    Start at 4-4:30 am from Manali. You will still likely encounter jam, but it would be comparatively less.

    Got my permits today. Following are the latest updates.
    1. Permits to Domestic travellers are now being given from Permit Office, TIC ( Tourist Information Center, near J&K Bank, Main Bazaar). Foreigners still need to go to DC office near Polo Ground.
    2. You have to fill the form online only, if you are applying in self. I am not sure about the process if you want to apply through an agent.
    3. Take printout of the online permit and carry copies along with you. One each for Nubra, Pangong, Tso morriri and Hanle.
    4. And yes permits are being given for Chushul, Tsagala, Loma,Hanle. They will sign and stamp your printouts and will take the required payments as mentioned in the portal.
    5. For Hanle, You will have to further go to DC office. Take a copy of the permit that you received from TIC and DC office will keep a copy and will further stamp your permit " permission to visit Hanle". That would make your permit process complete.
    6. Keep at least 3 copies of Hanle permit along with you while traveling.

    Book hotels at Srinagar and Manali, rest of the places should be fine. Apart from Leh, there is a petrol pump at Diskit. No fuel pumps between Leh and Tandi on the Manali - Leh Highway, though fuel is available in black.

    Yes, it is doable. Though the road is bad at quite a few places, so make sure to drive carefully. All the best and have fun.

    Road condition is always a mixed bag, good, bad and at point, terrible roads.
