Is Srinagar Leh Highway Safe for Tourists ?

by Vargis.Khan

Is Srinagar Leh highway safe? This is usually the first question that gets asked when someone plans their road trip to Ladakh; and keep the road from Srinagar to Leh as part of their itinerary. Considering all the fuss that you hear about Kashmir everyday and all the violence; this question is definitely justified. After all, no one wants to be at a wrong place at a wrong time. Adventure and exploring new areas is fine but not really worth it if it poses a serious and unnecessary risk, isn’t it? So how safe is Srinagar Leh highway? Can you travel on it without fearing for your own safety and that of your loved ones? If you too were wondering the same, then below is some information on the topic; and a few safety tips that I am sure can be of help.

is srinagar leh highway safe

I remember the first time I was in Srinagar city about a decade ago. I was returning from Ladakh and got lost in Srinagar while looking for Dal Lake since we wanted to stay in a houseboat there. We started asking the locals for directions and all of them were quite humble and very helpful. They pointed us in the right direction but there was this one sentence that I cannot forget from that day.

“Aaiye Chaai Pijiye (May I offer you some tea?)”

Every single person that I asked for directions that day offered me a cup of tea. Some even invited me and my friend in to their homes for tea. I was so touched by the hospitality of those people that now with so many years gone, I still cannot forget this line.




I have been to Srinagar a few times after that but that my first impression of Kashmir and it still remain to be my only one. Whenever I was in Srinagar or anywhere else in Kashmir, I found it so hard to believe that it is the same place that we hear so much about in the news.

The first thing to know is that tourism is a big part of Kashmir’s economy; probably the biggest. A common man here depends a lot on tourism and will do their best to not disrupt a steady source of income. In a trouble stricken state where there are not many job opportunities; people wait for the tourist season to begin and suffer heavily if there is a decline in the annual footfall. Whatever it is they are angry about, a local Kashmiri will always ensure to not let a tourist get hurt because of it. Places that are popular as tourist destinations like Gulmarg, Sonamarg, Pahalgam, Yusmarg never really get affected by any violence.

Most of the protests and agitations most of the times are usually centered around Srinagar city. Even in Srinagary, you never will hear about any stone pelting incidents near tourists spots like the gardens or the lakes. Thousands of people including both Indians and foreign nationals arrive at Kashmir each year. Some visit just the Kashmir valley while others travel towards Kargil and then Leh. People even rent motorcycle and taxis from Srinagar for their trip so no, you will not be the only tourist in the city; and not the only person stuck if something goes wrong.

How safe is Srinagar Leh Highway

To answer this question, you will have to consider two sides of it. First one is that you just arrive in Srinagar City, stay for the night and be on your way to Ladakh the very next day. The second is that you want to go to Leh but first want to visit a few places in Kashmir valley as well.

If yours is the first case and that you have no intention of staying in Kashmir, then I will say that Srinagar Leh highway is quite safe. All that you need to do is to keep a check on the news. If there are news all over of ongoing protests, curfews, shootings etc then do not head towards Srinagar. I am not talking about the usual and regular protests that happen here on almost daily basis. I am referring to situations when it all sometimes gets way out of hand and a curfew is imposed. In case you are hearing any such thing in the news, then best to avoid Kashmir valley altogether.

If there is no such major incident in the news then it is quite safe to plan a journey on Srinagar Leh highway. If staying at Srinagar makes you nervous then you can head straight towards Sonamarg and stay there for the night. It is merely 2-3 hours of journey at most.

Safety of Srinagar to Leh route and Kashmir Valley

Now let us talk about when you want to do some sightseeing in Kashmir as well; either before heading towards Ladakh or while on your way back from there. What you must know is that things can change in Kashmir overnight and there is really no one who can tell you with guarantee that nothing will ever go wrong. There have been a few incidents in the past when a few tourists got caught in between and were hurt during stone pelting. To ensure this does not happen to you, I would recommend that you follow the below mentioned tips.

Stick to Major Tourist Destinations

Everyone loves to visit offbeat destinations, places that are not crowded and less visited. When it comes to Kashmir however, it is a really bad idea. Stick to main tourist places like Gulmarg, Sonamarg, Pahalgam, Aru Valley and Yusmarg etc. It is best to not plan a trip towards offbeat destinations like Doodhpathri or Bangus Valley. You actually need a permit for these two places and it is quite difficult to obtain one. Anantnag and Shopian are two more places where you often hear of violence erupting so it is best to avoid these as well.

Do not Wander

Even during your stay in Srinagar, do not wander towards areas like Lal Chowk or Old Srinagar city; areas where you have no business to be. Curfews and stone pelting incidents happen majorly towards this side of Srinagar and there is really nothing for you to do here. You will really not find any agitators, protestors near tourists spots so restrict yourself from wandering away. Do not go exploring in the city.

Trust Your Driver and Get a Good One

This will apply if you hired a local taxi and driver in Srinagar city. There will not be any violence at tourist spots but curfew usually gets imposed all over the city. If that happens that there will be road closures and traffic delays. In this case, your driver will come to the rescue; avoiding violence struck routes and getting you to safety. As I mentioned above, Kashmiris ensure safety of tourists so your driver will then take it on him personally to get you to a safe place. Being a local, he will also be able to talk out of a situation if you got in to one.

