How To Reach Leh in Ladakh - India

Nearest Airport: Leh, Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport ( IXL)
Nearest Rail Head: Katra, (KEA), Jammu Tawi ( JAT)
Route Hubs:

From Airport: Leh airport is well connected to Delhi and hence to rest of India. However, the prices get very high in season and almost triples. It is advised to beeok nthe flights earlier

From Railway Station: By train you might reach Jammu, or Katra railway station. From there come to Srinagar to get easy cabs for Leh.

By Bus: You have 2 options if you want to travel by road. Both of them is a thrilling journey. Manali to Leh being the best.

Manali - Leh: An experience of a lifetime. It crosses 4 high altitude passes to reach Leh. The road is open from mid July to mid October depending on snow conditions. Distance 473 Km. Travel time: 18- 20 hours. A bus is run by the Himachal State Bus Transport which breaks in Keylong for the night. Else, many shared vehicles ply the route. You get it from Manali taxi stand. Bus costs about 700 Rs and a shared cab about 1600 - 2500 rs depending upon season, road condition and demand

Srinagar - Leh: Srinagar to Leh is a thrilling ride too through Drass ( world's 2nd coldest inhabitted place), Kargil, Zojila, Lamayuru ( moon landscape) and Magnetic hill. We get shared cabs from Srinagar. A direct bus is available from Srinagar which halts either in Kargil or Drass. Bus is the cheapest but not comfortable at all. Shared cabs cost between 1500 - 1800 rs.

Jammu - Leh: If you have arrived Jammu by train, go to Srinagar and then change cab for Leh. if you are lucky, you might get direct cab to Leh from Jammu. They usually halt in Sonamarg, Drass or Kargil for the night. Cost - 2500 - 2700/-
