    • Zanskar trek without guide

      Ladakh Range Dec 19, 2016 at 8:23 AM

      Hi, I am planning to do the Zanskar trek from Padum to Lamayuru next summer, however my budget is tight and I would like to do it alone (without guide). ju-lehadventure.com/trekking... I will be carrying a reliable GPS so I am confident I will find the way. My main concern is to know if homestays can be found all along the itinerary or if I will have to carry tent and food?
      Do you know if homestays can be found in Hanamur and Snertse?
      Thanks

    • Cell phone.

      Mumbai Jan 9, 2017 at 7:01 PM

      I happened to have a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone (USA) that I plan to travel to India with. I have heard that the frequencies used by Indian carriers for GSM-2, 3 may be different from the ones supported by Samsung S3.
      Would there be someone who is using a Samsung Galaxy S3 cell phone in India and knows that it works. Thanks.

      I plan to visit India for a three week period. I realize there is a currency crunch at this time (Jan. 4th 2017 today) in India. I am wondering if ATM machines in Mumbai have started dispensing out the cash? I have a couple of USA credit cards and a US Bank ATM card. Will it be a grim situation for me? I also have a couple of hundred US Dollars in cash with me. Any suggestion (short of don't come) would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.

      Hi travelling to Mumbai next week and have been looking at news articles regarding money shortages after withdrawal of larger notes. Kind of getting a mixed picture. What is actually happening? Is cash available at ATMs? Would I be able to get money at the airport? I have been to India a lot and understand that cash is still the main way to pay for goods and services, so therefore feeling a bit concerned. Any help/tips appreciated.

    • Christ University, Bangalore -- so what's it really like?

      Bangalore Dec 25, 2016 at 1:27 PM

      Is there anyone out there among our VT people who have had any experience with Christ University in Bangalore?
      I'm mainly trying to get general information about what it is like both as an academic institution -- level of teaching, students -- and as a social atmosphere. Plus the quality of the actual, physical lay out.

      Ask because I've had no experience with higher education in India and have the opportunity to link with a variety of universities (in areas of the social sciences, business, humanities, languages) -- and Christ University, Bangalore, is one of them. But is it a good choice?

      If you know the place and feel like answering -- please be frank! Much appreciated.

      Thank you. - Eurycleia

      by BooBoo35 Online Now Jan 1, 2008 at 3:26 AM

      Hi how safe is Ahmedabad for ladies travelling on their own. We were referred to by friends to stay at Ellidbridge gymkhana. Is this a nice club to stay at? Are there any specific rules for ladies(non indian)travelling there? Where do we go for interesting markets to shop for material and traditional and western clothing? Want to fly to Mumbai what cheap reliable airlines are there and where could we stay thats not to expensive but clean and has a private bathroom. A place that can accommodate 3 in one room. What means of transport do we use in both cities. Your input will be greatly appreciated.

      Hi all,

      I am excited to be visiting Ahmedabad. Though I spend 2 days (21st/22nd), I would be spending the first day doing some official work..but I could meet other VTers travelling there over the evening. I do have the flight back to Bangalore in the evening - any suggestions for a quick trip around/shopping? I love photography and hence the colorful ethnic crafts would also interest me - where can I go to visit them without spending too much time looking around? Thanks for any kind of info...Any travelers in Ahmedabad/locals, pls mail me either on VT address or .
      Regards,

      Wedding shopping is killing me

      by rakhipandya Online Now Jan 4, 2006 at 4:04 AM

      Hi all

      I desperately need some advice and quick. In Feb of this year I leave London for Mumbai to come and do my wedding shopping. With precious little time, I have been advised that Ahmadabad is the place to go. It's cheaper, has just as much varierty and being a guju, the language will not be a problem. But typically everyone has an opinion and the other half say go Rajkot. Is there anyone there who can advise seeing as my family is soo out of touch with India I can't trust them.


      Cheers guys

      Shots needed?

      by supune Online Now Jul 22, 2005 at 11:02 AM

      If I'm going to be in Ahmadabad in December how critical is it to get shots? I've been told to "definitely" get Hepatytus and Typhoid shots as well as Malaria pills.

      For sure I can't take the Malaria pills.

      Do travelers always take such precautions? For sure, I don't want to get sick when I'm on my trip or after. I'm just wonderng how frequent it is for someone who is only going to be in India for 2 weeks to get sick.

      I'll be with some kids and possibly in the slums. So would it make it more likely that I'll need the shots. If I do go without the shots, would other travelors, consider me crazy?

      thanks for your opinions and facts and number are appreciated.

      by supune Online Now Jul 9, 2005 at 8:51 PM

      Hi, I'm planning on going to Ahmadabad on December 20th.

      Does anyone have any general advice? I'm just starting my travel research. I've never been to India nor do I know alot about it. I was born in Sri Lanka but have lived in the US since I was 4yrs old.

      My first question is:
      I want to go to Dehli on December 31st and come back to Ahmadabad in time to make my trip back home at 10pm on Jan 3rd. What is the best way to travel. I was reccommened to use Jet Airways, (about270 round trip). It would be cool to go by land (bus, train) from Ahmadabad to see the landscape. Would that be possible? I'll be meeting with a group that will be touring New Dehli on the 1st and then we are hoping to go to Agra on the 2nd. Then I have to get back to my flight on the 3rd.

      2nd:
      I'll be in Ahmadabad for 10 days. What are some recommendations for places to stay.
      Anyone intrested in VT meetings from Dec 22nd to Dec30th? What are the best places for someone who only knows english?

      thanks.
