As I assume staying in keylong is must before reach leh
Manali is useless if you are looking for acclimatization as its Not high enough. Manali to keylong is 4-5 hours, why don't you try to reach there on day one itself. Don't take AMS lightly. Hope you are aware of diamox usage. Locals also recommend chewing raw garlic cloves for acclimatization.

In August , peak rains and peak tourism ? That would require a lot of luck , in no way certain that you’ll reach even Rohtang top. I did reach Keylong in just under six hours once , and was amazed by it . This was in perfect conditions though : winter , dry road and very little traffic.

Next year this should be possible with the opening of the Rohtang tunnel.

Maybe it was luck then. We started the ascent on our bikes at 16:15 and reached keylong at 21:45 or so. This includes driving in rain and almost an hour spent for permit checking and breaks.

Bikes are faster , and OP has never mentioned bikes. A poster on TA today mentions having just done it in apparently good conditions : four hours to Rohtang top , including the break in Marhi. I’ve gone thru lot slower runs - just wait until it really starts to rain , and the Gulaba mudbath opens again...

A lot less , but not a total stop. The landscape is still green beyond Keylong , quickly turning in to high altitude desert from Darcha.
