What's the best way to get from Udaipur to Orchha to Khajuraho to Varanasi to Amritsar?

I realize that this may see the most direct route via map, but there may be a better way to between the cities another way. Our current itinerary:

Delhi (3 days)

Agra (3 days), stop in Fatehpur Sikri and Abhaneri on the way to Jaipur

Jaipur (3 days)

Jodhpur (3 days)

Udaipur (3 days)

Orchha (2 Days)

Khajuraho (2 Days)

Varanasi (2 Days)

Amritsar (3 days)

TBD (3 days)

Any advice is appreciated!

We wanted a more leisurely experience and I heard that traveling in India can be overwhelming. Also, we baked in an extra day for Jaipur, Jodhpur, and Udaipur because it takes 5+ hours to get to each place and sometimes things change. Do you think it's time wasted if we do this? We are spending a month in India after all and didn't want to feel like we were running from place to place every other day.

Also, is Agra the only efficient way to get to Orccha/Khajuraho/Varanasi ?

For a leisurely experience,your plans are good, and you are right most of the drives would be more than 6 hours.

Enjoy the trip.

2 days enough for each places. like Jaipur, Agra, Jodhpur, Udaipur. but i will advise you to reduce to stay in Orccha. when you are coming from Khajuraho to Agra then you can stay one night. there is only you can see Orccha Fort and One night you can stay in Gawalior.

Someone pointed out that the way I am counting days is not clear. I guess I should have said 3 nights in Jaipur/Jodhpur/Udadipur. This includes travel time so closer to 2.5 days of actual visiting time. This means for Orchha/Khajuraho/Varanasi it's just 1 day in each place to see everything.

Also, I would love advice on the best way to get to these places, particularly the Orchha/Khajuraho region. It seems that a train from Agra or flying from Delhi are the best ways, but it would require us to backtrack from Udaipur to Agra/Delhi and add more travel time. I was hoping to find a more direct route.
