If you don’t like the weather in the Himalayas just wait for a few hours and it will change. The Himalayas are so high that they make their own weather, it can be bright and sunny and in a few hours it may get cloudy and cold.

It is very difficult predict the weather so you have to be prepared for it, in day time it can be bright and sunny and as the sun goes down the temperatures plummets in the higher mountains.

Ladakh is a high altitude area many visitors from low-altitude areas may suffer from altitude sickness. Most people suffer minor effects of altitude sickness only, which include headache, loss of appetite, and a tendency to have no energy until their bodies adjust to the high terrain. This adjustment can take anywhere from a few hours, and in rare cases, a few days. If visitors do some simple preparations before going to any high altitude area, most of the symptoms of altitude sickness can be avoided. Being healthy and in good shape before you arrive in Mustang will help greatly. It is also recommended that you talk to your local physician about AMS pills to help combat altitude sickness.
