Ladakh is well known for its astonishing landscape and high mountain passes, and this is exactly what a motorbike adventure in Ladakh presents you with. From riding on the highest motorable roads in the world, to the martian landscape in the valleys, Ladakh offers an experience unmatched by any other destination in India. A road trip to Ladakh is full of ups and downs and one gets to experience a unique culture that has prevailed over centuries. 

 

Generally, a legitimate biking trip to Ladakh takes a minimum of 10-11 days to complete but due to the rapid development in the tourism infrastructure over the last decade, flying directly to Leh has become a widely used gateway to enter the remotely located region. Flying in and out of Leh means one can explore the region in just a span of 5-6 days, which is not possible if one rides to Leh from Manali or Srinagar. During the 6 day Motorbike Adventure in ladakh, we are going to cover places such as Nubra Valley, Khardung La and Pangong Lake.

Detailed Itinerary:

Day 01: Arrival in Leh(3500m)

After arriving in Leh, report at the hotel and meet the Adventure Natio team. Today is going to be an uneventful day as you are not supposed to venture out in the town, and just relax in the hotel. Flying directly to Leh from any city in India means you are going from a city in the plains to a high altitude place in just a span of a couple of hours which poses a risk of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) . Due to lack of vegetation, the oxygen level in Leh is extremely low and that’s why it is recommended to at least spend one day getting acclimatized. Drinking at least 3-4 litres of water is very important along with taking proper rest. Spend time in getting acquainted with the other travellers. Stay overnight.

Day 02: Leh Exploration

Motorbike Allocation, Leh Exploration

Replenish your energies with a healthy breakfast and get ready to get your hands on the bike. After getting acquainted with the bike, go out and explore the biggest town in Ladakh at your liberty. Stop by the Leh Palace and enjoy the splendid panoramic views of the Stok Kangri mountain range from the terrace. You may also choose to visit places such as the Patharsahib Gurudwara, Magnetic Hill and Shanti Stupa etc. Later in the day explore the local market while indulging in some shopping and trying out the Ladakhi cuisine at the local eateries. Overnight stay at the hotel.

Day 03: Leh to Nubra (3048m) | 160km    

Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 7 Hours
Altitude Loss - 452m
Highlights - Khardung La, Diskit Monastery

After a rather relaxed day in Leh, we continue our expedition and start riding towards Nubra Valley through what’s considered the highest motorable road in the world i.e. Khardung La(5359m). The road towards the pass is well paved and tarred till the checkpoint near South Pullu and after crossing the checkpoint, the road starts to get slushy with loose rocks on one side. Get yourself clicked after reaching Khardung La and hit the road quickly as it is not safe to spend much time on top of the pass due to the high altitude and thin air. We stop for a quick lunch after climbing down from the pass and then continue our journey. After riding for another couple of hours, we make a brief stop to visit the 32m high Maitreya Buddha statue in Diskit Monastery. Our arrival in the valley will be welcomed by the white sand dunes and the sightings of the double-hump Bactrian camels grazing. Stay overnight at the hotel/campsite.

Day 04: Nubra to Pangong(4250m) | 260km    

Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 8 Hours
Altitude Gain -1202m
Highlights - Riding along Shyok River, Water Crossings 

After having breakfast, we start riding towards the most photographed destination in Ladakh, Pangong Lake. Despite the fact that we are not going to cross any high pass today, the ride should be quite interesting as we ride on the much less travelled road via Shyok. Most of our ride is going to be along the beautiful Shyok River and through the villages like Agham, Shyok, Durbuk and Tangste. The road remains slushy along with some exciting water crossings and rocky terrain so being cautious is important. After crossing Durbuk, the last stretch of the ride is going to be along the lake. From the very first glimpse, the lake leaves an everlasting impression on the visitors. Get yourself photographed and just admire the wonder that is this shimmering blue lake. Overnight stay in tents. 

Day 05: Pangong to Leh(3500m) | 150km    

Grade/Duration - Moderate/Approx. 5 Hours
Altitude Loss - 750m
Highlights - Chang La, Druk White Lotus School

Wake up to an enchanting sunrise over Pangong Tso and recommence your Ladakh expedition. Today we are going to ride the same route that we rode yesterday and after crossing Durbuk, we will start climbing the third highest motorable pass in the world, Chang La(5360m). After crossing Chang La, we halt for Lunch. After eating, we start our journey to Lah via Karu from where we start riding on the Manali-Leh Highway. Just before reaching Leh, we are going to pass through the Thiksey monastery and the popular Druk White Lotus School. There will be a short halt to explore the monastery and take some pictures. After riding for approximately an hour, we will arrive in Leh for the second time during the expedition. Stay overnight in a hotel.

Day 06: Departure from Leh 
Today marks the last day of this motorcycling adventure. Have a relaxed breakfast with your fellow riders in the hotel and get on with your journey back home.

Trip Ends.
