    Hi Anshul - Definitely go for plan 3 brother, that is the best.

    I am only advising on the part between Amritsar and Delhi. Because the rides before and after that are very long and I will leave it for you to decide whether or not you can actually manage it.

    Thank you Vargis for the quick response. A had a small chat with my team and they seem to happy about the route "C".

    For
    Leh to nubra(Dikshit)
    Diskit to Turtuk
    Turtuk to Panamik
    Panamik to Pangong via Shyok
    Pangong to Hanle
    Hanle to Karzok
    Karzok to Pang / Sarchu
    Sarchu / Pang to Manali

    could you suggest me the routes it would be advisable to take.
    And it would be really helpful if you could guide us with the route permits and where do we require them.

    Since we all would be in a ADV motorcycle so terrain is not a problem for us and we would like to take the lesser traveled roads wherever possible.

    Take a look at this map to know the routes. Just follow the places you mentioned in the itinerary and you will know which road to take. For Karzok to Manali, you will take the road via Tso Kar.

    For permits, take a look at this post.

    Hi Vargis,
    Thank you for your Input. However due to the current situation in Kashmir will it be advisable to visit during June ?
    My team is really reluctant reading about constant tension in the valley. We might head to Spiti instead of Ladakh.

    Will the adventure of the SPITI valley be as good as Ladakh ?

    Thanks in Advance.

    Don't change anything now. I am sure things will be all well by June and specially after the tourist season starts. Keep the plan same for the moment. What happens in Kashmir has almost no impact in Ladakh.
