How to reach:

Thiksey lies 18-km south of Leh, the headquarters of Ladakh which can be travelled by bus or taxi. Leh can be reached from Delhi or nearby north Indian airports as Leh is the highest airport in the country, but with less number of flights.

Air : The nearest airport is at Leh

Road: By car, Thiksey is an easy day trip from Leh. By bus, services are only frequent during the festival; at other times a single daily service leaves at 9.00 am and returns at 12.30 pm, leaving no time to have a good look round.
