Ladakh Travel Information

What to Pack

Even in summer, shady areas are substantially colder and evenings get chilly. Get enough protective clothing, good quality walking shoes, light to medium sturdy boots if any trekking is planned. For visitors coming in late, when the weather is colder, thermal inner wear is absolutely necessary. Wear atleast two sets of woollen socks and gloves at a time to guard against chilblains. In the winters when layers of woollens provide the best protection, sweaters, jackets and overcoats or parkas/anoraks are required, so pack them in. A first aid kit with some Vitamin C and Aspirin tablets and other basic medication is a sensible precaution. The sun and UV radiation can cause in severe sunburn in the rarefied mountain climate, so carry protective sun-block, suntan lotion, lip salves, moisturisers, dark glasses and wide brimmed hats.
