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 travelling to.

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 HUNDER

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 towards Nubra Valley.

HUNDER TO PANGONG TSO LAKE

HUNDER TO PANGONG TSO LAKE

Today you ride on one of the remotest route of Ladakh made especially for the Indian Army, which connects Nubra Valley to Pangong Lake 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. You stay on the banks of the beautiful Pangong Tso.

Leh to Sarchu

Leh to Sarchu

Undoubtedly the best stretch on the Manali-­Leh highway, you will feel as if you're on a roller coaster ride climbing up and down from one Himalayan pass to another. You ride up and down three high altitude passes - Taglang La (the second-highest motorable pass at 17,480 feet), Lachlung­ La (16,616 feet) and Nakee ­La (15,547 feet). To add to that is a spectacular section of 21 switchbacks called Gata loops. All this through one of the most spectacular landscapes on Earth. Since Sarchu is snowbound for most of the year, there are no permanent structures here so you stay in Swiss tents with attached toilets.

Sarchu to Keylong

Today's ride is where you are amazed by the passing landscapes, small lakes, rivers and one high altitude pass, Baralach La at 16,500 feet.

Keylong is the main town on the Manali­-Leh highway and here you spend the night at a hotel.

Keylong to Manali

Today the landscapes change from barren to lush green Himalayan mountains and waterfalls that seemingly appear out of nowhere. Your riding skills are tested again on the climb to the 13,051 feet high Rohtang pass. The descent from the pass is one of the most beautiful rides, taking you into the picturesque hill station of Manali. Here you complete the ride of your life. We will have few rooms at our Manali hotel for you to freshen up before you take the late evening bus to Delhi.
