    Hi Vargis bhai,
    I have been following your posts for a while now. We have planned for Ladakh trip from 1st of July. We have our tickets booked from Bangalore to chandigarh on July 1st and we have flight to catch from Chandigarh to bangalore on 9th afternoon. Our present plan is to take Chandigarh-Srinagar-Ladakh-Manali-Chandigarh route now. We are 7 friends traveling and will be taking an Innova from Chandigarh for our travel. 5 of us would be driving and hence, driver fatigue should not be as big an issue as it would be for other travellers. The car is a white board one and hence there should be no issue with the taxi union as well. We will be carrying our camping kit with us. Keeping these things in mind, could please share a plan for our trip.

    Thanks in advanve

    Hi Prithvi Bhai,

    Do you intend to start on 11th itself or from 12th?

    Oh sorry, I read that 1st as 11th. What I meant to ask was that would you land in Chandigarh and start on 1st itself or do you need to stay there on 1st arranging the cab and start on 2nd? Asking so that I can suggest an itinerary accordingly.

    Prithvi Bhai in that case you can journey in the following manner, there will be some non-stop driving involved.

    4th - Start driving, you should reach Srinagar sometime in the morning of 5th.
    5 - Continue driving till Drass or Kargil (if you can make it) and stay there for the night
    6 - Drass to Leh
    7 - Leh to Sarchu
    8 - Sarchu to Manali
    9 - Start by like 5 AM from Manali and you should reach Chandigarh by noon, well in time to return the car and catch your flight.

    Bhai, we will be on 1st in Chandigarh! There seems to be a confusion there:) and how safe is it to travel via Srinagar and Anantnag in July given the present condition in srinagar and what are places to avoid?
