    Destination

    Ladakh, the land of high mountain passes, is also the land of extraordinary beauty. The Ladakhi terrain, flanked by the towering mountains of the Trans-Himalayan range, with snow-capped summits rising far beyond the clouds, is home to one of the most iconic motorbiking routes in the country. With scenic views of the landscape, painted in differing shades of grey and brown, you'll explore faraway villages and secluded landmarks in the region on a 9-day motorbiking itinerary.

    Your adventure begins in Leh, the largest city of Ladakh. After exploring the city, you'll travel to the sand dunes of the Nubra Valley and spend a night by the famous Pangong Lake. A highlight of this itinerary, you'll also visit the distant village of Hanle and the multi-coloured Tso Moriri. Riding via the historic town of Kargil, you'll travel to the state capital of Srinagar, ending the tour with unforgettable experiences.
