    I would like to do a 15-day tour in Himachal Pradesh and J&K which would consist of going to Leh, Srinagar, and Manali. I would be spending at least 5 days at each destination and the additional days would be spent on travel. As I am from Chandigarh my first destination would be Manali after which I would go to Leh then Srinagar.

    One of the worst things is getting lost or getting on the wrong route, and I need some guidance on the route with a road map, which would be from Manali to Leh to Srinagar. Although in such advanced technology times we have the good old GPS, but when going to hilly areas I can not really trust the connection, so I would rather be safe by getting a road map.

    If there is an actual road map available (as in an image) that would be fantastic but written directions will be fine.

    There are some famous places to eat on the way to Manali, Leh and Srinagar I am not too sure where these are but they are quite famous, so if you know of them please give the details.

    A map has been posted for indication, plus written directions have also been mentioned with better details of the route to follow.


    Manali – Rohtang Jot - Gramphu - Kokhsar - Tandi - Keylong - Jispa - Darcha – Zingzingbar - Baralacha La - Bharatpur - Sarchu (state border) - Gata Loops - Nakee La - Lachulung La - Pang - More Plains - Tanglang La - Gya - Upshi - Karu - Leh

    On the way from Chandigarh to Manali stop at the Bheemu Dhaba, which is just past the Mandi bus stop. Another place to stop at is Mayur Dhaba, which is in Harabagh.

    From ahead of Manali towards Leh there are dhabas you would find but nothing of that is famous, but all serve good quality and hygienic food. A list of places where you would find dhabas are Khoksar, Keylong, Jispa, Darcha, Bharatpur Tent City, Sarchu, Pang, Upshi. Please keep in mind the further you go the less dhabas you would find.

    From Leh to Srinagar you can stop at Khalste for the Sun and Moon Garden Restuarant and The War Memorial Cafe at Dras. When you reach Kargil, you will find many places to eat.

    Wow! The person above me pretty much has you covered there. But, a little tip. In India, road maps are still popular. You should be able to find them at pretty much anywhere tourists frequent.
