    Hi Jyoti,

    1. Leh rented bikes to Manali - Yes you can do it but be prepared to shed another 10-15k just for leaving the bikes at Manali and not bringing back to Leh city.
    2. Itinerary - Better travel like this.

    July 20 & 21 in Leh Day 1 & 2
    July 22 - Day 3 Leh to Nubra valley
    July 23 Day 4 Nubra to pangong tso
    July 24 Day 5 Pangong tso to Leh
    July 25 Day 6 Leh to Sarchu
    July 26 Day 7 sarchu to Jispa
    July 27 Day 8 Jispa to Manali
    July 28 Day 9 Manali to Delhi via Bus transport..

    You can also use your Day 2 for a ride towards Sriangar Leh highway and see Magnetic hill, gurudwara patthar sahib, indus-zansar confluence on the way

    hi vargis,
    thanks for your valuble advice.
    we dont want to pay extra 10-15k for leaving bikes in Manali...so we will come back to leh to drop bikes.
    will you suggest me any local transport service or bus service from Leh to Manali ? if possible please tell me their timings and per person cost too.

    So now our first 2 days ( 20 & 21st July ) will be in leh..

    we wish to travel next 6 days ( 22 - 26 July ) on a bike before leaving for Manali from Leh. So will you provide me ititnerary for those 6 days. If possible we would like to visit Tsokar, Tsokar moriri, Turtuk,Hemish National Park too.

    regards
