Terminating your journey at Khardung La and returning to Leh is not really worth the trouble. You can ideally spend time at Khardung La on the way to Nubra.

Hi, October will be bit cold specially in Pangong. But its still doable, make sure you carry enough warm cloths and warms with you. Leh and Nubra will be comparatively warm compared to Pangong. Since Oct is kinda Off season many of the camps and resorts will be closed so make sure you conform stay prior in pangong . Roads conditions will be good no issues. Regards

Leh and surrounds in October (4 Replies)
Hi all, We are flying into Leh second week of October, and plan to be there until the end of October. Ideally looking to do some exploring (in the quiet season) around the monastery's, and then we are hoping to travel over Khardung La to Nubra. Does anyone know what the weather is currently doing, or will be like in that time. Will we be able to travel to Pangong, and over the pass to Nubra? Many thanks in advance.

Pangong, Nubra will be accessible in October. But the camp accommodation in Pangong will be shut down by mid October. Both Chang La and Khardung La will be open in those days. After mid October, Ladakh goes back to its gloomy self. Since temperatures start dropping below 0°C on a lot more regular basis once again.
