Mid-September Udaipur/Varanasi/Agra Itinerary

Jump to last reply

Getting close to booking our first trip to India - a birthday pilgrimage and our first travel adventure as empty nesters. We've each been to 5-8 Asian countries (different ones, often for work), and we've tried to do one exotic trip each year with the kids. We have ten nights on the ground in mid-September...unfortunately no way to go later in the season or to extend the trip. Traveling from the west coast of the US. There is a slight chance that another couple might choose to join us once we finalize the itinerary.

We're interested in culture, photography, music, art, dance, walking, yoga, cooking lessons, dining and shopping, probably not dozens of forts and temples. We intended to go more off the beaten track and stay longer in each place. Then once we decided that Varanasi was a priority, we ended up with a more standard tourist route. Great off season deals on all hotels - Opinions and suggestions appreciated.

Day 1 - arrive late - hotel near Mumbai airport
Day 2, 3, 4, 5 - fly to Udaipur - 4 nights Devi Garh, hikes, yoga, relax, village walks, excursion to Ranakpur, sightseeing, shopping and cooking lesson in Udaipur
Day 6, 7 - fly to Varanasi - 2 nights Suryauday Haveli
Day 8 - fly to Khajuraho - hotel TBD
Day 9,10 - driver to Jhansi via Orchha, pm train to Agra - Amarvilas, Taj + fort
Day 11 - morning train to Delhi, shop, sightsee with guide, dinner, late-night flight
