My friend and I are planning to travel from Manali to Leh, preferably by jeep, beginning of august this summer. Feels like the more research I do.. the less I know how to plan it, so here are a few questions I need answers to:

1) it says in a guide book that the road northbound (Manali to Rohtang Pass) closes on Tuesdays. That would be a real bummer as we were thinking of starting the trip on a Tuesday... any news/info on this?

2) jeep rental, how does this work? Should we book in advance and where in that case? How easy is it to find others to share with? Does the jeep always come with a driver, or can we drive it ourselves? (I'd prefer the latter, but maybe I'm nuts?)

3) we plan to do the trip over three days and two nights; first night in Keylong / Jispa, second night in Sarchu (unless anyone knows of a better place at lower altitude for the second night). Any decent but good value tent accommodations (want to avoid the multiple floors expensive hotels)? Should we book this in advance as well...?

I know it's better to do the trip the other way around, i.e. from Leh to Manali, to avoid AMS, but since we are flying out from Leh, this won't be possible.

Many thanks in advance!

You need to explore Ladakh & Zanskar Forum.

The situations keep changing as per situation. You should keep yourself updating accordingly.

First of all you are in a wrong Forum. You should always post in a right Forum. I had suggested you to explore Ladakh & Zanskar Forum. You will find more attention there and will see a lot many members discussing on similar topic.

Regarding the closure of roads, the situations keep changing as per situation. Currently it is open on all days
