Default Updated - 1st Leg

Hi,

This is what after rounds of discussion and queries in this awesome forum, I finalized is going go be. This is just the 1st leg (or in other words the 1st 17 days of the trip looks like).

I am reworking my 2nd leg now since I am contemplating going to Lahaul, Spiti and Nako instead of the original plan of J&K.

The 1st Leg is on the assumption that I will get the permits in advance, which I am very sure on.

Leaving from Bangalore on 3rd Sep 2010.

Day 1: Bangalore - Pune
Day 2: Pune - Udaipur
Day 3: Udaipur – Chandigargh
Day 4: Buffer
Day 5: Chandigargh - Manali
Day 6: Buffer - Car Check / Organize EPs from earlier made contact
Day 7: Manali - Rothang Pass - Koskar - Tandi - Keylong - Jispa - Dercha - Baralacha Pass - Sarchu
Day 8: Sarchu - Brandy Nallah - Whisky Nallah - Gata Loops - Nakee La - Lachung La - Pang - Moore Plains - Tso Kar - Puga - Sumdo - Namshang La - Tso Kiagar - Tso Moriri (Korzok)
Day 9: Tso Moriri (Korzok) - Mahe - Chumathang - Kumdok - Upshi - Karu
Day 10: Karu (Or Upshi) - Pangong Tso
Day 11: Pangong Tso - Marsimik La (M-Top) - Pangong Tso
Day 12: Pangong Tso - Leh and night stay
Day 13: Hundar - Panamik - Hundar (Panamik Hot Springs on way - nothing fancy)
Day 14: Hundar - Diskit - Khardung La (K-Top) - Leh
Day 15: Buffer - Car Check at Leh
Day 16: Leh - Sight Seeing
Day 17: An additional Buffer Day added here to cover for unforeseen issues if any.

Day 18 onwards is Leg 2.

Thanks RK. I am sure your logs will be the 1st on in 2010 on Leh. So I will keep a wide eye open for that one and make any amendments if necessary for my trip.

@RK...this works out well. Do you think we can sync up in Srinagar (coz i am planning to come via Jaipur - Chandigarh- Amritsar) and then tag along? Are you going to make prior bookings for the accomodation since it would be peak seaon? Let me know.

why not, lets sync up somewhere, have PMed you my detail plan.

We are 3 cars as of now, A Dzire with friend and Wife and I suggested him to do all the booking in advance. A Tata safari with 5 pax, they are trying to book BSNL Guest Houses as one of the guy is BSNL employee and another one is Tata employee (see that's all you need BSNL and Tata).

My SX4 have three people including myself, and I am planning to book only till Srinagar, beyond that I will just call on the way, I have identified the place(and backup places) where I will be staying.

we should definetly find something in Kargil, Leh, Nubra and Tangste. I am bit unsure about Tso Moriri though, and last anything in Manali will be fine as it is just a stopover

Fortunately or Unfortunately I had to do all the preps well in advance as I might be in Spain a week before the trip for something official.

So all tools stacked, Tow Rope, Jump Start Cable, Bottle type Hydraulic Jack, All Tools, Foot Pump, Emergency Jump start mini battery, Electric Pump and all the stuff I had from last year.

car was serviced yesterday, finally I moved to all weather Mobil 1 synthetic 0w40, all belts, bolts, electricals, battery checked, front brake pads changed, were 30K old and could have managed another 5K km, but not good for trip. Bush kit for front shocker changed.

Only thing missing is Jerry Can, and for that also I have found the source for new Army type jerry cans. They supply to Indian Ordinance and overseas and quoted 2200 for two 20 Liter Steel jerry cans with tax and freight charge (from kanpur). Only hurdle is that they can not sell without a TIN number of the buyer in India. so I am arranging that.

last is spares, I will carry, Concentrated Coolant, some engine oil, 250 ml brake oil, and essential belts

Souvik,

I would probably be ahead by day or two, let me know if you need anything before hand post Manali.

Akaushik

Are you referring to my old plan, coz the dates are now in September. Happy to have company, though most of my travel mates, would camp out in the open with own arrangements.

Planning to do Mumbai - Leh from August 19 to September 11, 2010. Hope to bump into BHP bretheren. Still finalising on the itenerary, pretty excited about the plan. We are four of us in a Swift (or may be a Xylo, if i end up buying one before the trip!). Worried about the GC for Swift (with 4 pax+luggage), but come what may, we are defintiely getting Leh'd this summer..!

@Souvik: great plan. Please let me know if you know any agents who could help us for an advance permit in Tso Moriri. Plan to to do Mumbai - Manali- Sarchu - Tso Moriri and then head for Leh. Thanks!
