Most roads to Ladakh, even in the end of April, usually remain closed due to heavy snow. Even though you can reach Ladakh by air, you may not be able to visit some of the most famous attractions in and around Ladakh due to unfriendly weather conditions. However, a staycation won't be out of question.
Hi Sheetal, The best time to visit Ladakh would be around June-Aug. By mid-June, the snow starts melting and you can watch all the beautiful lakes in the area. Still, let me divide the months based on conditions in Ladakh: April - May: Snowfall stops, summers begin. Some snowfall-affected roads may still be closed. Max temp:15 degrees, Min temp: -1 degrees June-Aug: Peak tourist season. Expect great sights and heavy crowd. Max temp: 25 degrees, Min temp: 10 degrees Sep-Oct: Snowfall begins, cool waves in the region. Max temp: 14 degrees, Min temp: -1 degrees Nov-Jan: Freezing temperatures, only accessible through flights. Treks and some sights open for tourists. Max temp: 7 degrees, Min temp: -14 degrees Feb-Mar: Likely water and electricity shortage, gradual decline in temperatures.Various monastery festivals are held in this time. Max temp: 5 degrees, Min temp: -11 degrees. Hope this helps. :)
You can not do the complete circuit and also you wont be able to reach many places because of road closure. The best month would be September. But you can make a trip anytime between June to Mid Oct once the roads from Manali and Srinagar opens for public traffic.
