    Hi vargis,
    Thanks for helping people like us for completing trips at such wonderful places.
    We already did manali-leh-manali circuit this time thought of doing srinagar-leh-manali trip on bikes and itinerary follows. We are on a little bit tight schedule, so please let us know any changes needed in out itinerary

    Jun 21 | Srinagar and collect bikes
    Jun 22 | Srinagar/Verinag – Sonamarg – Wayul – Zozi La – Drass – Kargil

    Jun 23| Kargil – Mulkbekh – Saraks – Heniskot – Lamayuru –Khalsi – Leh

    Jun 24| Buffer day at leh

    June 25| Leh – Khardung La – Diskit – Hunder

    June 26| Hunder / Diskit –Pangong Tso Lake

    June 27 | Pangong Tso Lake – Tsmoriri

    June 28 | Tso Moriri – Tso Kar – Pang – Sarchu

    June 29 | Sarchu – Manali

    June 30 | Manali – Delhi – Hyderabad

    Please let us know any logistical issues like roads, fuel any issues or any things we need to take care of, as the days at leh-pangong-tsomirir-sarchu is bit tedious.

    And as per new notice by bikes associations we need to exchange bikes at sarchu and from there proceed to manali. So please let me know the way of transport to manali from sarchu one we drop our bikes at sarchu.

    One probable solution i thought of is returning to leh instead of sarchu from tsomoriri and book a tempo to manali, but we thought if doing the trip on bikes till sarchu as the moore planes are beautiful to watch that too on bikes. Please provide us any solution/way

    PS: i already posted my question on one of the on going thread, as i dont know i can create a discussion thread. Please reply there or here as per you convenience.

    Swaroop - You know you cannot use Srinagar rented motorcycles in Ladakh, correct? For visiting places like Nubra and Pangong, you will have to rent another set of motorcycles from Leh City. And if you are not returning the motorcycles in Srinagar, you will have to pay another 15k over and above.

    Hi vargis,
    Thanks for your quick response.
    Yeah we know about the bike situation. We have one contact who is taking care of bike related issues. We are taking ladakh bikes only but they will get us bikes to srinagar and we are dropping them at sarchu and picking manali bikes from sarchu to manali. Yes cost is a bit higher.

    And a small change in itinerary we are coming back from nubra to leh(suggested by our bike contact) instead of going to tomoriri as the roads are bad and conditions are harsh in june-july. Then from leh-pangong-tsomoriri to sarchu.
    So please let us know anything we need to consider or change. It will be of so much help for us. Looking forward for your reply
