8.5 Days in India - Insane?

Jump to last reply

I have until tomorrow to book two AA FF business tickets for a mid-October journey/birthday celebration that would give us just 8 1/2 days on the ground in India (11 days total travel). We're both very eager to go (okay, I'm obsessed) but, sadly, we cannot take six weeks off like some of you. And although Mr. Crosscheck and I both travel often on shorter business trips to distant places, we fear that eight days won't cut it for the sub-continent.

We would fly in and out of Delhi limit our journey to three destinations:

1 night Delhi
1 night Agra
3 nights Varanasi
3 nights cool rural retreat TBD
+ 1 Delhi shopping day before midnight departure

Opinions appreciated. I have a feeling you're all going to say that we should wait...but it's very difficult for us to get extended periods of time off during India's travel season.
