Trip To Leh Ladakh

The captivating landscape stretching across the "land of highways" explains why Ladakh Tourism tops every adventurer's bucket list. Rejoice a vacation here with the trip to Leh Ladkah by witnessing the mesmerizing views of the turquoise lakes rippling amidst the rugged valleys of the terrain. Leh Ladakh tour guide welcomes everyone to the land of adventures where trekking might seem like a hundred-to-one task but biking through the roadways thoroughly holds its own charm. Make sure to cover all Ladakh tourist places on this once in a lifetime trip.  

Ladakh is located in the north-easternmost part of Jammu and Kashmir in India. It lies about 410 km away from Srinagar and 474 km from Manali via Rohtang Pass in Himachal Pradesh. It takes about 20 hours to travel from Manali to Leh by road. Tourists can opt for Volvo buses to Manali and then take shared taxis or local buses to reach Ladakh from Delhi by road. Another convenient way is to take a direct flight from Delhi or Mumbai to Leh.

Follow up the travel guide to Leh Ladakh and drive towards any destination from here and get enchanted by the pristine elegance and composure of the foothills of Kargilone of the most popular Leh Ladakh places to visit. Besides, the crowd- pleasing Sham Valley which harbors various monasteries of Alchi, Likir, and Lamayuru is too, a major attraction.

History of Ladakh

Earliest inhabitants of the region were Indo-Aryans. Ladakh was under the rule of Kushana Empire in the 1st century AD and Buddhism spread via Kashmir and eventually to western Tibet. In the medieval period, due to several Muslim invasions several Balti people converted to Islam. Dogra Zorawar Singh invaded Ladakh in 1834 and annexed the area to the Sikh Empire. The region was divided into two district of Leh and Kargil in 1979.

Trekking in Ladakh

Stok Kangri Trek is an ideal summit trail for adventure seekers and avid mountaineers. Held every year in the summer season, this 8-day trek allows breathtaking views of glaciers and Zanskar Range. In the month of January, hundreds of trekkers reach Leh to explore Chadar trek in the Zanskar region which remains cut off by road. Suru Valley and Markha Valley is one of the most rewarding trails in Ladakh.

Bike Trip to Ladakh

Riding a bike to Ladakh is a dream of many. From Manali or Jammu, one can drive all the way to Leh, depending on the weather and road conditions. Crossing mighty mountain passes and small villages with unique culture is a major highlight of a bike trip to Ladakh. Upon reaching Leh, one can plan expeditions to Pangong Lake, Tso Moriri, and Nubra Valley by bike.

While riding from Manali, one can explore Keylong, Sirsu, and Tanglang La mountain pass to reach Leh in about 2 days. Whereas, on a bike trip from Srinagar to Leh, one can ride past places such as Zoji La, Kargil, Dras, and Lamayuru. Rated among the many dangerous pathways, a drive to the Khardung La and further down to the Nubra Valley, acknowledging well about Leh Ladakh tourism also calls for some serious aldosterone rise. A ride through the agape valleys run riot by the tributaries of Shyok and observe the improbable sand dunes of Hunder inviting the visitors with appreciating historical myths. A walk towards the ancient monasteries of Diskit and Samthanling is known to unfold many legendary anecdotes.

Ramble up to the world’s third highest pass of Chang La to witness the ravishing view of the Pangong Lake and experience the true thrills and shrills about Leh Ladakh tourism. Ladakh is well decorated with numerous silt stupas across many depreciated halts, however, topping the recommendation list of Leh Ladakh tourism, the city dots with many monasteries like Hemis, Thiksey, Tangtse, Stok, Spituk, Naropa Photang and a few more.

Tips to Visit Ladakh

1) Make sure to get road and trekking permits in Leh well in advance.

2) Pack sunscreen, woollens, raingear, and first-aid on a visit to Leh.

3) Do not ignore weather warnings for dust storm and snowstorm in Ladakh.

4) Do not litter at Pangong Lake or any other place in Ladakh.

5) While trekking in Ladakh, be aware of fragile eco-system and do not harm the wildlife.

Read about the best & quickest routes to save time & money, as suggested by our travelers

By Air

For those who are wondering how to reach Leh Ladakh by air, one can book a flight to Leh (Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport) anytime. It is important to know that the security checks at this airport are little stricter than others. One should take a taxi from the airport.

While traveling from Delhi, there are many trains that are operational on the route. Some of the major trains are Jammu Rajdhani, Uttar Sampark Kranti, Jhelum Express and Malwa Express.

By Road

How to reach Leh Ladakh by Road doesn’t need much thinking as this is perhaps the best way to reach this beautiful destination. The total distance of 434 kilometers taking the beautiful Srinagar-Leh Highway is the most reliable way to reach Leh-Ladakh by road from Srinagar.

    • Trip to Ladakh

      I had a wonderful experience with Leh Ladakh journey. I went here with my parents, which is not the norm. I was afraid of the extreme conditions, as my parents were traveling with me. We were well guided by the team especially Sushant who came over to meet us at the hotel and helped us overcome the worries my mother had. We've got some cool tips from him which helped us a lot to enjoy a pleasant stay. The hotels we have stayed were very good too for the price, and have got super helpful staff. The best part was that we have got an excellent driver(Namang) who was super friendly, which made the entire trip so smooth. Will be releasing a video blog soon on our journey. Thanks Bhavana, for coordinating all the documents & payments needed to keep the entire process so chilled out Leh is a must visit place because of it's stunning beauty. And because you've got some cool people like these to help your journey go in a relaxed manner!

    FAQ's of Ladakh

    Read on to find out why our customers love us!

    An acclimatisation walk for a day or two is recommended for beginners looking to trek or visit higher altitudes in Ladakh.

    Markha Valley trek, Chadar trek, Stok Kangri Trek, and Padum to Darcha trek are among some popular treks in Ladakh.

     

     

    Travellers can stay in a camp in towns along Leh–Manali highway, trek on Chadar River, and expedition to Stok Kangri summit.

    There are several tour operators in Leh that provide rafting packages to travellers on the thunderous rapids of Indus and Zanskar Rivers.

    The time taken for acclimatization differs from person to person. Usually oen must rest for one whole day even if you are feeling ok. Avoid alcohol for a minimum of 3 days, and increase your intake of water. The biggest cause of Acute Mountain Sickness is dehydration.
