Air route is the only way to reach Leh during blood-jamming winters. All flights reach Leh in the morning, before noon strikes. Do not forget to look at the awe-striking surge mountain range, covered by a snowy blanket as soon as your plane enters the Ladakh region, which is 11,800ft higher than trekking area.Also, put on all warm clothes like the jacket, cap and gloves to face the always-negative temperature and never-ending cold weather of the place. You will get to see white layers of snow, which sometimes convert to bulky sheets of ice.
Keep an eye on your foot to prevent sliding or falling. Don’t keep your shopping pending for Leh as the city is kept partially closed during the winters. Only the shops, fulfilling the primary needs stay opened. Location’s temperature will be around -10°C in day duration and below -16°C in nights. So, try staying at hotel rooms at dawn, instead of roaming out in the cold breezes.
