Stunning mountain landscapes, remote villages, ancient gompas and ruined forts attract a small but steady stream of visitors to this remote region of the Himalaya. Most visitors enter and exit via Leh the largest city in the region which has daily flights from Delhi. Trekking is best from late June to September when the snow melts and daily temperatures are warm. This rest of the Himalaya experience monsoon rainfalls during these months so if you are planning a trip during this time Ladakh is the best option. Leh lies at 3500m so you should give yourself a few days to acclimatize before you start any trekking. If you are travelling overland to Ladakh it is possible to reach via Bus from either Srinagar or Manali (typically open from May to November). These overland routes through the mountains on bus take you through breathtaking mountain scenery and are worth doing if you have the time.

Any 6000m+ peak needs to be taken seriously and Stok Kangri is no exception. It might be called a trekking peak but the final 1000m to the summit is seriously steep and tough going.
Too many travelers arrive in Leh and then spend the rest of their vacation making long drives to visit all the sites.
Khardung La at a height of 18,380 ft is the world's highest motorable road. The pass traverses the Ladahk Range as it connects the city of Leh and the Indus Valley to the Nubra Valley.
