  1. Slightly wrong with the hotel prices. It changes with season and time. Better to visit the hotel and talk to the manager of the hotel about the rent. Depending upon how the business is on the rent rent could vary from Rs 1000 to 2000.

    • Hello Jiggi,

      The hotel rates quoted in the blog are correct. There is no doubt that off season and group discounts are a norm.
