Best Time To Visit
The best time to visit Ladakh is between the summer months of June to September. The days are long, the sun shines bright, and there is a very rare chance that travelers will get a spell of shower. This time of the year, travelers flock to Ladakh because of the conditions of the roads, weather, and sightseeing places are the most apt.
The lean season in Ladakh comes in two phases- April to May and October. During these months, the weather is considerably cold with a difficult in breathing a common occurrence. If travelers wish to catch snowfall, then the best time to visit Ladakh is during April when the winter months are ending and a few days of snowfall here and there is guaranteed.
Being at an altitude of 3500m above sea level in the winter months can be really harsh for survival. With multiple feet of snowfall and the temperature regularly dropping below -20 degrees between the months of November to March, the off season in Ladakh can be a big fight for survival. However, adventure enthusiasts wanting to see the snow leopard, trek on the frozen Chadar river or catch a glimpse of other snow-related activities can venture out to Ladakh for the same.
