Srinagar to Leh Taxi

The new season for Leh – Ladakh travel is about to begin in 2021 and as expected by this time of the year, the Ladakh taxi union has published the Leh – Ladakh Taxi Rates 2021 – 22. In this article today, We are going to share with you the latest taxi rates of the year 2021 – 22 for all the routes in Leh – Ladakh.

Leh Taxi Rates 2021 – No Hike in Rates

In accordance with the last 2-3 years of marginal increment in Ladakh taxi union rates, there has been a steady 8 – 10% increase in the Leh taxi rates for the year 2019. Till 2019, Inner routes in Ladakh have seen a steady hike including traveling to Nubra Valley, Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri. On a similar ground, the long routes of Leh Manali Highway and Srinagar Leh Highway have seen an increment of almost 10-12%.

However, this year in 2020 the Ladakh taxi union did not make any increment in the rates of taxis. They will continue to follow the same rates as of 2019.

This means that the trip to Leh Ladakh will not cost you more when you travel by taxis as compared to last year. However, given the terrain, I expect it to increase by 8-10% every year, and the Ladakh Union has done a great job in maintaining it in the last few years. I believe it is a very welcome move from Leh – Ladakh taxi union, and it will be interesting to see how the tourists approach the road trip to Ladakh in 2020.

People going first time to Leh – Ladakh must say or feel that rates of the Ladakh taxis are very high. With no increment in prices in 2020, some of them will still feel the same.

Where to get a self-drive car in Leh – Ladakh?

I am not aware of any company that provides cars for self-drive in Leh – Ladakh. No such self-drive car rentals exist in Manali / Himachal or Srinagar / Kashmir as well. So, the only option is to hire a local Ladakh taxi and request the driver to self-drive it on some sections of the tour 🙂 …

Otherwise, you can rent a self-drive car from Delhi or Chandigarh and travel

Can I take a self-drive car to Ladakh?

Unfortunately, you can only use the self-drive rented cars with black number plate and yellow number plate, just to enter Leh and exit Leh from Srinagar – Leh Highway or Manali – Leh Highway. However, you cannot use them for any kind of sightseeing within Leh – Ladakh to places like Nubra Valley, Tso Moriri, and Pangong Tso. For sightseeing within Ladakh, you will need to hire a Ladakh based taxi.

Are taxis rented outside Leh – Ladakh allowed?

Self-drive rented cars and taxis outside Ladakh are not allowed to do any sightseeing within Leh – Ladakh. You can use them for getting to Leh and getting out from Leh but not for any kind of sightseeing within Leh – Ladakh.

So, the self-drive cars you are taking must have a private number plate, mostly should be under your name, your wife’s name or your father’s name otherwise you will have to again hire a taxi within Ladakh and double pay for your local taxi without using it.
