Our grading system explained
- Expedition Grade
Trekking in Sikkim is best between the months of March and May when it is dry and not too cold. Monsoon rains follow in the summer months from June to September, making it unsuitable for trekking during these months.
Another great time to trek in Sikkim is in October and November, as the skies are often clearer after the monsoon rains. However, the weather becomes extremely cold between December and March causing icy terrain, particularly at high altitude, making trekking unsuitable during these months.
Unlike Sikkim, the summer months in Ladakh are much drier, making this the perfect time to visit for anyone limited to holidays during the summer. In contrast, the winter in Ladakh is extremely cold making many trekking routes unavailable during this time.View our holidays here
