite journeys maybe only being 6-8 hours, since this is is India, after all.

Day 1 - Fly into Mumbai
Day 2- Mumbai
Day 3 - Mumbai
Day 4 - Travel to Goa
Day 5- Goa
Day 6- Goa
Day 7- Goa
Day 8- Goa
Day 9- Travel to Hospet/Hampi
Day 10- Hampi
Day 11- Hampi
Day 12- Travel to Hyderabad
Day 13- Hyderabad
Day 14- Travel (BY PLANE) to Kolkata
Day 15- Kolkata
Day 16- Kolkata
Day 17- Kolkata
Day 18- Travel to Varanasi
Day 19- Varanasi
Day 20- Varanasi
Day 21- Travel to Agra
Day 22- Agra
Day 23- Agra
Day 24- Travel to Delhi
Day 25- Delhi
Day 26- Delhi
Day 27- Travel to Jaipur
Day 28 - Jaipur
Day 29 - Jaipur
Day 30 - Travel to Udaipur
Day 31 - Udaipur
Day 32 - Udaipur
Day 33- Travel to Mumbai
Day 34-36 Mumbai, fly back to the states.

Is this reasonable? Is this too much to pack into one trip? I figure India is one of those countries I should see while I'm still young, rather than wait till I'm older and have it be more taxing to my body. Are there some places I could cut short? TOo many days in Calcutta? To few days in Varanasi? Any help is greatly appreciated!
