Fuel cost will depend on the vehicle, people who intend to cover the basic tour will be clocking roughly 3600kms and those planning to cover Zanskar Valley as well, will be covering roughly 4200kms.

Those who are interested in bringing their own cars, and would like to share fuel costs with people, who would be interested in coming to the trip without their own vehicle. Please post the details of your vehicles along with your experience so we can find people who might be interested in doing this.
