my wife & I are planning to visit to leh this July.
Dates are a bit flexible, (unless something unavoidable comes up) for about 15 days.

We will be starting from Surat & reaching Delhi & plan to take up a Volvo ( Rajnational express) the best option to reach Manali.

Thereafter, prefer to hire a taxi on sharing basis, ensuring that it takes 2 days reach to Leh along with night halt at sarchu/keylong.

I called up a tour operator & Taxi union stand in Leh to figure out the details & they said a sharing taxi would cost 1500 per head & they start at 2 AM in the night & reach the destination by 6 PM.
I am least interested in doing the Manali Leh highway in such a hush neither wanna use bus service for this route. It dosent make of sense of spending so much time & money not being able to enjoy the scenic beauty.

Lets form a small group of like minded or adventurous ppl & hire a Taxi from Manali to Leh, stretched over two days.

Similar such trip can be planned for sightseeing in & around Leh by hiring a Taxi & sharing the costs.


The intinerary can be worked out.
"PPl looking for leh trip on shared travel costs basis OR self driven vehicle basis, pls write back to me, if interested

Hi Ashish,

So far there are 2 of us who would be going to Leh via Manali.

We are starting from delhi on July-5 to Manali and then with 1-day stay in Manali, we plan to start for Leh on July-8 and reach Leh with a night halt.

Our plan in Leh is confirmed and you can join us in the trip. That way we can all share the cost. We will be staying in a Guest House in Leh with One night stay at Nubra and another at Pangong.

Do mail me back at rupam(sot)gupta(at)airtel(dot) in if you are interested.

Smile Hemis festival + Pangong Tso

Hi!

I'm glad I bumped into your post and learned about the Hemis festival! We are landing in Leh early in the morning on the 12th. The festival is a must (let's see though if going there would "interfere" with our acclimatisation process).

In addition, we are definitely planning to visit Pangong Tso. Therefore, I would be interested in knowing more about your plans for Lower Ladakh -> Pangong Tso -> Leh. Such a small tour would be nice to do. I assume you're going to hire a car from Leh for the trip? What about accommodation on the road?

Also Nubra has also been on our minds...
