We had hired another driver by the same name Rigzin (nick name Stakna) in 2014 and had a wonderful time. Its a common name there. He was extremely cool, jovial, honest and patient. His driving was great as well. He had a pretty good Innova in top condition. His numbers are 09622951113 & 09419349082.

"I visited Ladakh in this September end. Our driver Ali Akbar (Contact no. 9419313176) is a very efficient driver, knows all the routes well. Moreover he acts as a tourist guide too while driving. He is jovial and has a very behaviour. He never complained whenever we stopped the car for photos (which was pretty frequent in a place like Ladakh). He even arranged accommodation along with food at reasonable rates in places where we didn't book like Pangong, Tsomoriri, Hanle. He currently drives an Innova, but he has earlier experience of driving a Scorpio. You can remain relaxed if you book him.

Hello

We just completed our Ladakh trip in June 2018. I would love to share my experience with a Taxi Driver ( Rigzen Namgyal – 096222950842, 09419844285 ), from Leh. He have a 2016 model, well maintained White Innova – JK10A5562. I was looking for a driver who would pick me up from Manali and drop me off at Leh airport after the whole tour and also someone from Leh. I tried various people from the list of drivers here and finally got settled with Rigzen Namgyal. He is a very cool headed, matured and friendly person. We communicated with him over Phone and Whatsapp and he came down to Manali from Leh (Nearly 480 KM) to pick-up us, without asking for any money. We travelled with him for next 10 days and he never asked for any money. Whenever we asked him about the payment, he just replied “You can make payment at last or you can pay it once you reach to your home safely”. This kind of trustiness or behavior, I never found from any of the Taxi Driver in plain land. Due to multiple high passes, he carried Oximeter and Oxygen Cylinder in his vehicle and he never charged a single amount for that. As we 4 friends were interested with Photography, so we numerous times asked Rigzen to stop the car and we spent at least 30 minutes for each stop – but we never found any changes in his behavior. He even helped us to get good and cheap accommodations in Jispa, Hunder, Pangong and Tsomorori. Also once we reached Leh, he provided me a Local BSNL Sim – for my mobile connectivity. All kind of these facilities are provided by him without any extra charge.

Due to his co-operation, punctuality, good behavior and well maintained car– we completed our trip without any issue. The most important part of him, is his behavior and faith. As per me, if you want a good car with a good driver and with a discounted rate, then you can reach to Rigzen.

Thanks
Hrishikesh.

Glad to read that you had a pleasant experience.

Thank you for sharing this info.

Btw it is a standard practice of Ladakhi drivers to not charge anything till the end of the trip and many have started carrying SIM they give to travelers for the duration of their visit.

Taxi union rate in Leh is fixed and can be found here, Ladakh Taxi Union. You can generally get a discount of 10-15% by negotiating with the driver. You can also find seats in shared taxis or find others to travel with, if you do not wish to hire a taxi for yourself.
