Ladakh Inner Line Permits Available Online

75

In a very welcoming news, I will like to share with you all that starting 1st June 2017, Ladakh Inner Line Permits for domestic tourists will be available online. It indeed is a very good news for all the people planning their trips to Leh – Ladakh and are juggling with the GOVT holidays. This will ease out the process and eliminate the need for a middleman to procure these permit in advance.

In April 2017, authorities in Leh – Ladakh re-introduced the environment fee of Rs 400 and Inner Line Permits for domestic tourists as well. Foreigners need a Protected Area Permit which is different from Inner Line Permit needed by domestic tourists. In the year 2014, authorities had relaxed to visit inner line areas of Ladakh including Nubra Valley and Pangong Tso without the need of any Inner Line Permits for domestic tourists.

Leh – Ladakh Inner Line Permits Available Online

In this article, I will share some key points about Inner Line Permits for Leh – Ladakh and how you can apply for them online.

  • Ladakh Inner Line Permits (ILP) are required for Indian Tourists / Nationals (starting again in 2017) and Ladakh Protected Area Permits (PAP) are required for foreigners.
  • One needs to pay an environment fee of Rs 400 and inner line permit fee of Rs 20 per day per person to get these permits.
  • These permits are required in Ladakh in order to visit the inner line places like Nubra Valley, Khardung La, Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri, Dah, Hanu Villages, Man, Merak, Nyoma, Loma Bend, Turtuk, Tyakshi, Chusul, Hanle, Digger La, Tangyar (for trekking only).
  • Inner Line Permits will be available online from the official website www.lahdclehpermit.in. All domestic tourists should go through the website to obtain the inner line permits.
  • Protected Area Permits were already available online from the same official website www.lahdclehpermit.in. All foreign tourists should go through the website to obtain the protected area permits.
  • These permits are not required for traveling on Manali – Leh Highway or Srinagar – Leh Highway or Zanskar Valley.
  • These permits are not required for residents of J&K state and children below the age of 12 years. They can visit the protected area region in Ladakh by showing/carrying a valid Photo Id proof.
  • If you are planning to apply for these permits in person, then you can apply them at TIC Office, Opposite J&K Bank, Main Market, Leh. The office is open all working days (Monday to Friday) 09:00 AM to 07.00 PM.
  • You can also read more details on complete inner line permit process used previously at the link All you want to know about Inner Line Permits for Ladakh. This link also has a copy of permit form and application for you to download. Page 1 is Protected Area Permit applicable for foreigners. As a domestic tourist, you need to fill in Page 2 & 3 for Inner Line Permit. Then, you have to go to DC office in Leh and submit the application with valid Photo ID nationality proof and pay the per person fee of Rs 400 + Rs 20 x number of days you will be in Ladakh.

  1. Help me out with something please
    I would be visiting Leh from Manali in a couple of days
    Now i see that there 2 types of permits available on the govt website
    1. Visiting Rohtang Pass
    2. Beyond Rohtang
    Now logic says that i need the second one which i see is easily available unlike the first one.
    My question is, should I be getting just the “beyond Rohtang” one or should get both just to be on the safe side?
    Will i be Ok with just the second one?

    Hi Dheeraj,

    I looked at the online site to obtain the permit. After filling all the details it gives the permit and mentions that the fees is 500. I have selected the Direct and not a agent.

    But it does not provides an opportunity to pay that online. Does that mean I need to print this online permit and then submit this at Leh physically and pay the fees and give the ID card xerox? That step is still manual?

    I am bit confused, please help me with it.

    Thanks.

    Best Regards,
    Ankur

  3. Hi Deeraj,

    Having applied ILP online, where should we pay the amount and is the office working on Saturday and Sunday?
    If we are going to Hanle then where should the place be mentioned?

    • You have to make the payment at Tourist Info Center at Leh which remains open till 7 PM. I think the office is open on Saturday as well.

      BTW, since you need permit for Hanle, you have to apply the permit in person and get the permission from DC office in Leh.

    WE are a group of 4 leaving by SWift Hatchback from ludhiana on 23 Jun 2017. We need to return to Ludhiana by the night of 01 Jul 2017. Can u please suggest an itenary.

