Need help to plan Darcha - Padum route

Hello everyone,

Has any BCMTian traveled this route ?
Im planning to travel this route in June 2021 end.
If anyone has done this route please mention how many days it will take and also provide info on suitable places to stay and food.

TIA.

Darcha to Char is showing on Google Map only.

Darcha to Char


Road is already built but problem is that bridges and Passes are having snow and
road is damaged in winters due to landslides / snow / water etc.
 
This route is not that easy in summers.

People have done it but can't say anything about the road conditions in June now.


Please check given link :
Darcha–Padum Road built
Satinder ji, I know its not easy thats why Im planning for it and lets hope experience of zanskar in 2017 will help me.

Went through vlogs on YT and it seems a good adventure.

I think only thing I should reconsider is the time may be July end - mid August will be good.

If any BCMTian has done this then please let me know.

I have no one name here, who was able to post anything completely here.

Only Ramesh ji has done some part after Darcha in 2019
Darcha starting Page to get some idea:
8 Passes + Cliff Hanger Road Trip


Some groups have done full route in September 2019 only that too with much difficulty.
4x4 is must here.

2 wheelers also done this.
Those were lucky in 2019.

@akshay4384 tried this in 2021 but was able to move some part only may be upto / near Shinkoo La only on 4x4.

These Bikers from other group have done in 2019 only :
Darcha–Padum Road built

Thank you Satinder ji.

I went through that BCMT link way back when it started.

@akshay4384 can you please share the time you visited and difficulties faced during your trip. And also if any permit required for this route if you travel from Darcha to Padum.

Let me go through the complete travelogue of Ramesh ji.

2 bikers went in 2019 and successfully completed the route as mentioned in their vlog on YT but not receiving any help from them.
