The best time to undertake the Himalayan Drive in Ladakh is typically during the summer months, from late May to early September.

From Chandigarh, Manali, Jispa, Leh, Pangong Tso and Nubra Valley to Srinagar via Kargil.

Ladakh, being a region with challenging terrains and high altitudes, often requires vehicles that are well-equipped for such conditions. So, try to drive a 4X4 or SUV if possible.

Once you book your seat with Adventures Overland, we will take care of your luxury hotel accommodation.

Ladakh’s altitude ranges from 9,000 to 25,000 feet above sea level, which can lead to altitude sickness or acute mountain sickness (AMS) for some travelers. It’s crucial to acclimatize properly by taking it easy for the first few days and staying hydrated.

Yes, permits are required for foreign tourists to visit certain restricted areas in Ladakh, including Pangong Lake, Nubra Valley, and Tso Moriri.

While no specific vaccinations are required for entry into Ladakh, it’s advisable to be up-to-date on routine vaccinations.

Yes, foreign tourists can use their valid international driving permit (IDP) along with their original driving license to drive in Ladakh.

Ladakh’s terrain consists of rugged mountainous landscapes, high-altitude passes, gravel tracks, and narrow mountain roads with steep inclines and sharp turns.

Essential documents include a valid passport with the necessary visas, international driving permit (if applicable), vehicle registration documents, travel insurance details, permits for restricted areas (if applicable), and emergency contact information.

Travel insurance is highly recommended for a road trip to Ladakh to cover medical emergencies, trip cancellations, lost luggage, and other unforeseen circumstances.

Travelers should be aware of the risks associated with high altitudes and take necessary precautions to prevent altitude sickness.
