    1. Yes its difficult and also depends upon what kind of traffic conditions are en route to Rohtang. None the less Manali to Leh is 2 days route, so breaks can be planned as situation arises.

    2. See Plan B, Yes fuel will be a big issue, therefore additional tankful fuel will be required and thats where the problem is, although there are places where we can get fuel from shops, but then its need to think upon how we can redo the plan to add fueling points.

    22nd August to 13th September are the date which we MH members are planning to fix so members from other plan accordingly and apply leaves.

    Meeting Point for Pune, Mumbai and members from South India will be Ghod Bandar road, Mumbai on 22nd August 2015. Then we will proceed together and members from North region will join the convoy enroute.

    I hope this is fine with all and this will lead to plan this meet/expedition successfully.

    Can one of you post a check-list for getting ready for such a trip. Many of you may have done this kind of drive and may not need this, but I need a kind of self test to check if I am worthy. This would include checks for the vehicle, such as tyres, engine condition, special tools for emergencies, own health to tackle high altitude. I have done Himalayan treks and know how important is acclimatization, but those are organized and managed by a large work-force. Here the group will have to handle all eventualities on its own. J.Ravi's presence will be a big boost to me, if I join. I am interested to join and hope more may join Guj, MP, Rajasthan and northern parts of India.

    Wishing best luck to all.

    This is the most exhaustive preparation I have come across which many of us are aware of - http://www.teamfiat.com/threads/lad...anle-tso-moriri-rohtang.12905/#post-841915082
    As we are planning to go as a group, we can divide the list so that we can carry these stuffs as a group (except personal items!).

    We are planning to buy Ladakh 951 plan from HVK Store and that will help us to plan this expedition right from hotel booking to routes & 24x7 phone call support.

    I will share all the list of stuff we need to carry for this trip. Everything is available on HVK forum.
