hi,
we have booke our flights from london-delhi-leh-chennai-london. our leh itenary is 14th fri oct to 21st fri october.

one of our plans is to hire a bullet and ride to nubra(overnighter) and back and then to pangong lake(overnighter) and back. we can handle cold weather.

do you all think if this is ambitious riding a motorbike, given it is october and will roads be snowed out and closed?
regards
sri

My 2 Cents -:

Well in October all mountain passes tend to receive snowfall much frequently. So, chances of them being closed for a day or two high. You should keep some buffer days too in your plan.

Secondly, many of the accommodation options at Pangong Tso would be packed by then leaving you with very limited number or may benil around the lake apart from one or two guest houses which are present there.

hi,
thanks. i think i just have to cross my fingers and hoe all is well around that time. in pangong lake, we were planning to stay in one of the tented accommmodations next to the lake. are suggesting that these will be closed by the time we get there? i have not got in touch with any guesthouse/hotel/tented accommodations as i was thinking that it will not be a problem to get something around that time. am i wrong?
regards
sri

Yes, those tented accommodation may be closed by that time. Nopes mostly these accommodation are not run by the locales rather people from outside as well, who pack-up and go to their respective hometowns as the season ends. I guess there is a guest house as well very near to the lake where you find the accommodation.

Hello Srini,

Me & my wife also planning to be in Leh from Oct 13 to 20th. I was also interested in renting a bike locally and riding upto NUbra/Pangong. Like how you mentioned, the overnight accomodation will be a touch and go thing, we will have to see once we are in Leh. Let me know so that we can tag along!! Chao!
