Acclimatisation is essential. Plan on doing nothing on your first day and take it easy on the second day and begin to do a bit more on day 3. Spend the first 3 days around Leh or Alchi (slightly lower than Leh).

Do NOT attempt Pangong LAke on day 2. You are going up to over 5300m over the pass at Chang La. and Pangong Lake is over 4200m. This is a recipe for altitude sickness. You need at least 4 days acclimatisation before tackling altitudes like this.

Do Nubra valley on days 4 & 5.This will give you plenty of time to acclimatise before tackling the long drive and Khardung La. Although Khardung La is over 5300m, the Nubra valley is 'only' about 3000m.

Tso Morri is around 4600m.

In the time available to you, you need to cut out either Pangong Lake or Tso Morri.

Thanks for your response. Thanks Pradeep88 and kashmir111 also for the details.

Yes, I am aware of acclimatization and also that we need to spend longer than the current thoughts but there are practical limitations. "been there" is not a tag we want and we are returning travelers and believe in limiting our stay for more meaningful stay rather just a sight seeing.

If this means, we will have to add more days, so be it. just for explanation, we have been to Sikkim and had spent 2 weeks there as we felt, we will not be able to "return" there so easily but Ladakh is one such place where returning and covering more would actually be fun.

Thanks everyone once again and appreciate it.

Any idea on the budget?

I was responding to EESW and thought will appear as such. So sorry EESW, It was not intended.

I know the issue with height and how it can affect you but it is always good to take advice as new place and new heights can bring new complications.

Thanks a lot...
