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. Yes you will have to fly in and out of Leh but what this trip will give you in return, will be beyond compare. We focus on the Nubra valley and the remote region of Turtuk. Nubra valley will enchant you, physically crossing the (arguably) highest motorable road in the world coupled with the surreal vistas Hundar, Turtusk and Panamik. The Changthang has got to be the most enigmatic of landscapes in this region and if the ride to Pangong Tso does not do it for you, your picnic with Marmots surely will. A rafting trip on the Zanskar, and a final day visiting some historic sights around Leh which is a perfect end to your adventure.

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 village of Panamik and return to Tirith.
This part of Nubra valley has opened to tourism only recently and remains untouched in most parts. Its Balti culture is different from rest of Ladakh and interesting historical facts link this region to the Leh we know today.
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.
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.
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.
Our last day of this trip takes us on NH1 that runs along some amazing view points of the Indus river. We visit the historic Alchi monastery, make a brief stopover at Likir and take a back road to visit Bagso fort. Return to Leh for our farewell dinner.
“This was the first of many trips with Karma Yatri. I traveled with 2 other friends and experienced Ladakh under some unique circumstances. I have been on tip in Bhutan and the lower Himalayas since this trip. ”
