Hi Everyone...

I had been traveling Nepal for a while and will be venturing into India next week via Gorakpur and I am planning to visit Varanasi, Khajurao, Orcha, Agra before touch down to Delhi... I was just thinking if i can get advice from the locals in these cities about tourist places and cheap accommodations..or may be we can share a coffee or drink... My tentative plan is

23rd-27th Jan >> Varanasi
28th-30th Jan >> Khajurao
31st-2nd Feb >> Orchha
3rd-4th Feb >> Agra

Please reply back if anyone willing to offer a couch during these days... it would be a great help...

I will be glad to have to as my guest in Agra for those days... Will make you extend you stay in Agra... It's full of unknown and incredible attractions....

And I think Vijay can help you out getting something in Varanasi... There are plenty of cheaper accommodation in Khajurao and Orchha ( 200 INR per night)....

look forward to see you soon

One of my friend used to stay in Allahabad but now he is transferred to some other city. I don't have any connection who can host you in Allahabad... Are you going to attend Kumbh Mela ?

Regards

My wife and I, along with another couple, will be travelling in India next January and February. It is our first time, however, our friends have been to India many times in recent years. We are lucky to have them as guides. We have a number of stops planned. Our wives will arrive first for a yoga workshop in Pune. My friend, Colin, and I will arrive later in Delhi, where we are to meet the women. Among other stops we will attend the International Writers Festival in Jaipur and plan to spend time in Varanasi. One stop we would like to make is Allahabad during the Kumbh Mela. We expect to be there Feb 5, 6, 7. We have not been able to find any accommodations, other than rooms for $300/night, rather rich for our blood. Can anybody help us find a place to stay?
