48-Hour Acclimatization Now Compulsory for all Tourists Heading to Ladakh



If you are planning to go on a trip to Ladakh, you need to know about this latest development. To avoid the tourists from getting affected by high altitude sickness, the authorities in Leh have issued a new order that states that all visitors heading to Leh must now undergo compulsory 48-hour acclimatization before continuing their journey. The tourists can then carry on with their vacation as scheduled. 

The location of Leh, which is on an elevation of around 3500 m above sea level is generally considered to be a little dangerous for the non-locals. It can even cause sickness especially in the tourists that will fly in the city through a flight. Countless tourists that reach Leh often need to be admitted in the hospital as they suffer from ‘mountain sickness’. 

There was a meeting organized by the Chairman cum Chief Executive Councilor of Ladakh Autonomous Hill Development Council (LAHDC), Tashi Gyalson. This was attended by stakeholders and the various officers of the travel industry. Different issues that affect the tourism sector in the city of Leh were discussed during this meet. The authorities attending the meeting also discussed the need for improving health facilities that could help in dealing with medical emergencies among tourists, specifically in places at higher altitudes in Ladakh. 

The officials also informed the stakeholders about taking compliance with different SOPs. These shall be crafted by the District Administration for managing the travelers in Leh especially during the peak season and monitor the visitor’s medical conditions sternly. 

The CEC also asked the concerned authorities to start ‘joint awareness camps’ and ‘IEC campaigns’ in order to spread awareness among the residents that are engaged in the travel sector. 

This positive step taken for the welfare of the tourists will definitely help those visiting Ladakh.
