What are the guidelines related to corona lockdown in Leh?
Hi, I returned from Leh on the 5th if July after staying for 8 days. Leh is open for tourists since 8th June but very few hotels and guest houses are accepting bookings. Guidelines say all visitors must undergo mandatory 7 day quarantine in guest houses or hotels. You have to provide the details of ur guesthouse on arrival at the airport. But you can go around after 2-3 days. But places like Pangong , Nubra cannot be visited and one can visit places around Leh
