Nestled in the Trans-Himalayan region, in the state of Jammu & Kashmir in North India, Ladakh has, in recent times, become one of the most popular summer holiday destinations in India. Riding across high altitude mountain passes, visiting monasteries, and camping by some stunning high altitude lakes are the major allure of Ladakh.Besides spell binding landscapes, Ladakh is renowned for its ancient Buddhist monasteries. Ladakh is often dubbed ‘Little Tibet’ as it shares an international boundary with Tibet and plays host to a sizable population of Tibetan BuddhistsAlthough a trip to Ladakh has a lot to offer, tourists are required to take some precautions since it is mostly a barren land and has low atmospheric pressure and low oxygen levels at higher altitudes.In this article, I’d like to mention some important points that every tourist planning a trip should know and answer some frequently asked questions in travel forums online.The most common questions are related to acclimatization, ATMs, Petrol Pumps, acute mountain sickness, and innerline permits as well as how long Ladakh tour itineraries tend to be.All of my tips are based on my personal experience in the region.The good news is that Indians don’t need to obtain inner line permits to visit destinations in Ladakh. Well most of it. For some areas like Chusul, Man, Mirik (Pangong to Tso Moriri direct route), you still need to obtain and carry inner line permits.

As per the new circular issued by the office of District Magistrate of Leh, Indian Nationals will no longer need to apply for inner line permits to visit certain inner areas like Turtuk, Panamik, Khaltse, Pangong, Changthang, Hunder, Nubra Valley Tso Kar, and Tso Moriri etc. in Ladakh.You will, however, need to carry your Nationality ID proof (Driving Licence, Voter ID etc.) which will have to be presented at certain check posts where earlier Indians were required to submit a copy of an inner line permit.But still, if you are on a motorcycle and your route involves crossing or traveling to Hanle, Chusul, Tsaga, beyond Loma bend, Chumur, Marsimik La, and Batalik sectors, then you’d still need to apply for and obtain inner line permits as per the earlier procedure.The new rules for inner line permits will really help those travelers who don’t want to come back to Leh after Tso Mori Ri and head straight to Manali which would save them a precious day.I’d personally advise against coming to Tso Mori Ri from Manali directly as it would most likely lead to acute mountain sickness
