Tourism is a major source of revenue for Ladakh, a union territory in northern India. The union territory is located at an elevation of 11,400 feet and is part of the larger disputed Kashmir region. It is sandwiched between the Karakoram mountain range to the north and the Himalayas to the south. The districts of Leh and Kargil make up Ladakh. There are important Buddhist sites in the area, as well as an ecotourism sector. Ladakh’s tourism business was worth 600 crores (US$84 million) in 2020.

The Zoji-La Pass and Kargil route from Srinagar District in Kashmir Valley and the high-altitude Manali-Leh Highway from Himachal Pradesh are the two routes into the area from the outside. The Manali-Leh road is only available from May or June until October or November, when numerous passes have been cleared of snow. The Srinagar-Leh route is open from April to November or December, and is only partially obstructed by snow at Zoji La Pass during the winter.

Indigo, Vistara, GoFirst, and Air India offer year-round flights from Delhi to Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport in Leh. Jammu and Srinagar are also served by Air India on a weekly basis.

Except for the road to Zangskar, all roads in Ladakh are open all year. In the winter and spring, the Khardong-La Pass to Nubra might be closed by snow for several days. The Chang-La pass, which leads to Pangong Lake, is rarely closed.

From the towns of Leh and Kargil, buses cover the entire region. In Leh and Kargil, as well as in block heads such as Tangtse, Diskit, and Khalsa, taxis are available. Early in the morning, shared taxis depart Leh for Nubra, Kargil, Srinagar, and Zanskar.

Udhampur, the nearest railhead, is connected to all of India’s main cities and towns.
