It's practically impossible to determine the perfect India itinerary, even with a full four weeks scheduled. Most travel sites we've found all agree that you just can't do it all no matter how much time you give yourself. Sadly, I don't think we'll be making the Ajanta Caves in Maharashtra, the Ghats in Varanasi, or Chennai in Tamil Nadu. However, it does look like we'll be able to hit Delhi, Agra, Jaipur, Mumbai, Goa and Kerala. It will still be a challenge fitting in all there is to do just from this short list of destinations; The Gate of India, the Red Fort, the Taj Mahal, Elephanta Island, a tiger safari, camel rides in the desert, houseboat cruises in the back waters of Kerela, the beaches of Cherai and so on. With any luck we'll be able to experience all these places have to offer... especially the elephants.