Stay at the Hotel

If there is any curfew or problem in the city, stay inside your hotel until things calm down. As long as you are in your room, there will not be any trouble at all. No one will come breaking doors to drag you out, that never happens.

Be Prepared for No Phone and No Internet

The first that happens in the valley in times of violence is a total closure of internet services and sometimes even all telecommunication services. When you plan a visit to Srinagar, you need to be mentally prepared for this. Landline phones however remain operational so you can use those to call your family.

Also read: Srinagar to Leh Travel Time and Suggested Itinerary

Carry Some Essential Medicines

As a precautionary measure, carry some essential medicines like for cough, stomach ache, headache, cold etc. If a curfew is imposed, even medical stores will be shut down.

Keep Buffer Days in your Itinerary

This is of extreme importance. When you go to Kashmir, you must have at least 2 days as buffer in your overall plan. This is just to make sure that if you got stuck somewhere, there will really be no harm done back home because of your delay. If everything went smooth, then you may stay in the valley for 2 days by choice or just come back home.

Have a local Contact

No I do not mean that you have a friend or family member in the city. But if at all possible, go with a local travel agent or at least hire a local driver. This way, if anything goes wrong, you will not be all on your own and will have at least one local contact to help you.

Is Srinagar Leh Highway Safe

So yes, traveling on Srinagar Leh highway is completely safe as long as you stick to main tourist spots; keep yourself away from troubled areas and follow the above tips I mentioned above. With all said and done, I will also like to add that I am not a Kashmiri. I live in New Delhi and have never lived in Kashmir ever. Whatever I shared here is based only on my own travel experiences.

If you have any other tips that can be of use to fellow travelers please do comment and share. If you have any further questions; please feel free to ask in the comments section below or at our Community Forum; and I will be glad to answer.

Hi Vargis we are an Australian family of 5 living in Kolkata (for the past 5 years). We are finally looking at travelling to Leh/Ladakh in September and wanted some info re car hire. We were looking at travelling to Delhi to Jammu like your 11 day itinerary but due to the recent issues in Kashmir we’re very nervous to do so. If things do settle down can you tell me of a company that shall travel to Leh, taking in the sights along the way. I don’t want to pay “foreigner” price so just need some advice please.
Kind Regards

Hi Vargis. It was nice to read about your detailed information.
We are 5 people doing a road trip in August 2019. We will be traveling in our own car with the route Pune – Jammu – Srinagar – Leh – Turtuk – Sumur – Pangong – Hanle – Karzok – Manali – Pune. I have two questions and would be glad if you have the information –
1) I heard that Jammu – Srinagar road is closed on Sundays & Wednesdays. Are there any other closure also?
2) The Amarnath yatra is also scheduled in July & August 2019. Is there any possibility of getting stuck up due to the same?
We intend to travel from Jammu to Srinagar, stay the night in Srinagar (or at the outskirts), and immediately proceed to Kargil next day morning.
Your feedback / information / comments on this would be highly appreciated. Thank you, in advance.

Dear Mr. Vargis khan,
First of all, thank you for your valuable explanation and informative blog regarding tour to entire ladakh and at the same time wish you good luck success in every field if life.l

Your through knowledge, vast experience, relevant, appropriate and descriptive explanations and information regarding various matters of Leh such as climate of Leh-Ladakh in different seasons, language, culture, livelihood of Ladakhi people, hotel booking, car booking, AMS, Oxygen Cylinder rent etc. etc. have enchanted me greatly.

So, I can’t resist myself to say something regarding my upcoming tour from Srinagar to Leh [Travel period @ 23-05-2019 to 01-06-2019 = 10 Days & 9 Days; Family Members:- 3 / Myself, my wife and my daughter (9+ years old)]

It is pertinent to mention here that the tour plan for Leh which I’ve arranged is totally inspired by you. My tour plan is as follows:-

1. 23-05-2019 = Srinagar – Kargil = Sonamarg – Zodjila pass – Drass Village -Tiger – Tololing –

It is pertinent to mention here that I’ve got quotations regarding travel by Mahindra Scorpio MhAWK and Innova car for the same itinerary are Rs. 54,000/- and Rs. 60,000/- respectively without Inner Line Permit.
Please inform me whether the car rent which I’ve got is reasonable or not?
Also, please inform me if you have any reliable tour operator.
I’ve got ILP through online except Hanley. I’ve talked with the concerned official of the Tourist Information Centre, Leh and he assured me that permit for Hanley will be given from the District Magistrate Office.

Hence, in this regard, you are requested to follow my tour plan and if possible, you can modify this tour program for better tour program/schedule and please tell me which one is appropriate.

With thanks,
Arindam Das.

Hello Mr. Das,

Thank you so much for your kind words. I truly appreciate it and glad that the information I posted was of help.

You will have to rent two taxis for your trip. First one from Srinagar to Leh and then another one for sightseeing in Ladakh. So the amounts you mentioned above, which part of the journey are those for?

