Manali to Leh TaxiHi,
I'm getting ready to go an a trip to Manali & Leh next month. I will be in Manali for three days and plan to make my way up to Leh from Manali by private Jeep/Taxi. Regarding transport it is better to book ahead through travel agents or via the Manali Taxi Union on arrival?
The price the taxi Union quoted me was for 15,000 rs for a Qualis/Sumo to Leh. Travel agents are charging around 1000RS higher and up.

6You pay the halt 400R hotel, total cost like 1,100R.
Rs 700 barely covers the state HRTC buses with last years price hike. HPTDC tourist buses charged Rs 1500 without acommodation two years ago , it´s not getting cheaper.
You have three options :
Buses , both HRTC and HPTDC stop overnight in Keylong.
Ten seater minibuses that usually gun for The Vomit Hilton , aka Sarchu
and the 4WD/jeeps : either Sarchu or the nonstop cannonball run for Leh , think around twenty hours
Jeep prices start at Rs 1000 for the cramped inwards facing seats in the back , minibuses around Rs 1500 .
I prefer the private Jeep/Taxi option as that way we
can stop along the road and take plenty of pictures.
Make a very clear agreement on how many extra stops , last time I rode up with a jeep the driver wouldn´t even make the customary stop for prayers/photos at the high passes. If you are pushing further than Keylong the first day he has good reason to limit extra breaks.
