How To Reach Ladakh from Delhi?
There are two ways from Delhi to Ladakh, one is by road and the other one by air.
Delhi To Ladakh by Road
Ladakh is approximately 970 KMs from Delhi. The most popular among youngsters is a road trip to Ladakh because of the thrilling adventure that it brings along with it. The open air, the view of the rugged terrains, and the enchanting valleys as if they are trying to convey something, a mystery, or the story untold. It is an experience of a lifetime and none who have been to this place have ever regretted the decision of making this trip.
Manali-Leh Route: It is the most common and convenient route that is followed for the road trip from Delhi. You start from the country Capital following the Chandigarh Manali route and reach Leh. One can stop at several places en route Leh such as Sarchu which is one of the most popular halts among the travellers. It also has tented accommodations available and usually travellers take night halts here. After Sarchu, you will come across Gata Loops which is the 21 hair pin bends that will leave you awestruck with its beauty and no amount of words can do justice to the stunning views that one witnesses. Another option that we have is Jispa which is also a quaint village surrounded with the backdrops of the Himalayas. This is another halt that travellers prefer while traveling on the Manali-Leh Route.
One might ask that if there are flights available then why should one go via road. Well, Ladakh is located at a high altitude and one needs proper acclimatization to avoid any kind of health problems that might occur. Since at high altitudes, the level of oxygen drops and acclimatization is necessary to move further. Apart from that, you get to enjoy the stunning views of the valley and you can stop anywhere, take pictures to flex on your social media. You do not have that option when you fly directly. Besides, road trips have their own charm so there is no comparison to that.
Srinagar-Kargil-Leh Route: Depending upon the number of days in your hand you can also choose the Srinagar-Kargil-Leh Route which is comparatively longer than the Manali-Leh Route. With this option, you can also enjoy Kashmir along with Ladakh. En route visit the Kargil War Memorial. Reach Kargil, which is one of the two divisions of Ladakh, the other one being Leh. Enjoy for a day and then get ready for Leh which is the largest division or district of Ladakh.
