    I've been to Ladakh in 2008 (with friends on motorbike), and now plan to go along with family. We have kids and will be traveling in a four-wheeler this time. This is how I've planned to move:

    Basically want to cover three major routes Nubra Valley, Pangong Tso and Lamayuru (en-route Srinagar).
    It's bit of squeeze since I'm assuming covering Nubra to Pangong in a day. I read up about the direct route via Wari La but it may not be very accessible. Would you recommend it? It is possible to reach from Pangong to Nubra via Leh (normal route) if we start early?
    Alternatively, we'll have to do Pangong to Kargil in a day, while stopping at Lamayuru for a min. time (we're ok skipping the monastery altogether)
    Lastly, our flight from Srinagar to Mumbai is at 3.30 PM, so have to reach airport by 2 PM. Is it possible to reach from Kargil to SXR airport by 2 PM if we start say at 5 PM? Alternatively we'll have to stay the night at Sonmarg/Drass.
    Do you see any other way to better desgin the itinerary from start to finish?

    Hello Sid - Last I heard, both the direct routes from Nubra to Pangong were closed so you may not be able to cover those. If the road is open at the time of your arrival, you may do it or else you will have to return to do Leh - Nubra - Leh on the same day. You cannot do Pangong to Kargil on the same day, way too long. Your flight is on 21st itself at 2 PM?
