I have tried to compile a practical list of things to carry while you travel or go on trip. I am sure it will be helpful for you even in case of Manali – Leh Highway too. Refer the link below for details – List of things to carry when you go on trip or travel
As for clothing, its always best to dress up in layers with Inner Thermals both lower and upper always ON. It might irritate in bright sunshine in lower hills but as the altitude increase then it will certainly help in the shades or evenings or mornings or if the weather turn up dark. You need to carry heavy woolens while you travel to Manali – Leh Highway.
Its really IMPORTANT that you carry eateries like dry fruits (must have as backup incase you get stuck), chocolates, some non-perishable food and ample of water to keep each one of you hydrated.
Along with things mentioned in above link, if you are self-driving then you must take the Basic toolkit, screw driver set, small hammer, puncture repair kit, iron rod, two or three “2 liter” empty bottles of Pepsi / Coke / Limca etc to carry extra petrol or diesel (jerry cans will leak, cold drink bottles do not leak), funnel, towing rope, spare tube (must for bikes), Elfy or Fevi quick (2-3 sachets), jump start cables/wires, M-seal to prevent leakage etc. These are among the things which I carried along on my trip to Ladakh.
Also, do not forget to get your vehicle (car/bike) serviced about 2-3 weeks before the start of the Ladakh journey. This will ensure that you have proper time in advance to test your serviced vehicle and get fixed any hitches that may have been introduced in that service.
