Air Travel

The flight route to Leh presents the visitors with a spectacular panoramic view of snow-capped ranges spread out below, and the thrill of identifying particular landmarks. The twin peaks of Nun and Kun stand out high above the others. Tso-moriri lies intensely blue among bare brown hills. The Zanskar River snakes through the mountains, and one route of flight takes you directly above the Zanskar valley, with villages and gompas clearly visible. Far to the northwest, the giants of the Baltistan Karakoram dominate all the other peaks and ranges. Indian Airlines operates regular scheduled flights to Leh from Delhi, Chandigarh, Jammu and Srinagar. Jet Airway, a private airliner, also operate daily flights between Delhi and Leh.

Internal Transport - The cheapest way to travel within the region is by public buses, which operate on various routes according to fixed time schedules. However, the most comfortable and convenient, though expensive, mode of travel is by taxis, which are available for hire on the basis of fixed point-to-point tariff. For visits to the newly opened areas of Nubra, Changthang and Dah-Hanu, it is necessary to engage the services of a registered / recognized travel agency for making all requisite arrangements including internal transport. Detailed information about bus schedules, taxi tariff, travel agencies, etc. can be obtained from the tourist office. For the current taxi fare to various tourist destinations inquire at the Tourist Office.
