About Backpacking Trips in Ladakh

When it comes to the diverse destinations that our country has to offer, the list is never-ending and yet every traveler’s dream destination remains Ladakh.

Renowned as The land of high passes, because of its rugged terrains which are perfect for off-roading, and moonlit valleys which are the embodiment of serenity, Ladakh is the perfect blend of calm and chaos. 

To make sure that you get to experience the best of Ladakh, we have curated Ladakh tour packages that are inclusive of the best sightseeing tours.

The rich culture influenced by Buddhism that is prevalent throughout the vast land of Ladakh is one of the reasons why it attracts so many avid travelers, not just from the country but all over the world. And you get to take a closer glimpse at the cultural heritage that Ladakh holds by visiting some of the best monasteries in India, namely the Diskit Monastery, Thikse Monastery, and the Shanti Stupa which is also enshrined by the 14th Dalai Lama himself making it a popular attraction of Ladakh.

Another highlight of our Ladakh tour packages is that you get to visit the iconic 3 idiot lake which is called Pangong Tso and is one of the most beautiful lakes in the valley. 

One of the best places in Ladakh, and also a place that remains underrated is Nubra Valley. The beauty of the valley leaves people spellbound as people expect Ladakh to be all about dirt trails and alpine terrains and people who visit Ladakh for the first time get pleasantly surprised by the blooming Nubra Valley.

As Ladakh is famous for its high passes, it only makes sense that we include some of the most popular high passes of Ladakh in our Ladakh backpacking and biking packages. The passes that you get to traverse through include Khardung La pass which is one of the highest motorable passes in the world, with a staggering height of 18,379 ft as well as Chang La which is nestled at an elevation of 17,688 ft and lies in the Ladakh range between Leh and Shyok River valley.

Other popular attractions of our sightseeing tour in these Leh Ladakh tour packages involve Gurudwara Patthar Sahib which is maintained by the Indian Army. The Gurudwara is considered to be one of the most sacred places in Ladakh and is dedicated to Guru Nanak dev Ji. 

The next popular attraction that we visit in our Ladakh tours is the iconic Magnetic hill which is believed to be one of the rare places that defy gravity.

The Hall of Fame which is a memorial constructed by the Indian Army to honor the legacy of the Indian soldiers who lost their lives during the many wars that occurred post-partition is also one of the places that you can visit through our Ladakh tour packages. 

Since the pickup point for most of our Ladakh tours is from Leh, along with other itineraries that include Ladakh trip from Delhi, and Ladakh trip from Srinagar as well, the best part is that during your buffer day which is necessary when it comes to traveling to high altitudes, you get to visit the beautiful town of Leh which was also the historical capital of the Kingdom of Ladakh. 

Most of these Leh Ladakh tour packages are perfect for all kinds of trips, be it weekend getaways or backpacking trips, and are organized from April which is the best time to go to Ladakh since all the passes start to open and you get to experience the best of a road trip to Ladakh.  

The best part is that we have also expanded our Ladakh itineraries to include some underrated locations that most people don’t know much about. One of them is Turtuk, a small village nestled between the Karakoram Range and the great Himalayas. What makes the village a center of attraction is its proximity to LOC and the fact that it was once under Pakistan. 

All our Leh Ladakh packages are inclusive and are curated according to the convenience of our travelers including our All girl trip to Ladakh which is specifically designed for the female travelers where the entire trip is led by a female trip captain to provide a sense of solidarity to young female travelers who wish to go to Ladakh.

In a nutshell, we have a diverse range of itineraries of Ladakh focusing on every aspect that can make your experience of visiting Ladakh ten times better.

Popularly known as the "Land of High Passes" because of the abundance of high-altitude mountain passes that are speckled throughout the region, Ladakh is renowned as a biker's paradise. However, it is a dream for every kind of traveler to tick Ladakh off their bucket list. From Buddhist monasteries preserving ancient relics and thangka paintings in their abode to pristine Himalayan lakes that add charm to its beauty, Ladakh has a lot to offer. 

There are no direct trains to Ladakh so when it comes to transportation, you can either go by road or flight. 

Keep in mind that flying directly to Leh would increase your chances of AMS. You need to acclimatize at least for 48 hours in Leh before going sightseeing. 

When it comes to taking a road trip, there are two routes to reach Leh Ladakh. One is via Srinagar while the other is from Manali. 

The Srinagar Leh route gives you the opportunity for a one-of-a-kind adventurous road trip to Ladakh. Stretching up to a distance of 434KMS, the route offers you a glimpse at the pristine beauty of Kashmir while giving you the chance to drive on some of the highest mountain passes of Ladakh.

