Best Time To Visit Ladakh

Plan your trip during best season to experience the best of this stunning destination

Best time to visit Ladakh by bike or cab is during the month of June. The months from mid-September to mid-October are considered to be the best season to enjoy the stunning beauty of the landscape of Ladakh and Leh. The month of March is considered to be the best time to visit Ladakh for adventure trip. While the months from April to mid-May remain the peak season for Ladakh tourism. During the months from August to December, it gets quite risky and dangerous to visit Ladakh as monsoon and winter take a toll on Ladakh during these months. Hotel, flights and food may get expensive during the peak season in Ladakh. If you are planning to visit here during these months, book your tickets in advance. 

Bike Trip to Ladakh:

Best time to visit Ladakh on bike is during summer season. Summers in Ladakh are characterized by comfortable, and cozy weather with sun shining over the snow clad mountain peaks. The plain sailing roads without any blockage by landslides or snowfall, also make it the best time to visit Ladakh on bike. During winters and monsoons, it becomes quite difficult to travel by road. Warmer weather in summer months (May through early October) makes sightseeing in Ladakh quite enjoyable, and one can cover almost all major Ladakh places such as Pangong Lake and Nubra Valley that are open for tourists.

The best time to visit Ladakh by road is from mid-May to September as the Leh Manali Highway opens up via Rohtang Pass. Mid-September to mid-October is an amazing time to visit Leh and Ladakh as the place is permeated in flamboyance through the Srinagar-Leh as well as Manali-Leh roads. Road conditions are better during this time. For enthusiastic bikers, the best time to visit Ladakh on bike is during the months of July and August as all passes and streets to the land are opened and the land turns exceptionally welcoming. Let’s have a look at the segregation to decide on which is the best month to visit Ladakh.

April - June ( 2°C to 19°C ) :

With the month of April, travel passes for tourists are open. Hence, summer season is the best time to visit Ladakh. The weather during this time is crisp and the skies are clear, offering splendid views that can be enjoyed through a ride on bike or jeep.

During the late April, the region sees the melting of the lakes, and one can witness a spread of brilliant colours everywhere. And, with the beginning of the month of June, one can hop on an excursion to Rohtang Pass as well.

July - September ( 3°C to 17°C ):

Experiencing irregular heavy rainfall during the monsoon season starting from the month of July, it is advised not to get on an excursion to Ladakh this time. With frequent landslides, roadblocks, and snow slides, it becomes quite difficult to walk or drive here.

Though, the month of September can be considered as a good time to visit Ladakh. For, the precipitation stops and there is hardly any humidity.

October - March (-9°C to 2°C) :

With temperature dropping to minus degrees, it is not recommended to visit Ladakh during the winter season. Covered with snow, driving through roads can be quite dangerous.

However, adventure lovers can choose to hop on Chadar Trek during the months of January to March.

Festivals in Ladakh

Festivals enhance the beauty of any destination, and that is true for Ladakh as well. The deserted land of Ladakh comes to life during these festivities wherein the natives gather around to become a part of the celebrations. Monasteries of Ladakh become venues of celebration where the locals perform famous folk dances, songs, and dramas of the region. Some of the popular festivals in Ladakh are -

Hemis Festival: Hemis festival is an important festival of Ladakh organised in June to celebrate the birthday of Guru Padmasambhava, who founded Tantric Buddhism in Tibet. Monks can be seen wearing sparkling brocade robes and colourful face masks. They perform a dance-drama displaying the life, principles, and mission of the Guru.

Thiksey, Karsha and Spituk Gustor: This two-day festival is celebrated in different months every year in Thiksey, Karsha, and Spituk. These Gustors signify the victory of good over evil. The performers wear variety of masks while they perform, and these masks symbolise gods, goddesses, guardians, and protectors. As the festival comes to an end, the evils are figuratively killed, and their images are burned.

Dosmoche Festival: Celebrated in May in the regions of Liker, Deskit monastery, and Leh, this is one of the most renowned festivals of Ladakh. The courtyard of the Leh Palace is the venue to enjoy this two-day festival in Leh. It is celebrated in the beginning as well as at the end of the Tibetian Year. Monks make their offerings using crosses made of threads to turn evil and ghosts into protectors and guardians of people against natural calamities that might occur in the following year.

