      I'm a solo female traveller and going to go to Kinnaur area in early July. I'm taking the flight Delhi-Chandigarh but otherwise travelling w bus (Chandigarh-Shimla-Reckong Peo). I am not new to India (m from Europe) but new as a solo traveller so tiny bit concerned about safety issues.

      Happy to get any info on weather, too (whether the monsoon would be horrendous, the landslides get me stuck in the bus overnight, the clouds prevent any sighting of the mountain tops, etc.). Thanks for any advice and info you can share!

So that I can be better prepared and also hopefully decrease some of their anxiety, are there any other women who have traveled there alone? Or anyone else who has traveled/stayed there that can provide some honest insight into actual safety concerns?

      volunteering and yoga

      by magicwoman79 Online Now Mar 22, 2010 at 12:31 AM

      I'll be going to Dharamsala/Mc Leod Ganj for about a month in August.
      I'd like to inquire with you kind people about two things:

      1) volunteer opportunities. I'm an English teacher and would love to do some volunteer teaching to buddhist nuns, monks or frmer political prisoners/exiles. I've tried to organize it online, but the communication's proved damn hard. I was told to just turn up and look for opportunities, but maybe those of you who've had these experiences could push me in the right direction?

      2) I'll be looking for a good yoga centre, offering retreats or daily classes around there. Anyone's found a jewel that could be recommended?

      I'd really appreciate your help.

      Love and brown rice,
