    Hello Vargis bhai.. I am following your 10 days itinerary for parakh which is as follows:
    Day 1. reach manali morning
    Day 2. 3am start for jispa and stay at jispa
    Day 3. early start for leh and stay at leh
    Day 4. stay at leh. Local permit and sightseeing
    Day 5. start for hindee/dikshit and camp stay at junta
    Day 6. start for hanging via shok river and camp stay at pangong
    Day 7. start for leh and stay at leh
    Day 8. start for kargil and stay at kargil
    Day 9. start for srinagar and stay at Srinagar
    Day 10. local Srinagar
    Day 11. start for delhi
    We are four people and budget traveller and I have few questions.
    1. Please suggest if I need to make any modifications in my itinerary.
    2. From manali i want to take private taxi, as I had read in your posts that we have to take different taxi in leh as outside vehicle not allowed in leh. So please suggest me do I have to engage 3 separate taxis viz. Manali to leh, leh and surrounding and leh to srinagar? Or same taxi wala will arrange everything? What will be approx cost for taxi?
    3. I am planning to camp at nubra, pangong and maybe at jispa. Since I am not getting any camp in jispa shall I go directly there and try or should I book in advance. Same goes for all three camps.
    Your inputs will be highly valuable to me as I m still planning. I have booked my tickets to reach manali and returning from srinagar.

    Hello Rahul Bhai,

    1. Your itinerary looks good enough. Just one change, you do not have to start by 3 AM from Manali. Even if you started by 6-7 AM, you will easily make it there by evening.

    2. Yes you will have to arrange for 3 different taxis. But since you are on budget, I will recommend to stay away from private taxis. Opt for either bus or a local shared taxi. Private taxi will cost you way too much, like 10-15000 for 2 days.

    3. Yes, do not book in advance anywhere. All 3 places have camp sites. Just reach there and book a camp per your liking.
