Or is there a better way to travel, while still seeing the country? (unlike flying)

I'm open to any suggestions! Thanks so much

    You can hire a car and driver and take it a little slower - stopping at various villages. You might even like to consider stopping at Chitwain National Park and spending a night in the jungle! (in a lodge of course). over 7 years ago

    Siobhan, travel in India for women can be very challenging.

    If you do catch a train, make sure you go first class and get a seat in the "womens carriage". These carriages are usually patrolled by guards (except weekends). Don't sit in an empty carriage (even a womens carriage),find other women to sit near.

    As a woman I have travelled safely on trains the 8times I have been to India. I travel 2nd class mixed. Usually find myself with families. Ask for top bunk. over 7 years ago

    Yes, it is. But like Phil said, you are better off traveling in a women's carriage. I have taken the trains in India on a number of occasions without any hassle, but a friend of mine "lost" his camera near the border in Uttar Pradesh. Just keep your stuff close, and travel with a friend, if possible. over 7 years ago
