Tips for Traveling to Leh Ladakh in June

  • Most of Ladakh's tourist places are near the India—China border, so tourists must issue an inner line permit (ILP)  from the District Magistrate’s Office, Leh. This permit can be applied for online on the official website of LAHDC, but it requires getting stamped in person from the DM office. The permit is not necessary for visiting Leh but other areas such as Pangong, Tso Moriri, and Nubra Valley. If you take a tour from Indian Holiday, you don’t have to fret over the permits; our experts will get it for you.
  • Ladakh is situated at a high altitude. Due to new climatic conditions and low oxygen levels, you can face altitude mountain sickness if your body does not acclimate. It is vital to familiarize yourself before moving to higher altitudes. It is important to look after mountain sickness symptoms and seek remedies to handle AMS in Ladakh. The central 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 must walk a lot in Ladakh.
  • Pack basic travel essentials: 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).
  • Every traveler should have a small first aid kit in their bag. They should also carry toiletries and dry food. Only the BSNL and Jio networks work in Ladakh.
  • Ladakh differs from any tourist place, where you can find ATMs on every corner of the city. ATMs are strictly available in Ladakh. There are few places where you can swipe credit or debit cards. So, it is crucial to carry enough cash with you.
  • If traveling by road, 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 it is still recommended to carry extra fuel just in case the next fuel pump is out of service.
