Is $1500 a safe amount for 6 weeks in India?

David this should be enough without doing anything too over the top. Decent hotels in most big cities cost $100/$150 + but there is always the cheapo places. The YMCA in Delhi is a cheap okay place to stay. Take the public or tourist-class buses and get up to Manali and/or Leh for some hiking. Day hikes and overnights with a guide shouldn't be too pricey. In Leh, a decent hotel should cost from $30.

$1500 is safe but not a whole lot of money. india has gotten very expensive. if you want to stay in decent hotels and eat in good restaurants $1500 wil barely make it.

Safe amount? Depends. But certainly possible. Big cities will put a strain on that $35/day budget. Small towns will be no problem. Bus and trains are fine, the overnight "hard sleeper" train is comfortable despite the name, and cheap. Eating is almost always inexpensive. I like going cheap, but if I were in your place, I'd feel a bit more comfortable if I could squeeze an extra $100. into that budget. Just in case.

Accommodations are the one thing that can break your budget. You can stay at really nice places without spending a fortune in India. It just takes a bit of research. Here is a hostel website that you can use in India. http://hostels.bootsnall.com/asia-india . I'm happy to help you furhter in picking between places. I think my most expensive meal in India was $6. US. In Mumbai you must go to a good Thali restaurant. I went to : Golden Star Thali - 330, Raja Ram Mohan Roy Rd (Across from Charni Rd Station, Mumbai) Amazing! I was in Mumbai and then traveled south to Goa and Kerala and therefore I can't help on any travels North.
