India Budget

Below we’ve included our budget for India. We hope this is helpful to all who plan on traveling or backpacking through India. We managed to average less than $50/day while in India. Some days it was significantly less than that, and some days it was higher. We did a lot of sight seeing, souvenir shopping, and traveled all over northern India. wpid-DSC_3629.jpg
