MOTORCYCLING TOURS INDIA / HIMALAYA
This motorcycle adventure allows you more time to focus on exploring & discovering Ladakh.
Through all our trips leading into and out of Leh, we realised that both, the approach from Manali and from Srinagar, takes quite a toll on the rider as well as consuming several days.
This itinerary has been devised to give you a, ”Maximum Leh” experience. This version of the ride focuses on the high altitude lakes found in this region. Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri and Tso Kar. All located at an altitude of 4000 M+ this trip is one of the more extreme circuits in the Himalayas. However its one of the most rewarding circuits. Remote settings and temporary settlements give a whole new definition to ,’REMOTE’ and untouched. Tso Moriri will enchant you in its remoteness. The mineral lake of Tso Kar is a paradise for bird watchers. This circuit also allows you to ride in the More plains and approach Leh from the classic Manali – Leh highway.

We get on our bikes and do an exploratory circuit of the sigths around Leh. We will cover easy terrain and will encounter some traffic but the ride is fairly relaxed and filled with stops.
Todays ride takes you across, Khardung La at 5348 M (18400 ft). We cross into the stunning Nubra valley and ride to the sand dunes of Hundr after a stop over at Diskit Gompa.
We ride through the Shyok valley (if Wari La is open) and cross back into Leh via another spectacular road in these regions. This is a relatively unexplored part of Ladakh and thereby more special.
The ride to the iconic Pangong Lake takes you across Chang la (another 5000 M pass). The surreal beauty of this region and the colors of the lake, from its first view to the ride along its shores will leave you amazed.
We return to Leh on the same roads as the previous day. We break journey at a special spot and have a picnic lunch.An interesting ride becaus eo the ability to see it all again, but from a different perspective.
We only have 1 planned activity which takes you on rafting expedition on the Zanskar. Part of the day is yours-to spend in your own style and at your convenience.
We return along, now familiar roads, before we leave the highway and divert towards Tso Moriri. Another remote region of Ladakh, the transition in colors and texture and the extreme remoteness of the region redefine remote.
We wake up for an early breakfast overlooking the deep blue Tso Moriri lake. We ride along empty spaces to break for lunch at Tso Kar and cross over Tanglang La and the home stretch to Leh.
“I traveled with friends for this adventure,. It was my first time ever in India and I must admit that it was one of the best decisions to experience the Himalayas on a Royal Enfield. I really liked the food and the interaction with the local people.”
– Micheal Wieldt- 2015
We were a group of 5 travelers from France.The trip was customized for us but we had the opportunity to interact with other bikers who were on different Karma Yatri tours. From the time we were received at Chandigarh by Shawn, we had the most memorable experience. We look forward to traveling with Karma Yatri again”
– Pascal Ducasse and friends-2016
“I traveled with Karma Yatri during their first year and was super impressed by the passion with which the team approached the execution of teh tour. I have followed their growth over the subsequent years and I feel a sense of pride in their success.”
– Sudhir Chandran – 2011
