      Hi, Chennai VT,

      Is it easy to flag and board an ordinary taxi in Eillot's Beach and anywhere else in India without calling a taxi in advance? Will taxi drivers without passengers stop to allow passengers to board if passengers flag?

      Hello,

      I'm going to fly from Delhi to Leh around the 6th of September, 2011 then hopefully travel by land back down South to Manali, Dharmsala etc

      I'm looking forward to the Ladakh festival but I'm wondering does the Ladakh festival have any bearing on finding accommodation in Leh and the Ladakh/ region? Is the festival concentrated on one specific region or spread out over the area? How big and well celebrated is it? I'd like to trek and travel in the region until the end of September then travel by road at the beginning of November. Are the roads generally still open at the beginning of October to head South to Dharmsala? Also what temperature weather is there in September? I suppose I can buy any heavy warmer gear in Leh if needs be?

      Thanks so much,

      Hi all,

      We are planning to visit Leh/Ladakh but for a very short trip 4D/5N. Given such a tight schedule, we are told that we have to choose between Nubra or Pasong? Appreciate if anyone that has visited these two places can recommend which one best to visit and if there is anyway at all that we can actually visit both in such a short trip.

      Could anyone also advise what is the weather like in May and what to pack?

      Thanks.

      travelling to Ladakh

      by magicwoman79 Online Now Jan 31, 2010 at 4:25 PM

      Dear Travelers,

      I'm planning a trip from Delhi to Leh (via Dharamsala) in July/August 2010.
      My idea is to road travel to Leh and go back via plane. I know all of it's been said before, but I'd love to hear some tips on how to get there.

      I'm a woman and will be traveling alone. I'm looking for the safest means possible. I'd like to avoid trains.

      i'd like to hear some of your suggestions on the route I should take, means of transport (buses/taxi), how to book it, how long does it take?

      I'd like to make a stop at Dharamsala. Is there a way of getting from Dharamsala to ladakh?

      Thanks so much,

      magicwoman

      advance booking in July?

      by piglet44 Online Now Sep 12, 2009 at 12:33 AM

      Dear forum
      We want to visit Ladakh for around a week to 10 days in July 2010. I know this is high season and would like to ask if we need to book accommodation and trips (by jeep etc) in advance or will we be able to get better deals on the spot?
      We would like to see the Nubra Valley and the Pangong Lake area.

      Hi there
      I am a hardcore adventure loving guy. I am planning to make a record, riding Manali to Leh in a single day without halting in Sarchu or Pang with my Pulsar DTSi 180CC.I want to know is there any body who had done that? Please advise me how do I prepare for that and which time of the year will be ideal for that ride?
