Ladakh Road Trip Travel Guide

This blog guide how you can do the Ladakh circuit in 4-wheeler starting from Delhi to Srinagar to Leh to Manali.

Day 1: Delhi to Jammu

Delhi to Jammu is almost 600+ KM, so you should Delhi before Sunrise to reach the Jammu on time. Delhi to Jammu is 4/6 Lane Highway which means you won’t face any difficulty in speeding up your car. However, keep track of speed limit as Police using speed guns to find overspeed vehicles and fine them right on the road.

Day 2: Jammu to Sonmarg

From Jammu, the roads become beautiful and now you’re driving in the mountains. Be careful when driving on this route as landslide happen very often in this region. Also, you’ll cross through India’s biggest road tunnel.
Before leaving the Jammu, make sure you inquire about the situations in Kashmir valley and plan your route according to it. Also, make sure you do not halt very often as there are so many beautiful places along the route and you’ll get late to reach the sonmarg.

Day 3: Sonmarg to Kargil

Check your tire pressure before leaving, as you’re about to enter Ladakh region and also you’ll encounter your first Mountain Pass, The Zojil-La Pass. Also, you can stop at Kargil War Memorial to pay tribute to soldiers who martyr in the Kargil War in 1999. Also, you notice that green mountains now disappear and you’ll see the barren mountains all around you. This is the first sign that you left the Beautiful Kashmir Valley and entered in Ladakh Region, the Coldest Desert.

Day 4: Kargil to Leh City

Next day you head to Leh city, the entire route is paved with asphalt and you can go with good speed to reach the Leh city. Also on this route, you’ll find some good places to make your halt such as Lamayuru, Zanskar-Indus confluence, river rafting in Indus, magnetic hills and two mountains passes.

Day 5: Take a Rest in Leh City and Acclimatize yourself

You need proper rest to acclimatize yourself at such altitude. You stay low and explore the Leh city by yourself. Some interesting places all around it and you can also do shopping for your family.

Day 6: Leh to Nubra Valley

If you still feeling headache then take one more day off. If you feel fresh then head out to the Highest motorable road in the world, the mighty Khardung La Pass. Try not to do any activity at the pass as many people fainted when they run or jump in excitement. Stop here for 15 minutes and then head to Nubra Valley where you can find the sand dunes. Also, you can stop Diskit Monastery for beautiful photography.

Day 7: Nubra Valley to Pangong Tso

There is two route to reach Pangong Tso Wari La and the Agham-Shyok route, however, when I went there, the Wari La route is closed so check before leaving Nubra Valley. Also start early as you’ve to cover long distance and you don’t want to miss the sunset at Pangong Tso.

Day 8: Pangong Tso to Tso Moriri or Leh City (Optional)

Choose if you want to go to Tso Moriri Lake or not. Many people want to avoid and they get back to the Leh City. Also, the route is bit difficult to navigate, so make sure you’ve proper knowledge to reach the Tso Moriri Lake

Day 9: Tso Moriri/Leh to Key Long

It’s time to say Goodbye to Ladakh region and head to Key Long in Himachal Pradesh. The entire route is amazing and also when you enter Himachal, you’ll find so many waterfalls till Manali.

Day 10: Key Long to Manali

The route from Key Long to Manali is again very scenic, you’ll see many lakes including Suraj Tal and you’ll pass beautiful Rohtang pass as well. You’ll spot green mountains with lots of small waterfalls all around the place.
Now you can do little party as you’ve successfully completed the Ladakh Circuit. Also, you notice that you suddenly feel fresh because of no more effect of high altitude.

Day 11: Manali to Delhi

Time to say Goodbye to the Mountains and head back to the capital where polluted air erase all freshness from your lungs and high noise disturb your peace. The road to Delhi is long so time it well, otherwise you’ll get very late when you reach Delhi.
