Into the Wild | Leh in Winters

Near Khardungla : On the way to Nubra Valley Leh Ladakh in Winters
                            Near Khardungla : On the way to Nubra Valley
One needs to get completely out of one's head or physically very strong to visit Ladakh in Winters. I and Vijay certainly fall in the former category. I am not sure whether it was an attempt to get out of rut ? ..or deep-rooted escapist tendency that led us to Ladakh in the month of January. Delhi was already shivering with the cold breeze and yet we decided to take the early morning flight to Leh ( one can not reach Leh by road in winters as all the connecting passes get closed due to heavy snow fall )....Flight was sparsely occupied ... As Flight took off the initial apprehension disappeared though excitement still persisted. We were not sure for how long we are going stay there. Like Always it was precipitous trip. Random thoughts of demented mind were running through our head.

Delhi to Leh was some 2 hours flight and we landed to the GOD's own abode. Ladakh was like ever before. Ecstatic terrain that mesmerized me at its very first glimpse. Thin air that i could feel from the very first breath I took in...Ethereal mountains and thrilling elevation... now we were walking into the Wild... During Winters, Leh turns into a lonesome city.. completely different than what you experience during summers..terrain becomes dry and haunting..... Most of the locals of the city recede to warmer plains of northern India....we reached to heart of the city,the market. all the shops were closed except the one at the T-point. Leh was freezing with negative 15 mercury. we ordered two cup of tea and asked that shopkeeper that we are looking for a place to stay and that too for a long time. I still remember the devious smile at his face. he looked at us weirdly with empty gaze and asked "Aap log yahan sardiyon main kya karne aaye hain ?".. and that's when it all started.. story of two footloose in India's most desolated terrain in the month of freezing winters and it certainly changed our lives

Later we talked about our previous experiences to high altitude places and told them that we had been to Ladakh in Summers couple of times and have a desire to experience the beauty of this place in a different season. Though none was convinced with that answer neither were we...

After two cup of tea. we kept our luggage on that shop itself to start our hunt for an accommodation in Leh. Most of the hotels were closed. finally we were able to get a room in a hotel that was partially closed but owner was still staying there. She charged heavily but offered a room with plenty of duvets and blankets. Room heating equipment was also there on optional basis. There were couple of restriction too...

* Only 1 bucket water will be given for the day.....(though other forms of water(Ice and snow) were in surplus)
* Electricity will come only for an hour in a day so if you want to charge your camera etc. Get your schedule in order
* 2 hot water fabric pillows will be given at 8 'o clock in the night... Hot Water Fabric pillows were a delight...
* Drinking water will be available 24*7...

After getting the accommodation,we roamed around in the partially desolated city of Leh where every one was looking at us with a suspicious gaze. Shortly after we head to the DM office to get the inner line permits for the border areas. again we had to justify our visit to Ladakh in winters. Thankfully,We got the permissions very easily...

1st night : We denied to get a room heating equipment because we thought we can survive without it in that deplorable temperature. and it was a mistake. a huge one. Night was arctic. temperature went below -25 Celsius. we both could not sleep for the entire night..
In the morning we reached to landlady again and asked her to provide us room heating device (that runs on LPG)...We had to bargain a lot to cut down the charges. again we were supposed to run it in the night only. that too for 2 hours and if the cylinder will get empty. we will have to pay for the new cylinder...

Days were also very cold. temperature was always below -5 degree Celsius. Now it was time to find some place to find food on regular basis. though we carried significant amount of ready to eat stuff from Delhi but it started to shrink day by day. finally we figured out that there is just one restaurant where we can take dinner and that too we have to finish before 7 PM. Thin air already started showing its impact on our body. we were weary kind but getting acclimatize slowly slowly...

Frozen Indus river in Leh Ladakh in Winters
                                 Frozen Indus river in Leh Ladakh
first couple of days were relaxing and we spent most of our time in hotel room and roaming around in the city,clearing snow,talking to locals, taking tea and kehwa, hiking smaller hills and enjoying the surrounding in leisure pace. For next couple of days, we took local buses to some villages those were completely shut down and frozen. There was no greenery in the entire valley due to heavy snowfall. all the rivers including Indus and Zanksar were partially frozen. we walked on those frozen rivers. spent days on the river's bank. staring at the great Himalayas peaks. getting lost in those oblivion villages in the magnificent cold desert of Ladakh. Ladakhi people are very gentle and Ladakh is free from any annoyance. you can roam around anywhere,do camping,visit monasteries,get completely desolated,do treks on those frozen rivers,society will not intrude at all...

