Peak season is always May and June these days. There are plenty of people arriving by air and road at that time, and this is unlikely to change. If anything, May is likely to get more crowded due to Manali route reopening as well.

Lack of snow might be a put off for many. However, there are no other options this year, short of an international holiday to Europe.

IT would be a good idea to book in advance for Sonamarg, Kargil and Manali.

1. What about visiting Ladakh in third and/or fourth week of September? Will there be snow at Khardung La, Chang La and on the way to Manali?
2. And will there be water crossings?
3. Is Agham - Shyok route doable during this period?
4. How would be the weather?

1. If there is fresh snowfall when you're there, then only you will be able to find it at Khardung La, Chang La, Tanglang La or Baralacha La. Snow won't stay more than a day.

2. Yes. However, they will be fewer.

3. Yes, unless a landslide is blocking it.

4. Weather starts turning cold, but it is still comfortable in Leh. However, at rest of the places and even in Leh at night, you will need woolen. But nothing too harsh, except at Pangong, Tso Moriri and Sarchu/Pang.

Thanks, Yogesh bhai :)

Usual political rambling.

It is one thing to clear the pass, quite another to stabilize it and open it for public at large. Hence the difference between the pass being open and officially open. Locals ply their vehicles before the official opening of the pass and after the official closing, at their own risk and usually after getting into arguments with cops.

Having said that, Srinagar – Leh should reopen on Monday in all likelihood.
