The bike rental guys in Manali will get you your permits or you can always stand in queue for 2-3 hours at the permit office (ask anyone about its whereabouts in Manali). You have to cross the first check post which is Gulaba (just before Rohtang) on the day of issue of the permit only.
Reach and stay the night at Sarchu. Leave next morning and reach Leh city. You need permit to go to Khardungla pass, Nubra valley and Zanskar. Ask the locals if you need one for Dras (when we went then it wasn't required for Dras). Now you can either go to Dras (Kargil), either stay the night there or keep going ahead and reach Srinagar and stay there. If you stayed in Dras then you can reach Sonmarg and stay there. From Sonmarg you can easily reach Delhi the same day otherwise you'll have to stay in Chandigarh.
It will take around 10-12 days if roads don't block.
Hope this helps.
No permit is needed but yes when you go pangong lake or kardungla pass etc from leh if u planned thn yes you need permit and that you can get easily from leh office or few travel agents are thr who provide same .. and i would suggest try to return via manali route and complete the circle .. that route is awesome ..
Manali-Leh Ladakh route:-
Riding along this 490 kilometre route is one of the best experiences. Along this route you will have pass through amazing sceneries and passes. The highly acclaimed Rohtang Pass falls along this route. For an easier time, make sure you book your pass permit online at the Tourism Development Council of Himachal Pradesh. This helps you avoid the queue at the SDM counter. For a petrol vehicle, the pass permit costs Rs. 800 and it is Rs.400 for a diesel vehicle. Route: Manali – Gramphu – Khokhsar – Sissu – Keylong – Jispa – ZingZing Bar – Sarchu – Pang – Tanglang La – Miru – Upshi – Karu – Leh Srinagar-Leh Route:-
If you are looking to take another route, the Srinagar to Leh Ladakh one is an equally gorgeous one to drive through. Along this route, you will pass through scenic spots of the Himalayas. You will pass through the world’s highest motorable pass, the Khardung La pass and the Kashmir Valley. This road is more convenient that the Manali- Leh because this road has more connectivity and facilities like petrol pumps and eateries. Route: Srinagar – Sonamarg – Zoji La – Drass – Kargil – Mulbekh – Lamayuru – Saspol – Leh
