Travel Tips: Driving to Leh in Car

Driving from Delhi to Ladakh seem interesting right? I get so many enquiries from friends saying we are a group of 4 and want to drive to Leh, need your advice.

So here are some important things you should consider before planning this trip:

  • Firstly self driven cars like zoomcar aren’t allowed in Ladakh, except on the highway.
  • You should take a taxi over there or a vehicle that one of your blood relatives owns.
  • You can hire rental cars but for Ladakh sightseeing and pangong tso you can not take this car.
  • If you are taking the Manali-Leh route you need to get permit. If you opt for Srinagar route no permits required.
  • In leh you can hire local taxi or bikes for sightseeing. They have set rates. Or use local transport too.
  • June to September is best time for road trip. Leh falls under rain shadow area so you need not worry. However, carry rain gear.
  • Regarding budget, Leh is very budget friendly it is up to you how much you want to spend on stay or how you want to travel.
