What if someone wants to do Srinagar-Leh-Manali loop? In that case also one should get permission from HP?

No idea if the HP govt. is planning to make it compulsory for the vehicles entering the Rohtang Pass via Leh.

If the permission is NOT required to enter Manali via Leh - Rohtang, then it shall be very much clear that this move is 'influenced' by the great Kullu Manali taxi operators.

I have myself experienced around 10 - 12 years back when we were going on a sight seeing tour (via HP registered Omni cab) around Simla, there were around a dozen of taxi operators, who had formed a kind of barrier after Sanjouli (outskirts of Simla) and were not letting the other state's cabs to go towards Kufri on their own. There were NO police around and such barricade used to happen in the mornings between 9 - 11 AM to harrass other state cabs.


Cheers!

This ruling was there last year also.
Vehicles coming from Leh side do not have any issues. The issues come for vehicles climbing from manali side.
They have to get permits first.

So everybody going towards Leh / Rohtang from Manali last year, applied for the permits? Were there any check posts for checking the same?

Permits are not required, if coming from Leh side then there are chances that Taxi union is playing an important role in this.

Cheers!

Of course its the taxi union making money.
People who do not want to cross(eg go to Leh etc.,) have to take local taxi instead of their own car. Look at the revenue boost they get.

I prefer the Jaipur-Behror-Rewari-Delhi-Panipat-Ambala route. I would avoid the slightly shorter Rewari-Rohtak-Panipat route. NCR is easy to navigate even if you do not know anything about Delhi.
Dear HVK Sir,

I am planning to go to Ladakh in Aug this year from Bombayalong with 4 friends. We will all be biking it from Delhi. The plan is that we will be loading our Bullets from Bombay on the Rajdhani and reaching Delhi on 4th Aug. We plan to do the Delhi-Chandigarh-Manali-Leh route and hope to be back by the same route to Delhi. We will be starting from Delhi on 5th Aug and plan to be back in Delhi by 17th Aug.

I wanted to know if these dates are feasible or are they over ambitious? Will it be possible for us to go and come back in 13 days. I would also be grateful if anyone could give us a tentative itinerary as I'm not able to plan where should we stop for the night, when we should reach certain destinations, etc.

Yes, I think you can do it.
Schedule could be as follows:
Aug 5 - Delhi-Chandigarh-Mandi
Aug 6 - Mandi-Kulu-Manali-Keylong
Aug 7 - Keylong-Jispa-Sarchu-Pang
Aug 8 - Pang-Leh
Aug 9 - Leh
Aug 10 - Leh-Khardung la-Leh
Aug 11 - Leh-Pangong Tso-Leh
Aug 12 - Leh-Lamayuru
Aug 13 - Lamayuru-Kargil-Dras
Aug 14 - Dras-Sonmarg-Srinagar
Aug 15 - Srinagar-Jammu
Aug 16 - Jammu-Delhi
Aug 17 - Buffer

I am worried about only the Aug 6th drive. You may have to adjust your schedule here and there, because of uncertainties in crossing Rohtang Pass.

Thanks for your prompt reply. We plan to come back using the Leh-Manali route itself as we want to avoid Srinagar on I-Day. Also we will be going on bikes so I guess the ride may be slower as I guess you have given a schedule that could be accomplished in a car.

I know I'm asking for too much but could you please help in giving a schedule that could be done on the Delhi-Chandigarh-Manali-Leh route and back the same way on Bullets.

HVK, how fast Pune - Delhi can be done? I have earlier done Pune- Mum-Guj-Rajasthan route and while coming back Delhi-Indore-Dhule-Pune.

Any better options?

Why don't you stop off at Amritsar and enjoy some really good food? Then go on to Srinagar the next day for more food...
