I will try to enlist below some tips on packing your Clothing for Ladakh trip in the start of season (April End to June) and end of season (mid-September to mid October) because both these windows have some winter or cold conditions up there in Ladakh or Trans Himalayas. Hence, once shall be prepared with clothing when visiting trans Himalayan places in these time windows. July - August are considered to be pleasant and light woolens mostly do the job for you.

Sahil bhai, Gopinath Baazar Army Cantt is the best place to get them in case you gonna use them for only the trips to Himalayas :) There are couple of shops there and I will provide all the details for it and you can check them.

Do get couple of pairs of thermal inners, woolen cap, gloves may not be required but still get them, couple of pairs of woolen socks and a jacket. Siddharth in the meet suggested that there are army type woolen jackets available which he used for the entire trip and are not that costly too.

Sahil, not really needed though you will get some really good army shoes too up there in Gopinath Baazar of all quality and prices. Some are very light too.

Good tips for visiting Ladakh in India. Last month I visited to Delhi for some work. I visited some places near to Delhi. The Ladakh is one of them. It's really a wonderful place in India. The people are really good. The Indian traditions is always eye catching to me and my family. Thank for this tips. I would definitely remember next time when I visit to Ladakh.

Hi Dheeraj
Travelling 2-Sep to 9-Sep to Ladakh.
Do I need to carry heavy woollens? Is winter jacket necessary or a regular thin windshitter with thermal inners is sufficient? Woollen caps,socks,gloves??
