Ladakh is a snow-laden magic land which can be visited all round the year as Ladakh weather gives different shades for the enjoyment of travelers and tourists. But still, there are times when weather in Ladakh is more soothing and appealing.
Again, it depends on your personal choice and taste as to choose which time for traveling to Ladakh. Some of the travelers love to visit this mysterious snow desert in comfortable months of the year( May to September) when they are able to enjoy all the comforts of trip.
However, some of the adventure loving freaks prefer to explore the land of Monasteries when it becomes highly unaccessible(November to March). This period of year gives complete isolation to Ladakh from rest of the country. But, still some tourists love to test their bearing capacity and wish to challenge the challenging conditions of harsh weather.

The weather in Ladakh can be extreme. The summers are harsh with direct sunlight at such high altitudes and the winters are cold with the temperatures dropping below the freezing point. From May to September, the day temperature is a pleasant 16-25 oC and the night temperature can be around 3-10 oC. For the rest of the year, the temperatures are generally freezing.
It varies from person to person. Ideally, it takes around 1-2 days for people to get acclimatized in Ladakh. It usually takes more time for people flying into Leh since their body suddenly faces a change in altitude. On the other hand, when your taking a road trip to Ladakh, it is easier to acclimatize because you are slowly ascending towards high altitudes.
As you will be travelling to extremely high altitudes, it is recommended that you prepare yourself by doing some cardio exercises or activities for a few days prior to your trip. This will help you avoid feeling breathlessness during the trip. If possible, also practice some breathing exercises to increase your lung capacity.
