How to reach Leh Ladakh from Kolkata, West Bengal
It is more difficult to reach Ladakh from West Bengal than it is to go to Delhi or Mumbai. Sadly, there is no direct rail service or air service between Kolkata and Leh (Ladakh). We will inform you of all your alternatives for getting to Ladakh from Kolkata.
No matter where in West Bengal you are travelling from—Kolkata, Howrah, Durgapur, Asansol, Bardhaman, Darjeeling, Haldia, Barrackpore, Kharagpur, Midnapore, Berhampore, Cooch Behar—you will need to book a connecting flight to Leh Airport or a train to Delhi, Chandigarh, or Jammu, where you can take a taxi.
It is extremely simple to plan a Ladakh tour from Kolkata. Many visitors from Kolkata (or other West Bengal cities) enjoy the exhilarating jeep safari/road trip from Manali to Leh Ladakh or from Srinagar to Leh Ladakh. Some travellers even do a round trip from Manali to Srinagar after visiting Ladakh. This journey is also feasible going the other way around, from Srinagar to Ladakh to Manali. But take note that the road from Manali to Leh is only open from June to mid-October, whereas the road from Srinagar to Leh is open from May to November or as determined by the weather.
Ladakh is a popular destination for tourists from Kolkata who want to experience the natural beauty, sceneries, snow-capped mountains, high altitude lakes, old monasteries, biking, jeep safari, photography, and wildlife excursions.

The train network from Himachal Pradesh to Leh (Ladakh) via Manali and the Rohtang Pass has been decided upon by the railway ministry. The project report is nearly finished, and work on installing rail track will begin shortly. Once finished, this will be one of the world’s highest rail lines with more than twenty tunnels.

Best Time to Visit Ladakh From Kolkata
Summer is the ideal time to reserve a Leh-Ladakh tour package from Kolkata. At this point, the region’s tourist attractions are all available for business due to the thawing of the snow. Due to the significant snowfall throughout the winter, the majority of tourist attractions are closed. Tourists find it challenging to leave their hotels or residences for a sightseeing excursion as a result. As a result, summer is the most popular time to travel. Additionally, this is the summer break period for schools. This makes it simpler for parents to organise family vacations.
