    Hi Prashanth - The biggest hitch in your plan is self rental. Those are not allowed in Ladakh. You will have to rent a local taxi there.

    You probably won't need it but it is better to keep it. But plan the itinerary the way I suggested. It is better this way.

    Hello vargis bhai,

    Just thinking to head out in June end to Leh instead of September.

    I am planing to hire Mahindra TUV 300 which is mini SUV.

    My query is:-

    1. Can I do the whole circuit in TUV 300 in June month?
    2. I will be going solo, in case if I get a partner it's well and good. can I go solo in June month considering challenges.? Your advice please.

    Regards,
    Prashanth

    Dear Prashanth,

    1. Yes. You can do the whole circuit in June end. Mahindra TUV will be fine I think.
