Next week I will be heading off to Leh from Delhi with my two cousins. This is a well overdue trip which we have been waiting for and finally, its being planned, of course with the help of the forum! The trip to Leh would be via Srinagar as it is a route recommended by some friends. Is it true that it is better than the Manali route? All three of us can drive, and we have planned to make it a straight drive to Leh by taking turns to drive, is this a good idea? Or do you think we should make a night stop somewhere? Is there any place where we would have problems getting diesel on the way to Leh? Is the road towards Leh single or a double road? What are the road conditions like going towards Leh, would we come across much traffic?
