How to do this

Jump to last reply

I've made one 12 day trip to Indian and saw the most popular and famous sights. My favorite stop was at the temple complex in Khajuraho.

I'd like to return and concentrate on just two things, 1) ancient indigenous architecture -- temples and palaces, and 2) the southern mountain range(s) (whatever they are).

Is it possible to hire a car and driver to take an extended trip going from site to site? I had in mind something like driving to the town nearest a sight, spending the night at a hotel there, seeing the sight the next morning, and then driving on to the next town and hotel. In some cases the drive might be so long that I'd have to spend two nights at some places.

And then for the mountains, I'd probably want to spend a couple of nights at a lodge in or near a national park, and tour the park. But also I'd like to do some extensive driving, just driving (or should I say riding) over and through the mountains to see some vistas.

Finally I don't want to miss any must sees in southern India, if there are any.

Is this doable? How expensive are private cars/drivers?
