Physical Level: While the tour itself is not very strenuous, please note that it can involve the following: somewhat long days, a good amount of walking, long journeys by private vehical or train, early morning wake-ups and other similarly challenging scenarios.
Subject to Change: Please keep in mind that the above itinerary and activities are subject to change. Travel sometime involves unexpected situations so things might need to be re-arranged at times. However, it is important to remember that travel is all about the journey, and so even the unexpected situations we may face should be treated as part of the overall experience!
Accommodation: Prices are based on the sharing of rooms and single members of the group will typically be put together. We will be using standard hotels that offer comfortable facilities. All rooms will have a private bathroom. While we always do our best to secure as many rooms with two separate beds as possible, however such rooms are not very common in India. Sometime two members of the group might have to share a large bed. But that’s all part of the adventure and we guarantee we’ll have a blast anyway.
(If you wish to have a private room to yourself, the single supplement cost is $600 USD.)
