When is the best time to visit?
India is an enormous country with diverse weather patterns, but usually the best time to travel to India is from October to March. Learn more
Where to go in India?
If strapped for time or visiting India for the first time, travelers usually opt to explore the Golden Triangle, the cultural hubs of Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur. Visitors who want a less traditional vacation should consider the temples of North and Central India, the Goan beaches of the south, and the mountains and outdoor paradise near the Kullu Valley or Rishikesh. Balance the hustle and bustle of the big cities with time spent in the countryside away from the crowds. Learn more
How many days do I need?
2 weeks is the bare minimum to spend in India, but if possible, travelers should budget about a month to see the country, perhaps broken up into several visits. Learn more

Ten days in India is enough to go beyond the highlights of one region, enjoying off-the-beaten-path sites or remote locales that wouldn't be possible with a shorter trip. Pair a classic Golden Triangle Tour—including a sunrise Taj Mahal visit—with two days in Ranthambore National Park, a protected tiger sanctuary. Or, experience the best of Rajasthan, from the Golden City of Jaisalmer to the blue houses of Jodhpur. Other options include a guided hiking trip in Kerala, and a multi-country tour that crosses the Himalaya into Nepal.
With two weeks to explore India, you can take your time and get to know more of the country. Visit the Golden Triangle and relax on Kerala's beaches, or opt for a cultural itinerary that includes some of India's most intricately-carved temples. For a more active vacation, spend two weeks cycling through Karnataka and Kerala, or combine your trip to India with a visit to Nepal to see temples, palaces, and views of the Himalaya.
With only a week to visit India, maximize your time by sticking to a single region. Opt for a tour of the Golden Triangle—New Delhi, Agra, and Jaipur—or take in the highlights of Rajasthan. If you're looking to relax, head to the beachs of Kerala. Active travelers will love a bike tour through Karnataka, with stops at hills stations and national parks. And if you're looking for a cultural experience, head into the Himalayas to see monasteries and temples in Ladakh.

Golden Triangle India - 4 day tour · India - Jan 2 - Jan 6, 2020
KimKim was great to work with to organize this tour. Priya, our local specialist was very helpful. Because of the time difference, it usually took 1 day to respond. My planning of this trip was revised (by me) many times, and Priya managed all of the changes easily. All of our transportation, accommodations, and tours was seamless. The guides were knowledgable and helpful. I most appreciated our driver, Puran. He was with us from the moment we arrived in Delhi, until we departed Delhi. ... read more