Ladakh Harvest Festival: The Ladakh Harvest Festival commences from 1st September and lasts for 15 days thereafter. The natives celebrate their rich diversity with enthusiasm and vigor. Locals take part in dance performances, wedding ceremonies, drama, music, and many other forms of art.

Climate in Ladakh

Summer Season in Ladakh

Summer (April-June): With the mountains warming up and the land blooming, it is a tourist season in this region. The landscape is quite barren framed by the snow-capped mountains giving it a beauty that is like no other, making it best season to visit Leh. The lakes begin to melt (Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri) painting the landscape with beautiful colors. Travelling by road is a popular way to see this region. The Passes Khardung La and Chang La are popular routes to take granting breathtaking vistas to be captured by the cameras. The Rohtang and Baralacha Pass are an ideal way to complete the circuit. This is a trip of a lifetime and the best time to visit Leh by road, many traversing it on a motorbike consider it a rite of passage.

Monsoon Season in Ladakh

Monsoon (July-August): With the heavy rains and with all hilly terrains, this region too gets blocked. Tourism shuts down due to the landslides and the ‘moving’ earth. Even though there is a different sort of beauty granted to the region during this season, only tourists in four wheel vehicles brave this region.

Winter Season in Ladakh

Early Winter (September-October): This is the time for trekking and exploring the region on foot making it the best time to visit Leh Ladakh. The cool mountain breeze begins to set into the region. Occasional snowfall lends the region a dreamy glow. This along with the water bodies turning the most alluring shades of blue, the region seems to transform into a dream land turning this time best season to visit Leh Ladakh.

    Shaiwalagarwal's 5 days trip to Ladakh

    It was a very well organised trip and great experience to this heavenly place. Sightseeing is well planned and everything is covered. Driver was very polite and very helpful in nature. Hotels were good but they could be even more better. Accomodation and hospitality on pangong lake i.e. on himalaya
    n cottage are really handled very well. Yugal Ji as a tour operator has done a great job. He made our bookings on time and provided all the necessary and small details reagrding the trip on time. All things are well organised.

    Ankita Sharma

    Gurdaspur

    Ankita's 5 days trip to Ladakh

    Overall it was an amazing trip.Travel Partners have done a great job in arranging everything from cab service to the accomodation arrangements. But the hotel provided at Leh was pathetic. "The LEH",it had alot of issues.Its food quality was not good because of which we even had stomach upset.There r
    oom heaters were not working,they had issues with wify connectivity also. But if I talk about the rest of the places such as Nubra valley or Pangong Lake,even though these places were in remote areas and it was quite difficult to gather supplies,still the hotel staff was very hospitable at both the places and they tried there best to provide us the comforts and facilities as they can. We stayedin The Wooden Nest at NUbhra Valley and Pongong tso cottages in Pnagong Lake,both were amazing. Special mention of the driver that we got in our journey,he was very friendly and quite an experienced driver. So,overall the experience was great.Just had a few hick ups with the hotel ate Leh,apart from that everything ws quite smooth.

    Prathyusha Lella

    Hyderabad

    Prathyusha's 6 days trip to Ladakh

    Hotels: 1. Singge Palace hotel was the best in terms of hospitality, food, rooms, location and everything else. 2. Lakrook hotel hospitality is not so great. Rooms are small, but very chilly. Food was also Ok. 3. Pangong residency was good. Very hospitable ppl. They tried to help us with all our
    requests. Food was ok. 4. Yarab Tso hotel is fine. Very limited options in food, but it was good. Sight seeing: Driver was ok. Professional but lack of complete communication led us to miss a few places. But he was courteous. Vehicle is also fine. Yugal has been constantly in touch with us through out the trip. He was quick to change our itinerary when we had to change it due to bad weather. Pleasure to have interacted with him. He was genuinely concerned about us when we were taking the trip via Khardungla which opened after 2 1/2 days (because of heavy snow) and we were the first tourists to pass through, that day. 5hank you Yugal for helping us make a beautiful memory. We know Lazyatra through Yugal only and have decided to take their services for our next trip.