For us, Time was running without relativity. it was just time. there was no Sunday,Monday. no date. no calendar, no watch. no cigarette...
Snow and the lost city
                                                  Snow and the lost city
We had a preconceived assumption in the mind that we can not reach to the border areas as snow might have blocked all the passes.. then we researched a bit,talked with locals and we found a driver who assured that he will take us to Nubra Valley and Pangong lake. Excitement again built up. we booked that car for next couple of days. woke up very early in the morning. and headed towards Khardungla pass to reach Nubra. After some distance we reached to a army check post and they stopped us from going ahead. road was blocked. We met to an army officer and tried to convince him but no help. we had to get down to the Leh again. though army person hinted us a bleak hope that we can get through tomorrow...

Next morning we again tried to head up. and luckily this time were through Khardungla. Khardungla was glorious like ever before. it was an amazing landscape covered with snow but the beauty of the desert was stupendous. Nubra valley is colder than Leh as its surrounded by high mountains. We reached to the village hundar in the evening and everything was closed. Some Ladakhi children were ice skiing. getting a place to stay for the night was a wild goose chase but finally we found a room to stay with a weird look from the owner. Nubra valley is a desert with sand dunes and wild life on extinction and luckily we were able to see camel with two humps. whole valley witnessed heavy snow fall in last couple of days so we experienced a distinctive beauty. A desert covered with snow. again we had a freezing night ahead. till now we were kind of acclimatized...

Sleepless in Ladakh :
Vijay could not sleep properly since the day we arrived at Ladakh. he started feeling sick. Chemists in Leh were not giving us any sleeping pills as they perceived me a drug addict. but we were still travelling in that freezing winter. finally the crash point arrived when we were in nubra valley. vijay was very sick and we had to find a hospital ASAP. and courtesy Indian army. we got one hospital and doctor prescribed some medicines for acute mountain sickness..

we were back from Nubra valley and spending time in leh again. now we were very much comfortable with the surroundings. Pangong lake was on the top of the bucket list. after couple of days,we planned for pangong trip and decided to return back that day itself as there was no place to stay near pangong. we headed off very early in the morning. terrain was typical Ladakh. snow covered valley,thin air,dry mountains without flora and rare fauna. after some hours of drive crossing changla pass,we reached pangong lake. lake was partially frozen. temperature dipped drastically at that point and wind was gusting high on that flat terrain. a flock of migrated birds from Siberia was swimming in that freezing water. huge icebergs were colliding each other on the lake surface. weather was impossible to stand with. besides each of these actions,beauty of pangong was stunning even in this dreadful season. our driver did not dare to come out of the car. we came out. did some photography and then ran back to keep ourselves a bit warm. time to drive back to Leh before sunset...

it had been a long break to this isolation and we started getting out of money. so we decided to get a flight back to Delhi. and we booked one but future still zipped some drama for us. we reached to the airport. whole valley witnessed heavy snowfall last night so runway was closed and there was no incoming/outgoing flight in Leh. we come back to the same hotel room in a hope of getting depart the next day. next morning we again reached to the airport and luckily flight from Delhi arrived but due to no outgoing flight since last couple of days, airport was packed with passengers and airlines asked us to wait for some more days. then came up the altercation(verbal) scene with airlines staff. and we won. we got 2 seats and landed back in Delhi. took bathe. did shaving. took good food in a restaurant. and hoped that nights won't be sleepless anymore...

and if you ask us would we like to do it again. we'll surrender thinking...

Is there any road on which we can take a bike in january.i have been to ladakh in august when we rented bikes, planning to go again in winter.Also can we go to kargil war memorial in january??


No. there is no road open in

No. there is no road open in January.

Hi, Unfortunately no, most of


Unfortunately no, most of the passes to reach ladakh are closed during January. And to be frank have been to ladakh in Jan, its spine chilling even inside a heated car, riding bike in these condations would be very challenging. Although seen some locals riding in Leh. But didn't found any bullerier during Jan.

As far as Kargil war memorial is considered, its very much open in Jan. Also khardung la, Pangong are also manageble during jan, depending on the current snowfall.

Yes. March is indeed a good

Yes. March is indeed a good time. its Spring and Ladakh looks beautiful. It will be very cold but you can easily make it to Pangong lake which may be partially or fully frozen. Hotels and restaurants would not be a problem.

Dear Vishnu,   I was thinking

Dear Vishnu,


I was thinking of going to Leh in mid December along with my wife and 7 yr old son. I understand that the climate will be extremely cold and it will be snowing.  We have been to many hill stations, including Badrinath, Mussorie and Tawang but I thought it would be better to take some tips before I try out Leh, that too in winter.  Though my son has been to the hills before, it has never been in such a cold weather.  What would you advise?  Both wife and son are keen.




