    Hi,

    We are planning a trip to Leh from Sept28 (starting from Srinagar) to Oct 6 (Ending at Leh and Flyout next day). Need help is planning itinerary to Nubra + Pangong lakes, we have 4 days for these parts and want to cover below places but as you can see I dont think its possible to visit them all. BTW we are planning to use private car (3 people) from Leh.

    1) Leh to Hunder/Diskit
    2) Turtuk
    3) Panamik/Warshi
    4) Diskit to Pangong
    5) Pangong to Leh

    We are reaching Leh late Saturday and planning to take Sunday as rest day, hence we have to get ILP on Monday morning and then start to Hunder, so this cuts short few hours (as office opens at 10AM)

    Tentative Itinerary

    1) Initial plan is to stay overnight at Turtuk (then we have to skip Panamik/warshi route). Is this better?

    2) what is the latest state of Diskit to Pangong viz Shyok Road? Our itinerary depends on this, if this is not good then coming back to Leh and going to Pangong will cost us an extra day? (Not choosing Wari-La).

    Day1: Leh to Hunder (Starting Late to get ILP)
    If we get enough time, try to driver till Panamik and Back to Hunder.
    Day2: Hunder to Turtuk (Explore Turtuk, Stay Overnight)
    Day3: Turtuk to Pangong (Viz Shyok)

    Any suggestions or improvements is much appreciated?

    Your plan is good. Starting late for Hunder may not leave much time to go till Panamik. Shyok road is OK to travel on as of now, shouldn't be a problem at all.

    One more things related to transport, we are 3 guys planning to take a private cab. Do you think we should take a dedicated private cab to cover: Leh-Hunder-Turtuk-Pangong-Leh, or should we take a private cab "drop only" till each day night stay?

    One more question: In the first itinerary our original plan was to come back to leh and do a 2 day trip to tsomirori: But after reading http://vargiskhan.com/log/pangong-tso-to-tso-moriri-travel-guide/ , should we directly go to tsomirori and use the extra day to cover Hanle? should we take a private vehicle which covers leh-hunder-turtuk-pangong-hanle-tsomirori? 5 days..or would it be too much?

    Take a dedicated cab for the entire route. It would be better and convenient that way.

    Yep. I will recommend doing it . Hire a private cab and take the full circle back to Leh covering all of it.

    Thanks Vargis, do you know how much they charge for the full round trip approximately? As we are going in 1st week of october its end season and i can use that figure as a guidance to bargain? Also do we need 4x4 for that road or any SUV with good ground clearence will do?

    You can try talking to Nasir in Leh @ 9906229203. He runs his own cab there and can give you the cost estimate. He is a good fellow and if the deal sounds OK, you can even consider hiring him for the trip.
