One doesn't wish it but a few deaths may help.
Every year people running a similar itinerary on the Gokyo route in Nepal commit suicide unintentionally.

Hi
You have mentioned nubra on third day can be challenging in terms of AMS.

though it passes to Khardungla but it's lower then leh then why it is so challenging and we need more time to acclimatize

the height is not a problem, given that it is the same/lower than Leh but you really ought to rest on day 3. My regime is to arrive by plane on day 1, do nothing on day 2, stroll about on day three, travel on day 4

Tourists do sometimes die on Khardongla from the altitude. Rare but it happens every year.

Its not just us...........

I got this from Go when I confirmed my flight:


Please find Guidelines for precautions and Assistance to be taken when flying to LEH:

To ensure that you have adequate time for acclimatization and sightseeing, plan your tour for at least 7 days.
The first day (day you reach Leh) must be spent relaxing in and around your Hotel room. Strictly avoid any urge to go sightseeing even if the site is just a few hundred meters away.
Drink lot of water it keeps your tummy fit (you tend to drink less water and may result in dehydration). Preferably drink boiled, sterilized or packaged drinking water.
Carry moisturizer, lip balms, sun screen lotions and skin nourishing creams in your travelers kit.
Use sunglasses when outdoors.
Carry adequate quantity of drinking water along before moving out for sightseeing.
Preferably spend at least 3 days in Leh before you move out for visit to various destinations like Pengong lake or Tsomoriri lake or mountain passes like Khardung La, Chang La etc.
Carry medicines to cater for minor ailments like headache, nausea, vomiting, upset tummy or constipation as prescribed by your family doctor (Dispirin, Paracetamol and Oral Rehydration Salt (ORS) etc).
Carry windcheaters, woolen clothing, thick socks, gloves, scarves, a hat or woolen cap, sturdy boots or walking shoes, as temperatures may dip to near zero in nights even in summers.
Carry few packs of biscuits and chocolates along to cater for emergencies if you get stuck during a trip or trek.
Be vigilant for symptoms in small children.
Avoid over eating (it sorts out most of gastric troubles).
Do not consume Alcohol
Avoid smoking.
Do not over exert even if it means skipping visit to a few sites.
Do not hesitate or question medical authorities if advised to evacuate.
Do take assistance from Indian Army sponsored medical aid posts located even along remote routes in case of any unusual symptom. All that the brave soldiers ask from you in return is a gracious ‘Thank-you’.

Thank you for choosing GoAir as your preferred airline

Hello,

this is my first post on this forum. I didn't want to create a new thread for it since I guess you get a lot of "Ladakh itinerary threads". So I hope to get some responses in this one.

On Sept. 1st I'm starting my first trip to India. I'm flying from Germany to Delhi. While I'm staying the first whole day (2.9.) in Delhi I already booked a flight to Leh for 3.9. Now I have a few questions about my Ladakh trip and hope to get some answers.

This is my (planned) itinerary:

3.9.: Flight Delhi->Leh; Resting at hotel
4.9.: Local sight seeing in Leh
5.9.: Leh->Hunder (Overnight stay)
6.9.: Hunder->Turtuk (Overnight stay)
7.9.: Turtuk->Leh
8.9.: Leh->Pangong Tso->Leh
9.9.: Sightseeing around Leh
10.9.: Flight Leh->Delhi

1. Is this itinerary ok? Should I adjust a few things? I know that things can change once I'm there (feeling sick etc.)

2. Do I need to book the trips in advance with a travel agency? Or can I do it once I'm in Leh?

3. Any recommended hotels to stay in Leh? Low to mid budget

Thank you in advance!
