    I will definitely recommend staying overnight at Pangong. If the driver is bringing the permits along then yes, you can do Tso Moriri on the way but then in all probability, you will be suffering from AMS there.

    Hello Vargisji

    I have gone a bit back and forth with the driver and itinerary. You were right we can't go to Tso Moriri directly as we will need permits and he was saying the car from Manali cannot go to Tso Moriri. He was instead saying he can take us to Tso Kar which is the other side of Tso Moriri which I don't think sounds great.

    We are now considering your initial recommendation:

    27th Delhi
    28th Delhi
    29th Kullu to Jispa - o/n in Jispa
    30th Jispa to Leh - o/n in Leh
    31st Sham Valley tour - o/n in Leh
    1st Leh to Nubra - o/n in Nubra/Turtuk
    2nd Nubra to Panamik - o/n in Nubra
    3rd Panamik to Pangong - o/n in Pangong
    4th Pangong to Tso Moriri - o/n in Tso Moriri
    5th Tso Moriri to Leh - o/n in Leh
    6th Fly back to Mumbai early morning

    Do you think this is doable or is this very hectic. The driver will be arranging all permits so we don't need to worry about anything.

    I realise we are missing out Hanle. What do you recommend - Hanle or Tso Moriri. Is there any way to fit both? Can we do Hanle and Tso Moriri on 4th and 5th? Any chance? I don't think so reading the info.

    Thanks heaps for your help.

    Regards

    Chandni

    Hello Chandni Ji - The only long journey will be on 4th, from Pangong to Moriri. Pushing in Hanle will be tough unless you are ready to give up Panamik. I will recommend that you keep the itinerary as it is. You will travel through Chushul route and skipping Hanle won't mean missing much. It is more of a stop over for the night for people who want to do the journey in 2 days.

    Thank you Vargisji

    Will skip Hanle then. No point trying to accommodate everything and not enjoying anything.

    When I say hectic I also mean we are traveling everyday and are not taking it easy ever. We don't have any breaks in Leh city. Are we missing out anything in Leh city? Let us know if we are.

    The drive has been recommending to drop Tso Moriri. I read it is highly recommended and sometimes even more than Pangong Tsao because it's less commercial than Pangong Tsao. What's your recommendation.

    Regards

    Chandni

    Hello Chandni Ji

    To be honest, a trip to Ladakh is actually on the road. Just yesterday someone asked me "Accha vahan jaake aur kya karna hai" and I replied saying " Kuchh nahi karna, bas sadak naapni hai ... Saari sightseeing bas chalte chalte hi hai"

    So no, you are not really missing out anything. You can pay an evening visit to Leh Palace, Shanti Stoopa and shop a bit in the Leh market and that is pretty much it. You can buy something for me as well if you would like to :) Just kidding

    Don't skip Moriri. Someone just returned from Leh and in his words "Moriri better thi ... Pangong par toh mela laga hua tha"

    Then also the fact that who knows when will you be in Leh next. So why miss anything when you can cover it, right? You do not want to be saying "I wish we had gone to Moriri as well" 6 months later ....

    Hello Vargisji

    Firstly apologies for the super late response. Things have been too busy lately.

    Thanks for the perfect response. Sadak naapni hai is the best bit.
    Well sticking with this plan now. Most bookings are done. Just the hotel at Tsomoriri to be booked now.

    Thanks heaps for your help.

    And buying a present for you toh banta hai. I would love you. Thank you for your help.

    Best regards

    Chandni
