Cannot comment on route you can take to avoid Delhi and not take Jaipur Agra route as well. If you do take it, Here is how I would suggest, Jaipur onwards:Just a quick update: Had a bereavement in the family and was out of BCMT for quite some time. Things have settled down now and am picking off where i left off. Seems like the trip to UK during the 2nd fortnight of March is still on. With inputs from members have shortlisted the following locations, till now (in no particular order)
More could emerge. As i mentioned, we would drive down (up?) from A'Bad. Would like to avoid Delhi and have gone on the A'Bad-Udaipur-Jaipur-Agra route u(m)pteen times and would like to use a new route and take the opportunity to see new attractions. Possibilities are A'Bad-Jodhpur-Bikaner-Kurukshetra and then UK or A'Bad-Jodhpur-Patiala and then onward to UK or what else?
- Mayawati Ashram
- Jim Corbett Park
Secondly, what other places to see in UK? We like to stay in off the beaten path places ( but no trek requirement and those accessible by road), nice, clean home stays preferred. I note that many have opined that KMVNL properties are quite good now, having been revamped/refurbished.
Lastly, what should be the route to follow with UK given the above.
ps: Mid march may not be possible for Badrinath/Kedarnath, is it?
Thanks VJ. Why not the other way around? Enter from Haridwar and exit from Tanakpur? Just curious.Cannot comment on route you can take to avoid Delhi and not take Jaipur Agra route as well. If you do take it, Here is how I would suggest, Jaipur onwards:
Jaipur - Bharatpur (Bird Sanctuary) - Agra - Bareilly - Khatima - Tanakpur (Enter UK from Tanakpur Side).
Tanakpur - Mayawati Ashram - Pithoragarh
Pithoragarh - Munsiyari
Munsiyari - Chaukori
Chaukrori - Binsar
Binsar - Shitlakhet/Kausani
Now, you will need to take a call, If you wish to go to Jim Corbett, it will a detour before heading to Garhwal side. Else,
Shitlakhet/Kausani - KarnaPrayag
KarnaPrayag - Joshimath
Joshimath - Auli/Badrinath
Badrinath - Chopta/Dugalbitta/Kedarnath
Chopta - Rishikesh, onward to Haridwar. After that you can decide route back to Ahmedabad.
No reason in particular. I just like Kumaon region betterThanks VJ. Why not the other way around? Enter from Haridwar and exit from Tanakpur? Just curious.
Looks good. Few suggestions:
