Your flight from Delhi would be an early morning one. On this day when you arrive Leh by air you would witness one of the most beautiful sights of Leh valley amidst the spectacular Himalayan peaks. We shall receive you at airport and take you to your hotel. This day you take it easy - its 10,000 ft and you need to acclimatize to get used to low oxygen levels. So take this day at leisure. For non Indian tourists this day will be used for applying and processing of mandatory inner line permits. Your bikes would also arrive at your hotel and we could go out for a small trail ride. Otherwise just walk around the unique Leh market; no exertions today.
This is the day we have kept for a local tour of Leh region on a motorcycle. Another day to acclimatize as also cover some essential tourist spots - Leh palace, Shanti Stupa, Hall of Fame Museum, a Ride to Shey, Thikse, Stok Palace and Hemis monastery. It’s a good day to get used to your bike and the traffic conditions.
This day we ride to explore some very unique landscapes of Himalayan region. A scenic ride through some fine rocky faces to visit the Lamayuru Monastery and Moonland. On our way back we would visit Alchi and Likir Monasteries, the phenomenon of Magnetic hill and the scenic Bazgo plains. We ride back to hotel by evening. On this day you would be pretty comfortable with your Royal Enfield.
Fairly acclimatized and used to your iron horse, this is a landmark day. Today you would ride on to the World's highest motorable pass - Khardongla ( 18,380 ft) and cross into the beautiful Nubra valley through some deep gorges. We stay overnight in a typical high altitude Ladakh village. Witness the rustic lifestyle of people in these most rugged terrains of the World. What you ride today has been for thousands of years a caravan route that used to feed the Silk route through Karakoram pass.
We ride out after breakfast and explore the beautiful Nubra valley. The green hamlets nestled in the valley supporting life. The essential tourist spots we see today are the Hunder sand dunes; double humped bactrian camels and unique Diskit monastery. The bactrian camels are a wonderful remnants of the trading days. At noon we ride back to Leh, via Khardongla pass and check into your hotel.
This day we take on the third axis - a ride to Pangong Tso through some more high altitude passes beautiful grazing grounds and landscapes. By noon you would arrive at one the most spectacular vistas of your life - the Pangong Tso Lake. It has some of the most beautiful hues of blue, which you would ever see in your life. It’s a lake that extends deep into China with only one-third with India. And a night by the lakeside camp is an experience of lifetime.
Having done Pangong Tso - now it’s time to explore deeper into Ladakh. It’s a long day ride to another very beautiful and non touristy lake, the Tso Moriri - it’s a breeding ground for the rare black necked cranes. This lake is mesmerizing and yet another area in Ladakh not visited by many. We spend another night in the camp overlooking the Lake. The feel of these remote places and the life of people in these God forsaken lands will leave you spell bound.
With these few days in remote places, we return back to Leh via a different but very rugged route - we see another scenic Tsokar lake - which is now on the verge of vanishing. Today we stay the night at Leh hotel. This is the last day of your most rugged ride; spend some time in the market buying T shirts or souvenirs.
