The level of this trek leans from moderate to slightly difficult, which naturally demands exceptional physical fitness, stamina, and endurance. It is strongly advisable to have prior trekking experience of scaling at least 3,500 meters before you approach this trek, which means beginners should stay away. Also, proper acclimatization is key here.
The best season to do this trek is from Mid August to Mid October, when the weather conditions have dialed down a notch as the snow clears up considerably, and the temperatures aren’t too harsh.
You can take a direct flight to Leh from Delhi, Mumbai, and Srinagar. Take a cab to the base camp from Leh Airport.
You can reach Leh by road either from Srinagar or from Manali, although the Srinagar route is widely preferred over the Manali route.
Jammu Tawi is the nearest railways station to Leh and is well connected to most major cities like Delhi, Mumbai, and Chennai.
