I am planning to visit leh from April 21st to 30th by flight. I had earlier visited leh during Aug-Sept and fell in love with the beautiful colours of nature. I am worried that during these dates of April, all i will be able to see is white snow all around.
Can you guys please let me know if all the places in and around leh are mostly covered with snow and the lakes frozen?? It would be a deal-breaker if that’s the case 🙁
I was planning on visiting Nubra Valley, Pangong Tso lake , Tso Moriri etc?
Any other suggestions for places to visit would also be helpful.
Thanks in advacne –
PS : You guys are the best ! Hope you are aware and proud of the fact that this platform provides such immense source of help and confidence for novice travellers.
Thank you so much for the kind words !!
This year it has not been much of a snow and by end of April, either the lakes will be melted or partially frozen only. So, white blanket of snow will be hard to see and find. Only on passes like Khardung La and Chang La you will find plenty of snow rest not much.
You can check a very balanced and most common itinerary for Leh – Ladakh by Air followed by many travelers including me at the link here for 9 days: Leh – Ladakh | Most Common Itinerary by Air.
WoW … before I thank you for the info, I need to thank you for the very prompt reply ! 🙂 🙂

Good Morning Dheeraj !
Bro, I was planning the following … Would appreciate if you could give your views about it
Day 1 : Reaching @noon. Keeping the full day for rest or just leisure walks around.
Day 2 : Hire a bike for 1 day, to go for the Shaam Valley , Alchi , Basgo , Magnetic Hills tour.
Is it safe to do the bike trip on the second day itself ?
The places can be explored independently on bike without any driver etc?
Anyways, from third day i plan to hire a cab for the rest of the trip. But wanted to experience the bike feel for this short stint of shaam valley.
Yes, the second day if you are feeling good, you can opt for Sham Valley tour as a bike ride. And yes, the places can be explored independently. Sham Valley is a good place or option for a novice bike ride and experience of riding in Ladakh for beginners 🙂
