Hey all, I´m planning a 2 week trip throughout India from Kolkatta to Mumbai. I have friends in 3 of 4 cities (actually Indian friends from Berlin) who go back to India to see family and friends. I thought this would be a perfect chance to experience India as and with locals and travel a couple of places. I don't have an exact schedule, yet. But this is how it roughly looks: (all by train - I think  ;-) Starting mid-Jan in Kolkatta Heading over to Nagpur Next Jalna And ending the trip in Mumbai I have friends living in all cities except Mumbai, so always some locals to connect with. I would like to go with the flow and don't follow a too strict schedule to also give room visiting placed outside the core route (parks, temples, anything.. really). If you feel this is the right trip for you, hit me up and join!

Kolkata

Day 1-5

As the former capital of British India, Kolkata retains a feast of colonial-era architecture contrasting starkly with marginalized urban areas and dynamic new-town suburbs with their air-conditioned shopping malls. Kolkata is the ideal place to experience the mild yet complex tang of Bengali cuisine. Friendlier than India’s other metropolises, this is a city you ‘feel’ more than simply visit.

Nagpur

Day 5-8

Way off the main tourist routes, the isolated city of Nagpur holds the distinction of being the dead geographical centre of India. It lacks must-see sights but is an important gateway to several reserves and parks including Tadoba-Andhari Tiger Reserve and Pench National Park. It’s also close to the temples of Ramtek and the ashrams of Sevagram. Summer is the best time to taste the city’s famous oranges, but the trade-off is unbearable heat.

Jalna

Day 8-11

The smallest of the 3 cities Jalna offers a peek into local Indian way of living.

Mumbai

Day 11-15

If Mumbai is your introduction to India, prepare yourself. The city isn’t a threatening place but its furious energy, limited (but improving) public transport and punishing pollution make it challenging for visitors. The heart of the city contains some of the grandest colonial-era architecture on the planet, but explore a little more and you’ll uncover unique bazaars, hidden temples, hipster enclaves and India’s premier restaurants and nightlife.
