LOOKING FOR LADAKH TOUR PACKAGE FROM KOLKATA IN 2024 HOLIDAYS?
A surreal landscape surrounded by the sky-piercing peaks of the snow-capped Himalayan, Zanskar and Karakoram ranges, and adorned with crystal waters of the Shyok, Zanskar and Indus rivers, Leh, in Jammu and Kashmir, is the main city in the Ladakh region, one of the coldest deserts in the world. Perched at a height of over 11,000 ft above sea level, the city of Leh is a haven of adventure sports. Its rugged terrain and gushing rivers provide ripe opportunities for activities like trekking, river rafting, camping, mountain climbing and biking. As the winter months approach, the city is enveloped in a blanket of snow, making it a paradisiacal setting for winter sports. The renowned Chadar Trek starts from the village of Chilling, 66 km away, and mostly covers the frozen area of River Zanskar. Throughout the adventure, trekkers are walking on precarious icy formations, staying in caves filled with stalactites and stalagmites and encountering other snowy landscape. On a Ladakh Tour Package from Kolkata travelers can experience the extravagant beauty of the place.

What is the best time to travel Leh Ladakh?
It is always nice to plan your journey in June to mid – July when the roads to Ladakh are open from both Srinagar as well as Manali sides. In addition to it, this is the time when you find a good amount of snow on the roads, especially June.
However, please keep in mind that road conditions hardly improve on Manali – Leh road and remains almost quite challenging/adventurous throughout the season. It improves towards the end of the season that is September or October but by that time snow is all gone and the risk of road closure increases especially towards the end of October.
So, you need to be prepared for all the adventure that Manali – Leh Highway offers a traveler in June – July and the situation worsens when the monsoon hits Northern Indian in late July and August.
In monsoon/rains, you will need to face challenges almost up to Baralacha La pass with slush on the roads beyond which it becomes a bit dry as you enter the rain shadow region of Ladakh.
IMHO, whatever best window to visit Ladakh you will get so that you avoid monsoons, see/experience snow and all roads are open for you will be like 15th June – 15th July window.
If you want to see beautiful colors of Ladakh, then the second half/late of September is THE best time to visit Leh – Ladakh when these colors are oozing and burning out vividly. Of course, the road conditions get better in late September type when rains reside in the region completely. So always keep extra days in your hand if you have plan for Ladakh Package Tour from Kolkata in winter.
How many days do I need for a Leh Ladakh road trip?
It will take four days to reach Leh from Srinagar Leh Highway starting from Delhi with stopovers at Jammu, Srinagar, Kargil. Then, it takes three days to come back to Delhi from Leh using Manali – Leh Highway with stopovers at Sarchu/Jispa/Keylong & Manali.
This makes it seven days. Then, you need at least one day is required in Leh for acclimatization. So, overall in just eight days, you can cover Manali Leh Highway, Srinagar Leh Highway and Leh town only.
Now, at least three days are required to travel for sightseeing to Nubra Valley and Pangong Tso using the direct route from Shyok village.
So, a total of at least 11-12 days is required to make a road trip to Leh Ladakh that makes some sense.

THINGS YOU MUST CARRY FOR YOUR LADAKH TOUR PACKAGE FROM KOLKATA
As a traveller, you must be prepared for any circumstances while travelling. There may appear any harsh situation which you can control with some basic things you carry. Here is some list of them :
Identity Proof : Always carry your original ID proof with you as Kashmir is the most sensitive part of India and anytime situation may go wrong. In that case it is only your ID proof that proves your nationality. So carry your Voter Card / Aadhaar Card / Driving Licence with you.
Keep / inform nearby contacts with you : If you have any contacts near that region / state like in Kashmir, Delhi, Haryana etc, let them inform about your journey or keep their address and contact no with you so that for any tough situation you can contact them for any help.
Medicines : This is one of the most important things in your travel kit or hand bag. Always carry basic medicine for fever, headache, vomiting, stomach upset and prescribed antiseptics, antibiotics, antacids and painkillers along with inhalers, pain relief sprays, band-aid, bandage & ointment for safe and secure journey.
Warm clothes and Jackets : Depending on your journey date you need to carry light (April – Oct) or Heavy (Nov – March) woollen clothes with you. Places like Gulmarg, Sonmarg and Pahelgam are very chilling throughout the year hence take proper precautions. It is advisable to carry water proof jackets or windcheater to avoid unseasonal rains.
Trekking Shoes/Boots : If travelling icy places like Gulmarg or Sonmagr during cold season, it is better to wear your own high thigh boots or gumboots to safe guard your legs though you can rent it from local stores.
Dry Fruits : Trust me, this is a must to be in your travel bags or hand bags. Kashmir is a hilly area and landslides may halt and stuck you in a place for long time. In that case only dry fruits can keep your hunger in control and alive.
Indeed the list is huge. Here we have provided some basic necessities to keep with you while travelling in Ladakh. In spite of the above listed things there are many to add on your item list like moisturisers, cold cream, extra carry bags, umbrella, adequate money, debit cards, credit cards, torch, candle, match stick, gas lighter, small rope, small knife, camera etc.
