Somewhat agrees with Varun Bhai here. You will not be allowed to visit tso moriri while coming from pang side. It requires permit which can only be obtained from DC office in leh. I will suggest to skip pang and tso moriri on this trip and spend those extra or spare days at any of these places- kalpa, sangla, chitkul, kaza or Manali.

Also note that batal has very basic stay facility so it will be better to spend that night at camping site near chandratal.

Hope it helps...

I am in touch with a travel agent from leh( as suggested by Dheeraj) and he is ready to arrange permit and ready to send it by courier.
Thanks

Bro, except Tso-Moriri part , rest of the itinerary is as per the itinerary available on this site. Tso-Moriri part is made by me as Mr. Dheeraj suggested to take risk after arranging permits and all. And what's the point in doing adventure with zero risk , dude ;)

Cool, I am much relieved now :D ...

Anyways, jokes apart, please ensure you don't try anything insane and better to add a day than to spoil the rest of the trip. Do the journey to Jispa or Sarchu at max if at all required and then make Jispa to Tso Moriri
