After 3 nights in Varanasi we flew to Delhi and arrived last night. We have today/tonight to get organized and then we depart tomorrow morning for what we expect to be a 14-16 day tour by car and driver through the states of Haryana, Punjab, Himachal Pradesh and a short jaunt into southern Kashmir. We originally considered going further north but the weather is still very cold, rainy and snowy in some areas and we’re not prepared to do this. Our schedule and route is flexible but we anticipate ending our journey through India and heading off to Myanmar/Southeast Asia around February 20th. Below is our intended route barring any unforseen circumstances. It took all day to figure out but here it is in my hand drawn routing. I could have used Google but that wouldn’t be any fun and much less frustrating trying to get it right.
Delhi – Chandigarh – Kufri – Kullu – Manali – Daramshala – Dalhousie – Jammuu – Amritsar. At this point we will either fly from Amritsar to Delhi or just bite the bullet and drive back to Delhi via Chandigarh but we will most likely fly to Delhi, stay at a nice hotel near the airport and then fly to Bangkok the next day. Stay tuned, much more to follow.
