Travel tips for Leh and Ladakh

  • Instructions says that only post paid numbers will work. Read it as, only BSNL post paid numbers will work. I am not saying Airtel or Voda doesn;t work, but they draw a blank in large tracts of the journey. So, if you really want to stay connected, get a BSNL post paid number before flying in.
  • You need a good winter jacket and gloves if you are not planning on staying indoors at Pangong.
  • Carry a torch, preferably an LED one which will draw less power and more hours per charge. There are areas where there is power only 3 hours a day in the evening, which is not enough sometimes to charge all your gadgets.
