Is this your day wise itinerary? If yes, then are you traveling on a mtoromotor or bicycle?
Not day wise.... of course! i am not an unflinching Robot O:) and being a human i need pause and repose to move forward.
Sorry bro i couldn't put it precisely. Well that's just my route plan that i intend to cover leisurely by taking up my sweet time to enjoy the ride and vistas along the way.

So time is no hurdle for me i have plenty to spend on this one.
I would try to cover as much distance as i could comfortably and without loosing a nap, the only thing i would like to get suggestions for:

1. if the above mentioned route plan is workable?
2. Accommodation/Camping sites on this route.
3. Fuel Availability on this route.
4. Chandrataal road status

Also if anyone would like to join.

Thanks

Your route plan is totally workable and since you have time at your disposal I would suggest to include Pin valley in the plan.
Hotel accommodation is easily available till Kalpa and chitkul though you should book in advance due to peak summer vacation period.
Fuel is available till reckong peo. Post that the only fuel pump is in Kaza. Though fuel in black would be available at Nako and Tabo and some other places.
Chandrataal should open by then, but keep an eye on its status. Connect with Jamaica as he sets up his camp there.

It isn’t possible to tell you what is doable, what isn’t, unless you mention the number of days you will be taking to cover these places or better yet, a day wise itinerary.

After all, all these places are connected by road and should be accessible in June.
