Leh-Ladakh is a seasonal place, a place which invites one and all.

However, depending upon the inflow of
tourists we can differentiate the peak and off peak seasons. PEAK SEASON May to September: With the advent of spring, the sun kisses the land of mountains. The snow laden mountains, the frozen lakes and the white carpet welcomes you in the month of end of May or Mid June. The sun begins to shine bright and normally the temperature
starts to rise during day. The sky is as blue as sapphire but the intensity of the sun rays does carve out the skin so keep yourself layered with Sunscreen. The temperature starts to dip down but the sun keeps kissing you.
It is a perfect blend of a temperature ideal for trekking. OFF SEASON Octuber to February. If you have a bone for the chill then only think about the travel to this part of the world in winter. The temperature can dip down to -20 degree Celsius and climate becomes unbearable. People don’t prefer to travel during the chilling months of Octuber to February.
