Is there any chance you might consider shortening the event? From my perspective 17 days seam to be quit long time, that would also make our event cheaper. I can see people as concern about costs.


I would happily join the event if its 10 days for similar or a bit more expensive price as 2010. Would be great to have some extras organized which we would pay if we want to participate like biking etc.


I agree to what Zorani posted at the begin of discussion:


________







Pradeep, although we are still 9 months away, I'd suggest a few additions/changes to program:
- Split event into 10+7 days (as it was done in 2010) for people who cannot afford 3 weeks vacation from work
- If this lypse gets high percentage of repeaters from 2010 I'd suggest to tweak the route to cover areas not covered in 2010 (or at least minimize overlaps)
- Offer additional programs for people who are not into every-day photography modus operandi (additional sightseeing, biking, hot-ballooning where available, ...) - as this can be organized with our travel agent from 2010 and it would not be additional burden to you.

Yup ! OK. So, here we go into another brainstorming session ! Cheers, Pradeep

Just thinking wild !

Group 1 : full 17 days as per the itinerary already provided
Group 2 : just 10 days' program as follows :

Day 01 : Delhi arrival
Day 02 : Delhi-Mandawa
Day 03 : Mandawa
Day 04 : Mandawa
-Jaisalmer
Day 05 : 
Jaisalmer
Day 06 : Jaisalmer
Day 07 : Jaisalmer-Jodhpur
Day 08 : Jodhpur
Day 09 : Jodhpur 
Day 10 : Flight or Train from Jodhpur to Delhi & departures next day.

For the second group (10-day version) there won't be any shooting in Jaipur & Delhi as part of the MiniLypse programme. Their cost will be reduced on pro-rata basis (well almost). Also, their 'model fee' charges shall stand scaled down. Final figures being worked out.


My group  is working fast & furious to accommodate all reasonable feedback received in this thread. Some more changes may be announced soon. As soon as a somewhat concrete program is reached ... I will site-mail everyone.

Both the groups shall begin together, but end separately. I strongly recommend Group I for those who are coming to India for the first time (and do have enough time at their disposal). Group II may be OK for those members who are having their 2nd India MiniLypse - unless they too have enough time at their disposal to do the GRAND full lypse program. And, all those who're visiting India for the first time will be well-advised to take some extra time out to visit the Taj (Agra).

Good luck with the planning Pradeep - as a previous attendee I can certainly recommend it to those that have never been to India.

Thanks Gary ! A longer & a tougher itinerary this time ... so need as much luck as hard work in planning the logistics.

Please refer to my post above "Just thinking wild"  ... you can possibly join the 10-day program. This is precisely what I have suggested to Iza as well. The 10-day version does cover three wonderful locations - Mandawa, Jaisalmer & Jodhpur. For this shortened version you will have to cut out on Delhi & Jaipur.

Reading the previous posts, I believe it does,  though I think the price is based on 'two-sharing' - so there might be a single-supplement.


Regards

Thanks kbwills, you're very right. Yup ! Indeed, the participation charges quoted by us are ALL INCLUSIVE - all food (in hotels or in transit), all travel (within cities, or intercity, or airport drops & pick-ups), all hotel accommodation, all model fee, basic office work & essentail OTC medical supplies. Cheers, Pradeep.

No problem Chris. I quite appreciate. Our main coverage will that be of "Jaisalmer Desert Festival" and the entire lypse program has been scheduled around those dates ! Cheers, Pradeep.
