Ladakh trip best plan – Short version.

Read this article for the detailed version. You can take a print out of the short version to carry along with you on the ride. This, according to me, is the best plan for a standard Ladakh trip, that includes Manali-Leh section, Nubra Valley, Pangong lake and Srinagar-Jammu section. If you feel something needs to be added or modified, do let me know in the comments. Do go through BCMTouring’s extensive list of articles for a better understanding of what you should expect on this ride, and how to best prepare for it.

  1. I need your advice on whether I should change my 390’s tyres to hard compounds with deeper treads for the ride from Manali to Leh. I am just a bit worried how the softer compounds will hold up against sharp rocks and wet mud.

    1. Absolutely Snehal. Even deep treads start fishtailing there, Metzelers would simply go bonkers! Change them for sure.

    1. Not much at all. Tents along the Manali-Leh highway cost between 150-500 bucks a night. We got the tent at Pangong for 600 bucks, others are available from 500 to 2000. Tents at Hunder are a bit costlier (3000-5000 a night), but then they are also quite luxurious, and you always have the choice to go back and stay at Diskit.
