I advice you to bring around £600 but you will only spend a fraction of that. You’ll probably spend around 60 to 150 going alone. I went as a family.

Minimum bus fare is about Rs 6 (1-2km). Longer it goes, cheaper it gets. Rs100-150 = 100kms Car hire: Rs 20,000 -30,000 a month. Can hire with a driver at a sightly higher cost. Food: Local meal (rice + a few curries) cost around Rs 100 from an ok shop. Rs 200-500 at a trendy restaurant. Accommodation: 3 Start hotel room costs around Rs 2000 a day, but really depends on the location.
