Doesn't it start snowing towards the end of September in the upper Reaches of Ladakh and Uttarakhand? What about North Sikkim?

Typically, the first snow in Ladakh region happens in second week of October, although sometime sit has happened earlier also. However, after snowing for 1-2 days, there is no more snow for a few weeks and the snow melts away. Rohtang Pass is the best place to see snow at this time - Zoji La in the Srinagar side is not open to tourists. Does not snow in Uttarakand till November. No idea about North Sikkhim - possible that Tsango in East Sikkim and Yumthang area also get snow at the same time.

Snow, in september is a tall order, atleast in visitable places! But check if Kedarnath or Amarnath higher tops have it. Its also monsoon time on the hills of Himalayas so not a good propostion with landslides etc. This year in anycase snowfall was poor so chances are even dimmer.