    • It will take 4 days to reach Leh from Srinagar side starting from Delhi with stop overs at Jammu, Srinagar, Kargil and 3 days to come back from Leh from Manali side to Delhi with stopovers at Sarchu, Manali. This makes it 7 days. 1 Day is required in Leh for acclimatization.

      Opt to go via Manali – Leh Highway and I will suggest that you refer the thread for more details on the route and night halts though it is of 9 days: Manali – Leh – Ladakh – Manali | Itinerary for 9 Days.

      • Rajesh kumar on

        I planned as follows
        23 Ludhiana to sonmarg
        24 sonmarg to leh/lamyuru
        25 leh local
        26 leh to nubra and back
        27leh to pangong and back
        28 leh to tso moriri
        29 tso moriri to sarchu
        30 searching to manali
        01 manali to ludhiana

        Pl suggest any changes if needed

  5. Hi dheeraj
    We are 7 people from delhi with one car ecosport and 3 Thunderbird our visit dates are 2 July

    2nd July manali
    3 rd July jispa
    4 th July karu army base
    5 th pangong tso stay at pangong
    6th karunga la stay at afs thoise
    7th thoise to sarchu
    8th sarchu to manali
    9th manali to delhi

    So the question is we will be needed inner line permit for leh for each person individual or one permit will be required and if we want to apply online how many days advance we can apply

    • I will avoid going to PAngong Tso directly and go to Leh first, take rest and permits and then go to Nubra and then finally Pangong Tso. Otherwise, there is high chance that one of you might fall sick due to AMS.

      You need to get the permit filled for every individual in the group for Inner Line Permit anytime when your journey is fixed. You need Beyond Rohtang Pass permit Rs 50 for each vehicle you are taking beyond Rohtang Pass

  6. Hello Dheeraj,

    We reach Leh on 1st July, which is a Saturday. Will the DC office be open on that day for us to get the permits and pay the environment fees?

  7. Hi dheeraj,
    We are in group of four and are probably arriving on 26 june which is eid I.e. govt holiday and are willing to move for nubra valley on 27th morning . Is it possible for arrange inner line permits from an agent there…If possible pl provide any contact no.s available with you…Also help me if I wish to visit hanle via chushul or chumathang route there is no option available with online system…how to apply?

  8. Naveen Dabas on

    Hi Dheeraj
    Planning to go Leh Via Kaza route
    Day 1 Reckong peo
    Day 2 Kaza
    Day 3 Keylong
    Day 4 Tsmo riri stay at Krzok
    Day 5,6,7 Leh
    Day 8 Nubra via Pangong
    Day 9,10,11 Nubra
    Day 12 Rest Day
    Day 13 start back for delhi via Manali Route
    Plz suggest whether this itinerary will do or I need to make any changes. We r flexible in stay options for 1-2 days
    Moreover I took inner line permit online. So please tell me whether it will work if I go directly to tso moriri from keylong as per my itinerary or I first need to pay the fee at leh.
    Thanks

    • Naveen, Day 8,9,10 should be Nubra Valley and then go to Pangong tso to stay last couple of days in Pangong Tso. Also, since you are coming back via Manali only why not go to Leh directly from Keylong and do Tso Moriri on the return.

      • Thanks lot for your reply.

        since we are traveling from Bangalore,

        as per our plan we will enter Leh after chandratal-pang-tsomoriri lake -pangong lake-nubra valley- OP Baba-Turtuk.

        Can you know anyone who can go and get the permit on behalf of us?

  9. Hey hi Dheeraj,
    Need some clarification about the inner line permits online,
    1) We are a group of five planning to visit leh
    do we have to apply for all five of us
    separately.
    2) We planning to leave kargil early morning
    will it be possible for us to get the permit
    issued once we reach leh on the same day
    Since we are thinking of leaving for nubra
    the next morning

    Thank you

    • 1. Yes, all 5 of you need to have the permits applied.
      2. I doubt it, better get it next day. It is not at all advised to leave for Nubra Valley without much acclimatization in Leh. So, you should spend one night in Leh to avoid AMS issues.

      • Ya we are planning for nubra the next morning…..but without permit we can’t leave…and to collect it and it will very late….so was thinking if we could get it done the previous day’s as soon as we reach leh from kargil….

        • It is difficult to get the same day in the evening. Better get it in advance through a travel agent, who will charge about Rs 200.

