I am Moinul from Bangladesh. Hope you are fine.
I was planning to visit Ladakh at the last week of June, 2018. Our plan to enter Ladakh region through Srinagar – Kargil – Leh highway. Then visit surrounding areas of Leh, Khardung La Pass, Diskit, Hunder, Pangong Tso and move to Manali through Leh – Manali highway. Unfortunately, we just came to know that Inner Line Permits for Nubra Valley & Pangong route are not issued from Leh DC office. As we have already completed airline ticketing for Kolkata – Delhi-Srinagar & Chandigarh-Kolkata route, we are not is the position to cancel those tickets. At this situation, I need your suggestion/advise on the followings:
1. As a Bangladeshi, do we need to obtain Inner Line Permit from MHA at Delhi to use Srinagar – Kargil – Leh highway & Leh – Manali highway?
2. As a Bangladeshi, do we need to obtain Inner Line Permit from MHA at Delhi to visit Spiti Valley?
Your guidance & support is highly need for us to reorganize our tour plan.
Thanks & regards,
1. There is no need of permit to travel on Srinagar – Leh Highway and Manali – Leh HIghway. So, you can travel on these two highway and explore Zanskar Valley instead of Ladakh inner line areas and travel these routes. Zanskar Valley do not need the permits too.
2. Spiti Valley does also require permits and I believe the process will be same for inner line regions in India.
one more question. Can we obtain Inner Line Permit for Spiti Valley from Keylong?
In addition, appreciate you to please Major places to visit in Zanskar Valley.
Moinul, you can check: Zanskar Valley – Most Common Itinerary
You need to get inner line permit for Spiti Valley as well from MHA
one more question. Shall we get moderate accommodation at Upshi?
There are few guest houses and dhabhas offering rooms for stay at Upshi.
I just came to know the info in few web sites that foreigners travelling upto Kaza from Manali/Keylong, do not required to have inner line permit. Is it the fact? If yes, as Bangladesh, can I be visit/travel upto Kaza without inner line permit.
Thanks in advance.
Yes, if you travel not beyond Kaza, then you can travel without a permit. The permit is required from Kaza and beyond. So, you can stay at Rangrik, 7 KMs before Kaza.
Many thanks Dheeraj.
One more question. Sorry, I am asking too many questions.
Can I visit Chandratal, Kaza City n Pin Valley in this case without permits?
Thanks in advance.
You can visit Kunzum Pass and Chandratal for sure without permits, then I think I have not seen restriction for Ki, Kibber, Gette, Tashigang, Langza, Hikkim, Komic needing permit but I may be wrong. Visiting Kaza and beyond requires a permit by definition of an inner line, so I will not recommend it though Kaza should not be an issue as one has to reach Kaza to apply for the permit to travel beyond. Then Pin Valley, Tabo etc.. are beyond Kaza.
