    Dear Vargis,

    I need help on following counts:

    I have booked my ticket from Delhi-Leh-Delhi on 18th till 27th and returning on 28th morning flight. I am accompanied by my son.

    1. Now my wife, daughter, SIL and their 3.1/2 year son plan to join us on 21st till 24th (4 days). Clearly that is a very short period for a place like Leh-Ladakh. But due to some urgency they have to return back.

    Initially (me & my son), planned our itinerary as follows:
    D1 (18th Sep) - Leh arrival. Local visit & acclimatize
    D2 (19th Sep) - Zanskar, Indus sangam, magnetic hill etc
    D3 (20th Sep) - Travel to Pangong Lake. Stay and depart next day morning (Stay not booked. Need your help!)
    D4 (21st Sep) - Drive back and visit places on way back. (Places to see. Need your help!)
    D5 (22nd Sep) - Visit Nubra Valley. Stay that night (Need your advise whether Nubra 1st and then Pangong or vice versa)
    D6 (23rd Sep) -Return to Leh. Stay at Leh
    D7 (24th Sep) - Tso Moriri Lake. Stay overnight
    D8 (25th Sep) - See Ladakh festival
    D9 (26th Sep)- ??? (Need your help for planning!)
    D10 (27th Sep)- ??? (Need your help for planning!)
    D11 (28th Sep) - Catch flight at 10am

    Since other family members are joining us, can you please tweak the above program during their stay, so that they don't miss very important location. And it will also help me to book for camp stay wherever needed. IS IT ADVISABLE TO TAKE A 3.1/2 YEAR OLD TO HIGHER UPS AFTER 1 DAY ACCLATIMIZATION

    2. We shall be staying at WH Lha-Ri-Sa resort at Skara, Leh. Based on your suggested programme (wherever overnight stay, we won't opt Lha-Ri-Sa and book only for the days, where we will be at Leh

    3. Is my original program okay? Or first I visit Nubra and then Pangong. What do you suggest for D9 & D10?

    4. I have not booked any hotel/tent for overnight stay outside. Can you please suggest specific name (budget 2500-4000 on twin/additional bed sharing basis or 5000-8000 for family accommodation). Somebody scared me that after 2nd week, tents and stay facilities at Pangong & Nubra shall be moving back and availability is VERY RESTRICTED! Is it so???

    I have carved out the programme/information from your blogs, which are very informative in all senses!!!! Keep your public service alive.
    Would be really grateful if you help me out in managing the itinerary due to above change in my family joining for a shorter period

    Hello Mr. Ganpathy - Your family is landing in Leh on 21st and flying out on 24th? What time is there flight landing? And how are you traveling there locally? Private taxi?

    > My family is landing in Leh on 21st by 9AM
    > Their departure from Leh is on 25th early morning flight (7AM, 8.10AM or 8.25AM). Tickets not booked yet, since I am waiting for your confirmation on the itinerary.
    > Local travel. By private taxi only as there will be 5 adults and 1 child. I have not booked yet and look forward to your advise, if you have a reliable contact
    > Me/Son will be staying for almost 10 days (18th till 27th. 28th morning flight to Delhi).
    > Another option my wife was suggesting that she can be at hotel managing the kid, when we travel further up. My argument was, when she has come all the way to Leh, why don't she join us to pangong or nubra also. Your expert advise on this also!

    THEIR COMING FOR A 4 DAY TOUR TO LEH WOULD DEPEND ON WHAT YOUR ADVISE IS. The programme can be cancelled incase things are not working feasible due to short period as well as accompanying kid.

    Thanks in advance

    I agree with you Sir. She has come all the way to Ladakh so it does not make sense for her to stay back at the hotel. Your itinerary can be as below.

    D1 (18th Sep) - Leh arrival. Local visit & acclimatize. Arrange permits for both yourself and your family.
    D2 (19th Sep) - Leh to Kargil via Lamayuru. See Magnetic Hill, Indus Zanskar Confluence, Gurudwara Patthar Sahib, Lamayuru moon landscape, Buddha Statue etc
    D3 (20th Sep) - Kargil to Leh via Batalik. You will have to talk to your taxi driver about whether or not he will drive you on Batalik route.
    D4 (21st Sep) - Your family will arrive. Stay in Leh itself. Let them relax and acclimatize and visit Leh local places in evening.
    D5 (22nd Sep) - Leh to Nubra valley. Stay at Diskit
    D6 (23rd Sep) - Diskit to Pangong via Shyok road
    D7 (24th Sep) - Pangong to Leh via Chang La
    D8 (25th Sep) - Your family will fly out. You will stay in Leh city. See Ladakh festival
    D9 (26th Sep) - Leh to Tso Moriri
    D10 (27th Sep)- Tso Moriri to Leh
    D11 (28th Sep) - Catch flight at 10am

    Dear Vargis,
    Can you please clarify following:

    On Day-2 (19TH Sept) - Leh to Kargil via Lamayuru and see other places on the way
    D3 (20th Sep) - Kargil to Leh via Batalik.

    For night stays (pangong, nubra etc), should I book from Delhi itself NOW or book after I landed at Leh on 18th. Though I have seen options at online like makemytrip etc, I am not able to able to judge which is good or bad. Any approx idea of stay cost?

    1. You have to stay at Kargil and then next day to Leh via Batalik.

    2. September is not so crowded so you can book after reaching there. You may get good discounts. Stay at Nubra is not an issue at all. Ample guest house at cheap rate are available.

    3. You can book on the spot for Pangong or after reaching Leh.
