Asia - Indian Subcontinent

I will be traveling to India over Nov 2012-March 2013. I am qualified in Swedish massage and want to get certified in Ayurvedic Massage whilst I am in India this time. I am also hoping to do a Panchakarma detox and learn a little about Ayurvedic nutrrition so if this could be incorparated into the course too that would be great!
I will be traveling on a budget so want to find the best possible option to end up with a recognised certification in massage and also the best possible training. I hear Kerala is'nt the best place to train even though it is originated from there.. can anyone recomend a good place for what I am looking for?
Hope so!! Hannah :)
Is there anybody out there that can give me a few tips about climbinng a 7000m mountain which is NOT a technical climb.
It dose not necessarily has to be in Napal .
Which mountain do you recommend , how long dose it take , how much would it cost to join an expedition ?
I have very little experience climbing ( Kilimanjaro , Accocauga ) so it's important to me that the climb will be a non technical one if possible .
Thank in advance
hello we are group of three people planning to trek Omasila , from gulab garh paddar to Podum , zanskar ladakh.

its 11 days trek
I want to trek across Lower and Upper Dolpo through the Shey Gompa route along with Mustang starting around mid may.
I'm looking for at least one trek companion to share the cost of permit, guide and porters.
I'm a fairly good trekker and a long term backpacker.
Anyone interested to join me?
I am in the process of planning an epic summer adventure spanning southeast asia and India, and just decided to include Sri Lanka in the itinerary (The flight was sooo cheap out of Kuala Luampur!)
So I will have four (full) days, between flying in and out of Colombo. I have yet to do the bulk of my research, especially as this was a complete whim/recent addition, but does anyone have recommendations on what would be plausible in that time span, in terms of getting out of Colombo? (To help me narrow down said research)
I'm eyeing a cheap hotel in the vicinity of Mt. Lavina, which looks like it might be a nice day trip. I enjoy just about anything, but am particularly interested in trying Sri Lankan cuisine (from what I've read it sounds incredible), nature sights, and cultural sight seeing. (don't know ifit matters, but will be fairly budget conscious/not ... more »
I'm form the UK and currently travelling India on a multiple visa, when i applied for a multiple visa i assumed this meant i could freely visit neighbouring countries and come back, but since being here i've heard if i leave, i can't come back for 2 months! I'd love to go to Nepal June time but my return flight is out of India and i only really want to go to Nepal for a max time of 2 weeks.
Does anyone know of any possible way i could do this?
Just wondering who else is planning to go and which tickets are better value??
Regular tickets are 1500Rs and VIP 4000Rs but with VIP all food and drink is included. So i'm wondering whether it'd be possible to rack up a drink bill for 2500Rs in Bangalore City Palace grounds on a concert night (i should imagine so, as Bangalore is expesive and fatboy slim are massive) but there is no information on drink prices so if anyone has been to a popular concert here, i'd really appreciate some infomation on food and drink prices?
I'm from Delhi, India. I need a break from my daily work. Wants to recreate my self. Please suggest where should i go during May.

Zahedan > Quetta (by train) ....... Quetta > Lahore (by train ) ....... Lahore to delhi ( by bus )............ Delhi to gorakhpour(by train ) Gorakhpour to Bhairwa .....Bhairwa to Kathmando .....
I'll be graduating from college in early May and was thinking about traveling to Nepal for 1-2 weeks for a trek. I've been looking into the Everest region and would like to get a change to go see it (the mountain), but the things I've been reading online make it seem like when I'm free (May 15ish - early June) the climate is hot, muggy, dirty air, and maybe wet too. Also it seems likely that clouds could obscure the mountain scenery.
Mainly I'd be interested in some mountain hiking and being able to have decent views while doing so. Has anyone been on a trek in the Everest region during that timeframe? Do you think Annapurna would be worth it instead? For name's sake I was more concentrating on Everest....
Any guidance is appreciated!
I've never been to the subcontinent, but had heard tales of how
care free a trek could be. I imagined strolling from village to village, staying in guest houses, eating local food.
I've booked a ticket to Ladakh, and am getting quite discouraged the more I do my research.
Unless I want to shell out some serious coin for a guided trekking company, it seems my options are to prepare the entire thing on my, either by buying or bringing sleeping bags, stoves, food, and so on. My question is, where in Himachal Pradesh or Ladakh can I go and have an experience closer the ones I've heard exist in Nepal, which regard to easy "trekking".
Does anybody want to share a jeep to Syabru Besi this coming Sunday? Two to three seats available.
