ON very short time crunch (killing me) in India this summer. Flying into Dehli and I want to make it over to Leh (through Varanasi, Rishikesh, Dharmsala) in 2 WEEKS. Is this insane?

does anyone know this route? Any advice about flying back from Leh? I know I need to book airfare now and may have missed my opp. anyway. Leaving for Delhi on the 25th of June.

Thanks you guys.

Since you have a very short time at your disposal, I suggest the following:

Fly from Delhi to Leh. Three days in Leh.
Day 4 fly to Jammu. From Jammu reach Dharamsala by rail/road combination, via Pathankot.
Day 6 evening leave Dharamsala for Shimla.
Day 7 evening leave Shimla for Rishikesh.
Day 9 evening leave Rishikesh for Haridwar, catch overnight train for Varanasi.
Day 10 evening reach Varanasi
Day 13 evening leave for Delhi by overnight train
Day 14 arrive Delhi morning

The Delhi-Leh and Leh-Jammu flights may not run daily and are subject to weather conditions, so you may have to do a bit of jugglery to accomodate your itinerary.

Some Poss. Changes

Thanks for getting back to me...very helpful.
I need to do a quick stop in Agra but that shouldn't take too much time (esp. if I do it early AM and try to get out of town again.) I expect complications during the traveling though...who knows.

If I go up to Dharamsala and do NOT go to Leh am I missing out big time? I dont' want to rush any of my experience and have a feeling that I might not make it up there. BUT, if I do make it up there I can fly back to Delhi which saves a lot of time. Just brainstorming.
