Needs suggestions on number or days and months too. Open for any month and number of days as per itinerary demands

Month would depend on interest of the person...

If the interest is to see loads of snow and challenging conditions - May/June
If the interest is to see varied colours of Ladakh - September

Similarly, number of days would depend on what all the person wants to cover - just a circuit (Srinagar-Leh-Manali) or just ticking off a bucket list (Manali-Leh-Manali), just covering touristy places (Nubra & Pangong), or exploring Ladakh (it could be a month long itinerary too!)

Some hint would help. :)

One last question - how many hours the person would be comfortable riding - 10-12 hours one one or two days will do?

Here is what I recommend for bikers specifically.

Day 1: Delhi - Chandigarh
Day 2: Chandigarh - Keylong or Jispa
Day 3: Jispa - Acclimatization is very important. Full day rest without any activity whatsoever!
Day 4: Jispa - Leh
Day 5: Leh - Rest
Day 6: Leh - Sight Seeing
Day 7: Leh - Pangong Tso
Day 8: Pangong Tso - Shyok - Agam - Nubra Valley
Day 9: Nubra Valley - Leh ( Via Khardung La - Highest All Weather motorable road in the world)
Day 10: Leh - Rest and bike check up and service. This is very crucial since bikes would have experienced wear and tear.
Day 11: Leh - Tso Moriri
Day 12: Tso Moriri - Leh
Day 13: Leh - Kargil
Day 14: Kargil - Srinagar
Day 15: Srinagar - House boat
Day 16: Srinagar - Jammu
Day 17: Jammu - Delhi

Please also provide information on fuel stations in the route and suggested places where one should tank up
