Except for the enthusiasts of the ‘Chadar Trek’, which is conducted only during January-February, Leh Ladakh tourism takes a halt during the winters due to heavy snowfall.

Summer (April to June):

As Leh welcomes the summers, temperature starts rising and the valley starts regaining its charm and appeal. With the sun shining bright, the atmosphere becomes much clear. Snow starts melting by early April, and the vicinity comes alive once again with all its glories. However, visitors must carry as well as wear enough of warm clothes to maintain their body temperature and also to get acclimatised with the climate.

Even the monsoon is not at all recommended to indulge in Leh Ladakh tourism. With the advent of the rain, chances of landslides reach the peak in Leh. For those, who are planning to book Leh Ladakh tour packages during July to August, they must rethink on their choices.
