Trip to Leh for 6 days/5 Nights from 23rd April 2014

Dear Members,

We are planning to visit Leh on 23rd April 2014 for 6 days and 5 nights. Before reaching Leh we had plan to have stop over at Srinagar for 4 days from where we would be flying to Leh. We are also planning to organize whole trip on our own as we don't want to take up any packages given from Hotels.

Can you help us plan places to be visited in Leh and surrounding during our stay and how should be plan our trip over there.

Regards

Hi !

As per me once you are in Leh, you can organize your trip yourself, depends how you will want to do the trips, i guess hiring shared jeep will be a good option, you can visit Pangong lake, tsomoriri lake, kardungla pass and diskit,

you will enjoy. Ladhak is beautiful

Dear Members,

Thanks for your prompt response. So what I understand here is that it would be best way to organize trips on day basis once we land in Leh.

Dear Bhavin,

Sunny has suggested good itinerary. But if possible make it 8 days trip. It will help you to proper acclimatize and spend more time at Nubra and Pangong.

Dear Sunny,

As suggested by you we can allocate 8-9 days for our trip to leh-Ladakh. Could you suggest an itinerary. We would like to take it easy and not try and do too many places just to say that we also visited this place. Besides we have our 9 yr old daughter with us. I am not keen to join any guided tours. Can one manage to organise it all by oneself.

Regards,

Sharad N

Sharadji,

Travel operator is not require for Ladakh trip. On 2nd day of your trip you will require to get permit, finalize taxi driver and will require to book accommodations for Nubra Valley, Pangong and Tso moriri. You can inform your hotel or visit Leh based booking companies for accommodations booking.

If you are planning to visit Tso moriri that I will suggest to travel Chumathang directly from Pangong. It will help you to reach Tso moriri in early morning and will be able to spend more time there.

Day-1: Arrival at Leh. Take Rest. Evening visit to Shanti Stupa and Leh Market. Overnight at Leh.

Day-2: Get Permit and after that visit Hemmis, Thikshey and Shey monestries. Overnight at Leh.
