Hi Vargis,

first of all, many many thanks for providing so much information to Ladakh spiti travellers like me.

I am planning a self drive trip to spiti and Ladakh in next week September 2021 and I have made following route plan after reading your blog / website. Please comment if this is doable and I have following questions. I will be in debt if your could provide some help.

Day 1 Nasik to Jaipur
Day 2 Jaipur to Narkanda / Sarharan
Day 3 Narkanda / Sarharan-Chitukul-Kalpa
Day 4 Kalpa-Nako-Gue (optional)-Tabo
Day 5 Tabo-Dhankar(optional)-Hikkim-Komic-Langza-Hikam-Kaza
Day 6 Kaza-Key-Kibber-Chandratal Lake
Day 7 Chandratal Lake-Jispa
Day 8 Jispa-Leh
Day 9 Leh
Day 10 Leh-Turtuk(optional)-Hunder
Day 11 Hunder-Pangong Lake Day
12 Pangong Lake-Chosul-Tso Moriri
Day 13 Tso Moriri-Sarchu
Day 14 Sarchu-Kullu

I have following two questions for this route
1. is Chitkul visit possible on route from Narkanda / Sarhan to Kalpa ??
2. is Tabo-Dhankar-Hikkim-Komic-Langza-Hikam-Kaza sensible to do in a day ?
3. is Leh-Turtuk-Hunder sensible to do in a day ??
4. is Pangong Lake-Chosul-Tso Moriri route operational?
5. how many permits still required in this tour after government scrapped interline permits ?
