Golden triangle india tours
The optimum time to visit the Golden triangle
is in February and March. From April onwards, the Thermometer can rise to
temperatures of over 40 degrees Celsius. In December and January, on the other
hand, it may still be very cold in some cases. In the summer months of July and
August monsoon season prevails. In October and December, the climate is
suitable for travel.
Always Indian holidays consider in the choice
of travel time. We were, for example, during Holi in India, which is of
course very exciting on the one hand, but on the other hand, it can lead to
restrictions. We will also write our article on our Blog.
Individually or organized
Before a trip to India, you will quickly
ask yourself the question, whether you travel on your own or get help when
organizing. Both of these, Of course, have advantages and disadvantages.
We didn’t want to be completely alone on our 5
days trip in india, so we decided to travel to India with long-distance
travel. Experience-long distance travel has supported us in the organization of
our transports and has taken over the booking of train tickets, private
transports, and accommodation.
So we had an individual trip for two but were
allowed to enjoy some comfort. Upon arrival in Delhi, we received all documents
from an employee of the partner agency. This is, of course, practical because
we had to take care of nothing more on the ground.
Delhi Agra Jaipur
A journey through the golden triangle leads to
the three Highlights in northern India. In principle, you only have to think
about which direction you want to travel.
Most start their journey in Delhi. Although the
city can be quite over-demanding, we were able to acclimatize well there. We
stayed only two nights and would recommend you three nights.
Agra / Taj Mahal
From Delhi, we took the train to Agra to visit
the Taj Mahal. The city itself has not been very enthusiastic about us, but
for the Taj Mahal, it is worth the trip of course. With two nights you get out
well in time, three are probably better.
From Agra, it is about a five-hour drive to
Jaipur-also known as “Pink City“. On the way, you should stop
at Fatehpur Sikri. Plan at least two to three hours. In Jaipur itself, we
stayed two nights. This was sufficient for us, but who likes it comfortable,
should stay three nights.
What is golden triangle in india
The most comfortable traveling with a private
driver. You can stop when you want, and be very flexible. Private drivers
usually keep everyone at the same resting place – the food there is overpriced
and usually only mediocre. We were impressed by the train journey to Agra
– we enjoyed seeing the scenery passing by. Alternatively, you can of course
also change to public buses – but that was us then honestly for our first India
trip a bit too adventurous. The organization and booking of the transports
have been carried out for us long-distance travel 5 days trip in india.
We usually stopped a motorized rickshaw during
transport within the cities. We paid about 50 Indian rupees depending on the
length of the route. Sometimes we also used bike rickshaw. In Delhi, we drove
by Metro. This is in principle very simple and cheap: the Tickets are purchased
at the ticket desk before commencing, the price per ride is about 10 rupees.
However, you usually still have to walk quite long distances to reach the final
destination. For some more routes, the Taxi is a suitable solution.
The currency in India in Indian rupees. There
are many ATMs, but we have experienced that they often do not work. We also had
a little cash (Euro) with it, which we did not regret. Changing from Euro to
Indian rupees is easily possible in many Hotels. The course is often not the
Credit cards are accepted in larger Restaurants
and Hotels almost everywhere. India is a very cheap destination. The
prices forfood and accommodation are listed in the respective chapters.
Food and Drink in India
Food in northern India
and Rajasthan is phenomenal. Believe us: you will love it! If you don’t like to
eat hot, you should announce this when ordering, because India is known for its
spicy dishes. For vegetarians and Vegans, India is a Paradise: all vegetarian
and mostly vegan food.
Our favorite dish was Shahi Paneer.
Paneer is a type of cream cheese that comes on the table in various variations.
The Shahi Paneer, which is prepared in an incredibly delicious and creamy
tomato sauce. Also, a Highlight is, of course, the countless dishes with Dal, so
lentils. Dal Makhani is typical of the North and damn tasty. Among the
different Curries, it is best to order a classic or a garlic-Naan bread and
some rice. Also highly recommended is a so-called Thali: in many small bowls,
you get a variety of dishes, plus some rice and bread.
Security in India
At first, we were very skeptical. The many
negative headlines about India have caused us a little abdominal pain. We can
reassure you: with the right amount of caution, India is not a dangerous
In the evening we tried not to walk alone
through the streets 5 days trip in india. Instead, we took a Taxi for
the route. As far as clothing is concerned, Kathi has dressed all the way
covered. There were hardly any disturbing looks of men. It is best to always
have a large cloth that you can lay over your shoulders if necessary.
