Hi Anil Aggarwal

Thanx for your prompt response..

I will be travelling by road from Jammu to Leh via Srinagar along the Srinagar-Leh Highway and my departure would be by road along Leh-Manali highway..Kashmir is not in our itinerary, so we are not interested in Gulmarg, Pahalgam..

Awaiting Your reply.

Regards

Hello mr. Das

Day1- arrive jammu early- start your journey to leh - 350 kms approx and travelling time is 11 hrs..if you start late from jammu then can halt at kargil-enroute can visit lamayuru..

Day2, 3 and 4- local sightseeing of leh

Minimum 2 days required for acclimatization..you mentioned already that you don't want to visit monestry..but I strongly recommend to visit thiksey monestry..

Day5- to nubra valley -hundar via khardung la - khalsar

Before hundar there is a beautiful village diskit- well known- do visit diskit monestry..night stay at hundar/diskit

Day 6- nubra valley-come back leh in eve.

Day 7- visit to pangong lake via chang la-darbuk-tangste - stay a night

You can visit tso moriri lake which is the highest altitude lake in india..but roads aren't good, accommodation are few with no major facility..no electricity..also need inner line permit to visit-but a very mesmerizing place..

Day 8- reach leh in eve-hotel stay

Day 9- leave early for manali via sarchu -rohtang pass- 475 kms - travelling time 12 hrs- can also take halt in keylong..night in keylong

Day 10- to manali via rohtang pass-visit rohtang- manali hotel stay

Day11- manali local sightseeing

Day12- early for delhi

Some must visits are-

Pangong lake,tsomoriri lake, nubra valley, confluence of zanskar and indus river, magnetic hill, journey of zanskar river-driving along the river to view some best scenic beauties..

Hi

Very nice location raised by mr. Anilagrawal..a very beautiful village situated in nubra valley (shyok valley) beside shyok river..very picturesque..

There are 3 4 villages like bogdan, shakshey , and rest I don't remember now..but was spend some great days there..foreign tourist needs inner line permit to visit nubra valley and turtuk village..but for indians, can get simple permission from magistrate office, which is in leh..

If you decide to go nubra valley , then don't forget to keep 4 5 copies of permit with you..one copy you will need to submit at khardung-la pass and one at hundar/turtuk checkpost, same while returning..

You can also visit panamik, via khalsar..again a very beautiful place..
