We are planning to for a road trip to Leh via Srinagar-Leh highway from delhi ( 19 May 2018)
Wanted to know about the road conditions during that time.. ? and i am assuming all the sight seeing places are open in Leh during that time. ?
Ajit, Srinagar – Leh Highway is already open and by late May, the road conditions will be stabilized too. All sightseeing places in Ladakh will be open too.
Thanks Dheeraj for the details , i checked your blog on Srinagar to Leh by road in 2 days and halting at Kargil for a night stay, but will it be possible to reach Leh on same day..because google shows just 10 hours drive from srinagar, is there any specific reason we will take 2 days because of road conditions , traffic or any other reason.. ?
Do not rely on Google when you make a trip to the mountains, there are still some things that Google can’t do 😀
There are few reasons,
1. It is high altitude and your body need acclimatization for it and hence, gradual ascend is suggested. Sleeping at Kargil before Leh helps you out in it else you might end up with AMS.
2. Srinagar to Kargil will take you about 7-8 Hrs with stops, sightseeing and then Kargil to Leh is another 7-8 hrs with stops and sightseeing.
