How do I go to India for a year to learn the Sitar?

I've been taking Sitar lessons in the UK for a few months - the only trouble is there aren't that many tutors here so my lessons are far away from home/expensive and I can only go to one every couple of weeks due to work/life commitments.
It would be amazing to do a Bill and Ted and disappear for a year to learn how to play - so my question is: Is this actually possible? Assuming I can just pack up and go, what would I need to do to find and train with a sitar maestro for several months or a year? Is India the best place? How would I find a teacher...where would I stay....how much money would I need to support myself? Bonus points for anyone who has actually moved country to learn a new skill :)
