    I see a lot of ppl from Pune.
    Y not meet up on a Saturday and decide for some better progression ?
    Lets atleast pull out 45 cars for the trip and make it a big one.
    We can get sponsors as well for the same.

    It is too early to plan the trip and I am sure few of us from this list will drop out on 11th hour.

    Meanwhile lets build the list who are going to Leh this year and finalize the date.

    I think August 2015 will be ideal month to visit Leh.

    July will be too early, looking at current situations at Leh I am sure there will be some limitations in July so I would prefer August. September being festival month it is not possible to schedule this expedition in September 2015.

    So lets freeze the date/weeks for THE LEH LADAKH EXPEDITION.

    How about 2nd week of August & we will get chance to celebrate the Independence with Indian Army (if all it is possible). It will be big salute from Team FIAT.

    @Viny what you say?

    There is another side to visit Leh on Independence day. The security alert from Indian Army will be there and there will be some restrictions as well.

    We need to think about that as well. If there are any restrictions then we need to schedule accordingly. Leaving Pune on 15th August Morning. @mchanna are you fine with it.

    I am ok, but let's try to be there on 15th Aug, what do you say? Let's keep couple of days in buffer so that even if there is any security hurdles (which is very unlikely) we will have time to accommodate.

    In that case Pune Group's travel dates would be 12th August to 26th August 2015. (leaves would start from 12th August to 28th August with 3 days in buffer for whole journey)

    @mchanna are you ok with these date if yes then we can go ahead with the planning.

    Guys please confirm your availability so that we can have fixed date for this expedition and then we'll have concrete plan to make this meet successfull

    I am all with the gang no issues, if majority feel comfortable in august.
    But do take note of following

    1. August receives the highest rainfall in Laddhak and its also the hottest month. So its flood prone in some regions like last year Kashmir valley.
    2. Security concerns will be very high for those who plan to do Manali to Leh and return via Srinagar.

    Ideally September or early oct will be best time, but then when friends are by your side, nothing else matters :)


    Good point is that those who want to fly out from srignagar or do delhi -leh-delhi, the air fares are lowest in go air, like delhi-leh-delhi at 4k :D or mumbai-srinagar-mumbai at 4.5K :D

    @S A SHAH can give us more input on hows the grounds situation in Srinagar at that time.
