I was there 8 years ago, and am going to move back for a few months this summer. A few questions for people who "know" only:

1. Is there a listing somewhere of apartment/houses to rent, preferably in Mcleod Gang, near the center? Anyone have any idea on prices for a decent but not maharajaesque place?

2. Would anyone recommend some interesting places to volunteer? I have mad skills in a number of arenas.

3. Are there flights from Delhi to anywhere near Mcleod Gang or Dharamkot and how much do they go for?

4. This is controversial, but don't blame me for asking: Is the place still packed with Israelis everywhere? If so, have they gotten any politer? I am Jewish btw, if that makes my question better.

I apologize if some of these questions have been posted before.

Many thanks and any comments will be great!

1. Not sure but you could try the LHA charity office on Temple Road, I think they have some sort of placement service. I'm paying Rs 500/- per day for an ok ensuite hotel room with tv, balcony and nice view, but will be moving to a guesthouse with a shabby but ok ensuite room, no view and shared roof terrace for Rs 175/- but I think that's a special deal as an LHA volunteer.

2. I'm at LHA and it seems ok but I've only just started.

3. Flights to Kangra airport, about 30 mins by taxi. Cost me RS8500/- single from Delhi, but I was probably ripped off and I think you can get cheaper.

4. Haven't seen any. I heard the hotel keeper tell another guest that there aren't so many coming now.
