This is doable. Personelly saying, staying in Nubra for 3 days is not that worth. Its up to you.

Another thing about the routes Leh-Nubra-Pangong-Tso Morriri-Sarchu-Manali, hell of a ride far more than 1000 kms!!!!! You need to carry a lot of fuel. Roads are not good, some places roads not exists, you need to take permits mentioning the routes, your driving skills will get tested :) From Pangong to Tso Morriri, Chumathang, its a beautiful place!!!

Thanks for your response.

We are hiring innova. I think that person will take care of fuel :P

And Nubra is for two days only.

Is this plan Ohk in terms of acclamatization?

Its ok in acclimatization point of view. I suggest to cut the trip into two, I mean Leh-Nubra-Wari La- Pangong-Leh, then Leh-Tso Morriri-Sarchu-Manali.

1) In the first day, you're covering Shey and Thiksey, while also moving towards the Sham valley side. I suppose it would be better covering Alchi and Likir along with Hall of Fame, as they'd be towards the same direction as Magnetic Hill

2) 2 nights is a little too much in Nubra Valley

3) The Pangong - Moriri route is not easy in terms of quality of the road; maybe you can have a rethink on the same.

Any part of the Manali-Leh road , starting with the Rohtang La , can go out for a few days - from mid-September. Plan buffer days , and gear up for cold nights near 5000 meters if the weather turns.
