I would like to spend some time - around a month exploring the Leh district in North India.
Some friends advised me not to go, but they were there a long time ago (10 years or so). I have also seen more recent accounts on the Internet that it might not be a good idea to go there.
I am 34 well travelled man and plan to do some trekking around there if possible. In the first half I will be with a girl friend and the second alone. If camping is an option I would not mind it. Season is August - September.
Is it safe(r) to go now? Anyone been there recently?
