We booked tour to Ladakh starting from Srinagar starting Sep. well in advance. However the Srinagar route closed due to Article 370 decision. However Ahmed contacted us via tele. from Police station and requested us to contact his counterpart in Leh to reorganize the tour. We then started the tour from Leh with almost same itinerary except that the Sonmarg & Kargil stops we had to skip.
It was all very well organised, good vehicle with driver, good Hotels etc.
Only thing they lagged was co-ordination by counterpart in Leh. I found them very much lagging in this with no instructions to the driver. Even the permit for our visit to Nubra and Pangong were not handed over to the driver. Even Hotel voucher were not given to us. It was vigilance from our side as I am a frequent traveler as also from the vehicle driver we could manage or else we would have landed over selves in trouble. Well with Ahmed ( Cr7) having limited telephone connectivity I suppose this was not under his control as well.
It would have been excellent except for the above issue, however given the circumstances prevailing I suppose this was okay and it compensated by giving us excellent Hotels and driver.
