    we paid by jeep, not by per person, last time cheaper also. and we do not pay for the jeep everyday, only the limb from delhi to manali, and manali to leh only.

    nope, backpack comes in different volume and extension, and definitely packs more than hard casing

    and from the car to doorstep variable distance. it could be 5m to 15m, some of which like at spangmik from the gate is like 50m... sometimes going to the carpark (etc at delhi) road condition can also be very bad

    haha... icic... i guess my mentality is still wrong... i was thinking of front door parking ... i didnt expect to walk more than 10 steps from jeep to hotel door ... k.. then i understand why u suggest backpack liao...

    Hey, me and my friend doing a trip on 12th to 25th june,
    with luck we can even meet up !!
    plans are similar taking the "luxury volvo bus" up from delhi to shimla, manali keylong then leh, followed by a flight from leh to delhi and a one day train down to agra to visit taj mahal and back in delhi.
    The flight should cost ard 300

    Visa can be done at mustafa

    Will be backpacking so really hope experienced bros out there can provide some advice on what to bring (packing list) and what sort of camera equipment ? Camera body memory cards what lenses? was thinking my tamron 17-50 and a 12-24 and a tripod.

    Its depends on your plan schedule to travel with in 11 days. In my opinion u must visit less time consuming places in a single day or the places where less to visit. Even u can cutoff u r resting time if u really want to visit such beautiful places becoz who rest always looses the the best.
    All the best 4 u r trip.................

    Hi guys, If you need the pricing. This is what we paid for with Antrek for 5 pax last September:

    Our jeep AC Innova or Scorpio - pick up at Delhi International Airport, drive overnight to Manali

    Stayed one or 2 nights at Appleview, Manali (100-200rps per night- we pay)

    Drive from Manali to Keylong. Guest house there is about 500rps a night (we pay). Plenty around the area

    Jeep Innova or the Scorpio would drive you from Keylong to Sarchu to our Antrek Camp. Here you would be provided dinner and the next day’s morning breakfast @ Rupees 800 per person X 5 persons = Rupees 4000

    Drive from Sarchu to Leh in an Innova or Scorpio. Total jeep cost from Delhi International Airport to Leh would be Rupees 28000/-

    Total services cost Rupees 32000/- for the 5 of you.

    Hope this help. If you need any more info. feel free to drop me a mail.

    P
