    Dear Arup
    First of all, very very sorry for the belated reply. once in a while ( read as rarely) only, i visit this webpage hence the delay in replying
    coming to your interest, the above itinerary was remodified to suit the needs of another couple joining with us from bangalore.
    the new itinerary is as below :
    sep 24 - arrival leh by flight - acclimitization - ILP paper works - shanthi stupa - leh city view - sunset - night stay
    sep 25 - attending the grand gala ladakh festival -- river rafting in eveng
    sep 26 to sep 30 - continuous hectic travel by car - covering nubra diskit turtuk (stay) - pangong via shyok - merak stay - hanle stay - tsomoriri stay - back to leh stay
    oct 1 - sham valley - mag hill - lamayuru - alchi - likir monastry - hall of fame - leh stay
    oct 2 - flights to home
    if it suits, you are welcome onboard with us. but prior to that, i will ask the other young couple about your joining with us. ( they may need some privacy ?? ) - we are 2 couples as of now sharing cost and you are a solo guy hope you got the point moreover, the itinerary was modified to suit their leave problems. so give me some more time to include you in ENJOYING THE TRIP ( primary ). sharing cost is secondary. we are in 40s pure veg from chennai but the other young couple is married a year ago- hope you got it. so we have to respect their privacy and permission to welcome you. so pl chk whether the hectic itinerary, dates, interest etc suits your wishes to enjoy ladakh. if all goes well we all shall meet at leh.
    happy and best wishes for your safe comfortable journey, strive for litter free ladakh. thanks for understanding
    warm regards
