    Hi Vargis,

    I have made two itineraries as follows:

    1) Srinagar-Kargil-Leh-Nubra-Pangong-Leh-Kargil-Srinagar (Basic)

    2) Srinagar-Kargil-Leh-Nubra-Pangong-Hanle-Umling La-Tso Kar-Leh (If time permits and will cut it till Leh)

    Q1 - With the First itinerary, while coming back to Srinagar, is there any other route that we can explore? (If we want to avoid Kargil route as we will already take that before)

    Q2 - With the second itinerary, would it be covered in 10 days? I am planning for a 10 day expedition

    Q3- I checked google map and from Pangong to Hanle its showing as 311kms. Is there any other short route?

    Q4- Is camping allowed in all the mentioned destinations?

    Q5 - If camping isnt allowed at some destinations, is it ok to book homestays on the spot?

    Hi Srinivas,

    1. For itinerary 1, you can cover Batalik route while on your way back.
    2. For the second itinerary, you mean 10 days till Leh? How will your return then?
    3. Pangong to Hanle is about 180 - 200 kilometers. Spangmik to Hanle via Man, Merak, Chushul, Tsaga La.
    4. Yes but do not camp in middle of nowhere. Do not camp at all on Chushul, Hanle route.
    5. You will easily find a place to say on the spot.
