Your Ultimate Guide for an Unforgettable Bangalore to Ladakh Adventure
Trips are the most fun you can have while away from home, but if you are planning to travel to Ladakh then it definitely is going to be an experience of a lifetime. You can take Ladakh Trip Packages or you can plan it all on your own. However, if you want it to be less chaotic and less fussy while planning, you should definitely go for various packages to have the best Trip to Leh-Ladakh.
If you are from Bangalore and you are wondering how you can take a trip from Bangalore then you can look for Ladakh Tour Packages from Bangalore or just Ladakh Holiday Packages. If you have already been to Ladakh, you are aware of the magic of this beautiful land of the rugged terrains. So let’s see how you can plan your trip.
The best way to travel to Ladakh from Bangalore is to take a flight to Leh via Delhi, because there are no non-stop flights. So you can fly to Leh from Bangalore.
The other option that you have is that of going for the railways. You can take a train to Jammu Tawi and then take a bus to Srinagar. Upon reaching Srinagar, you can take another bus for Leh.
The bus will cost you somewhere around Rs.700 but since there are not many buses and those that run from there, their frequency is very less, so it is advisable that you book in advance.
A road trip from Bangalore to Ladakh requires a lot of planning because it is one heck of a trip, so that’s a given. So let’s talk about how you can plan your trip, without taking any Ladakh Tour Packages from Bangalore.
First of all, let me tell you that it’s not going to be as easy as traveling from Bangalore City to Bangalore Airport, for which choppers are being used because that is like traveling one end of the city to another but in this case you will be moving from one end of the country to another and it would take a lot number of days to complete the trip, so ensure that you have enough leaves from work before you begin to think about starting the trip. So it’s better that you either take a flight or train, or just go for some of the Ladakh Tour Packages from Bangalore, because that would be a more sensible thing to do.
However, if you still wish to take the road trip then there are ways that you can do it.
If your car is in excellent condition and if it’s an SUV, then ensure that the vehicle is capable of operating in the hilly areas, because it is very essential. The route to Ladakh is no regular route, so you need a vehicle that can withstand the roads and even the offroading part as well. You are going to have a lot of options for stopovers but you have to decide beforehand where you want to stop and where you don’t, or maybe not even stop at all and just enjoy the ride. The car trip will take approximately 7 days because its going to be a long one, however, if you keep stopping at various cities that you will come across then it might take somewhere around 10-15 days. Bike Trips
Now that you have opted out of Ladakh Tour Packages from Bangalore, and instead you are taking a car ride to Leh, your next option would be to complete the journey by bike. I know that you love your bike and you think you are a hardcore biker but still there are things that needs to be considered and kept in mind while taking a bike trip to Ladakh. You can get your bike shipped to Delhi/Chandigarh and fly directly from Bangalore to Chandigarh/Delhi and take your bike from there and continue with the journey.
Another option that you have is to get your bike shipped to Srinagar and then fly to Srinagar, taking the very beautiful Srinagar-Leh route and marvel at the natural wonders of Kashmir while on your trip to Leh. The best option, in my opinion, is to fly from Bangalore to Delhi and rent a bike from there. There are rental bikes available, so you can start your journey from Delhi and reach Leh on your rented bike. This is one of the best options when you don’t wish to take any Ladakh Holiday Packages, or any of the Ladakh Tour Packages from Bangalore. How Much Expense Can I Expect For The Leh Ladakh Trip?
