Has anyone flown Air China to India? I've been told that they charge extra for a seat assignment ahead of time.

Has anyone used Aamantran Tours which is based in Jaipur, Rathjastan? Their tours seem almost too good to be true, although admittedly the prices go up substantially for a single person.

Hi guys,

me and my friend are planning a tour to Spiti valley from 25.9. to 3.10. We are looking for 2-4 people to join us on this tour to have more fun and also lower costs :) We would like to see as much as possible so we planned this route: Shimla - Rekong Peo - Kalpa - Tabo - Pin Valley - Kaza - Chandertal - Manali - Chandigarh/Delhi. However, we are open to other suggestions to upgrade this plan :)

PM if you are interested! It would be a wonderful experience! :)
