Itinerary help/suggestions?


I am planning my 14D and 14N excursion to India in October. Plane tickets are bought! I know that it is a short period of time, but I wanted to see what the experts think about this itinerary. I really wanted to do Orchaa and Khajuraho (I want to see the waterfalls!) and Varanasi, but some tour guides are suggesting I cut them out. Thoughts? Also, how bad are the overnight trains? I am a solo female traveler. Thanks!

Thanks for your reply. The flight from Khajuraho to Varanasi is too expensive. Otherwise, that would work out perfectly.

But it’s still worth to pay high airfare for KhajurahoVaranasi because you are visiting Udaipur by suggested itinerary which is MUST visit destination in Rajasthan and Khajuraho – Varanasi flight can be taken as instead of your Jodhpur – Delhi flight,

Hi, thanks for your message, I have replied to it. I'd be uncomfortable going to Khajuraho solo. Guides for the temple are all male.
