Hello KV Shah. Yes, you could take your kid. It shouldn't be a problem. Kids acclimatise faster than adults do :) Just be careful with the little ones clothing. And rest in Leh for 2 days (so that everyone is acclimatised), before heading to higher altitudes like Khardungla or Pangong.

I had an amazing time in Ladakh and would recommend everyone to visit Ladakh once in a lifetime. But, it's quiet unsafe to travel high altitude regions with your children. You can straightaway go by the flights but stay in Leh city for atleast 2 days so that your body can acclimatize according to the environment.

Please be careful while taking young child to high altitudes. Leh is 3500 metres above sea level, and lot of places are even higher than this. checkout below link : http://www.traveldoctor.co.uk/altitude.htm

Yes.... but u wont be able to trekking... and take one day rest in hotel before going for sight seeing. Make him/her or rather all of you should drink plenty of water.

Yes u can.. but it will be better if u avoid directly flying to leh.. u can take the leh manali highway or leh srinagar highway.. it will help in acclimatization...

Yes but have to take a medical checkup of the child first and have to take an oxygen cylinder with you.

I would say no! Wait another year until your kid turns 5!
