How To Get Here
Making your way to goSTOPS Leh is fairly easy, but in case you haven’t figured it out, here’s some information on getting to Leh.
Getting To Leh By Air
Leh’s Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport (IXL IATA) shares fairly good connections with other major airports nearby. Several flights make their way to the airport throughout the year, and in fact, flying in is your only option in the winter. Delhi, Chandigarh, and to an extent, Srinagar, are your three best bets. Our recommendation is to book your flights before all else and make sure your travel itinerary has a few days of flexibility. Leh’s weather can be erratic, so it’s important to account for delays.
Getting To Leh By Train
Traveling to Leh by train isn’t the most feasible of options. For one, Leh itself has no rail line or station, neither local nor inter-city. The closest train stations are in Chandigarh and Pathankot, neither of which are exactly close by. It takes a long, tiring three-day journey for you to get to Leh from both destinations.
Getting To Leh By Road
One of the common road trip routes mentioned frequently is the drive from Manali to Leh. It takes over 12 hours, and while it can be quite scenic, it comes with several cons. For one, the drive is long and the sharp curves of the road are tricky to navigate. If you still want to get here by road, consider the state and private buses. From July to September, you can hop onto Himachal Pradesh Tourist Development Corporation (HPTDC)’s Deluxe bus from Manali. State-run buses also ply these routes from Manali and Srinagar during the open months.
Getting To goSTOPS Leh
goSTOPS Leh is a convenient 10 minutes away from the Leh highway for those coming by road. Better yet, it is 15 to 20 minutes away from the Kushok Bakula Rimpochee Airport!
How Far Is goSTOPS Leh From Sites & Attractions
goSTOPS Leh ticks all your wants and needs. After all, fairy lights, foosball, and comfy aesthetics are just three of the fantastic things we’ve got in store. But the perfect accommodation isn’t all you need to make your Leh trip memorable. Thankfully, we’ve covered it all – goSTOPS Leh is conveniently located, so you can go around sightseeing to your heart’s content.
Leh Palace – This centuries-old wonder is a must-see sight in Leh, and is actually a stone’s throw away! In fact, goSTOPS Leh is located on the base of the Namgyal hill, the same one on which the mighty Leh Palace stands. You can reach the base of the palace with a 15-minute walk, or a simple one-minute drive.
Namgyal Tsemo – The Namgyal Tsemo Gompa was founded all the way back in 1430, and along with the hill and the palace has stood the test of time. It rests proudly atop the Namgyal hill, boasting a commanding view of the land. Head up there on the Namgyal Tsemo trail that starts from the Palace, from where you’ll even be able to see the ridge of the Stok mountain.
Shanti Stupa – The Shanti Stupa is one of those unmissable Insta-worthy places in Leh that will take your breath away. Well, literally as well as figuratively since there’s a pretty winding climb to reach the Stupa. Lucky for you, the Stupa is 7 minutes away by road.
Pangong Lake – This famous tourist attraction is on many people’s bucket lists, and understandably so. A 6-hour drive from goSTOPS Leh will get you to the lake.
Alchi Monastery – Leh is filled with gorgeous monasteries, but in our opinion, the offbeat Alchi is one of the things you can’t miss when in Leh. It lies 1.5 hours away from goSTOPS Leh.
