I'd avoid Leh to Srinagar since there is a lot of political instability in Kashmir.

Hi…the streets conditions of Manali to Leh or even in that case from Leh to Srinagar is not good. It’s a bumpy and traffic merging roads, and to more the local people join the road from nowhere.
If you’re planning a road trip respective destination with lots of fun, I would recommend you a cycle trip. As I’d already been to a road trip on cycle from Manali to Leh with some friends. It was fun to travel on cycle, almost all have MTB cycles.
Have a safe and happy travelling.