No problem visiting Ladakh in

No problem visiting Ladakh in December. Weather will be cold but easily manageable. carry warm cloths and rest is fine. most of the tourist attractions remain open so you can easily explore as well.

Hi iam from malaysia and i am

Hi iam from malaysia and i am planning to visit Ladakh mid Dec with my husband. Is it recommended to go in dec?


Hey,   It is simply beautiful



It is simply beautiful out there in Ladakh at the time you're planning to visit, and totally lonely. Plus extremely cold. If you can withstand sub-zero temperatures throughout (to the tune of -30 degrees at night), please must visit. This is the primary criteria.


Most of the touristy things shut shop (like hotels etc.). Only a handful of accomodation options are there, plus you can homestay. Food is available in limited options if you prefer non-Ladakhi cuisine. Thin oxygen cover is another thing to look out for. All in all, its more of an adventure trip than a normal holiday.


Let know if you need more info, but better give a serious thought to above info Smile

Thanks for adding your

Thanks for adding your extremely valuable inputs. I concur 100 % with you. However now Leh in Winters is not longer a fancy destination. There are many tourists during Winters in Ladakh. In terms of accommodation as well, now more guest house remains open due to Chadar and other winter treks.

Time has gone when Ladakh was completely desolated during winters. now tourist sighting is very common. You can see the comments on this post itself which indicate that now there is decent tourist inflow during winters.

Thanks for your comment and keep droppung by.


Hi, This is a pretty


This is a pretty inspirational blog, actually we are group of 4 planned for chadar trek from 22-31 Jan this year, but unfortunately due to landslide the chadar trek has been cancelled by the governing authoriy.

We have done all the flight bookings and will reach leh on 22nd morning, your blog has given us a ray of hope that travelling in leh during Jan is posible, since we were plannig to drop the plan and cancel our tickets.

We have 10 days in our hand, could you suggest how we can manage our trip to leh so that we can have an immemorable experience.





Hi Ankit, In 10 days, you can

Hi Ankit,

In 10 days, you can visit Pangong lake, Nubra Valley and even go to Tso-moriri lake. Visit Chumthang region. Roads should be open more or less.  There is a lot which you can do and i will not suggest to cancel the flight bookings.

+- Vishnu

We have planned for sham

We have planned for sham valley trek as an alternative, surely we would try to incorporate Pangong lake, Nubra Valley and even go to Tso-moriri lake as well.


Yes, i also read somewhere

Yes, i also read somewhere that Sham Valley is do-able and even Markha valley. Good pick. All the best.

I am going to be there in

I am going to be there in March-- my third trip.

Can your share about footwear?

I have Woodlands-- would they do or should I get snowboots?




No need for snow-boots.

No need for snow-boots. Woodlands would work. Carry many pairs of woolen shocks. rest is fine.

Excellent write up

Excellent write up Vishnu.

You give me confidence to go ahead with my plans.

I am planning of Srinagar and Leh in March. Any idea of how to go between Srinagar to Leh- without the flight?

ANy idea on the ground level temperature/eather conditions in March in Leh?




Hi Saurabh, as far as i know

Hi Saurabh, as far as i know Zozila pass will be closed in march so you will not be able to reach Leh by road from Srinagar. March is cold however temperature during day time may be little higher due to more sun.

Hi Vishnu,   Myself and wife

Hi Vishnu,


Myself and wife planning to travel to Leh this winter around new year's eve (Jan 2015 1st week). We are based out of Delhi.


Have lot of queries (will keep asking) but foremost among them is the type of clothes needed at that time?


Can we get such clothes on rent in Leh or in Delhi? Since, I am assuming that such heavy woollens would not be of much use to us later.




Hi Mitin, Yes, you can get

Hi Mitin,

Yes, you can get warm Apparels in Delhi on Rent from Indian Mountaineering Foundation (IMF).

As suggested by Vishnu, you have to wear clothes in Layers (Warm Inners, T-Shirts, Fleece Pullovers/Jackets, Down Jackets).

You can get Down Jacket from IMF on Rent.

Since you are planning for 1st Week Jan, if you postpone your travel by 10 days, you can actually do the Chadar Trek if interested.

All the Best.



Hi Bobby, Thanks for adding

Hi Bobby,

Thanks for adding useful insight about renting apparels from IMF. I never heard about it.

Keep dropping by and keep adding your expert inputs.

Vishnu Kumar

Hi Bobby,   Thanks a bunch

Hi Bobby,


Thanks a bunch for the IMF info Smile


Saving Chadar trek for another time, this time its Ladakh for sure - a long pending plan. Plus, Chadar I believe will be more arduous, so this will help us prepare for that trip too!


