Take a step back from your city life and indulge yourself in the Ladakh tour! With breathtaking views, vibrant culture, dusty mountains and the land of high passes and hairpin turn, the Ladakh Tour is your next adventure.
Ladakh is a wonderful combination of serenity and mayhem, with moonlight valleys, alpine slopes, dangerous paths, and strong rivers, offering something for everyone. Whether an individual seeks the excitement of driving on high motorable passes or tries to achieve a serene mind by studying the Buddha’s words in a monastery, the Ladakh tour offers it all. One of the many reasons why Ladakh draws so many wandering visitors, not just from India but from all over the globe, is the essence of Buddhist culture that can be found across the enormous region. Leh, the capital city of Ladakh, has more to offer!
A place that has a zeal for soothing and exhilarating, Leh is known for its pristine and stunning environment and monasteries. Leh is also popularly known as the Land of Llamas or Little Tibet. Something you should not miss out on when in Leh is the native food, especially the Gur Gur Cha, a form of butter tea that keeps you warm, and the momos, which have journeyed from Tibet.
Because you’ll be over 14000 feet for more than 300 kilometres on your road trip, dealing with AMS will be a top priority. Our leaders will conduct health surveys from time to time. Do let them know if you’re experiencing anything unusual.

As you will be riding at a very high altitude you should be aware of the weather condition and also take care of your health. You should keep in mind that for a few days, cardio exercises are your lifesaver.
The air is very thin at high altitudes like Baralach La and Khardung la. By doing Cardio exercises, you can keep yourself fit and you can have an amazing experience on the trip.
If you love winter and would love to see high snow-clad mountains, then visiting during May-June is the time for you.
The best time would be between June-September as the temperature is warm and the days are long.
Some of the leading network carriers are based there. While travelling by road, you will be able to utilize BSNL and Airtel postpaid services. However, there are certain spots in Leh where you would be unable to use any cell network at all.
Ladakh is presently a Union Territory divided into two sections: Leh and Kargil. It was once a part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. It is bordered by Pakistan and China. Leh is primarily a tourism destination in Ladakh.
So, technically, Leh and Ladakh are not the same things. Ladakh encompasses the whole northeastern region of Jammu & Kashmir, whereas Leh is a city and district inside Ladakh.
When you approach the Union Territory of Ladakh, the roads become a little rougher. During your road trip to Leh, you must put your driving talents to the test. Driving on a regular road is not the same as driving in mountainous terrain.
Winding roads and traffic bottlenecks around the mountain pass may put your driving abilities to the test. You only need to be confident and focused when driving.
There are no direct flights to Leh airport. You can reach Delhi, which has various connecting paths in North India. Please note that you will have to bear all expenses related to your travel to Leh airport from your place.
The recommended way to reach from New Delhi to Leh is a flight to Leh Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport which takes 1h 15m.
There is no train station in Leh, thus you can’t get there by train. Jammu Tawi (700 kilometres from Ladakh) is the closest railway station, having connections to Delhi, Kolkata, and Mumbai. To go to Ladakh from Jammu, you can rent a cab or take a JKSRTC bus.
By road, Leh can be reached from major cities like Delhi (966 km), Chandigarh (733 km), and Jammu (695 km). To go to Ladakh from Jammu, you can rent a cab or take a JKSRTC bus.
