The hilly pocket of Leh is small enough to be traversed by foot. Yes, it is a good idea to carry your sports shoes to this place as the rocky, rough terrain will give you ample opportunity to use them to the fullest. For places near and around, you can avail of private taxis, shared jeeps, buses which are set to cost you anywhere between INR 150 to INR 1000.

The ride on buses can be rickety and if you suffer from mountain sickness, it is advisable to avail a taxi or jeep instead. In case you are looking for the ticket counter at the Bus Stand, let us tell you there is none here, you just hop onto the bus and pay the conductor when he comes around to you. If you are opting for a jeep, it is advisable to take the front seat as the seats in the back are too cramped and take away all the fun from the journey.

Do carry your medicines to Leh, as the high altitude, low oxygen and winding, curvy roads can all contrive to make you ill. Don't worry, accompanied by these medicines and our best wishes, you are going to have a great trip in these exotic locales.
