Distance to Leh from Delhi is hardly 1 hour 25 min of flight time. But this is sufficient to give you awesome and breathtaking views of snow covered peaks of himalayas, rohtang pass. It is better you take a day rest once you land to Leh because of its high altitude. And then start various road trips to see the natural beauty, Buddhist monasteries.

I visited Leh this month for 3 days short trip with my wife by Air India w.e.f. 12/04/2016 to 15/04/2016. Best airlines of India with all respect. Crew staff members are very co-operative and helpful. Food served by airlines is very hot and tasty. I strongly recommended Air India. Air India is pride of India.

With limited flights to Leh, Air India is chosen because of its service, time and support service in case of flight cancellation. Which is very often in Leh sector. Routine food from Air India. T-3 Terminal at Delhi is one of he best whereas Leh, although a small Airport but has good maintenance and cleanliness.

Overall, experience was very good, we took early morning flight from New Delhi Terminal 1. Check-in was smooth. Flight schedule was on time with landing at Leh Airport within schedule. On flight pre-booked meal was okay. Captain was courteous enough to explain about the route over the places we flew.

A nice place with near proximity to the Leh main market but located a bit off lane with less noise and traffic for peace. It's located exactly back side of the Leh Palace and short cut by lane takes one to the market in 5 mins by walk. Appearance is stand Ladakhi look with wooden work and...more »

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.
