Leh Ladakh Road Trip Overview

Leh Ladakh road trip takes a top position amongst any other road trip in India. Two weeks long and adventurous trip keeps you enthralled and exuberant till the last movement of your trip to Leh Ladakh. Basically, there are two routes to start your Leh Ladakh road trip. One route goes through Chandigarh and another one from Srinagar too. From where your journey will take a start is up to you, it’s all your decision to opt for.

With an extremely stunning sight view of Leh Ladakh, when you see this lovely place at an altitude over 11,400 feet above sea level, you got stuck for some time. Leh Ladakh road trip is just like going to a dream come true, either you are solo or taking a group with you, no matter, Ladakh is beautiful in a dramatic way for everyone who visits here at once.

Obviously, you get tired somewhere throughout your journey because it is self-driven and a long way but it doesn’t stop your enthusiasm anyway. If I covenant you that your Leh Ladakh road trip will be full of excitement and adventure, then it would not be wrong to say so.

To reach finally at Leh Ladakh, you have two ways to choose for- one way goes from Srinagar and next from Manali to Ladakh.

In fact, when you the right route from Srinagar, you further continue your journey alongside beholding the lovely villages, Lamayuru monasteries, Kargil war memorial, Himalayan valley, and much more. Also, before reaching Srinagar you have to cross the Jawahar tunnel, its length is 2.85 km. While passing through an exuberant Leh-Ladakh road trip, you travel across the many stunning locations such as Drass valley, Mulbekh, Moonland, Lamayuru, Alchi, Likir, Rohtang La, Keylong, Jispa, Darcha, Zingzing Bar, Baralacha La, Sarchu, Gata loops, Nakee La, Lachulung La, Tanglang La, Upshi, Karu, Pangong Lake, and Nubra valley.

Likewise, during the Leh Ladakh Road Trip you see the precise greenery of Sonmargh and picturesque villages located at the bank of the Sindh River. An open sight view with its essence and sweet sound mark Ladakh as a perfect destination to visit for. After reaching a distance of around 435 km, actually, you find true nature all around you. Srinagar environment helps you acclimatize easily rather than Manali. Because going through Srinagar, the temperature decreases slowly. So you get the time to acclimatize.

Next, you can also take another route from Manali for Leh, this route is equally appealing and attractive too due to its diversity. You pass through the panoramic valley and high mountains that compel to you to stay for a moment and spend some time with this place. Anymore, a scenic view does not stop you to explore and get a stunning photograph. You can witness this incredible and elegant village lifestyle, monasteries, jaw-dropping views, ancient culture, and lush green environment.

Finally, reaching Ladakh, when you see clouds touching mountains, you really get crazy after having this amazing view. It is just fantastic to stay right at that place. Now, you can continue your trip to Leh and catch the scenic view of the Khardungla pass.
