To help you experience the best time in Ladakh, here is a complete guide about the best time to visit Leh Ladakh including the weather and climate conditions of Ladakh all around the year!
1. April to Mid-May
April is one of the best time to visit Leh Ladakh when most of the tourists start coming to Ladakh and the whole region lights up with a vibrant aura. The restaurants and hotels are opened and camping sites are also set up near famous lakes. Moreover, by the late April, the popular lakes of Ladakh start thawing which makes them just perfect to plan a picnic to and spend a whole day and night gazing over the stunning landscape of this state! The Srinagar-Leh Highway is also opened along with the Khardung La and Chang La Passes in their complete snowy beauty are availed for travelers to explore!
2. Mid May to July
May is a good time to discover Ladakh because of the pleasant weather of the region but the landslides and blockages on the roads can be an issue in your traveling. So, you can fly to Leh and then head to explore the place which will be a better option rather than getting stuck amidst the landslide. Further by the end of May and the coming June and July, the roads get clearer and the weather is lovely to take a trip all around Ladakh.
3. August to Mid-September
Monsoon season enters Leh Ladakh from August and the roads get trickier for traveling. There are areas like Zojila Pass and Baralacha Pass which receive less rainfall but the other areas for entering Ladakh are prone to heavy rainfall which can pose hassles to your trip. So, this phase is apparently not recommended for traveling but if you love monsoons and you are lucky enough to get a flight, you can still enjoy the amazing rainfalls of Ladakh and soak in the cool vibes!
4. Mid-September to Mid October
This is the actually the best time to visit Leh Ladakh other than April. After the monsoon seasons, the landscape shines in a bright light with the sapphire-colored lakes and clear skies. These months are the ideal ones if you want to see Ladakh in its best hues and the roads are in good conditions to assist you in traveling safely.
5. Mid October to March
By the end of October, the temperatures fall down drastically which results in freezing weather in the state. The restaurants, guest houses, and hotels are closed and locals migrate to warmer areas leaving Leh almost in a deserted area. So, it is not advised to explore Leh Ladakh during the winter time. Moving further to Mid-November, the weather still remains cold and chilly but the frozen lakes and colorful hues of Pangong Tso Lake and Tso Moriri attract many tourists to Ladakh. You can take a flight to Leh during this time if you want to amaze yourself with the astonishing snow-white heaven that Ladakh transforms into!
Hence, the above mentioned is the weather of Ladakh all around the year and how you can make the best of your time here during these months. Make sure to keep all the travel essentials and warm clothes along with important photo ids and identity proofs for a safe and lovely journey in the striking vistas of Ladakh!
