  • It’s always wise to arrive as early in the morning as possible to avoid rush especially in peak season
  • It is always wise to download this inner line permit form and fill it in advance and carry self attested photocopies of nationality proof and Photo-IDs (license, voter ID, passport etc.)
  • Inner line permits are valid for 3 weeks if you are an Indian and 1 week if you belong to foreigner country
  • Carrying self attested photocopies of nationality proof and Photo are a must to obtain inner line also called protected area permits
  • Besides permit application form, you need to write a request application letter addressing DC of Leh – Ladakh district for the approval of your permits
  • Permit fee include 3 components which are Rs. 200 per person as environment tax (one time) + Rs. 20 per person per day as wild life protection fee and Rs. 10 Red Cross Donation
