Overview of Leh Ladakh trip in August

Posted By : Dinkar Kamat/ 2759 1

It’s important to understand that tourism activities in Leh-Ladakh are limited to only 5 months in a year. The season to visit Ladakh is from May to October. In fact, the peak tourist season is considered to be from June to September. Though August can cause its share of problems due to monsoon, many travellers prefer visiting Leh-Ladakh during this period. A Leh Ladakh trip in August is exciting, thrilling, and even allows you to explore the region without the presence of too many tourists.


Leh Ladakh Trip in August


Though August may not be the best time to visit Leh-Ladakh, it definitely comes with certain advantages. Since it will be raining during this period, it’s important to prepare yourself for the trip. Visiting rugged terrain with water flowing endlessly down the windscreen or helmet can cause some serious troubles. If you’re keen on visiting Leh-Ladakh in August, it’s highly recommended to consult a reputed tour operator.


Monsoon Season in Ladakh


It’s worth mentioning that Ladakh region is a rain-shadow area. Hence, it receives either very less rainfall or no rainfall at all. However, monsoon can cause damage to roads in nearby areas of Kashmir and Himachal Pradesh. The monsoon season in northern India arrives in July and stays throughout August. It’s better to plan a trip in the second half of August, since the intensity of the monsoon then, will significantly reduce.


Leh Ladakh temperature in August ranges somewhere between 25 degree celsius to 10 degree celsius. With rains subsiding in the second half of the month, the overall Leh Ladakh weather during this period is pleasant. It’s still better to carry a good number of thermals, a raincoat and other required gear.

Driving in August


For a Leh Ladakh trip in August, it’s important to be careful about driving conditions. If you’re not a seasoned driver, you should consult a tour operator and plan your trip under the supervision and guidance of experts. Heavy rains can cause damage to several roads leading to Leh. Most damage is seen on Rohtang Pass and Zoji La Pass.


In fact, some parts of narrow roads and highways can be completely washed away. It can be quite a challenge to maneuver a bike or a car through such difficult conditions. In addition to this, landslides are also an important concern.


While planning a trip to Leh-Ladakh in August, you should keep a few buffer days in the itinerary. This allows you to plan everything properly. In case an internal road or a highway gets shut down, you’ll still be able to manage everything without skipping any attractions.


Reputed tour operators have a team of well-trained support staff and seasoned trekkers. With their guidance, you can plan the perfect trip to Leh-Ladakh. Renok Adventures has been conducting and organising trips to Leh-Ladakh for quite some time. If you want to get in touch with our team to discuss your requirements, please click here.
