    When driving around Leh area, it may be a good idea to carry shovel as well. I keep an emergency shovel in my car during winter times. You never know when your car may get stuck in snow. The one I have is very portable and comes apart so that it can fit in a bag pack for easy travel.

    Answered your query here 2018 Srinagar-Leh Road Status

    Taxi drivers in Ladakh normally have it. You can't drive a car at that time, since Ladakh is cut off from rest of India by road and self-drive cars aren't available.

    I will make a few American English corrections just to avoid confusion.

    Torch= Flash Light
    Self Drive= Rentals

    If people did not know these words they will interpret Torch= Mashal (something people carry in racist KKK rallies) and Self Drive as cars that drive themselves (tested all over the US and technology that is new). Flash light may sound funny to Indians because to them it only means camara flash.

    Carry torch and mustard oil vs. carry flash light and moisturizer are same things, but if you do not know the difference in English language version used, you might think differently.
