Arrive at Leh airport by morning flight from Delhi. This flight is one of the most sensational flights in the world.

Upon arrival you will be transferred to your hotel. You would take a little time to settle in and acclimatize since you have gone from a relatively low elevation in New Delhi to over 11,000 feet!
