Possibility of Manali to Tso Moriri?


Active Member
Hi everyone,

A query about travelling from Manali to Leh route and permits for Indian citizen, travel will be some time next year....maybe June/July or September.

Is it possible to do Tso Moriri first and then reach Leh via Pangong, by following the below route?
Or do I need to reach Leh first and then apply for permits?

The Route in question -

Manali---Rohtang---Sarchu---Pang---Debring---Tso Kar--Korzok (Tso Moriri)---Sumdo---Nyoma---Chusul---Merak/Sprangmik (Pangong Tso)---Dubruk--Chang La---Karu --Leh

Possible but permits are must. You would need someone in leh to get permits for you in advance and send copies to you.

More than the permit, it is AMS that you need to worry about. Once you start your ascent to Baralacha La, you won't come down below 14k feet until you reach Durbuk. That can be fatal and at the very least, cause quite a lot of discomfort. Please read Ladakh AMS Survival Guide.
