Ladakh Motorcycle Tour … the Beacon of Adventure

March 10, 2016

When the mundane becomes too much to handle, when routines get boring, when life becomes predictable … do the unthinkable … get set to bring the zing back in life by donning the garb of the adventure spirit. Our Ladakh Motorcycle Tour packs the right mix of adventure and relaxation to rejuvenate both body and soul. Motorcycle Tours to Ladakh

Our Ladakh Motorcycle tours lead you through the deep canyons and valleys on one side as the mighty snowcapped Himalayas rise to dizzying heights on the other. Scaling some of the highest passes in these parts as you ride among the clouds is an experience beyond compare.

Imagine cruising in the wee hours of the morning with birds chirping away as the sun prepares to peep out of the mountainous terrains of Himalayas, your lungs filling up with the fresh air around you as the valleys reverberate with the thump of your bikes. Our Motorcycle Tour to Ladakh is a promise to transport you into the surreal world of heavenly beauty.

Itinerary of the Tour … a Gist

Our 15 days 14 nights tour takes off from Delhi and leads you straight into Manali, a major tourist attraction which is a perfect blend of sights, scenes and shopping. You get a feel of our robust bikes here, in readiness for our ride into the wilderness to Jispa, a quaint little village, the next morning. Sarchu is our next destination, which promises a ride among the clouds and as you enjoy the mesmerizing surroundings delving in the mystery around you, our tented accommodation provide you the perfect vantage point to rest your tired backs.

The ride next morning to Leh is a long stretch, but has a lot packed into it. You get to cross over two of the highest passes of the terrain as you let the beauty of the Buddhist culture sink in. The locals are a happy lot and their smiles as they share their culture are enchanting. Day six brings with it a promise of witnessing the jewel of Ladakh, the Pangong Lake, which is a sight of beauty to the sore eyes. As you park your glistening bikes, you get to witness the golden sunset. The sunrise, the next morning with the sunrays reflecting from the minerals on the mountains is a sight to behold, one you will cherish lifelong. Motorcycle Tours to Ladakh

A ride back to Leh is just as mesmerizing with sightings of wildlife and coffee breaks to refuel. The next three days are rides back and forth from Leh to Nubra valley and Lac Moriri from where we head out to Sarchu. Crossing the highest pass to arrive at the Nubra Valley is very rewarding as you feel on top of the world and one that offers a lot of photo opportunities. Visit to temples on the way is an added plus for getting a firsthand experience of the Buddhist architecture.

Riding to Lac Moriri and onwards to Sarchu after a night halt in the luxurious tents in the lap of nature with the night sounds of the wilderness around you can be the most thrilling experience. As you ride the next morning on your tough bikes towards Sissu, a small village nestled in the Himalayas, with cascading waterfalls, crossing landscapes and making memories on the way you would be wishing for more.

The last lap of riding these sturdy and royal bikes is between Sissu and Manali where our journey culminates before heading to Delhi the next day.

This adventurous ride through the most beautiful terrain of north India will have you coming for more every time you’ll seek a combination of thrill and beauty.
