    Revised itinerary (From a friend of mine)

    Hi guys...I was speaking to one of the hotel guys for room today...he listened to our itinerary and was kind enough to point out some changes where we will cover all places and avoid acute mountain sickness. So here is the revised itinerary:

    Sept 7: Reach Chandigarh by air around 7.30, Drive Chandigarh to Manali, 8 hrs stay at Manali

    Sept 8 : Manali to sissu. 4hrs stay at sissu

    Sept 9: sissu to chichum via chandrataal. 9 hrs, stay at chichum

    Sept 10: chichum to Nako via Tabo. This day we LL be seeing komic, kaza, langza, kibber and a couple of more places. The hotel manager said that all places are nearby, so we can see all of them in a day. The riding time excluding sight seeing time is 4 hrs to tabo. I am adding another 5 hrs for sightseeing. It's a full day and packed day for us. Stay at Nako

    Sept 11: tabo to sangla, 6 hrs stay at Sangla

    Sept 12: sangla to mashobra, 6hrs. stay at club Mahindra courtesy at mashobra

    Sept 13 : mashobra to Chandigarh, 4 hrs and board flight

    Kindly let me know whether the first shared itinerary itself is achievable or need to relax a bit according to this itinerary ?

    Currently is there any issue because of 370 in Jammu & Kashmir, also will there be any problem if we hire zoom car and do the spiti circuit? Our travel dates are from Sep 7 to 13

    We are little worried because of 370 as we have already planned this trip
