    Hi Vargis bhai,
    I have applied for innerline permit and following routes are included among all 8 other routes.I have mentioned these specific routes cause just have to confirm that could I go from pangong to tso moriri directly via chusul route (mahe , sumdo ,namashang,karzok).If not then how can I go to tso moriri and tso kar via shortest best possible route so that I could save my time.
    1. Leh-Kharu-Changla-Durbuk-Tangtse-Lukung-Spangmik-Man Merak (pangong) upto Chushul and Loma Bend.
    2. Tangtse-Kargyam-Sato, Barma, Chushul.
    Secondly I want to hire a SUV from Leh city for 7 days with a driver for 2 days in nubra valley, 1 day in pangong ,2 days in tso moriri ,2 days in leh itself. Would it be costly if yes then please confirm the lum sum charges so that I could manage my budget.
    Should I give one more day to pangong or just one day is fine.
    I have my own tent.So I'm assuming that I wont face any trouble to pitch it at above mentioned places ?
    I've talked at Leh district office and they said that office remains open on Sunday also but till 1 pm.Please confirm ?
    I hope you would help me to clear my queries
    sorry for the trouble.
    Thank you

    Hi Vargas,
    I’m doing a similar trip to Ladakh.
    Can you recommend a Jeep driver/photography guide to Zanskar from Srinagar including Padum and Kargil - I will eventually go to Leh.

    1. Yes the routes are fine for traveling from Pangong to Moriri via Chushul
    2. Please take to Nasir in Leh @ 9906229203 about taxi and charges
    3. One day is fine
    4. Yes you can pitch your own tent
    5. Even I didn't know that it remains open on Sunday but that could be a recent update.

    Vargis Bro

    Need an suggestion. Can we do Pangong to Tso Moriri in a Wagon R which has a ground clearance of 165 MM.

    As for driving experience goes I am from Himachal and have been driving in the hills for past 20 Years.

    Yes you can Jitender Bhai ... There are a few really bad sections and water crossings in between but nothing that you wouldn't already have seen before getting to Pangong. If you were able to bring your WagonR to the lake, you can definitely drive it even further.

    Vargis Bhai,

    Below is the itinerary I am looking at

    16 Sep – Dharamsala to Srinagar
    17 Sep – Srinagar – Leh (Most people suggest 2 days for this route as it is quite scenic. But want to finish in a day so that we can visit more places in Leh.
    18 Sep - Apply for permits and Leh Local
    19 Sep – Leh to Hunder Via K Top
    20 Sep – Local around Hunder
    21 Sep- Hunder to Pangong Via Agam Shyok
    22 Sep – Pangong to Tso Moriri Via Chushul (Need advise if we have another route from Chushul to Mahe directly as seen in maps, or we have to take Tsaga, Loma, Nyoma Route only)
    23 Sep Tso Moriri to Pang/ Sarchu
    24 Sep Pang/ Sarchu to Manali

    Any suggestions you would like to make to the itinerary. Also would like to connect with you on call. Please advise if OK.
