There are daily buses from Delhi to Leh via Manali operated by the Himachal Road Transport Corporation. It takes two days and a night to reach Leh from Delhi. There are also private taxis in operation from Manali, Keylong, Jammu and Srinagar.

The bus journey between Leh and Manali takes about 20 hours or two days with an overnight halt at Keylong or Pang. Private shared taxis and mini vans, tempo traveller and maxi cabs are available at Manali at reasonable rates.
