Permit Office in Leh

Indian citizens no longer need inner line permits for most of Ladakh's tourist destinations, but if they wish to continue to the restricted zones on the Chinese border (notably Hanle and the fascinating Pangong–Chushul–Loma–Mahe road) they will need to take suitable ID to this office to get the official clearance.

Of late, many report getting this sorted with minimal fuss in around half an hour (₹380 per person) but others insist that permission is only granted to those with a convincing need and proof thereof. No permits for foreigners.
