Leh-Ladakh is a seasonal place, a place which invites one and all. Whether you are in love with the warmth of summer and prefer camping under open sky or you want to be mesmerized by the beauty of snow clad mountain in the chill of winter and enjoy winter sports, it has everything to offer you. 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 May. 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 with SPF 50+. The best time for trekking is with the advent of September. The temperature starts to dip down but the sun keeps kissing you.