Thanks once again, keep sharing the great info.




I am not sure if you can get

I am not sure if you can get cloths on rent in Delhi or Leh. Chances are slim and i don't think there is any need.

For Ladakh in Winters, you would need multiple layers of woolen inner, T-shirts, sweat-shirt and then a heavy jacket.

Similar 4 layers in the bottom.

and 2 layers of shocks.

Carry hot water bottol (Fabric one), which you need to keep with you in the night.

Rest is fine.

M travelling in month of jan.

M travelling in month of jan. Is it the best time to travel. What would be the temp.

There is no such thing as

There is no such thing as best time to visit Ladakh. January is the coldest month in Ladakh. Temperature may drop to -25 or less. January is different than rest of the year. Infact all the seasons are different and have their own charm.

Hi I'll start of by saying

Hi I'll start of by saying that we'll be the three of us travelling to leh. My dad (48 years old), my Mom (42), and me (19). I would like to know what kind of temperatures we'll be facing there during the first week of Feb. Day and night temperatures. An estimate will do. And further, what kind of clothing, protection will be required to survive through such weather. Also, my dad has some sinus issues, difficulty in breathing sometimes, etc. so could you advise me on that front as well. Can I carry something like portable oxygen cylinders or something like that? Ill be taking a train from Mumbai to Delhi, and then a flight from Delhi to Leh. Apart from that, we are physically fit travelers, determined, and able and have been to leh before as well, albeit in the summers. So, is it difficult to acclimatise for people with no conditions such as myself and my Mom?

Before going further, i would like to state that we are very budget conscious travelers, and hence do not like to stay in expensive hotels. So what kind of accommodation would you suggest for us during that period, also where will we be able to find food. We have no problems in eating anything, we are non-vegetarians and as such have no predispositions towards new cuisines (we have sampled the ladakhi-tibetan cuisine once already, and have found it to our liking, so any food will do).

I would also like to know how to move around in leh. We planned on going to the confluence of the Indus and Zanskar, just to view the Chaddar walk starting point, we DONT want to do the entire chadar walk, just for a small 2 hour walk on the chadar or something like that, and wanted to visit the hemis forest as well. However, any inputs from you on any other locations close by, and how they can be reached (bus,car etc) in winter will be appreciated.

If you own an SLR, I would absolutely love some tips on how to handle the camera in such temperatures. I'll be carrying two DSLR's from here on the journey, and during some preliminary research, i have seen that the camera goes through a lot of torture in such climates. So any tips/tricks etc would be appreciated.

Thanks a lot in advance,
Firoz Ujjainwalla.

Hi Firoz, So many questions

Hi Firoz,

So many questions in a single comment.. Laughing out loud

Well, if you already been to Ladakh during summers then Cold would be the key challenge. First week of February would be very cold. temperature in night will go as below as -20 or may be less. Day time temperature is also in negative. Carry the best woolens, multiple layers, jackets and everything which you can find. Have multiple layers of cloths

Well, not all the places would be accessible on public transport. there are buses but only to nearby villages. You may have to hire private taxi. You can visit Hemis national park, can go till the starting point of Chadar trek.

With respect to SLR, its not different than operating in normal temperature except your hands will shake a lot. portable oxygen cylinder might be availble in Leh but i don't think you would need those. Normaly it takes 2-3 days to get acclimatize at that altitude.

Few restaurants remain open during winters.

You are welcome.

Hi Vishnu. Thanks for this

Hi Vishnu. Thanks for this awesome blog. It now gives me hope that I can travel to Leh this December. Can you please let me know whether I'l be able to camp in that cold with a proper sleeping bag and good winter wear? Or is it too dificult. Also can I reach Khardung La and Pangong So in mid December renting a motorcycle? The most important thing is this is my first ever visit to low. I am used to negative temperatures as I am in New Zealand right now but I have not been at such altitudes. Cna you please tell any other important things to remmber? Also I am going alone.

Yes, Camping is possible.

Yes, Camping is possible. During Chadar trek, people do camping over the frozen landscape but you need really high quality gear to deal with cold. very good jackets and very good tents etc..

Khardungla etc won't  be possible on motorbike. There would be lot of black-ice so driving bike is more or less impossible..

Yes, Cold weather is not the prime challenge if you are visiting Ladakh in Winters. Altitude would be something you need to watch carefully. you should rest for first couple of days after arriving at Leh to acclimatize and then start your tours around the town.

Where exactly are you planning to do camp ?

+- Vishnu

Sorry I forgot about Khardung

Sorry I forgot about Khardung La. So if its not possible to reach Khardung La top, is there any other way to visit Nubra Valley?

