Hello fellow travelers, I was hoping you guys can help me with planning my trip, here is what I have 14 Days
I'm in Bangalore, the idea is to go Bang-Delhi-Manali-Kullu- Parvathi valley-Leh (not particularity in same order, this is based on google maps)
Here are my questions
1. Would 14 days be good enough?
2. How many days would you suggest for each location.
3. Travel dates (I was aiming for end of September 20+) is this is a good travel date

Thanks in advance

To answer your Q 1
Are you considering travel by air to delhi? else you would be consuming a lot of your vacation days in travelling from banglore to manali and back from manali to banglore. Which I suppose is not the real intent.

Estimate how many days you have in hand after manali and then try to come up with an itineray from manali - leh and back.

for Q 2
this would depend on your mode of transport and your interest.
Read on acclimitization on the leh-zanskar section. You would require ideally 3 days from manali to leh if you go by a bike/car/bus. I think can be done in 2 days too.

Q 3
Sep should be good - check out the weather conditions in LEh and also the festivals.

Two days for the Manali-Leh route is better than three , if you are thinking of a third night halt between Darcha and Leh : there is no alternative for the third night even close to safety guidelines .

Some pointers here : Sleepless in Sarchu

Yes, I actually intended 3 travel days not night halts actually.
Day start from manali and Day 3 reach Leh.
