With the influx of help, I have been referred to some cheaper Indian travel websites, and can now look forward to round trip international airfare (JFK to Delhi) costing no more than $2000 (if booked soon!). Travel from Delhi to Leh (in Ladakh) would be around $100. Living expenses of $500-600 if I stay 30+ days.
That means right now, $2500 would be the bare minimum I can go over with, and anything additional would be contributed towards helping SECMOL!
