Leh in keywords, those would be - Mountains, Blue skies, Army, Stupas, Buddhism, Monasteries, Tibet, Art markets, Gompas, Indus and Capricious climate. The city of Leh has only two terrestrial approaches: Manali-Leh highway and Leh-Srinagar highway, both of which are seasonal, they're closed during winter. Leh is served by Kushok Bakula Rimpochee airport (code: IXL), located in the Spituk village on the outskirts. It's both a military as well as a commercial airport. Jet airways and Indian Airlines have flights from New Delhi. Leh is literally cut off from the rest of the world, if the weather Gods decides to be violent. The climate of Leh is as capricious as the wind, the day can get sunny and hot and in next few hours, you can be shivering in cold. The city looks extremely beautiful when it's sunny due to clear blue skies and artistic cloud formations, takes a gloomy outlook when it's cold and cloud covered. The locals have the habit of predicting the weather looking at the mountain tops. Looking at the cloud cover on Khardungla a certain guy told us, "It's snowing there and roads can be slippery. Don't go today." But then his words may be true for just a period of time and you repent for not going when you see Khardungla side clearing within next couple of hours. Since the Leh city lies at a very high altitude (3500m), the clouds are relatively closer to the earth and they cast shadows on mountains which forms great texture for the photographs. Also beware of altitude sickness due to oxygen depletion, avoid unnecessary physical strains.
