How to Reach Leh.
Because of its remoteness and simplicity, Ladakh is called the Hermit Kingdom. Ladakh is linked by two roads to the mainland, namely Leh-Srinagar national highway and the Leh-Manali route.
These two roads are only accessible during the summer months and are blocked for more than seven months during the winter due to the closing of the Rohtang Pass in Manali, Zozilla Pass, Baralacha, and Changla pass.
Leh District is connected by roads to the Block Headquarters, via a road network. The Block Headquarters' average distance from Leh is 180 Kms. Bus services and other means of transport are very poor. Planning a Leh tour is a challenge without sufficient direction and knowledge due to poor road conditions.

AIR SERVICES in Leh and Ladakh:
The only way to reach Ladakh in winter is air, Air India operates regular flight services from Leh to Delhi along with Vistara as well as Go air, Spice jet.
