Ladakh Road Map – DETAILED Road Maps of Leh Ladakh for Tourists

The most common thing people ask me on this blog is, “Do you have any Maps of Leh Ladakh or any Ladakh Road Map?“. And for the first few years, I used to wonder, how do I create one. However, I always knew the fact that once I create these route maps for Leh Ladakh trips, it will immensely be useful to all the travelers planning their trips to the heavenly Ladakh region.

Well, there are Google maps, but they were not so comprehensive enough in the past. So, I had hand-scribbled this Leh Ladakh offline map for all the readers of Discover with Dheeraj blog.

Leh Ladakh Map from Delhi

Guys, I know I missed on my weekly blog article on Tuesday, but I am sure that you are going to forgive me as in this little delayed weekly article, it is an immense pleasure to roll out the first-ever maps of Leh Ladakh by DoW.

I know this has taken a long time to come, almost 3 years, but better late than never and now we have one more accolade to compliment the 400+ articles on traveling to the Himalayas on Discover with Dheeraj blog.

Do I need any Leh Local Sightseeing Map?

I am sure maps of Ladakh was one shortcoming I had in the Ladakh Travel knowledge base on Discover with Dheeraj blog. The Ladakh road map presented in the article below would help a lot in bridging that gap on understanding the places & routes in entire Leh – Ladakh.

Before I dig into the details, I would like to thank Aashish, the Chief Travel Mentor in our DoW – Himalayan Travel Community who pushed me hard enough and brought this idea to come alive of having DoW’s maps of Leh Ladakh.

What all places these maps of Ladakh covers?

In this Leh Ladakh map, I have tried to put details including places, distances, important monasteries, mountain passes, lakes, etc. in entire Ladakh covering Nubra Valley, Sham Valley, Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri, Hanle and other parts of Changthang Valley.

This Leh Ladakh tourist map also has a couple of legends that explain the fuel availability in the entire Ladakh region & road difficulty level along with which type of car you might need to cover a particular stretch, list of ATMs in Ladakh. Though Black Diesel/Petrol is available at certain places, please note that the quality of such fuel is compromised and you shall only consider it in worst-case scenarios.

However, these are just my recommendations and should not be taken granted that even for a novice you can take a hatchback or sedan at the routes mentioning “All Cars” … The man behind the wheel must have some skills and experience with driving in the hills.

Similarly, for taking up difficult roads, the person must have good experience in traveling or driving/riding to this high altitude terrain of Ladakh & Manali – Leh Highway especially.

Does this Ladakh route map tell me about road conditions in Ladakh?

Though I am sure that the below maps of Leh Ladakh will help you immensely in understanding the places, moving between them & distances between them. However, for understanding the route conditions in more details I will strongly suggest that you read about Routes and Road Conditions In Leh – Ladakh.

For quick access & importance, quoting from this article that “for every route sections elaborated below, I will try to suggest car types with difficulty level as Easy, Manageable, Tough, Very Tough, Car Killer. Driving comfort is also taken into account while suggesting, so it is not just the driving. But, PLEASE DO NOT take it literally, especially in the cases of Sedans and Hatchbacks. Even, if I mentioned that route is manageable for Sedans and Hatchbacks, you still have to drive with extreme caution and care”.

The roughest patch of Srinagar to Leh Highway is a few km on either side of Zoji La Pass, especially from Baltal to the Zoji La Pass.
