Tips for Traveling to Leh Ladakh in June

  • Most of the tourist places of Ladakh are situated in the proximity of the India - China border and due to this reason, tourists require to issue an inner line permit (ILP) from the District Magistrate’s Office, Leh. This permit can apply online on the official website of LAHDC but it requires getting stamped in-person from the DM office. The permit is not required for visiting Leh but other areas such as Pangong, Tso Moriri, and Nubra valley.
  • Ladakh is situated at a high altitude. Being in new climatic conditions and at low oxygen levels, you can face altitude mountain sickness if your body will not acclimatize. It is important to get yourself familiarized before moving to higher altitudes. It is important to look after mountain sickness symptoms and seek remedies to handle AMS in Ladakh. The major hospital is situated in Leh city only and at other tourist places, you can only find basic medical facilities. It is advisable to carry your prescribed medicines.
  • Carry sturdy and comfortable shoes as you need to walk a lot in Ladakh.
  • Pack basic travel essential kit, which consists of a torch with extra cells, phone charger, power bank, water bottle, goggles (for protection from sun rays), and sunscreen lotion with high SPF (50 or above).
  • It is important to have a small first aid kit in every traveler’s bag. Also, carry toiletries and dry eatables. Only BSNL and Jio network works in Ladakh.
  • Ladakh is not like any tourist place where you can find ATMs at every corner of the city. The availability of ATMs is strict in Ladakh. There are few places where you can swipe credit or debit cards. So, it is important to carry enough cash with you.
  • If traveling by road, then it is advisable to carry extra fuel as the last fuel pump on the Manali-Leh highway is in Tandi and the next pump is in Karu, which is 380 km away. On the Srinagar-Leh highway, fuel pumps are available, but still, it is recommended to carry extra fuel just in case the next fuel pump is out of service.
