fully independent solo trekking

Dear seasoned travelers

I'm planning a solo trekking trip for About 9 days in ladakh, wanna start from Leh.

I've been reading up on the subject, seems like most people did this with an agent. Any one ever did it all solo? (Bring own tent etc ) and get food and water along the path (villages ) ?

Maximum freedom is my objective here.

Thanks for any advise, much appreciated

I love your idea! I'm about to do it too. Solo trekking is the best.

I'm wondering if November is a good time to go. Looking for relative good conditions but hardly meeting a soul on the path. Same like you.

Late October and onwards , higher than Leh , is when it starts to get uncomfortable trekking :
