First of all, would like to know how many days you have in hand?
Secondly, any specific reason to climb to Leh via Manali - I would prefer to climb up by Srinagar covering Amritsar on the way to Srinagar and climb down by Manali completing a circuit.
And visiting Agra in return journey. Then Agra to Nagpur via Sagar and then Nagpur - Hyd - Cochin.
Will post a route map.
