I hiked through the Indian Himalayas in July-August 2005. In Leh (3500m), daytime temperatures allowed for shorts and t-shirts, nighttime required a sweater or shell. In the mountains, especially above 4500m, daytime temperatures were only a few degrees C while nighttime required sweaters, possibly toques.
