Hello Vargis and the rest of people reading this such interesting blog, First of all, many thanks for your information Vargis. This kind of blogs makes you feel comfortable when traveling by your own. You do a great job for tourists and people wanting to explore Ladakh region. I would be pleased if you could let me know your opinion and suggestions on the following issues: I'll be traveling to India for 17 days between Sept 9-24 with a friend. It's our first time there and sadly very short but we want to squeeze it as much as possible! Question 1 - The special permission to visit Pangong Tso can be obtained at Leh agencies? How much does it cost approximately? Question 2 - We get to Leh by plane but we want to go to Manaly by road. We understand that weather will not be an inconvenient! I have checked the bus schedules and just on September 13, when we want to get off, there is no service. Our second option is to do it by private taxi but I would like to know if we can choose the departure time. We plan to be in Lamayuru that day and leave around 16pm towards Keylong. Can we arrange a taxi to take us directly or do we have to go first to Leh? Question 3 - What is the temperature average in the first half of September? Do we have to wrap up a lot or is therestill good weather? Question 4 - We are arriving early in the morning, around 7am. Do we need to rest all day or could we visit the Palace and Bazar already after lunch? Thanks for your time and help!
