    This Leh motorbiking trip takes you deep into the stark and dramatic landscapes of Ladakh, on one of the most iconic motorbiking routes in India. Alongside a group of like-minded bikers, you'll ride with an experienced road captain and mechanic. During the day, you'll see spectacular views of snow-capped mountains, ride across streams of melting glacier waters, and thunder through high-altitude roads that lead through pine forests. At night, you'll camp in comfortable tents or stay in hotels and drift into a relaxing sleep after a day spent outdoors.

    Please note that price displayed is the per person price for a booking for one motorbike rider and one pillion rider.

    Destination

    On this Ladakh motorbiking odyssey, you'll have three days of riding powerful 350 CC motorbikes through the dramatic terrain of barren and brown mountains. At Leh, you'll need a day of rest and acclimatisation, before you set off into the valley. You'll ride through high altitude passes like the Chang-La and Khardung-La, and into the cold deserts of Nubra Valley where the double-humped camels wander. You'll also visit the Pangong Lake, where you'll see the colours of the water change as the sun goes down.
