The drive was to Srinagar from Delhi via Leh. We were the participant with Mahindra Adventure. Beautiful mountain range mesmerising beauty and there is no words to describe. We have passed through the high mountain passes. Are beautiful though a bit dangerous. Mahindra adventure and XSO team took all the care for a comfortable and safe journey throughout the whole drive starting from accommodation, food and the car. To enjoy the roads and the beauty of the nature either drive a car or a Royal En-field yourself.

It is short visit from Delhi. On your way to Leh try to get a window seat on the left hand side of the flight. Provides a great view of of the mountain and approach into the valley before landing. It was an early morning flight. Travel light and keep a warm jacket which you need at the time of landing in Leh. Getting in and out of the Airport was hassle free. Tour operators provide car pick up to the hotel. They are very well organised and vehicle provided are clean and well-maintained. Initially you may feel shortness of breath. Take it is easy and walk slowly if you have to walk up to the parking lot.

The journey was good. Please book flight tickets at least 3-4 months prior the tour to get cheapest flight. I purchased the tickets for just 2200 and the tickets rose to 17000 within one month of the tour date. Yes. do not forget to click the natural terrain below and be quick to keep cameras in your bag before getting down at Leh as the Airport is governed by the Indian army and photography is a strictly prohibited.

Started journey from world class airport of new Delhi with all kind of facilities, shops. Air India flight was good. Reached Leh in 2 hours. You will fly above the mountains of Dras. Kargil and Leh. So you can enjoy view from air itself. Don't forget to carry camera or camcorder. Leh Airport is also good. Good if you compare airports situated at high altitude.

Ladakh is a very beautiful province in India which is less explored and is still pure and full of beauty. People will enjoy this place like no other. People who love peace, serenity, calmness, it's an amazing place and one should see the view when the flight lands and touches the ground.
