Hi Folks,

I think about going to Ladakh in June. Is it okay weatherwise? Will it be still to cold to trek. I read somewhere that if it is hot in Delhi everybody moves to the mountains ( sort of everybody ). Does that mean I would have a hard time in Manali and on my way to Leh to find a place to stay?
Help and advice is most welcome.

Take care and have a great new year with lots of exciting trips.

Jochen

The northern hemisphere summer is in June, obviously, so I guess the weather in Ladakh goes from -5 to 25 degrees celcius.

What I've noticed, when it gets hot in Delhi, people don't go far north as places like Ladakh, but more to places like Shimla, and area in Himachal Pradesh, and Uttaranchal. So it's not as bad as what you think.

June is a perfect time for Ladakh. Manali may be crowded with domestic tourists, but Leh not too much.
For info, see: http://www.jktourism.org/cities/ladakh/tourist.htm
and the links.

Thank you

Hi and to you Indiamiker,

thank you so far for the good news. I have checked the calendar at work and I might have a chance to take off from June 8th to July 1st. I guess that would be a good time then in Ladakh.

If anyne has some other opinion or can add something to my "do-list" please feel free to do so.

Many Greetings from Germany and a Happy New Year to all of you

Jochen

Jochen, Manali might have a lot of tourists at that time, however you will be spending only a night or two there so that shouldnt be a problem. Like Sanjay said not many tourists go to Ladakh and that too in June.

Hi Jochen,
We were in Leh/Ladakh last June (17th-30th) and the weather was great. Cool evenings and quite warm during the day. We did a small trek, not too many other trekkers about as it is "early season" and we walked in shorts and t shirts. Take plenty of sun screen and a hat as it gets quite hot during the midday time.
I am returning this year in mid June for a look around the Nubra valley and a slightly longer, different trek in the Markha Valley. We also rafted down the Zanskar River to the junction of the Indus prior to our trek.. The Indus was a little low for rafting at this time of year as the snow still had some more melting to do, but still a great day out and not a difficult river, which suited me as it was my first rafting trip!!!
I intend to fly in and drive out via Manali as we felw in and out last time and we have only been to Himchal in the winter.
You will have a wondefull time wandering around Leh, checking out monastery's, old palaces etc. I did this trip last year with my 10 year old son. We are both going again this year as we had such a great time.
Enjoy
Russell

Sounds great

Hi Russell,

thank you for your post filled with good news. I still haven't booked anything because I still have to get my vacation plans trough at work but it looks like I will be able to take off from June 7th till July 2nd. I guess I will take the bus from Delhi to Manali and from there I will see.
Can't wait to get there. I will let you know if I can go and we might meet in Leh for some chai.

Thanks again.

Jochen

Hi Jochen,

June is a very good time for Ladakh.
Explore Leh and the surrounding places, then Hemis, Alchi, Lamayuru, perhaps do some trekking.
Just consider, flying into Leh and going back via Manali by bus.

Enjoy!

This year mountains receive very less snow...my judgment is that road will be ready by June. Although you can travel to Leh but trekking in June depends where you are going...high passes may be under snow..and becoming first to negotiate them requires luck and stamina.

Cool looking for HOUSE FOR RENT IN LEH

Hey people,
This is my first FORUM posting here; having joined the community a few minutes ago. Greetings to all.

We're working on a trip to Leh mid week July 2007: we could be about 10 people .

We're looking at the possibility of renting a house in Leh for two weeks: about 4 bedrooms, good toilet facilities, working kitchen and so on.

Any suggestions/tips where to begin our search?
Is this a feasible prospect?

Would love your feedbacks.

love and peace
Caesar

Use search feature of INDIAMIKE. There was a discussion on this subject and someone posted a website URL also. When checked this was found that website was not updated since 3-4years but telephone was working.I suggest to contact directly as house rentals in LEH is not much popular but you can certainly try.

Iam sure someone will be posting further on this issue. Keep in touch here !

House For Rent In Leh

Shucks,
I tried but didn't come up with any results : maybe I've got to learn the ropes a bit more.
If someone has some leads to offer, would appreciate very much.
cheers
