    Hi Vargis,

    I am planning on a bike trip to Leh on June - 2019. I did a leh trip few years back, started from Manali on bike which I rented from there and returned it after 10 days of riding. Had to rent a different bike for visit to Nubra valley and Pangong tso.

    This time I wish to complete the circuit Srinagar - Leh - Manali. The problem is there is no cheap option to rent bike from Srinagar and return to Manali. After going through lot of your blogs and some others I came up with an itinerary.

    Day 1 - reach Srinagar
    Day 2 - Srinagar to Kargil
    Day 3 - Kargil to Leh
    Day 4 - Leh - Nubra Valley - hunder
    Day 5 - Nubra Valley - Pangong Tso
    Day 6 - Pangong tso - Sarchu/jispa
    Day 7 - Sarchu/Jispa - Manali
    Day 8 & Day 9 - Manali - Srinagar
    Day 10 - flight from Srinagar

    I need someone of your expertise to check if this is possible. Also please do advice on what is the best route from Manali to Sringar and where could we stay on 8th day. I have around one and a half day as buffer do suggest how to use that in this itinerary.

    I spoke to Kashmir bikers, they seem to have a large fleet of bikes for rent, but didn't give me viable option to return the bike at Manali. If you have any suggestions on bike rental at Sringar it would help.

    Please note neither me nor my friends joining me on the trip are anything more than regular motorcyclist and most us will be riding with pillion.

    Hi Sabarni,

    Are you saying that you will rent a bike a Srinagar and then use the same one for visiting Nubra and Pangong as well? You can't do that. You will need a separate motorcycle for sightseeing in Ladakh.

    Hi vargis,

    I am aware of the fact that bike outside ladhak are not allowed to Nubra and Pangong. I plan to park them at some hotel in leh and rent again from there, like I did last time. Taking that into consideration do you have any suggestion for my itinerary.

    Hi Sabarni,

    Day 1 - reach Srinagar Rent a bike from Srinagar
    Day 2 - Srinagar to Kargil
    Day 3 - Kargil to Leh (Need time to apply for permits or have to prearrange them from the GH you intend to stay)
    Day 4 - Leh - Nubra Valley - hunder (Rent another bike for Leh Sightseeing)
    Day 5 - Nubra Valley - Pangong Tso
    Day 6 - Pangong tso - Leh Return the bike in Leh you took for sight seeing
    Day 7 - Leh - Sarchu/Jispa
    Day 8 - Sarchu/Jispa - Manali You can even travel little further and stay in Kullu or Mandi
    Day 9 - Manali - Jammu Full day driving required Approx. 10 hrs
    Day 10 - Jammu - Srinagar
    Day 11 - Fly out.

    Basically you need to add atleast couple of days more. Or on day 6 you start from Pangong early, return the bike in Leh, pick the other bike and ride till Pang or Sarchu and next day on wards to Manali. you can save a day by doing this.

    Cheers !!
