Best way to reach Leh from Delhi

Hi All,

Doing research on how best to reach Leh from Delhi. Planning a tentative trip during second week of September for 6-7 nights.

So do I take the road from Manali or Srinagar? Flying to Leh seems expensive if I do not opt for a package deal.

If I take the road where do I stay overnight while travelling from Manali or Srinagar.

Any suggestions for stay in Leh? Which accomodation would you recommend? Ladakh Sarai seems interesting due to yurt styled accomodations.

Thanks in advance

Dear Sanjeev

We were on Leh trip from 7th Sep to 15th Sep 2012

This time is best for Leh,being off season every thing on discount hotel,taxi.,flight

For September you can get return ticket in july Rs 8000/ to Rs 9000/, best way to reach Leh

Delhi to Leh via Srinagar by road needs 4 days,with halt at Jammu,srinagar,Kargil

Delhi to Leh via Manali minimum 3 days

Srinagar to Leh is better than Manali

Ladakh Sarai is far away from Leh town

If you want to spend that much than Ladakh residency,Druk ladakh

For budget Oriental guest house very good ,its C wing having A class rooms

Dear MandarPande

Acclimatisation is better on Srinagar-Leh route as height of passes is less,so gradual increase in altitude as compared to Manali-Leh route

Sleeping altitude is the key factor in altitude sickness . This makes planning the highest night in your life in the beginning of your trip a bad idea : don't sleep in Sarchu coming directly from Manali.

Hi Pradeep,

My friend and I are planning a trip to Ladakh between 8th and 18th August. We are planning to take a train from Delhi to Jammu. Thereafter we plan to go to Ladakh from Jammu via road. What do you think about the journey from Jammu to Ladakh. Or shall we go to Srinagar and then go to Ladakh via road. Any help on this would be appreciated.