  10. Baldevsinh Chauhan on

    Hi Dheeraj
    We are following your common itinerary for Leh as below,
    1) Can you guide us how much days we need to tick for each division and what would be the date of entering the Leh.
    2) Also we have return train from Delhi on 30th June evening, so we might have one spare day, shall we add one more day in Leh or this is fine right now. Please suggest us some undiscovered places.
    3) Also in Nubra valley we wanted to see Turtuk Village so can you suggest how we should schedule our timings for those 2 days. where should we stay at that time.

    16 June – Srinagar
    17 June – Drass
    18 June – Reach Leh
    19 June – Leh
    20 June – Hunder (Nubra Valley) stay overnight
    21 June – Back to Leh
    22 June – Pangong lake (overnight stay)
    23 June – Leh (back from pangong lake)
    24 June – Leh (Rest day & last day)
    25 June – To Tso Moriri via chumathang (stay at Tso Moriri)
    26 June – Tso Moriri – Tso Kar – Debring to Sarchu (Overnight at Sarchu)
    27 June – Sarchu to Manali
    28 June – Manali to towards Delhi

    • Here are the replies:

      1. You can mention two days each for Nubra, Pangong – Spangmik, Tso Moriri circuits.
      2. I will suggest to add one day in Nubra to visit Turtuk
      3. Once you reach Hunder, you have an option to do a day trip to Turtuk or spend overnigth in Turtuk and next morning drive back to Leh skipping Panamik/Sumur which does not offer much.

      • Baldevsinh Chauhan on

        Thanks for the information. You are a lifeline for us now… thanks Brother.

        1. Can we go straight to Turtuk from Leh ? Can you recommend any place to stay in Turtuk ? So instead of staying at Hunder we will stay at Turtuk and come back to Leh but we do not want to miss the camel ride too.

        2. Also if we wanted to include Hanle village, can you advise where we can fit this in our itinerary ?

        • You can go to Turtuk from Leh but it is a long drive though doable. Doing Camel ride on the way back from Turtuk to Hunder and then to Leh is possible only if you plan to drive over Khardung La in the night or start from Turtuk very early morning so that you reach before the noon when camels are going.

        • Baldevsinh Chauhan on

          Hi Dheeraj,

          1) Are there any specific timings for the passes or any road we need be aware in our itinerary above, in case it gets closed by evening then we can drive accordingly.

          2) Also hope we do not have to take Rohtang pass permit if we are coming from Leh to Manali ??

        • No Passes have timings unless there is some issue and BRO enforces the timings on that day only if you are going to Ladakh. The only pass that has time restriction is Zojila Pass where traffic is allowed from Sonamarg to Kargil side in the afternoon and from Kargil to Sonamarg side up to 8 AM in morning

  11. Hi Dheeraj,
    I am not sure about the numbers of days in each circuit and I’ve already submitted the application online. Is there any way I can change it or can I to fill a new form in TIC even if I’m already registered online?

      • Thanks Dheeraj!
        There are two of us visiting for 5 days and a possible itinerary is:
        Day 1: Arrive at Leh in the morning. Rest and acclimatization + Visit Leh palace in the evening
        Day 2: Up till Lamayaru covering all the places in between, Magnetic Hill, Moonscape and the Gompas etc. Stay overnight at Lamayaru
        Day 3: To Nubra via Khardung La covering Diskit and Hunder. Stay overnight.
        Day 4: Cover Sumur and Panamik in the morning then to Spangmik via Wari La. Stay overnight in Spangmik.
        Day 5: Cover Chemery, Stakna Thicksey, Shey, Matho and Stok on the way back to Leh. Overnight at Leh
        Day 6: Leave Leh in the morning

        What all circuits should be selected and each for how many days? We also wanted to cover Korzok after Spangmik via Tsaga La and back to Leh via Taglang La. Is it possible to fit it in our itinerary?

        Also, can you please suggest a good taxi driver who would charge reasonably for the entire journey? And should we book accommodation on our own on the spot or pre-book it through the driver? We are skeptical about pre-booking the accommodation as we want to make sure that the place is clean and it fits our budget, but we’re not sure whether we’ll find it due to the season rush.

