    Hello Mr. Nanda,

    You can do Leh - Diskit - Leh in one day if you started really early from Leh. Nubra to Leh and then to Pangong on same day will be way too long a journey and you will reach Pangong after dark.

    Yes you can find a shared taxi from Leh for Srinagar that runs non-stop for 16-18 hours. These however start by evening and I cannot guarantee if they will get you to Srinagar before 2 noon. Go to Leh bus stand and find out if there is a cab that can get you to Srinagar by 26th before noon or else you will have to take the bus,
