    Dear Sir,

    We are planning for leh in late August, 19 from kolkata by Air & road. We may fly to Srinagar, then take aroad trip to leh & will fly back from Leh. We need your valuable suggestions on

    1. Whether the timing is good for the visit ? OR we plan for September.
    2. Whether the flow of the trip is fine (i.e., Moving from Srinagar to Leh & back from leh is better than fly in to leh & back from Srinagar after the road trip)
    Is there any change in cost for transportation in these two routes?

    Please provide us the itinerary also.
    Thanks in advance.

    Hello Shounak,

    1. Timing is OK. September would be better even.
    2. No, flying in to Srinagar and then flying out of Leh is better. There will not be any difference in terms of cost but it will be easier in terms of altitude sickness.

    Good Morning Sir..Thanks again..

    We are a team of 6 members (5 Male + 1 Lady + 1 kid [ 4 Yrs old]) and was planning for a common trip as per the following flow:

    1. Kolkata -Srinagar-Leh (road trip) - leh - pangong - Nubra-Turtuk-Leh (fly back from Leh). Total 9 day trip.
    2. We do need to hire private taxi.

    Another very silly type question : The flight fare from Leh - Delhi seems to be very costly. Can you please suggest any alternative.

    Thanks

    Good Morning Mr. Dasgupta,
    .
    You will need to hire two taxis then. One for Srinagar to Leh and then another one for sightseeing in Ladakh. Your Srinagar taxi will not be allowed to travel around in Ladakh. For 9 days there is really no other alternative. You can wait and see if the rates drop.

    Your itinerary can be like below.

    1. Srinagar to Drass / Kargil
    2. Drass / Kargil to Leh
    3. Leh
    4. Leh to Diskit
    5. Diskit to Pangong
    6. Pangong to Hanle
    7. Hanle to Karzok
    8. Karzok to Leh via Tso Kar
    9. Fly Out

    Please make sure that you ask your Srinagar driver to pick from the airport itself so you can be on your way immediately.

    Sir..Greetings..
    We have booked the flight..We are arriving at Srinagar on 31 August,19 at 9 am. As per the plan, we will start our journey towards leh right from the Airport. As we will have almost an overlight journey from kolkata, may we stay at Dras rather than Kargil on Day1. Next day, we may move from Dras to Lamayuru..Then leh in Day3 after the sightseeing at lamayuru & Alchi.
    Please suggest on the following points:
    1. Planning for these 3 days are ok or not.
    2. If we can stay at dras or near by, can you please suggest a few budget hotels at that location.
    3. Same request for Lamayuru..
    4. How we can book taxi from Srinagar.

    Thanks

    Hello Mr. Dasgupta,

    1. Yes, Planning is OK
    2. My suggestion would be that you arrive at the place, find a hotel per liking and negotiate on the spot deal.
    3. Same for Lamayuru
    4. Talk to Faisal in Srinagar at 9596410670.
