Hello,

I'd like to do the bike trip from Leh to Ladakh. Is mid october a good time? Would the weather be bad during this time? Any pointers would be helpful.

Thanks,
Nisha

Mid October would be cold but the passes are likely to remain open with inconsistent blockage. Fellow tourist would be very few in numbers which eventually would lead to less number of tourist vehicle plying in different destinations across the region. Things might turn scary incase of bike breakdown in remote places.

It seems that you need a bit more homework otherwise you will find yourself between a rock and a hard place.

In my experience , over the last decades , open all year round, and inroads open a lot longer than commonly believed. Here are some pics taking the Srinagar-Leh road in , early December :

This year the road opened , earliest ever , in late March.

Once you are inside Ladakh the roads are open all year round, the market is open all year round, and dozens of hotels and restaurants stay open all year round.

However the OP wants to ride from Leh to Ladakh, which is, umm, a very short ride so he or she can do it any time. Because Leh is in Ladakh: Leh District is half of Ladakh, or Leh town is the biggest town in Ladakh.
