Ladakh Travel Tips please
Thanks for the fantastic travel guide. I'll agree with the others in saying that it is the best resource for info on ladakh on the net.
I'm based in bangalore and am planning a trip to Leh in the second week of aug. We're planning to fly to delhi first and then take an early morning flight to manali, spend a day there and then take a taxi to leh over 3 days. At the end, we'll drive from leh to srinagar and fly back from there.
We have around 10-12 days in all and I'd like to know what other places we should cover while we're there.
And some more questions
1) I read somewhere that flights to manali may see delays during the monsoons, but no info anywhere else about this. If anyone has any ideas, please let me know if flying to manali is a decent option since sitting through the night in a bus does not appeal to me. I did not find any sleeper buses plying this route, and would appreciate info regarding the same if anyone knows.
2) If anyone can suggest reliable homestays or tour operators, please let me know.
3) I'd also appreciate info on how to book hotels/ tents and/or if booking is required, and in how much advance.
4) Any info regarding the permits, how long it takes to get them and if it is possible to get them in advance, is also appreciated.
And if there's any other couple interested in joining us, please send me a message.
