Planning a Trip
Alchi is 4 km off the main road. The bus from Leh to Kargil stops on the main road near the bridge where the Alchi road turns off (near saspol village), there is a 4 km walk from the bridge to Alchi on a dusty road. Sometimes you can hitch a ride with locals but most of the private tour vehicles will not stop. When leaving, the bus to Kargil stops at 07:00 at the bridge. It takes approximately 1h 20min to walk to the bridge from Alchi.