Yes, it is possible to reach

Yes, it is possible to reach Khadungla Top during winters. Trip to Nubra is done by Khardungla only.

I am planning to visit the

I am planning to visit the Pugthal Monastery walking from Padum. I read some blogs which say there are two villages namely Cha and Anmu. I am hoping to stay in one of these villages. If I do not get a house to stay I have to camp. I have a sleeping bag with a temperature rating of -15 C . And obviously I will get myself multiple layers of woolen wear. Is this enough? My doubt is will bus services be open in December for Leh to Padum?Then I want to go for Chadar trek and if weather permits I will go for one of the summits.Then i may go to Spituk monastery. Also I want to go to Pangong So and Tso Moriri. Is is possible to camp near these lakes? I want to see the night sky at these places. I will have enough time to acclamatize becasue I roughly have around 45-50 days allloted for this trip.So no hurrying up.

After all the adventure I will have a vist to Srinagar,Dal lake and the regular tourist spots over there.Is it possible to reach Srinagar by bus or should i have to book a flight?  I haven't put together any iternaires as such becsue i want some uncertainity in my trip. The only other thing which I would like to know is about the food. Should i have to carry a lot of ready made stuff or will food be available in all the places mentioned above?

Additionally, can you please give me some idea about staying and also the flights to and from Leh.Is advanced booking needed during the winter or is it pretty easy to find accomodation without prior booking.Same doubt with respect to flight tickets as well. Thanks buddy.

Hi Venkatesh,I am not sure

Hi Venkatesh,
I am not sure about Bus service but i remember few people have taken taxi from Padum to Leh last winter. In december, chances are bright to find bus service operational. I am not sure about the trekking trails to those villages but all the inhabitated villages are reachable by walk so reaching there should not be a problem if you know the route.

45-50 days are more than enough to visit the places you outlined but some of those might not be accessible the time you are planning to visit.

Pangong and Tso-Moriri are more of less accessible through out the winter and Yes, you can do camping near the lakes if you are up for freezing weather and high altitude.

You need to take flight from Leh to Srinagar as Zozila pass will be closed for sure.

Carry a lot of ready to eat stuff spcially chocolates and dry fruits. In villages, you can eat in the homestays you are staying and in Leh, you can find couple of restaurants open.

Flights will be very cheap during winters so you can book these anytime as per your preference. There will be very few accommodation options during winters but there won't be any need to do booking in advance. you can easily get something to stay.

let me know if you have any other query. Will be happy to help. I am really excited to read about the adventure you are planning. It will for sure be amazing experience.

+- Vishnu

Hi Vishnu, excellent writeup

Hi Vishnu, excellent writeup and I'm sure you had an amazing experience. I mostly got all the info about visiting leh during winters after going though your travelogue and reading the comments, however; a personal suggestion may help more. I and 2 of my friends are visiting leh during Xmas time for 4 days. I've booked flight tickets and plan to look for a hotel when I reach there. Amongst us, its me who will visit Leh for the first time. I have travelled a lot before during winters in Himachal but I'm sure the situation will be quite different in Leh. Here are some questions of mine to you and it would be great if you can share some insights:

1. Is it ok if I book hotels after reaching there?

2. Since I only have four days in hand, can I plan to travel to Pangong Tso and Khardungla on the second or third day (provided the roads are open for travel)?

3. What is the temp level to be expected during that time?

4. If not Pangong and Khardungla, what are our options so that we can enjoy the most during our visit?

5. Any other suggestions would be welcome from your end Smile




Hi Sumit!! Thanks for

Hi Sumit!!

Thanks for dropping by.. here is my take on your queries..

1) Yes, its fine you want to book hotel after your arrival..

2) Yaa, Pangong as a day trip and Khardungla as a day trip can be done..

3) There are many monasteries in nearby town.. you can visit Thiksey Monastery, Spituk Monastery, Shey Gompa/palace and Hemis monastery.

4) If possible, extend your stay by 2-3 more days... Smile.. Rest is fine and it is going to be awesome..

Hi Gaurav, Ladakh in January

Hi Gaurav,

Ladakh in January is not a holiday trip. Its for die-heart adventure lovers and one should have prior experience of Ladakh before visiting Ladakh during winters.

Temperature may drop as below as -30 degree and it will be quite chilly...

1) i will not recommend this trip with old age people and kid..

2) Generally you can visit Pangong lake, Nubra valley and even Tso-Morir during winters.

3) Yes, most of the hotels will be closed. There are only 3-4 hotels those run through out the year.

4) Taxi cost will differ for each route. Here is the detailed taxi fare chart..
