Traveltips about travel time, clothing and valuable about India
Because of its size it is impossible to get to know the entire India during one trip.
Therefore we focus with our traveltips on Rajasthan, the state with the most famous sights and also Prakashs homestate.
The best time to travel
in Rajasthan is from October to March. Later the temperatures rise up until May to about 40º C to 50ºC.
In June begins monsoon season and the rain brings some of the long expected cooling. This will last sometimes until August/September.
on a trip in India should be light cotton.
The ladies should consider to wear a longer blouse or sweater,reaching close to the hips and covering the shoulders. Depending on the season you need a warm jacket since the temperatures in Rajasthan can drop considerably after sunset. Even during the day a light sweater is usually necessary in December and January.
Clothes can be casual but should be neat. Indians are generally conservative in their clothing, too casual or sloppy would not be appreciated.
The first aid kit
for India should include something to treat fever and diarrhea, possibly also the usual patches and skin-disinfection in case of a small wound.
Vaccinations are not mandatory for India, but it is recommended to have a consultation with your family doctor before your trip.
Malaria is very rare in North India, but may occur in rare cases.
