  • Trip introduction

    This Ladakh motorbiking trip takes you from the green valleys of Manali, through the stark and dramatic landscapes of Leh on one of the most iconic motorbiking routes in India. You'll ride with an experienced road captain and a mechanic, alongside a group of like-minded bikers. 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 and barren mountains. 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.

    Please note that an additional refundable, security deposit of INR 7,000 per motorbike, not included in the cost displayed, is to be paid directly to the tour operator before start of the Ladakh motorbiking trip.

    Destination

    The adventure begins as you get your motorbikes in Manali and thunder past forests and orchards of Himachal Pradesh. As you cross state lines into Jammu and Kashmir, you'll notice the greenery clearing away, giving way to the brown mountains and grey sand dunes of Ladakh. Soon, you'll find yourself in the cold deserts of Nubra Valley where double-humped camels wander, and camping by the famous Pangong Lake, where the water changes shades every hour.
