Hello Vargis. I am a new member of your travel blogs. I like your blogs and writing style very much. I must say you are doing a great job here, serving all of the travel enthusiasts like us, selflessly. Your posts are always informative and to the point! Now, writing to you as for the fact that me and my friend (we are only 2 in number) reside in Bangladesh. We are planning for a journey to Leh in around the last week of June and first week of July. We are job-holders and have really less time to travel so we have decided to complete part of the journey by air. We have in total 6 days in our hand. Detailed itinerary: Day 1, June 25 Delhi to Srinagar plane (at 5:40 AM) Reach Srinagar at 7.00 AM Start for Dal lake tourist center BUS terminal (23 kms) Take bus to Leh at 8 AM (direct if possible, and find hotels), OR, Shared Taxi for leh, OR, broken journey and stayover at Kargil (find hotels again) Day 2, June 26 If no direct bus was possible, start from Kargil in the same bus early morning. If direct bus was possible, Stay at leh, city sightseeing. Avail PAP for going outskirts. Day 3, June 27 Roam around leh outskirts with PAP. Day 4, June 28 Roam around leh outskirts with PAP. If possible start for Manali, if not then stay at leh. Day 5, June 29 Start for Manali early morning. If possible take this bus (direct to Delhi: 1 night stopover at Keylong (find accommodation/hotels) Day 6, June 30 Start from Keylong early morning by bus. Reach Delhi. 1. First question is will there be any monsoon over there? Because we really don't like rain and a hazy, misty weather during our travel. What about weather in Manali? 2. Next up, seeing the itinerary which place would be perfect for getting our PAP? If I want to stay a night at any hotel at srinagar/kargil will I require PAP as a foreign national? 3. I read almost all your blog writings. I would like to know about the particular bus and its timings which leaves from Srinagar and arrives at Leh without staying over one night at Kargil. Does that stop at any place for sightseeings? 4. If I miss the 8 AM bus to Leh from Srinagar, will there be any sort of good buses/transportation later on at afternoon or evening to Leh? Are the shared taxis always available or there is a time slot for them too? Does all these form of transport stop over for sightseeings? 5. Is my itinerary too tightly packed for triggering AMS? I haven't traveled to such heights ever and this would be my first time. 6. Should I prebook a hotel at Leh and then travel to leh? Or can I get on there and just get in some hotels? Are cheap hotels available upfront? We are putting emphasis on cheap hotels, as we are low on budget for hotels. Do provide some budget hotels/transport contacts if you have for us. Please recommend us what to do. And suggest edits where needed. You are most welcome to do that. Thanks in advance!
