Zojila remains open until long - so Oct 14 should not be a problem

Hi guys, i plan to do a solo ride from Bangalore to Leh in November 1st week. I’ll be riding from the Srinagar side. Will this road be open by then? Also what about the guest houses in remote areas like Hunder,Panamik,Lukung? Will they be open?

you will have guest houses in Hunder and Panamik. For Pangong Tso, you can stay at Tangtse or at Merak. Nothing will be there in Lukung and Spangmik.

Also, november first week is a bit of touch and go, you'll have to check road conditions closer to the date. I'd actually advise against it as even if you get into Ladakh, it may be difficult to get back in case the road closes due to snowfall by then !!
