Great list Rajiv, I have moved this to a dedicated thread, so that it will help all those planning to head to Ladakh in car.

@RKB:
Which brand/model of Hydraulic Jack/Lift you're using for SX4? Is it rated for 2T capacity or more?
I need to buy one for about 4T capacity. Any idea, how the electric ones perform in regular city usage? :confused:

Leh'd and how!
Just to add to the list, a few things we found handy during our trip:

1. A black cloth to cover the dash board to avoid reflections on the windshield while clicking pictures.
2. A big poly bag to be used as a dust bin to store wrappers and other waste.
3. Wet wipe tissues. Very handy if you plan to skip showers in Ladakh :p
4. Toffees/ Chocolates/ Biscuits for local children. And do keep them handy. More often than not we stepped out and didn't carry it along. Ended up meeting kids in villages but didn't have any goodies for them :(
5. Liquid hand sanitizer. You sure are going to get your hands dirty. Instant sanitizers are very convenient.
6. Thermos. Although you would get hot water almost everywhere, but if you need that hot tea frequently, carry a thermos.
7. A multi-pin plug point. Often in the car, everybody would want to charge their phones/ cameras at the same time. An extension board can help.
8. Zip lock water-proof bags. You get them cheap at those grocery stores. Very handy to store cameras/ phones/ other electronic stuff and keep them dust and water proof!
