I have to ask - are you walking around everywhere with a sign around your neck that says "FIRST TIME IN INDIA - FEEL FREE TO RIP ME OFF, I ENJOY IT" (or words to that effect) ?


P.S. I still want your money. You will not get anything in return though, other than a nice warm feeling of having being ripped off.

I noticed that absolutely everyone asked me whether it was my first trip to India... and I always recalled to have read about avoiding disclosing this information
However, what was I supposed to do, lie?!

However, I am congratulable on the brave stance I took against the pinnacle of ripping off - when the travel agent tried to charge me almost twice... that is more than Rs 30.000 extra!! Which I unbargainly dismissed

Assuming that was not an option, you were simply supposed to not get ripped off (except by me).

Nevermind that, Dilliwala, I wonder why no one seemed interested enough to comment on my travelogue!

You have a travelogue?

If you'd continued it in your original thread, more people would have seen it.
(You could ask the mods to merge the two)

Well, as you can see! I started recollecting some essential moments from the trip, expecting that people would ask me details, so I could debate more

Question Permit question!!!

The website for Himachal tourism, regarding the permit for foreign nationals, states:
"To get a permit, one must have a letter of introduction from a recognised travel agency, three passport size photos, and a photocopy of the front pages of the passport. Making several copies of the permit is suggested, as one may have to submit them at checkpoints on the way. Foreign nationals can travel with permits in a group of four or more persons. Foreign nationals cannot stay overnight between Jangi and Kaza."

My friend and I, both European passport holders, want to travel through the Kaza area, Dhankar lake, and stay over night at the Kye Monastery, as well as in Kaza.
We also don't have a travel agency, but we do have a hotel reservation in Kaza.
Is this explicitly forbidden? How would we obtain the permit, and is this possible?
I would love to travel through Spiti, so bit worried now!

Thank you!

Outdated info.

Just go to Rikang Pio, it'll be a simple matter to get the permits there. You need to go to the Tourist Info Centre, they'll get the permits done for a small fee.

The restrictions only apply to the Spilo-Hurling stretch, all the places you want to stay at are outside that.

Thanks for the reply!
That's good to hear indeed! Would it be any trouble considering we're only 2 people without an agency?
Cheers!

No trouble. Even single travellers are given permits.

Basically there are no restrictions besides the amount of days you are allowed to spend in the permit area,which are generally 7. Since the first time I went there, almost 2 decades ago, one can sleep anywhere he likes, Pooh,Nako Tashigang,Chango, you name it.
