travel information


climate

The finest weather in northern India occurs from October until the end of April. During autumn, days are mild and although it can get quite cold at night during the height of the winter months (December and January), days are crisp and sunny. During this time, the temperature typically ranges from a high of 30°C (86°F) to an overnight low of approximately 2°C (35°F). Spring is similar to autumn with warm temperatures, and the summer months of May through September see the onset of the monsoon, when sunbursts follow heavy rains and temperatures hover around 35°C (90°F) throughout the day and night.

language

There are many distinct languages and dialects in India; in the northern region, Hindi and English are widely spoken. Road signs and directions are written in both.

currency

The national currency is the rupee. It is divided into 100 paisas. Traveller’s cheques are easy to cash and some banks in larger cities have ATM machines.

immigration requirements

Visas are required. There are three tourist visas available: a 15-day single/double entry transit visa, a 90-day visa, or an extended six-month multiple re-entry visa. Enquiries should be directed to the nearest Indian embassy or consulate.

health

Amanbagh offers guests 24-hour access to medical assistance, with an onsite emergency clinic staffed by a qualified paramedic. Reasonable precautions should be taken against hepatitis-A, malaria, cholera and typhoid. Drinking boiled or bottled water is often an adequate precaution against water-borne illnesses. Guests should consult their doctor and arrange travel insurance prior to departure.

travel tips

Electricity is 230 volts/ 50 cycles. India is plus five-and-a-half hours Greenwich Mean Time (GMT). During the winter months of December and January, warm clothes will be required, particularly in the morning and evening. During autumn and spring, guests should pack light woollens for early morning and evenings, with lighter clothing for the rest of the day. During the hot summer months it is recommended that guests wear light yet conservative attire. Guests should always travel with comfortable walking shoes and a wide-brimmed hat.
