THE EXPERIENCE:

This Ladakh Bike Tour comes from our need to experience freedom. Riding a bike with vast stretches of open lands, mountains, and natural beauty everywhere in the horizon is freedom! And Ladakh is such a beautiful, serene and peaceful place that within minutes you’ll forget about everything else and you’ll get imbibed into the spirit of Ladakh!

The word ‘Ladakh’ means ‘Land of Passes’. On the way from Manali to Leh, there are 5 high-altitude passes (Rohtang, Baralacha-la, Namik-la, Lachunga-la, Tanglang-La) offering spectacular view of the world’s highest routes between the snow clad mountain ranges of Ladakh and Zanskar. Once you reach Ladakh, this trip will take your across Khardungla pass – the hightest motorable pass in the world and Chang La pass – the 3rd highest motorable pass in the world. The passes don’t end here. Enroute Srinagar, you will cross the Zoji La pass and Namik La pass, passing some of the most beautiful places of Kashmir.

A bike trip to Ladakh is the most beautiful way of exploring the city. The bike ride will take you to through the highest motorable roads in the world and some amazing valleys, some beautiful rivers and some really quaint villages that give a glimpse into the local life of people there.
