    Hi,

    I and my husband are planning a trip to leh via srinagar.

    Initially I had thought of
    Srinagar, Kargil, Leh,nubra, pangong, leh, jispa/sarchu, manali and back to mumbai via chandigarh.

    After doing a lot of R&D, I have been suggested to drop the rohtang pass/manali plan as it would become too costly and hectic.

    Please, I need your help/advise on preparing an itenary.

    I can end my trip either at leh or srinagar instead of going to manali.

    I want a reasonable, comfortable, adventorous plan.

    Please do guide me with your valauble inputs.

    Regards,

    Nafisa

  2. Hi, I’m a female planning to do a solo to Leh, Ladakh from Delhi. I understand the Leh-Manali road will be closed by then but what are my options to get from Manali to Leh. Can I book a shared taxi in advance or must I try my luck on the day itself? If so, where do I find these taxis or contact them? Or do I have a better chance with the HRTC buses? As I would prefer to do a stop at Keylong.

    Please advise on the feasibility of the above as I do want to experience on-the-road travel. Otherwise would you recommend flying into Leh directly from Delhi.

    Your advice would be very much appreciated.

    • You are alone and private taxis are very costly in Leh but you will be able to find the shared taxi without much fuss at all. There are lots of flyers which people put at cafes, dine-ins, restaurants, travel agent desks/shops/whiteboards wanting to share the taxis for different trips within Ladakh. Even travel agent organize such shared taxis trip as well but charge a little higher about Rs 200-300 more than it would ideally cost. So, in the worst case, you can always go back to them and book a seat for yourself. Gelling up with people in Ladakh is more or less easy because many people travel solo and look forward to meeting new people and share cultural thoughts and values over the trip.

      You can easily try your luck on the day itself or an evening before to get the taxi. For Manali – Leh journey, if budget is not too much of concern, HPTDC Tourist Bus service can also be opted.

      • Hi Dheeraj,

        Thank you for your prompt response! Would these shared taxis and HPTDC Tourist Bus Service be still available in the month of October? And can I opt for night stop at Keylong?

        Really appreciate it!

        • In the month of October, I believe only HRTC buses will be running which stops at Keylong. HPTDC stops at 15th September. Regarding tourist shared taxis in October, well, depends on luck as it is season end and rush of tourists is less. So, be prepared to make trips over local shared taxis too.

    Hii DoW,
    We are group of 3 friends. We have planned a trip of 7 days to visit leh in second week of August. This is our first visit this place and we want to make most out of this trip. At the same time we want our trip to be full of adventure and a bit relaxing as well.

    Our travel plan is like we are taking flight to and fro to Leh from Chandigarh. We want to hire/rent bike for all local sight seeing in and across Leh (like Leh local sight seeing, Nubra Valley and Pangong lake, etc.)

    Can you please guide to utilize our time in the best possible way.

    Thanks in advance

    Mohit

  4. Hi Dheeraj,
    We have booked a cab from Rampur for Spiti and in accordance of your last reply we have reserved 3 days for jispa, bara la chaa la and Suraj Tal, but our cabbie is a bit reluctant to visit those areas on the pretext that we need permits for that.
    We are not sure what to do as our cab driver will not furnish permits for areas beyond Gramphoo, can you confirm about the need of permits and if they are needed how can we furnish them ?
    Thanking in advance. 🙂

    • If you are traveling from Spiti Valley to Keylong, there is no permit required for it. You can get connected directly to some drivers in Himachal or Spiti Valley or Kinnaur Valley at the link: List of Taxi Drivers for Spiti Valley & Kinnaur Valley. These drivers can come and pick you up from Manali / Shimla / Delhi / Chandigarh too, of course with a price of the pickup as well.

      These drivers are more familiar with the routes and road conditions in Spiti and Lahaul.

  5. Hi, we are planning to travel to Manali in July 2nd week. Planning to go to Rohtang pass as well. Would you think this is a good time or will the rains prevent us from visiting a lot of tourist spots?
