    What is the best way to take money to India?

    Any time I go out, I normally just take sterling cash which, as long as you excercise the normal degree of common sense you would at home, is safe and easy. The India rupee is a closed currency, meaning you can only get it upon arrival in the country. There are exchange facilities at all arrival airports, and ATMs are available pretty much everywhere as well in case you need to top up along the way.

    Are walking poles necessary for Indian treks?

    Although not strictly necessary, some people do like to take them along as they can be useful, especially on the descents. However, remember to pack them in your hold luggage.

    Any tips for free time in Darjeeling?

    The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway (Toy Train) is now listed as by UNESCO as a World Heritage Site. The Batasia loop between Darjeeling and Ghum provides panoramic views on the surrounding hills and Mount Kanchendjunga. The joyride will stop off at the Batasia loop for about 10 minutes as it is the most scenic spot on the route, a trip to Ghum museum is also recommended.

    Tiger Hill offers the world’s best sunrise! 11km from Darjeeling a 4am start will allow you to experience the most magnificent sunrise over the Mount Kanchendjunga range. As the sun appears the mountains change colour and on a clear morning Mount Everest is visible.

    Any restuarant tips for Darjeeling?

    Glenary’s is a great place for cakes, pastries and Darjeeling tea and offers great views of Mount Kanchendjunga on clear days. Kunga’s is one of the best restaurants for Tibetan cuisine, the steamed momos are a must!

    I have some free time in Delhi - what should I see?

    A definite place to visit when you have an extra day in Delhi is a trip to the new Akshardham Temple. Situated on the outskirts of New Delhi in the embankment of River Yamuna, this sprawling Swaminarayan Akshardham spreads over 100 acres of land and is renowned for its carved pillars, water fountains and 20,000 statues. Made from white marble and pink stone this new temple was only completed in 2005 which makes it less well known by Western tourists or the guide books. A visit to the temple is the perfect way to explore the amazing world of Indian culture and get a unique view of the Hindu religion.
    Other ‘must see’ places are the Red Fort, Humayum’s Tomb (a forerunner to the Taj Mahal), Qutab Minar, Tuqulaquabad, Purana Quila.
    The National Museum is very interesting as is the Gandhi Smriti, a museum dedicated to Mahatma Gandhi.

    I've heard the 'Delhi Belly' rumours in India -will this be a problem?

    India has delicious food to cater for all preferences but, like anywhere in the world, hygiene is important.  Keeping your hands well washed before eating, staying as hydrated as possible and sticking to bottled water is the best protection against an upset tum. Otherwise, mashed potato is apparently a good cure! Brendan Phelan - Customer Operations

    How do I compare trips for my next adventure?

    To compare trips for consideration, you can add them to your 'Shortlist'.

    During your search for your next adventure you can save 'holidays' to your Shortlist and compare trips. For this to work correctly, you must be signed in during your 'user session'; i.e. during your time on the Exodus website. These will then be saved in your account (don't have an Exodus website account?  Sign up now!).

    The Shortlist menu item (top of every page) only appears when holidays are added. Adding holidays can be done by clicking on the 'Add to shortlist' with the 'Heart' symbol on any 'Holiday' page above the 'At a Glance' section, or in the 'holiday' panels within Search Results pages, or in the 'You might also like...' section at the foot of the trip page viewed. The selected holidays will be saved into your account for consideration and can be removed there, as well as from the 'compare trips' page from the menu link located at the top of every page.
