A backpacker paradise rapidly going mainstream. Check it off your bucket list before it goes the manali/kasol way. Summers are cool and there is a party undercurrent throughout the town. Hire bikes or rent cabs and road trip across this arid paradise, expole the highest morotable roads and pristine crystal clear lakes while indulging in some amazing continental cuisines and mingling with fellow backpackers in Leh town in the evenings.
Winters are harsh with a perpetual thick layer of snow.
