    Hi Varghis,
    Nice job with the blog and stuff. Read several of your articles and they are of great help.
    I am visiting Leh in October. 12th to 21st by air. and then travel locally by bike.
    I have been to Leh earlier as well, in 2011 via Manali-Leh-Srinagar route by bike.
    Only this time I am traveling alone.
    My flight lands early morning and I am planning to get acclimatised the day 1, taking permit and stuff and local sight seeing. Day 2 – i am planning to visit Hemis national park and visit a few monasteries and getting acclimatized even more
    Day 3 – start early and leave for Nubra
    Stay nubra overnight.
    Day 4 – leave for Pangong. Stay pangong overnight. I have heard there is a space observatory near pangong. Planning to visit that too. Do you think there will be an issue in this plan?
    Day 5 – buffer
    Day 6 – reach back Leh
    Day 7- leave early for Tso Moriri
    Stay overnight at Tso Moriri
    Day 8- leave for Leh
    Day 9 – local sight seeing, maybe Hemis national park again as I am a wildlife enthusiast.
    Day 10- flight to Delhi

    I am not rushing to go leh-nubra-pangong-Tso Moriri
    I want to visit leh atleast once, either coming back from nubra or after pangong.

    Do you think this plan is feasible and good?
    Thanks!

    Hi Gurpreet - Your plan seems OK but how exactly will you be traveling around after landing in Leh? The observatory is actually in Hanle, about a day's travel from Pangong Lake.

    Thanks for your reply.
    I am planning to rent a motor bike after landing in Leh.
    Observatory plan is not final. I will chick it f there is no time.

    If you are on a bike then it is doable. You can also plan it like below rather than coming back to Leh and then going to Moriri. That way you can cover the observatory in between.

    Pangong to Hanle
    Hanle to Karzok (Moriri)
    Karzok to Leh
