My husband and I want to travel to Leh (from Delhi) between 15thJune to 13thJuly - using either public transport or shared taxis or join anyone who's driving themselves. We're open to going from Srinagar to Leh OR Manali to Leh. Does anyone have 2 seats in a self drive/or share cab?

Cheers,
Tina

We were a group of 8 family members travelling from Jammu to Leh. We travelled with Noor Mohd, (9419890787) in Leh. Along with the warmth he possess, he is a very safe driver. He makes sure to keep every age group comfortable and satisfied. It was a beautiful experience with him in Leh.He is a fun loving person and a perfect driver for difficult roads of Leh.

Thanks a lot for taking time out to update here on forum. I would request mods to shift the post to the appropriate thread and include Noor Mohammad in the list (if it is not there). :)

Hello
In three weeks I am going to Leh where I want to stay 2 days and then I want to explore the Nubra Valley - Turtuk, Lake Pangong. Do I have to book a car (taxi) beforehand? Is it enough to do it when I arrive? Does the hotel help with booking a taxi?

You can book it on the spot. You can carry the print out od driver contacts list from the list of taxi drivers thread.

congrats anil and all the best for your trip.

Since you are starting Oct 20 via manali, and since Rohtang and Kunzum have already received the first snowfall, please double check road conditions with locals before proceeding.

Also, since it is very late in the season, I recommend that you skip Chandertal.

You can consider something like this since you have 2 weeks time:

Manali - Rohtang - Gramphu - Chhatru - Batal - Kunzum pass - Losar
Losar and around
Kaza
Kaza and around (2-3 days)
Pin Valley (2 days)
Dhangkar - Tabo
Mane village
Geyu - Chhango - Nako
Pooh - Kalpa
Kalpa and around
Sangla & Chhitkul and around
Sarahan
Shimla

If you have any specific questions, pl feel free to post them :)

Dear Mr. Dheeraj
Greetings.. I had recently concluded a trip to spiti valley (sept - october 2017 ) and would like to place my sincere thanks and appreciation for the work you have put in here. The various threads gave me an insight to the place and helped me plan my itinerary. It was of immense help all through as I was traveling with my parents who are senior citizens. Though I have visited Kaza a couple of times from Manali end, traversing the entire belt from Shimla to Manali by road needed a little bit more planning and this is where your blogs, advisory etc. came of help. Please continue this yoeman service and hope many more benefit from this blog of yours. - Sivasubramanian
