My trip was not expensive in my opinion. If you want to fly to india… do the golden triangle by yourself or with a friend, then go home happy, this is a pretty good guide to follow.

My trip with everything was under a thousand pound. I was very happy with that. I also bought Gold and trainers which did make it more expensive but that’s optional of course.
