The Leh Airport is the best way to get in and out of the union territory without having to do the back breaking but equally fulfilling road journey from either Srinagar or Manali. Make sure you book well in advance so you don’t have to pay a steep price for the flight ticket.
Great accommodation options
All over Ladakh regardless of which corner you are in. If you’re ready to pay you will surely get great accommodation. Remember Ladakh is a place which has accommodation starting from ₹1500 to ₹15,000 for a room per night depending on the category you decide to opt for. From home stays to luxury star hotels and resorts.
Extremely safe in Ladakh
The union territory without doubt is one of the safest if not the safest tourist destination in all of India. You’ll not find a single local misbehave or any tourist complain about theft or anything that would deem the place unsafe to tourists and especially couples.
Excellent network and Wifi
Gone are the days where Leh Ladakh had just BSNL. The union territory as of 2022 is pretty much. Around 97% covered with Airtel and Jio 4G network. The only thing to keep in mind is that you will need a postpaid sim to work in the union territory. Prepaid sims wont work and Vodafone network isn’t there in Ladakh. WiFi is also pretty much available all over Leh-Ladakh.
Leh’s main market in particular is paradise for shopping. You’ll need at least two full days if you plan on checking out every shop in the market. Remember bargaining is a skill which will come very handy and online payment is the best way to pay for anything you shop. Everyone in Leh market is digital when it comes to payment.
Rooftop dinner date
Plenty of options when it comes to roof top cafés and restaurants. The rooftop cafés make a romantic setting for a early evening dinner where you can catch a glimpse of the sunset and at the same time enjoy some good food
Good roads and vehicles
BRO has the roads taken care of, while the Ladakh Taxi unions have the vehicles taken care of and the two of them blend like bread and butter. So it’s as smooth as what it can be in terms of all effort to keep things safe.
Photography spots are infinite
Wherever you turn your camera you’ll find something worth clicking and always a spot that you’ll, as a couple, can be clicked at to help make a photo or video digital memory from your trip to Ladakh.
Adventure Road Trip and Rafting
A road trip around Leh-Ladakh is easily one of the most rugged and adventurous you will embark on as a couple so while things get bumpy along the road trip remember it’s all about soaking in the experience. If you’re the kind of couple that enjoys adventure beyond the usual then rafting in the mighty Zanskar river is an absolute must do activity.
Memorable and life changing
Every holiday as a couple has unique memories that come along with the trip but none will be more fulfilling than a road trip to Ladakh. There is something about Ladakh that will make the whole journey life changing no matter how social you’ll are as a couple you’ll end up making at least three new Ladakh friends along your road trip.
