Frequently asked Questions
What travel documents do I need?
One must possess a passport which is valid for minimum 6 months from the date of entry into India. Many countries have been included in the list of countries whose citizens are provided E-Visa facility provided they apply 72 hours in advance. Other nationals need to obtain Indian visa in advance to enter India. Please carry a valid government id with you at all times.
What is the best time to visit India
It depends on which part of India if you wish to visit. In case you are interested in visiting Ladakh, Spiti or other parts of Himalaya then summer season is the best time. If you want to visit Rajasthan, other parts of North India or South India then winter season (October till March) is ideal period. Even travelling during monsoon months (July – September) is also not a bad idea to visit Rajasthan and other places which experience less rainfall.
How should I travel around in India?
The best way to travel within India is to travel by road as this offers you an opportunity to have a glimpse of real INDIA, the physiography ranging from vast desserts to the mighty Himalayas. You can visit en-route villages and small forts at your own pace which is not possible by air or by train. But, if you are travelling to long distance, then taking a flight or trains can be more convenient and to save time.
If at all, I have to use a travel agent / tour operator, why Planet Way Round?
“I took the one less travelled by, and that has made all the difference.”
– Robert Frost
We were just a bunch of random youngsters who grew up in the mountains. The champagne mountain air and the whiff of conifers filled our hearts with the irrepressible quest to travel and explore. From a day’s hiking trip is slowly cascaded to few days of camping and then the distances, thrill, happiness and the urge to learn and travel grew exponentially. From a group of friends on a roadtrip it grew to large lots of people travelling far and wide. The skill grew, the vision evolved and new roads unwinded leading to newer destinations. Road trips turned into expeditions and explorations with the sole urge to know, discover and learn. Experience how it feels to belong to a larger family of fun filled travel enthusiasts. Join the tribe to add life in your days – ask us where we are heading to this time and join us. There is never a better time to explore than today!