        • Hi Rishi,

          Some inputs below:

          1. Maybe on Day 2, come back for stay at Alchi. It will help being at lower altitude.
          2. Skip Sumur, Panamik. Also, if other vehicles are going from Shyok village route take the shorter one and avoid Wari La route.
          3. Cover couple of monasteries only not too many while coming back from Pangong Tso.
          4. Avoid packing any other places else it will become more hectic.

          You can check the nice, preferred list of accommodation options in entire Leh – Ladakh (Leh, Nubra Valley, Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri) including moderate (cheap budget hotels as well) in the series of articles starting on the link here

          For the leh – ladakh taxi union rate list 2017 – 18 including the contacts of some reliable taxi drivers within Leh – Ladakh, check the link here. You can get about 12-15% of discount by directly getting in touch with drivers and of course, talking in person rather on phone always help in bargaining more. You can call the local drivers directly to connect with them and check the more comprehensive List of Taxi Drivers for Ladakh – Srinagar – Leh – Manali with recommendations/reviews for DoW community members.

        • Thanks for the suggestions, Dheeraj! So the modified plan will be:

          Day 1: Arrive at Leh in the morning. Rest and acclimatization + Visit Leh palace in the evening
          Day 2: Up till Lamayaru covering all the places in between, Magnetic Hill, Moonscape and the Gompas etc. Stay overnight in Leh, as it’s closer to Nubra besides being at a lower elevation?
          Day 3: To Nubra via Khardung La covering Diskit and Hunder. Stay overnight. Would we have enough time to cover Sumur and Panamik before we go to Diskit, or is it not possible in morning?
          Day 4: Spangmik via Shyok if possible or Wari La. Stay overnight in Spangmik.
          Day 5: Cover a few Gompas, Hemis, Stackna, Ticksey, Shey on the way back to Leh. Overnight at Leh
          Day 6: Leave Leh in the morning

          Also please tell me which circuits should be selected in the online permit form and for how many days? I’m thinking Id #2 and #5 for 2 days each? Will #1 also need to be selected for Lamayaru on Day 2?

          Id Circuit
          1) Khalsi,Domkhar, Skurbuchan, Hanu, Baima, Dha in Khalsi Sub-Division.

          2) Khan:tong, Khalsar, Trlth upto Warsl and Varma Gonbo, Dlsket. Hunder, Turtuk, Pachathang. Tyakshl In Nubra Sub-Division.

          3) Upshl, TsomoRIRl/Korzok In Nyoma Sub-Division.

          4) Upshl, Dlpllng, Puga, TsomoRIRVKorzok In Nyoma Sub-Division.

          5) Kharu, Changla, Durbuk, Tangtse, Lukhung, Spangmik, Man-merag(Pangong Lake) in Nyoma Sub-Division.

          6) Upshi, Chumathan1t Mahe, Loma Bend in Nyoma Division.

  12. Hi Dheeraj,
    I like the way you make visiting Himalayas so Easy.At least over the Web :).
    Last time in 2015 i visited SPITI all alone on my bike, without pre-booking anything, and only relying on ur articles and suggestions. And trust me it was the best Trip till now. Some Times being Random/Nomadic,makes the journey awesome.

    This time though i am planning to Visit Leh with my brother as a pilion, wanted to check, How many days will it take me to get the ILP’s Ready on reaching LEH, if not applied Online. Are there any Travel Agents in Leh which can help me achieve that Quickly after reaching there.

    Also, for the Permits needed to cross rohtang, apart from applying it online. Is it something which can be arranged by the Travel Agents there.

    Which one of above permits is more difficult to achieve. And is it something that can spoil an itinerary, if not arranged properly.

    • I totally agree with you Sawan and that’s where the fun lies, knowing the unknown. ILP process is very trivial and you can easily get it in just a couple of hrs only. No need to arrange it through any agent as well. Since you will be applying Beyond Rohtang Pass permit, it is also easily available.

  13. Ankur Sharma on

    HI DHEERAJ,
    I will be travelling to leh by my own car registered in the name of my father. Will it be allowed by the taxi union there to go to inner parts of leh like nubra valley, pangong and tsomori lake,?
    Also we are a group of 4 people. So we need to get a single person registered for that online or all the 4 persons have to register separately ?
    Also I will be travelling by the following itinerary
    Day 1 – Kargil to Leh
    Day 2 – Leh to hunder ( Nubra Valley)
    Day 3 – Hunder to Pangpong
    Day 4 – Pangpong to Leh
    Day 5 – Leh to tso Moriri
    Day 6 – Tso moriri to Sarchu
    Please let me know what are the circuits we have to tick in the permit for the above mentioned itinerary.

