Thanks, Varun!
That list should certainly come in handy.
PWD and Forest rest houses are the preferred places to stay - they always have the best properties! Next in line are the Tourism Dept hotels.

But isn't it hard to get accomodation in PWD rest houses?

Actually, the 'correct' procedure is cumbersome.
On a more risky basis, the caretakers are often willing to let out rooms after about 1900 hrs, when they are reasonably sure that no one with a booking is likely to show up. Sometimes, it is conditional: that if an advance booking person turns up, you'll have to vacate!
Usually, there is no problem. Whenever a booking is made, miles away in the relevant city, the caretaker is sent intimation. He is almost always aware of the bookings status.

And, a good T.I.P. (To Insure Promptness) goes a long way with these poor fellows!
What works best is a wee bit of alcoholic beverage! :mrgreen:
