    Hello Atul Bhai,

    You must spend some time at the lake, stay for a night there, do not go back the same day else you will just be driving, driving and driving for 10-12 hours.

    Hello Atul Bhai, Since you will be with family, I am assuming that you will rent a private taxi there. You can plan the trip in the following manner.

    10 - Leh, rest, acclimatization and arrange permits
    11 - Leh to Nubra
    12 - Nubra to Pangong
    13 - Pangong to Leh
    14 - Take a day long drive on Srinagar Leh highway, see Indus zanskar river confluence, magnetic hill, gurudwara patthar sahib
    15 - Return

    Let me know if you need a contact to rent taxi in Leh
