Great article! I think India is a real challenge for every traveler! It is a very special symbioses of colors, tastes, cultures! Don't you think it is a lifetime experience?

my best regards to the author!

Rajasthan with its famous Maharadja palaces and ancient towns is easy to travel in, even if you don't have a driver. Some of the scams are more rough than in other Asian countries - restaurants poisoning their food to collect a commission from the hospital?!

But the variety and beauty of Rajasthan is unique, it's just one highlight after another.

Kashmir, however, is different. Tension with Pakistan can heat up, and it's generally not a safe place. It's lovely and left a deep impression on me, but you need a local guide at all times.

The time depends on where you go. For much of India, June-September is not a good idea (and in fact that's the case for most of southeast Asia) because of the monsoon. February/March is a good time. But up in the mountains it's cool during summer. I was in Kashmir in February, which is too early and too cold.
On the other hand, I always avoid the high season because everything is too busy then.

India has to many tourist places to travel, if u want to enjoy the nature than there is no better place than Kashmir and also Ooty. Ooty is the queen of hill stations and if there is heaven on earth it is Kashmir. And good time to visit those places is in march and early weeks of April, and in june july its to hot to handle for the tourists and also some foriegn tourists find difficult in dec and jan bcoz its to cold and it makes it more cold for the visitors bcoz in India the houses don't have better arangements for cold.
