    Salam Vargis,

    Mainnah here from Malaysia. This few month i frequently read your blog as reference for my trip to Ladakh. A lot of knowledge, info and tips collected, thanks to you. I may have a rushing itinerary ever since i accidentally book earlier flight ticket from Leh to Delhi. In whatever condition i need to reach Leh from srinagar. Here is my Plan.

    15sept
    KL - Delhi

    16sept
    Delhi - Srinagar reach 07.25am
    sightseeing srinagar city

    17Sept
    Bus Srinagar - Leh (overnight kargil)

    18sept
    Reach Leh

    19sept
    Leh - Pangong Lake

    20Sept
    Leh-Delhi (flight)

    21Sept
    Agra

    22Sept
    Delhi - KL

    i have some different route in my mind beside above, my question are :

    1. On 16Sept, i plan to go to sonamarg with overnight stay. i may no be able to catch morning bus, the only option is share cabs or taxi to sonmarg. is there any buses from Sonmarg to Lamayuru, if i plan to lamayuru the next morning? (17Sept)
    if yes where should i wait for the buses, and what time?

    if this is possible

    2. on 17Sept, i plan to stay overnight in Lamayuru. Going to Leh on 18Sept, is there any bus to Leh?
    if yes where should i wait for the buses, and what time?

    3. PAP permit, if we are 3 of us. all of us need to apply for the permit online or only one person should apply?

    i am sorry for a creepy question, need your help and info for this matter. if i can proceed with my second itinerary, i can spend another night in Leh instead of only 1night in Leh according to my first itinerary.
    but if my second itinerary is not possible, i will proceed with the first option.. we are 3person so we are quiet budget

    Walaikum As-Salam Mut Mainnah,

    Thank you for your encouraging words, I am glad that the information was of help. A few things to your plan.

    1. You will have to add a day of stay in Leh in order to arrange permits. You cannot head staight to Pangong the next day.
    2. There is no public transport that can bring you back from Pangong the same day. You will have to stay there for the night or rent a motorcycle.
    3. Yes you can stay at Sonamarg. There are several buses you can find throughout the day as Sonamarg is hardly 2-3 hours journey from Srinagar.
    4. There is no other bus apart from the ones that travel from Sriangar to Leh. For getting from Sonamarg to Lamayuru and then to Leh, you will have to wait and board this bus or either look for a shared taxi at these towns.
    5. All your names would have to be on PAP. This will be arranged by the travel agent.

    Walaikum As-Salam and You are welcome brother. Itinerary looks Ok now. Yes you will get a hotel in Sonamarg but finding one in budget could sometime be a problem. Shared taxi shouldn't be a problem though.
