Ride of My Life

This seven day motorcycle tour to Ladakh has been kept short on purpose. The tour is designed for those who cannot take more than a week away from work and are not looking for hardcore motorcycle adventure. The tour covers some of the best Ladakh has to offer. It not only covers the pristine Pangong Tso lake, but also Khardung La, the highest motorable pass in the world and also Chang La, the 3rd highest motorable pass. The tour is designed in a way that you get properly acclimatised to the high altitude region of Ladakh.

Arrive in Leh

Arrive in Leh

Leh is at an altitude of 11,500 feet. Due to the rarified atmosphere at that altitude, it is of utmost importance that you rest all of this day to avoid the onset of Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS). Your body needs one day's rest to get used to the thin mountain air. We use this day to give you a detailed brief of the whole ride and information on the places you will be traveling to.

Riding practice in Leh

Riding practice in Leh

After a day's rest, it's time for you to start the ride of your life. But before that, we take you out for a spin so you may get used to riding the Royal Enfield bike on different terrains. The ride will be on smooth tarmac and on dirt tracks to give you a feel of the Himalayan adventure in store for you. This ride will ensure that you get used to riding a Royal Enfield motorcycle and if you need any adjustments, the mechanics can do the same.

LEH TO PANGONG TSO LAKE

LEH TO PANGONG TSO LAKE

Today you ride through the third-highest motorable pass in the world, Chang La, at 17,586 feet. After the descent from Chang La, the magical plains of Changthang open up. But the real treat is the 135 km long Pangong Tso lake on the India- China border. You have ample time this day to enjoy the ever-changing colors of this high altitude saline lake.

PANGONG TSO LAKE TO HUNDER

PANGONG TSO LAKE TO HUNDER

Today we ride on one of the remotest route of Ladakh made especially for the Indian Army, which connects Pangong lake to Nubra Valley bypassing Leh. This route was washed away in a cloud burst in 2010. Parts of it are still not rebuilt. With various stream crossings, riding on dry riverbeds, smooth tarmac and switchbacks, it truly is a religious experience for an adventure rider.

HUNDER TO PANAMIK TO SUMOOR

HUNDER TO PANAMIK TO SUMOOR

Rather than riding to Turtuk which is a retrace ride on the same route for 190 kilometers, we take a different axis of Nubra Valley towards Siachen base camp and stop at Panamik hot springs. The sulphur hot spring here is famous for its medicinal quality to relieve muscle and joint pain. Ideal place to visit after a bumpy ride of the past few days. After spending time at Panamik, we ride to Sumoor. A lesser known place in Nubra. The evening is spent at the less crowded Sumoor sand dunes. A Camel safari on double hump back camels if you wish, followed by campfire at the hotel.

SUMOOR TO LEH

SUMOOR TO LEH

Today, you take the road to the highest motorable pass in the world - Khardung La - at 18,380 feet. In spite of the altitude, today you ride on some of the smoothest roads so far and the landscape also becomes grand. After a steep and tough ascend and celebrations at Khardung La pass, you descend back towards Leh.
