- Absolutely 100% required ,when we go to any easy or moderate level treks, most of people just pack their bags n kick off to the treks for fun.
I say trek is not only for fun, it's an adventure journey which require mental fitness, focus and physically strong.
This trek is completely different from rest, because temperature here drops to - 25 to - 35 degrees and one have to walk on this daily approximately 65km in span of 5 days.
So fitness physically and mentally to face challenging situations is must.
How to Travel :
1. By air get down to Delhi, prefer arrival at night. Take halt for some hours, rest and get charged for next flight to Leh early morning. Always book a flight having a halt of atleast more than 5hrs between 2 flights. Get F side seat from Delhi to Leh flight to have a view of complete Himalayas clearly. That's the main part of the flight. You enjoy your journey to max.
By road :There is no connectivity by road to Leh in winters. So this option is not valid and more important, trek company ask for Delhi to Leh boarding pass as mandatory document to submit.
