  1. Hi,
    Thank you for the information. Please can you tell me the one-way fare from Delhi to Leh? Where in New Delhi the bus starts from? Is it a Volvo / Luxary or a road ways transport bus?

  2. Dear Sir/Madam

    I am not certain about one way fare from Delhi to Leh but it would not more than Rs 1500 as HRTC charge Rs 1.11 per kilometer. It depart from ISBT Kashmirigate in Delhi it is road way transport bus took almost three days in the way. It is comfortable from Delhi to Manali but from Manali to Leh it is unbelievable hard journey due to roughed and spiral road, shaky, troublesome and adventurous journey. it it break done in the way it is hell tiring. It you are not healthy and young it is more mountainous task.
    If one can pay he should prefer light vehilce like Belro, Tatasumo etc. Bus staff are well behaved and cooperating.

  3. HRTC is in shamble frequent break down on of buses is common. Short of spare parts, HRTC local Shimla-Bashog bus break down at Bioleaguanj for half an-hour created blockade in the town, If you see the health of this vehilce deployed on the road on Jun 5 you could not imagine it could roll down.
    Rohru Depot bus break done at Dawanti near airport on June 5. Staff complaints that there are starved of logistic support as Management and government is not benevolent.

  4. hi,

  5. Hi,

    I would like to know if there are buses available from Manali to Leh by the end of September, and in case there are, which companies run these services. I understand HRTC ends its services by the middle of September.

    Thank you very much in advance,