Arindam Das May 9, 2019 - 8:38 am

Dear Mr. Vargis Khan,
Thank you once again and I’m expressing my humble gratitude to you.

Yes, you are absolutely correct that I shall have to rent two taxis for my entire trip from SRINAGAR to LEH. So, I’ve contacted with the “LADAKH TAXI OPERATOR CO-OPERATIVE LTD.”of LEH. They have gave quotation Rs. 43,700/- for the entire LEH – LEH tour (@ from 24-05-2019 to 01-06-2019 = 8 nights & 9 Days). At the same time, they have told me that it will be charged double additionally if they pick-up me from Srinagar.
So, after that, I’ve asked quotations from various tour operators of Leh-Ladakh to minimize total car rent from Srinagar to Leh as a only single family of 3 members.

Once again, I would like to mention here that I’ve got quotations regarding travel by Mahindra Scorpio MhAWK and Innova car for the same itinerary are Rs. 54,000/- and Rs. 60,000/- respectively without Inner Line Permit (ILP).

Now, in respect of your query regarding the amounts mentioned above is total car rent from (SRINAGAR – LEH Tour from 23-05-2019 to 01-06-2019 (Duration: 10 Days / 9 Nights).

I’ve got quotations from the above mentioned tour operators, but, I’ve not finalized yet.

I shall take decision after getting your valuable advice. You may also inform me regarding reliable tour operators those who are well known to you.

Practically, it’s worth saying that without your detailed description and proper guidance, anybody can’t be able to get encourage to travel the entire Leh-Ladakh region with family members.

Once again, I wholeheartedly wish you good luck and success in every field of life.

With thanks,
Arindam Das.

I’m visiting India for 10 weeks later this year, from mid October through to late December. Kashmir was in my plans, but after the recent bombing issues there I changed my plans and simply left a 10-day window of opportunity open for that period – if things settle down I’ll go to Kashmir and then head across to Leh via the bus or a taxi, otherwise I’ll use the 10 days for some other part of India.

My other concern now is my nationality as an Australian. Until recently I used to laugh at anyone who suggested Australians could have issues in Muslim countries, because we don’t bother anyone. Then one psychopath changed it all in Christchurch and made life that much more difficult for Australians traveling overseas. I can’t but imagine that there are some radical elements within various Muslim communities who’d love nothing better then to bring reprisals against any Australians they can get hold of, so unfortunately that whole business has added a new element to my concerns for traveling in the vale of Kashmir. Any thoughts?

Hi Tim,

Welcome to India my friend. I am a Muslim myself and trust me when I say this, it is us Muslims who are most annoyed and frustrated by these radical elements causing hatred worldwide in the name of Islam. No one wants that. We don’t want that. We too want to live in peace and harmony as much as any other community. Now the entire world links the world Muslim to terrorism and it is a common Muslim who pays the price everywhere he goes.

With that being said, coming to your question, you got nothing to worry about really. No one is going to bother you in Kashmir. Rather, you will be treated like a king knowing that you are a tourist. Kashmiri people are very sensitive towards tourists because a major part of their livelihood depends on tourism. And believe me, you will definitely not be hated for being an Australian. For them, you will just be a foreign tourist. Majority of them won’t even remember or know actually that the guy behind Christchurch shooting was an Australian and even if they do, it wouldn’t matter.

Hi Sutapan,

1. Yes
2. Please talk to Faisal in Srinagar at 9596410670. He can give you a cost estimate and if you agree, can even arrange the tempo for you.
3. It should be OK as long as the kids have no medical ailments. I will still strongly suggest that you visit a doctor as well before the trip to consult about the kids
4. Srinagar to Leh by road will be better
5. Planning is good

Dear Vargis, will ceasefire have any impact, I mean will this make srinagar vulnerable to terror attacks. I will be travelling next month. Is it advisable to stay in srinagar only or we can freely visit sonmarg, gulmarg and other area also, given that a south indian tourist was stone pelted to death recently? Thanks

Vargis.Khan May 18, 2018 - 1:22 pm

Hi Naresh – From what I heard from the locals there, that death was a very unfortunate incident. Stone pelting was going on and the area was not safe to travel through. Tourists were advised to not go but that certain group still insisted to pass through; because half of their group had already crossed. The driver too was dumb enough to agree and the result was unfortunate. One tourist was hit on the head and succumbed to his injuries. They were not targeting that person. They just tried to squeeze their car through with both civilians and armed forces throwing stones at each other. The deceased got hit by a stone that was not intended for him.

I am not saying that Kashmir is completely safe and there is nothing to worry about. but the golden rule while you travel through Kashmir is that if there is any word of unrest, head back to your hotel and rest there until everything is clear and you will be OK. Do not wander to areas you were not supposed to, do not take chances; avoid any place where a protest is going on and you are free to go.

Things change in Srinagar by the day and hour so no one can really give a 100% guarantee. With that being said, what I can in fact tell you is that tourists are indeed traveling right now to both Kashmir and Ladakh. So unless there is a curfew in Srinagar city, it is mostly OK to traveling from Srinagar to Leh as you are just passing through.
