    • 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). 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?

      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.

    • 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

    • Corbett Tiger Reserve

      by canadianclodio Online Now Jun 18, 2004 at 10:13 PM

      Hello, What do you think our chances would be of seeing wild tigers (there's no chance at all - maybe if you're lucky - there's a good chance - there's a very good chance) and wild elephants (there's no chance at all - maybe if you're lucky - there's a good chance - there's a very good chance) inside the Corbett Tiger Reserve during a two-three day stay in Feb. or March, 2005? Would this park-reserve be the best place in India to see these animals? What would be the best way to visit? Thank you for your help. Clodio

      i am planning to visit Yamunotri in May2004. i've heard about the lake called Saptarishi Kund above Yamunotri, which is the actual birth-place of Yamuna. It has been stated that the way to reach Saptarishi Kund is very difficult. How difficult is it? If anyone who has actually gone up there could give a detailed account, I'll be thankful. Aravind
