    Hello Vargis

    I´m Antonio from Spain, I will go to Delhi on August 24th and then I´ll take a bus to Chandigargh.
    The trip plan that I have in mind is travel by bicycle the following route:

    Chandigargh - Shimla - Kinnaur Valley - Spiti Valley (without going through Manali) - Leh - Kargil - Srinagar

    And finally by bus to Amritsar and come back to Delhi, where I´ll take the plane to Spain on September 24th.

    The question is do I need some inner line permits although on a bicycle and which?

    Hi Antonio, Yes you will need the permit from Shimla or Reckongn Peo to enter Kaza (Spiti valley) and then again at Leh to enter the other areas of Ladakh if you wish to. I have explained both these permits at the links below.

    Thanks Vargis

    I understand that the Rohtang Pass is only if you go from Manali to Leh, if I go from Spity Valley to Leh it´s no neccesary.
    In Leh I´ll obtain the PAP for Khardung La.
    Do I need another PAP for Kargil in the route to Srinagar?

    Hi Antonio,

    1. Rohtang permit is not needed if you are going from Spiti to Leh. You only need it while coming from Manali side.
    2. You do not need PAP for just Khardung La. You only need it if you plan to cross it over and enter Nubra Valley.
    3. No permit is needed for traveling from Srinagar to Leh via Kargil.
