    Walaikum As-Salam Zeeshan Bhai,

    1. I woudl advise stay at Gulmarg as well. Srinagar to Gulmarg and return next day. Same way for Pehalgam. This way the joruney will not be too hectic for your elders and you will be able to enjoy more. Both Gulmarg and Pehalgam are definitely worth a day's stay.

    2. Srinagar to Kargil will easily eat up a day, leaving not much time for sightseeing at Sonamarg. There is not much to see at Sonamarg anyways except for the natural beauty on the route. The nearest attraction is Thajiwas Glacier and that needs at least 4-5 hours to cover.

    3. On the day you reach Leh, stay there and take rest. Do not go anywhere, you will reach by late evening anyways.

    4. Yes, Nubra valley is to be broken in two days. Go to Diskit, stay there and return next day. 2 days journey will not leave you much time to see around places but sand dunes and double hump camels in Hunder are worth seeing. You can also pay a visit at the Diskit Monastery.

    5. Leh to Pangong and back on same day is way too long a journey. I will suggest breaking it in 2 days.

    Can you add about 3-4 days more to the trip?

    JazakAllah Vargis Bhai !
    Thank you for your reply ...
    Regarding your suggestion about Sonmarg I have seen great reviews about glacier and zero point ... So I would like to do Sonmarg rather than skipping it.
    As you suggested about adding days, suppose if I reach Srinagar on 28 April 2018, can you please design itiernary for me considering all the major places I have mentioned above.

    Thanks ... Awaiting your reply

    Allah Hafiz
