http://www.bcmtouring.com/forums/th...rom-outside-leh-banned-in-ladakh.58624/page-8 The 'short' of it is: With a rented bike from MANALI or DELHI you can ride into LEH but not to many of the tourist destinations around LEH (Nubra/Pangong/Tso Moriri...). You will have to rent another bike IN LEH to be able to go to those destinations. Some rental companies (Manali/Delhi) only charge you half the daily rental price for the time you hired the LEH bike. The restriction ONLY applies for 'around LEH' and not for the LEH-MANALI or SRINAGAR-LEH road and not for ZANSKAR and SPITI ! .
