    The only route open at the time is by air. However, many hotels have heating and Leh itself is a large town and locals do live there.

    You have to come very well prepared for extreme temperatures and weather conditions, plus also allow a few days in the beginning to get acclimatised to the altitude.

    Trekking times can change depending on whether there is snow or not, and how much. You would need a proper guide for that.

    A useful sight maybe
