  • Natty on #24894

    Hey guys,

    We are a couple from Thailand and we will fly to Leh on April 8. We have planned the trip cover our bucket lists in only 6 days because on April 13 we have to fly back to Delhi.
    Could you please suggest the best plan for us ?and this is our first time in Leh. :P

    Which one is better?

    Plan 1

    Day 1 Arrival Leh Airport
    Check in at Sia-la guesthouse
    Shanti Stupa – Leh Market in the evening

    Day 2 Leh – Lamayuru – Liker – Alchi

    Day 3 Leh – Khardungla Pass – Deskit – Hunder (Nubra Valley)
    overnight at Hotel grand nubra, Deskit

    Day 4 Deskit-Pangong Lake via Warila or Shyok – come back to Leh (changla pass)

    Day 5 Leh- Tsomoriri – Leh (one day trip)

    Day 6 Leh Airport Drop

    ……………………………………………………………….

    Plan 2

    Day 1 Arrival Leh Airport
    Check in at Sia-la guesthouse
    Shanti Stupa – Leh Market in the evening

    Day 2 Leh – Lamayuru – Liker – Alchi

    Day 3 Leh – Khardungla Pass – Deskit – Hunder (Nubra Valley)
    overnight at Hotel grand nubra, Deskit

    Day 4 Deskit-Pangong Lake via Warila or Shyok – heading to Tsomorori
    (Where can I stop for overnight on the way from Pangong to Tsomoriri??)

    Day 5 Tsomoriri – Leh

    Day 6 Leh Airport Drop

    And one more question, can you recommend for english speaking driver for us?
    We try to contact more than 6-7 drivers in your list by text to them via Whatapps but the problem is they can not reply or understand our request in english.

    However, English is not my mother tongue; please excuse any errors on my part. 😥

    Thank you so much for your help
    Will looking forward to hear from you soon :)

    Welcome to DoW Community !! :) :)

    I will suggest you do following:

    Day 1 | Leh Rest and acclimatization
    Day 2 | Sham Valley Tour, dont exert much
    Day 3 | Leh – Nubra
    Day 4 | Nubra – Leh
    Day 5 | Pangong Tso Day trip as it will be cold
    Day 6 | Rest of fly back

    And one more question, can you recommend for english speaking driver for us?

    It will be difficult, Did you search for english reference with driver profiles in the list of drivers

    Please get your PAP (Protected Area Permit) the first day you land in Leh as I see you have not factored time for that

    Natty,
    You itinerary is completely unrealistic.
    How can you go to Tso Moriri in one day? You need 3 days just for that.
    Even a day-trip to Pangong lake is a bad idea, you should at least spend a night there if you don’t want to spend all your time in the car.
    For Sham, it can be done ine one day if you go up to Alchi. But I would also recommend to take 2 days if you want to go all the way to Lamayuru.
    You should have a closer look at map and distances:
