    Hi bhai.
    Greetings for your good work.
    I am planning for a trip to Leh in October. Kindly review my itinerary for the same. I have applied for permits online and have selected all the available circuits mentioned in the list. (For Safety so as to not miss any point where permits might be required through the journey). Also i want to know whether i have to take multiple copies of the online permit that is generated or do i have to take the copies after payment and getting it stamped?
    Do they ask for photostats / Xerox or each copy should be individually stamped?
    My itinerary:
    Fly from Chennai - Delhi - Leh.

    02/10/18 - Reach Leh.
    Acclimate and rest + arrange permits and bike and leh local sightseeing. + {River Rafting if time allows at Nimmu.}

    Hi Praneet - Your itinerary is doable but how are you traveling around in Ladakh?? The normal ILP will work for the Batalik route as well.

    I am planning to hire 4 bikes from Leh.
    And moving onto permit.... In my permit there is no such mention for batalik...
    its just Dha... will it work ?
    And is there any permit required just before you are about to enter Kargil ???

    How much time would i require to obtain the permits if i opt to take it on 3rd ???
    And is there any option to get the permits ready on 1st october itself through any agent / firm ???

    You can try contacting a hotel there. Transfer them the money, send your IDs and book your stay with them. They will arrange the permit for an additional charge.
