About Our Destination
Climate
October through March is peak travel time in India. Average temperatures range in the high 80s to low 90s during the day, with evenings in the mid-high 60s.
Currency
India uses the Indian Rupee. At the time of this printing, one U.S. Dollar = 41.22 Indian Rupees. We suggest that you bring a lot of “small” bills (no writing or tears), exchanging just a small amount for Rupees, as most places we visit accept the U.S. dollar.
Languages
English is spoken in most major cities in India. The most widely spoken languages of India are Hindi (or more correctly, Hindustani, which includes Hindi and Urdu), Bengali, Konkani, Marathi, Gujarati, Punjabi, Kashmiri, Rajasthani, Sindhi, Assamese (Asamiya), Maithili and Odia.

Passport and Visa
A valid passport is required for entry into India and should be kept on your person while traveling or in the hotel safe deposit box, never in luggage that is being checked, or taken while walking around the cities we visit. Your passport must be valid 6 months after travel. All visitors to India are required to have a minimum of two blank pages in their passport book, for room to place their entry visa. If there is insufficient space in the passport, entry into the country will be denied.
U.S. citizens entering India need a multiple-entry visa. Visitors to India are required to have a valid passport and an Indian visa prior to arrival to India. Visas are available from the Indian Embassy or Indian Consulate. We encourage you to do this within 6 months of the trip, but no later than 2 months to avoid rush fees.

If you prefer a service to handle your visa, we recommend www.genvisa.com/ to assist with the visa process. If you are not a U.S. citizen, please check with both your country’s consulate and the consulates of the countries we will be visiting to make sure have all documentation you need to go on this trip.

This trip does require a moderate level of mobility, as you must be able to walk from 1-5 miles a day without assistance, climb uneven stairs and some uphill terrain to reach palaces and temples, and uneven and rocky terrain, step over high thresholds, and the ability to get in and out of vehicles that require big steps. Most Indian sites and monuments are rated at moderate difficulty or higher. There is usually little to no assistance for the disabled/handicapped traveler. Your guide can usually let you know at the start of the day what to expect in terms of the number of steps/stairs and amount of walking required.

Wheelchairs and scooters cannot be accommodated on this trip. If you do have limited mobility that requires assistance, you are required to travel with someone who can assist you, and you may not be able to fully participate in all the activities.
