    Hello Vargis & Team, First of all, thanks for all the help that you do to the travellers out there.

    We are a gang of 7 friends planning for a road trip Leh trip starting week. We will be travelling in our bikes. Here is our itinerary:

    Day 1 – 15th Aug – Amristar to Srinagar
    Day 2 – 16th Aug – Srinagar local sightseeing & Gulmarg & return to Srinagar
    Day 3 – 17th Aug – Srinagar to Sonmarg to Drass to Kargil
    Day 4 – 18th Aug – Kargil to Lamayuru to Leh
    Day 5 – 19th Aug – Leh local sightseeing (Thikse & Zanskar included)
    Day 6 – 20th Aug – Leh to Panamik to Hunder
    Day 7 – 21st Aug – Hunder to Pangong Lake
    Day 8 – 22nd Aug – Pangong Lake to Pang
    Day 9 – 23rd Aug – Pang to Manali
    Day 10 – 24th Aug – Manali to Chandigarh

    Questions:
    • Does the plan look good for a first time Leh trip? Any changes, or suggestions that you would provide?
    • Is travelling on 15th Aug from Amristar to Srinagar is fine? We may reach Srinagar by 9 or 10 PM.
    • Do we need to get ILP in Leh?
    • How are the road conditions in August? Do we need to worry about rains?
    • Anything else we need to consider at this time of the year?
    Thanks,
    Siva

    1. The plan is good and doable.
    2. Security and checking will be very high during Independence Day.
    3. You need ILP in Leh. Fill the online form and carry the printout with you. Visit the Tourist Information Centre,opp to J&K Bank, pay the fees and get it stamped.
    4. Up to Zozilla you will encounter rains and after Barcha la same will be the case. So factor in delays due to land slides, temporary road blocks, etc. Road condition in Leh remain good, check for the Agham Shyok route as its availability depends upon the rain and water in the river.
    5. Read about AMS and prepare yourself accordingly.
