India in March and April??

Jump to last reply

Despite my many misgivings regarding visiting a country with an appalling track record of its treatment of women, we are considering a visit to India as part of our trip next year to Asia\Australasia . I will possibly assuage my conscience by carrying out some voluntary work with women’s NGO whilst there!

I have acquired a Rough Guide to India from the library and skimmed through it and, based on that very quick read, would probably opt for a month or two combining their suggested itineraries to “the Land of Kings and The Golden Triangle” Basically Dehli, Agra, Jaipur, Pushkar, Udaipur Jaislamer etc..

My main concern is that the only time it will probably work for us is in March/April. From what I gather from other threads here, March is ok but April may be way too hot. We are used to the heat but confess last year in Central Vietnam in temps of 35c plus, we found ourselves cutting back on the sightseeing in favour of the pool. It was just a little too hot.

I could really do with some help in deciding whether this is a viable proposition for us or not.

Any of you old India hands, have any experience of travelling at that time of year in the region? Is it really too hot?

Also, how easy/difficult is it to travel around India on a DIY/make it up as we go basis?

Would further north towards the Himalaya region, shimla etc be ok weather wise in say June - July?

Any thoughts, opinions or insights would be much appreciated
