Hi All.

I have a question you probably can answer...I want to do a trip around the north of India, along the passes. It will not be this year but can you clarify the best time to do this...you are going june, july. They are better than august?

The passes are frozen most of the year, the only window to ride there is from June to September.
The passes open sometime in early to mid June.
If you go early in the season, i.e June and July, the snow will still be melting and you will find a lot of water crossings, which is fun. You may also find occasional landslides. On the flip-side you will also find a lot of tourist traffic. I personally enjoy going at this time since its a little more challenging.

August and September is a good time to go if you want to avoid the tourist traffic and the water/snow. The whole place is much more relaxed during this time.

So take your pick.

Cheers
