October month also gives you multiple options to reach Ladakh safely. If you plan for a road trip, you can either take the Srinagar-Leh Highway or the Manali-Leh Highway. In case you don’t know, both these routes are equally enthralling and has their own fun and thrill factor. Both these routes offer quite a smooth driving experience throughout the October month. Even if you plan for a motorcycle ride to Ladakh from either Manali or Srinagar, you can enjoy a hassle-free ride to Ladakh.

Once you reach the valley, you would soon realise a drop in the temperature range. Compared to the last month; September, you would experience 4 to 5 degrees dip in the mercury level. Despite, you would surely enjoy this change in the weather. Compared to the days, nights usually get crispier as temperature dips highly during the nights. To cope with this change in Ladakh weather in October, you should pack very carefully. Carrying decent number of warm clothes should be enough for daytime, but to overcome the crispier nights, you must carry heavy clothes.

In case, you are planning for a trip by or post the second week of October, you should be aware that there are heavy chances that the Manali-Leh Highway will shut down as harsh weather are ahead in the month of November. In fact, the Baralacha La Pass along the Manali-Leh Highway starts receiving snowfall by this time, and hence the route gets shut.

During this time, even the locals in the valley starts preparing for the extreme weather conditions. Thus, availing basic services could become a challenge if your trip falls in the later part of October month. But then, if you plan to wind up your Ladakh tour before the mid part of the month, you should not worry much about the extreme conditions of Ladakh weather in October.

Keeping all the weather-related challenges aside, October is still considered as an ideal month to plan a Ladakh trip as this month shows you the kaleidoscopic side of the region. With greeneries all around, wild flowers blooming everywhere, safer roads to reach out to places, you would surely enjoy your trip like never before!
