Hello! This is my first time posting on India travel forum so please bear with me! I'm registered to study Tibetan in McLeod Ganj for nine months starting in September so I'm going to be applying for a student visa. I was going to just try to find a place to stay upon arriving in McLeod Ganj, but it appears since I'll be staying for more than six months, I have to register with Foreign Registration Office or something. So, my question is, do I need to arrange accommodation for the entire nine months ahead of time, and, if so, can anyone recommend a low-price place to stay that includes access to a kitchen? Really any information about registering and long-term accommodation in McLeod Ganj would be greatly appreciated. Thanks!
