Hi,
I am Manoj, I have been reading articles and heard so many good feedbacks on Mr.Yogesh Sarkar for this wonderful BCMtouring portal.

Now it's my time to get some help from you all. Please suggest best itinerary for 12 to 14 days bike ride from Delhi-Leh-Delhi.

I have read so many articles and cos of that I am confused. actually I liked below mentioned plan by Mr.Yogesh Sarkar but however I also want to witness WAGAH BORDER please help me plan. I need to cover all good places (Not tourist places).

I have planned to start my ride on 10th September early morning. I am riding with 8 friends along with me.

PS- I am depending on you guys very much.

You can go first day Delhi to Amritsar. Leave early morning and reach Amritsar before 2pm.
Just put your luggage in hotel and move to Vagha Border.
Spend evening there and enjoy night at food joints of Amritsar.
You can visit Golden Temple after dark.

Day 2 : Reach Srinagar if Kashmir route opens.
Day -3 : Reach Drass / Kargil.
Day 4 : Target Leh.
Day 5: Move around for few days.
Day 7: Move towards Nubra Valley.
Day 8: Move around.
Day 9: Pangong Tao via Agham Shyok routed
Day 10: Return to Leh
Day 11: Return towards Sarchu.
Day 12: Target Manal
Day 13: Back to Delhi with break / Non Stop.

This is just Plan A.
If Kashmir does not open, Forget this route and Amritsar also.
Just move to Manali on day 1.
Arrange permit for Rohtang Pass.

thnx adsatinder ji. is it possible to do amritsar - srinagar in a day ?
It is around 550km.
Leave early morning for Udhampur.
Go via Samba as it is short route.
Then in hills you have to check the speed, jam etc and if you push then you will reach late at night at Srinagar.
I was expecting a tunnel to open but it is still not opened on 15-16 / 25-26 July 2016. This was going to reduce 31km.
Stay before Srinagar, where ever it is dark and difficult to drive.

Another Group stayed at Anantnag !

Amritsar to Udhampur
Udhampur to Srinagar.
You can move upto Anantnag easily.
Or

Amritsar to Udhampur is plain only.
After Udhampur hills start.
Move in hills till day light is there.


Leh to Nubra Valley via Khardung La,
stay at Diskit or Hunder Village. Visit monasteries at both the villages and sand dunes.
Ride to Sumur and Panamik Villages in morning, then head back to Leh. Just before Leh, take detour for Namgyal Tsemo Gompa to enjoy evening view of Leh City.

Leh to Pangong Tso,

You can stay for 2 days at Nubra side easily.
Instead of coming to Leh from Nubra,
go directly to Pangong Tso via Agham Shyok route.
Fill your tanks in Leh.
Check Diskit Petrol Pump also.
