7 weeks India/Sri Lanka Jan/Feb - just starting!

Jump to last reply

I've been reading all the fabulously interesting trip reports here on fodors re India and Sri Lanka.
As retired folk we're now in habit of taking off from cold NE for Jan/Feb and travelling independently. Always have a difficult time narrowing down/deciding on next trip. A great problem to have of course. And always seem to get a late start!! After looking at weather conditions etc for touring/seeing animals/birds in Jan/Feb, we're leaning toward India/Sri Lanka - or one or the other. We've got about 7 weeks. Budget wise we tend to travel mid to lower range ( a long trip after all!) - though are game for a splurge or two along the way, and we are definitely of the stay at least 3 nights at each location school.

Would love any and all feedback to help me get off the dime and start planning. Guess some first qs might be folk's experience/advice re airports to fly in/out of and must sees. No miles to use this trip sadly. . . . Think we'll try for a good mix of culture and nature. Not big beach people - though one stop might be fun.

Have read recs for a few in country travel agents - eg. boutique sri lanka and castle and king.
Wondering if they deal only at the uppermost brackets or will help plan with moderate budget.
