You can come to Leh by your own personal vehicle or use commercial vehicles from Srinagar or Manali to reach Leh, however you can't use commercial vehicles to go for local sightseeing or visit to nearby tourist spots at Leh. You are forced to use local taxies registered with Leh Taxi union to visit tourist places. If you have hired a cab from Manali or Srinagar then you have to leave your vehicle at designated parking areas at Leh and use the service of Leh Taxi union.

To impose such restrictions Leh Taxi Union has check posts on every entry points and they ask for permit slips issued by Taxi Union. Our driver who is a member of the Taxi union was collecting such permit slips ( called Chalans ) every day from the Taxi Union office based on the tour plan.

Personal vehicles are exempted from such restrictions.
