Ladakh as we all are aware of is a distant place and quite secluded too. There are many geographical challenges too in this place. Alchi is considered to be a very small village, located in the Ladakh region and the closest town to Alchi is Leh, which is located at a distance of 70 kilometers. The basic amenities like phone and electricity are unavailable and even your cell phone may not catch the signal there. So once you reach Ladakh you can actually get cut off from the rest of the world.
If you really want to get away from the entire hustle bustle and simply relax and not think about anyone then Alchi is the place to be in. Alchi is a wonderful choice for mentally and physically unwinding yourself. It is good to stay away from everything but you need to be prepared for the worst. There a few numbers that you must always keep handy while visiting Alchi. But it’s always a good thing to be prepared for the worst. The following emergency contacts belong to the Leh region.
Police: 100/ +91-1982-252018/ 252283/ 254881
Hospital: +91-1982-253626/ 252014/ 252360 (Sonam Norbu Memorial Hospital or SNM Hospital)
24-hour Pharmacy: +91-1982-252160
You must keep these numbers handy and keep your fingers crossed that you should not ever require these.! And always remember to carry a First-aid box while you’re travelling.