    Please help with the above queries. I will really be very thankful to you.
    and I am a very big fan of your blog. I have been reading your blog since 15 and now finally I have the chance to visit leh.

    • Ankur, there will be no issues with your car as you can easily prove the relationship even with a driving license. You need permit for all people traveling with you as permit is applied per person. Regarding your plan, it would look much better if you rest one day in Leh after reaching from Kargil. You need to tick Pangong – Spangmik, Nubra Valley, Upshi – Chumathang, Tso Moriri ones.

    • Ankur Sharma on

      Thanks a lot for your information Dheeraj.
      Please advice us the places we can visit in between following the above itinerary ( places where we should stop, stay, eat and places worth visiting). I will be following the above itinerary as we are short of time and has to be back to delhi.
      Please tell the names of the places we can visit following the above itinerary.
      Also please give the contact detail of some agents who can arrange a permit in advance for us.
      Thanks a lot for your help Dheeraj Sir.

  14. Hi
    Pls let me know whether ILPs can be obtained from the website now or do we need to visit DC office in person with original I’d proof. I ‘ll be reaching Leh on 13th June 2017 at around 2pm and will be going to Nubra on 14th morning. Will I be able to collect the ILP on 13th say at 3 pm in person if I apply online today.

  15. Hi Dheeraj,

    I was trying to fill up the inner line permit online. However for tsomoriri, there are 3 circuits and from what I know If i simply want to go to tso morir from leh and then head back to Manali I would have to cross Chumathang and Puga while coming towards Sarchu from tso moriri. However both these places are on separate circuits. Should i be ticking all 3 even though I won’t be traveling from pangong directly. Any info would be helpful. Thanks!

    tso moriri related circuits on the online form:
    3 Upshi, TsomoRiRi/Korzok in Nyoma Sub-Division.
    4 Upshi, Dipling, Puga, TsomoRiRi/Korzok in Nyoma Sub-Division.
    6 Upshi, Chumathang, Mahe, Loma Bend in Nyoma Division.

  16. Naman Gupta on

    Hi Dheeraj,

    After reaching leh on Monday12 june Night, we are planning to leave early in the morning for Nubra/Pangong lake.

    So if we need to apply permit in person, then we won’t be able to leave for Pangong/Nubra the same day.. right?

    Also let me know if this is feasible and enjoyable, Leave Tuesday morning for Pangong lake, stay at night there, then leave in the morning for Nubra valley and stay there in night and next morning comes to leh.??

    Appreciate your help in both the queries.

    • Nama, in any case you should not do it and rest in Leh so that you do not become sick due to AMS by directly going to Pangong Tso or Nubra. Also, Nubra Valley must be done before Pangong Tso.

  17. Hi,
    Its a great piece of information. Me along with 3 of my friends are planning to visit leh via manali in the 2nd week of june. We were worried about obtaining ILP in leh; but i guess now we can easily obtain an ILP. However, I have a query regarding the same. After applying for ILP online, where shall we get our permit? Will we get a soft copy or do we need to collect it from the D.C’s office? We have some more queries regarding our trip. Hoping for a quick response from you.
    Thank you.

    Regards,
    Bhumi

    • Bhumi, it provides the option to Print the permit which you can do from the website. However, I feel it is still being worked upon and there are bugs/gaps in it. I will let time pass a bit and see how things get updated on the website. My main concern is that it does not give you an option to Pay the fee too. So, I will wait for it to get mature a bit.

      • Thank you for your reply. Could you please update us on the current weather condition in manali and leh. Is it raining there? And do we need to carry our raincoats? We are reaching manali on 18th of june and will be leaving for leh on 19th june by bike. We even heard that there has been landslides in the manali leh highway. How far is this true?

        • Weather changes in the Himalayas in a matter of days and 18th is a long way to go. Landslides are pretty common in the initial days of opening and can never be avoided in any trip any time of the year. So, be mentally prepared to spare some time with it. Once you cross Baralacha La pass, you enter a rain shadow region where there is not much rain that happens.

