Day 1: Fly to Leh | Arrival
- Altitude 11,400 ft.
- Arrival in Ladakh
Keep your woollen cap and gloves handy. You will be flying over long stretches of snow-covered Himalayan mountains, which will make it evident why it’s impossible to reach Ladakh on road in the winters. The moment you land in Leh, a cold and crisp air will greet you, and you will experience a drastic change in the temperature. Leh has just begun to wake up from its sleep with only a few shops open.
The chill in the air will serve only as a preview of the temperatures during this winter trek. Be sure to take enough rest to acclimatize to the weather here and remember to drink enough water and keep you hydrated. The night is spent in a guest house.
