Yes, it's got "expensive" if that's the word for a $10 hotel room. Most cost more.
Rs 150 and 200 rooms are still let out by villagers and my personal experience at one such place was extremely good (300 for all 3 meals + stay 3 years back), it's not a good idea to plan as such. And no tour guide operator would plan for such a place, either.
@lovish: you da math whiz dude! $3000 it is.
