    I will visit Leh in November.
    I only found bare information about visiting Leh in November.
    Below are my questions. Please help me, thanks:)

    1.
    I plan to have 10days trekking from Lamayura to Stok kangri.
    I already ask some guides, they said though it's not best season to trek, but it's ok.
    However, I checked on the Internet and most information is extremely cold.
    Is that safe to trek in November? Did anyone who trek to Stok kangri can give me advice?

    2.
    Does bus station still open?
    I also plan to have Shem trek to prepare for 10days trekking.
    I plan to take bus to Likir and Temisgam.

    3.
    Dose the road from Leh to Pangong Tso open?
    Can I find opening camp/tent/hostel in Pangong Tso?

    4.
    If the trekking from Lamayura to Stok kangri is not advisable,
    please advise some place to visit in November.

    November is not really an ideal time to visit Ladakh and trek because of snowfall. Stok Kangri is the one of the highest summits approachable by trek in India and in winter, it is best advised to not go that way. That trek is done and suitable for summer. Yes the bus station will be open but the frequency of buses will be questionable. You may have to opt for a shared taxi or hitchhiking. The road to Pangong will be open except for occasional snowfall which may block Chang La temporarily.

    Hi, Vargis,

    Really thanks for your reply.
    I already booked the air ticket:)

    I still would like to try trekking.
    I am sure to take Shem village trekking and I want to have another 10 days trekking.
    Do you recommend anyone?

    Also can you recommend any local guide?
    The trekking price provided by the travel agency is quite high!
    Thanks!

    Ann

    Hi Ann - I would highly recommend the Sham Valley trek route. Take a look at the article below providing the details. I am sorry but I do not really have any contacts as such with local tour guides.
