Planning a trip to Leh Ladakh? Here are a few essential things you must know before visiting Ladakh
Known as the land of high passes, Ladakh will impress you with its captivating landscapes and outstanding experiences. Ladakh is one Indian destination that every travel junkie and biker has on their bucket list. And if you are one of them, here is a list of tips one must know before visiting Ladakh.
1. High altitude sickness
It is advisable to consult a medical doctor before booking your trip to Ladakh. Due to it being located at high altitude, the air in Ladakh has less oxygen as compared to low altitude areas. As a result, our body doesn’t get enough oxygen and it takes some time (usually 1 - 2 days) to get used to the high altitude condition. Until that time, you might face some health issues like headache, vomiting, breathlessness, and lack of appetite.
Thus, it is advisable to carry a personal thermometer and first aid kit and rest for at least a day when you reach Ladakh.
2. Climate in Leh Ladakh
As mentioned above, Ladakh occupies a greater part of the high-altitude mountain ranges and therefore the climate is cold throughout the year. One of the most important Ladakh travel tips is to know that there is cold wind throughout the day and night. Thus, people who are not able to bear extreme cold weather must avoid planning Ladakh trips during the winter months, that is, from November to March.
It is recommended to visit Ladakh during the summer season - April to June. It is also the best time to travel here for people of all age groups. During this time, you can go exploring the glaciers as well as trekking in its mountain passes and valleys.
3. Carry adequate clothes
One should be prepared with proper clothing when visiting Ladakh as it has a cold climate for most part of the year. Even during the months when the weather is relatively warmer, the nights are usually cold. So, keep adequate warm clothes with you even during the months of April to July when the weather is pleasant. In the winter months, you will need heavy woolens to survive. Also, remember to wear shoes at all times with socks as it will help you keep yourself warm as well as reduce the chance of getting hit by a bad cold. To give you a general idea, here is a list of clothes you must pack for your Leh Ladakh trip:
Carry 2 to 3 pairs of inner thermals
A fleece jacket to prevent the winds
Comfortable trekking pants or trousers
Carry caps and sunscreen lotions to protect yourself from direct sunlight
4. Tourist accommodation
As we know, March to June is the peak tourist season and it is recommended to book your accommodation in advance. It will be difficult for you to reach Ladakh and find a decent place to stay. On the other hand, the non-peak seasons are snowy but there are many tourists who visit during this time to see the snow-covered Himalayas. Also, keep in mind that you can hardly find a luxury stay option in Ladakh. Ladakh offers a lot of good homestays that provide visitors with an opportunity to see and experience the local culture closely.

5. Respect the culture
Ladakh is known for its simple living culture. The people here believe in traditional values. The food, clothes, lifestyle and language all differ from other parts of India. Wearing full-length clothes in place of worship and temples is appreciated. Hence, tourists must honor and respect the age-old traditional values that are still followed in Ladakh.
6. Carry important documents
One must keep at least one government identity card like Aadhar Card or Voter ID with you. Ensure that you are carrying original as well as a photocopy of these identity cards. Besides, one must carry other important documents on this trip that include medical insurance copy, hotel reservation slip, copy of flight tickets and a printout of your itinerary.
7. Night travel
The nights in Ladakh are beautiful. The sky is clear with millions of stars gazing upon you. While it is safe to travel in Ladakh at night as people are humble and of helpful nature, it is recommended to avoid traveling just like any other destination in India. The simple reason for this is that the roads are deserted and it would be very difficult to get any help in case of an emergency.
A journey to Ladakh is an experience in itself. If you are looking for a memorable Ladakh trip, the Leh Ladakh tour packages provided by Swan Tours are the perfect choice for you. Through our customized packages, you can explore Ladakh sightseeing points with a variety of other activities included in the package.
