Hi
We are a group of 6, Fun Loving, Laid Back, Lazy Desis from US and want to spend 7 days in the Himalayas starting 1st september. All of us are found of natural undisturbed beauty and we would not (or at max .5 km ) like to trek, camping should be find with minimal trekking. We will have our Car and Driver to take us around.
We are in a dilemma , weather we should do Spithi or Ladakh.
We were planning either to Fly to Kullu, spend one night in Manali and then drive to Shimla spending 2 nights at Kaza to see the Ki Monastery and Kibber Village then one night at Reckong Peo stopping at Khab, Tabo and Nako and one night at Narkanda than one night at Shimla.

Or we could go the other way towards Leh and fly back from there.

What do you guys suggest? Also is camping allowed in these places? Are their designated camp grounds? Can one drive to camp grounds or one has to trek?

Any help will be great,

Not a good plan for laid back holiday !

Why not go to Manali and stay there itself.
I did not fully understand the dread term "Terminal Illness" until I saw Terminal 1 D of Delhi Airport.

Acclimatisation required in Leh

Dear Friend,

Your plan for Himachal seems better because Leh is situated at the height of 10,000 feet plus and you will need to spend at least 3-4 days in acclimatisation.
Many people who are not accustomed to mountains develop mountain sickness and they have to be evacuated.
So if you are LAZI-DESIS then go in for your first option.