The road conditions on the Srinagar Leh route are as follows: 

Sonamarg to Zojila Pass: The roads are moderately good for driving.  

Zojila Pass to Kargil: Fairly good conditions with a few bumps along the way.

Kargil to Leh: The roads are paved smoothly making it easy to drive.

On the other hand, The Manali Leh route offers the ultimate road trip experience to all the adventure enthusiasts. Stretching up to a distance of 474 KMS, the route offers the thrill of riding on jagged roads with the majestic view of the Himalayas in the backdrop. 

The road conditions on the Manali Leh route are as follows: 

Manali to Sissu via Atal Tunnel: The roads are fairly good for driving.  

Sissu to Baralachala Pass: Not as good as before but still extremely easy to drive upon. 

Sarchu to Moore Plains: The dirt tracks will make your ride bumpy.

Moore Plains to Leh: The roads are paved smoothly making it easy to drive.

The best time for a Ladakh road trip is from June onwards. The main reason is that all the motorable high passes that get closed in winters are accessible from thereon.

It also depends on the route that you’re taking to go to Leh. When it comes to the Manali- Leh route, it is roughly accessible for around 5 months. The best time to go to Leh via Manali would be from Mid May Late October. The passes open in early May sometimes. But, BRO only allows a few vehicles to pass through and it depends on the conditions of the roads.

If you’re traveling to Ladakh via Srinagar, then the best time would be from Late June to Mid October.

Nestled at an elevation of almost 11,500 ft Ladakh is a high-altitude region and if you're traveling from the plains, then you will start to face some difficulty. You might get hit by a wave of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) where your symptoms would include headache, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, breathlessness, and more. It is important to keep drinking water and give your body at least 48 hours so that it can get acclimatized properly.

You'll find ATMs in Leh as well as Kargil too. There are many regions in Ladakh where you won't find ATMs. The network is poor as well and hence you can't rely on online payments either which is why it's always a good idea to carry cash. 

BSNL works best in Ladakh. Airtel gets decent coverage in Leh and so does Jio. 

Note that only postpaid SIMs work in Ladakh. However, you can also buy a SIM in Leh itself by showing your passport or voter ID card. However that SIM would only work in Ladakh.

A handful of restaurants and hotels take credit cards but you'll have to pay the service tax along with it.

Ladakh is extremely vast and brims with a rich culture in every corner. For that reason alone, it is required that you take your time to explore the land. 

If you are planning a Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali or Srinagar then you'll need about 10-12 days. If flying directly to Leh, a minimum of 6 days will be required.  Rest depends on the number of days that you can afford to spend traveling

A medical kit is of utmost importance when traveling to Ladakh. You should always carry the below-mentioned things in your medical kit:

• Tablets for headaches, diarrhea, motion, and altitude sickness
• Dettol
• Bandages
• Cotton
• Strepsils
• Pain relief spray
• Crepe bandage
• Any personal medication advised by the doctor

In the wake of covid restrictions, you need to carry a Double vaccination certificate or a mandatory RT_PCR negative report that shouldn't be older than 72 hours. 

Other Documents required are Identity Proof ( Aadhar Card, PAN Card, Driving License, etc) and in case, you're traveling via your vehicle, then you need to carry all your vehicular documents as well. For Foreigners, a Passport with Visa and OCI Card is necessary.

There are certain Inner Line permits / Protected Area Permits that you need to acquire when traversing through these regions: 

  • Khardungla
  • Nubra Valley
  • Shyok
  • Changla Pass
  • Pangong Tso
  • Turtuk
  • Tang Tse
  • Chumthang Valley
  • Tso Moriri
  • Dha Hanu Valley

There are several restaurant options available in Leh. Depending on the kind of food you want to eat. The authentic cuisine includes Chhurpi (Cheese made out of Yak Milk), Gur Gur Chai (Butter Tea), Mokhtuk, Thukpa, Tingmo, etc. 

If we were to recommend, we'd recommend the combo of Tea and Maggi at the world's highest Maggi Point en-route Khardung La Pass.

If you want to have a taste of the best Tibetan food, then you can go to The Tibetan Kitchen. 

Restaurants like Lamayuru, Andrew, Bon Appetit serve north Indian food for those who don't want to experiment and have the taste of food that reminds them of home. 

There are lots of cafe's that you can explore in Leh Market.

However, make sure to carry dry snacks when traveling to Nubra and further because you won't find many outlets there.