  18. Hi Dheeraj

    A great piece of information you have provided. Last year I spent 1 and half crucial day to get these permits from DC office as ‘SAHAB daure per the’ :-)(typical excuse). Can you also please hand hold in application process on website. Few Queries:

    1. Can i deposit the environmental fees (INR 400 /Person) and per human fees(INR 20 per day) online only.

    2. What does Direct and Agent Option means? If I select direct, do I need to visit local office in Leh to collect the permit or everything will be online only.

    Sorry, if I am a bit silly in asking the queries 🙂

    • Seriously Sudeep, what I feel is that the site is still being worked upon and there are bugs/gaps in it. I will let time pass a bit and see how things get updated on the website. My main concern is that it does not give you an option to Pay the fee too. So, I will wait for it to get mature a bit. They should be allowing the payment for Direct as well. As a tourist, you have to apply for the permit as direct only.

  19. Baldevsinh Chauhan on

    Hi Dheeraj
    Thank you for the wonderful information.
    1. So PAP (protective area permit) is only for foreign tourists & ILP (Inner line permits) is for Indian Tourist. please advise.
    2. Do we (Indian tourists) have to take any other permit except ILP ?
    3. Do Indian tourist can travel to all areas with ILP or has to take PAP permit ?

    Right now only PAP is showing on the website link mentioned above, ILP will start from 1st June if i read it right.

    • 1. Yes, as the article says.
      2. Not in Ladakh, only ILP is required.
      3. ILP is applicable for Indians, PAP for foreigners for all the places.

      Yes ILP should start from 1st June. what I feel is that the site is still being worked upon and there are bugs/gaps in it. I will let time pass a bit and see how things get updated on the website. My main concern is that it does not give you an option to Pay the fee too. So, I will wait for it to get mature a bit. They should be allowing the payment for Direct as well. As a tourist, you have to apply for the permit as direct only.

      • Baldevsinh Chauhan on

        Hi Dheeraj,

        Thanks for the prompt feedback. Right now its letting us registered but not going to the payment page.

        • Yes, they have not updated how to make the payment for the permit yet. In coming weeks, I am sure they will come up with some instructions on how to get the payment done and apply for multiple people.

  20. Dear Dheeraj,
    “If you are planning to apply for these permits in person, then you can apply them at TIC Office…”
    Does that mean the online permit site intended for agents only?
    Can you clarify a bit?

    Thank you.

  21. Hi,
    I am a Kashmiri and living in Delhi. I no not have any photo id of J&K state. I have a delhi voters ID or passport. Do I still require this permit?
    Thanks

    Hi,

    I couldn’t find Hanle anywhere in the list to apply for permits. Is it covered under any of these circuits?

    1 Khalsi,Domkhar, Skurbuchan, Hanu, Baima, Dha in Khalsi Sub-Division.

    2 Khardong, Khalsar, Trith upto Warsi and Yarma Gonbo, Disket, Hunder, Turtuk, Pachathang, Tyakshi in Nubra Sub-Division.

    3 Upshi, TsomoRiRi/Korzok in Nyoma Sub-Division.

    4 Upshi, Dipling, Puga, TsomoRiRi/Korzok in Nyoma Sub-Division.

    5 Kharu, Changla, Durbuk, Tangtse, Lukhung, Spangmik, Man-merag(Pangong Lake) in Nyoma Sub-Division.

    6 Upshi, Chumathang, Mahe, Loma Bend in Nyoma Division.

    Regards,
    Poornendu

    • Poornendu, I will say Hanle is not covered under any of these and for Hanle it might be the case that you need to apply the permit in person and online permits are not available for Chusul, Hanle, Tsaga villages.

    Hi Dheeraj,
    Thanks for posting this. I may be mistaken but on the second page of this online form Hanle is not mentioned as part of any of the circuits. Does this mean Hanle is off limits for domestic civilians?

    • Not really, it means either they have not updated the site properly with all scenarios like option for number of people, how to pay the fee, bugs, off tourist places like Hanle, Chusul, Tsaga, how to make the payment, etc.. It seems like they have rushed in making it online, sorry but true.

      Let’s wait and see if it gets matured in time to come. Also, else it may be possible they decided to keep those permits applied in person only.
