Tour Details

Ladakh is a region administered by India as a union territory, and constituting a part of the larger region of Kashmir, which has been the subject of dispute between India, Pakistan, and China since 1947.[8][9] It is bordered by Tibet to the east, the Indian state of Himachal Pradesh to the south, Jammu and Kashmir and Gilgit-Baltistan to the west, and the southwest corner of Xinjiang across the Karakoram Pass in the far north. It extends from the Siachen Glacier in the Karakoram range to the north to the main Great Himalayas to the south.[10][11] The eastern end of Ladakh, consisting of the uninhabited Aksai Chin plains, has been under Chinese control since 1962.[12][13] Until 2019, Ladakh was a region of the state of Jammu and Kashmir. In August 2019, the Parliament of India passed an act by which Ladakh became a union territory on 31 October 2019.[14]

In the past Ladakh gained importance from its strategic location at the crossroads of important trade routes,[15] but since the Chinese authorities closed the borders with Tibet and Central Asia in the 1960s, international trade has dwindled except for tourism. Since 1974, the Government of India has successfully encouraged tourism in Ladakh. Since Ladakh is a part of the strategically important Kashmir region, the Indian military maintains a strong presence in the region.

The largest town in Ladakh is Leh, followed by Kargil, each of which headquarters a district.[16] The Leh district contains the Indus, Shyok and Nubra river valleys. The Kargil district contains the Suru, Dras and Zanskar river valleys. The main populated regions are the river valleys, but the mountain slopes also support the pastoral Changpa nomads.  Ladakh is one of the most sparsely populated regions in India and its culture and history are closely related to that of Tibet. It is renowned for its remote mountain beauty and culture.

Itinerary

Day 1Arrival in Leh

On your first day of the tour, you will have the chance to take it easy and become acclimatised to the altitude and cold climate of this beautiful mountain town. You will spend your day resting and rejuvenating before the challenging ride begins through the hilly terrain of the region. Spend the day relaxing under the open blue skies, enjoying the breeze and the amazing scenery.

Day 2Exploring Leh

Step out of the hotel today and give your body a mild work out to prepare for the long ride ahead. We will start the day with a short ride to the Shanti Stupa from where you will get a bird’s eye view of the town. The Shanti Stupa is a white Buddhist dome that was built by Japanese and Ladakhi Buddhists in 1991. This place is frequented by tourists due to its religious significance and the lovely panoramic view. You will then ride along further and take a slightly longer route that goes around Leh town and hits the Leh – Khardung La highway. From there, we will cycle back to town for lunch. Once we’ve had our fill, we will ride back to the hotel and take it easy for the rest of the day.

Day 3Leh - in and around

Today, you will embark on your first long ride of the tour. We will cover around 50 kilometres during the day, as we ride from Leh to Gurdwara Pathar Sahib and head back to Leh. During the ride, you’ll cross the Magnetic Hill, where you feel like you are defying the laws of gravity. We’ll also pass the confluence of the Indus and Zanskar rivers, and the beautiful moonscape of Ladakh. At the gurdwara, you’ll enjoy piping hot tea and langar before cycling back to Leh. The ride today is all on the tarmac, so you’ll enjoy smooth cruising!

Day 4Leh - Sakti

It’s another easy ride day for us. You’ll start from Leh and ride towards Pangong Tso Lake. Your first night halt during this Leh – Pangong Tso riding section is at a village called Sakti. You will arrive at Sakti by lunch time and enjoy a simple locally cooked meal. In the afternoon and evening, you’re free to relax or walk around the village to explore.

Day 5Sakti - Tangtse

Be prepared for a ride that will challenge every morsel of your being. We are going to crawl up the mighty Chang La Pass, which sits at an elevation of 5,360 metres, making this a very difficult climb. Expect to crawl up at an average speed of 5 kilometres per hour, which means that the ride uphill will take about 6 hours. After the pass, there is a bone-jarring downhill trail on probably one of the worst stretches on this road and in the world! Once this terrible stretch is over, you’ll ride on a spectacularly beautiful road with scenery straight out of a fairy tale. This downhill road will take us all the way down to a village called Tangtse, where we will be spending the night.

Day 6Tangtse - Pangong

Today is the day we reach Pangong Tso Lake, probably the most picturesque and tranquil location on our entire journey. Our ride today is a fairly easy one compared to yesterday’s challenge, and even though the latter part of our journey is uphill, the views when we reach the lake are definitely worth it. After we spend a few moments in quiet amazement at the beauty around us, we’ll check in to the campsite near the lake.

Day 7Pangong - Leh

Wake up and enjoy spending some time around the lovely Pangong Tso Lake, which spans from India to China and sits at an elevation of 4,350 metres. We may even spot wildlife native to this mountainous region, including birds and adorable marmots! After soaking in the beauty of Pangong Tso, you’ll get into the support vehicles for your drive back to Leh. On the way, we’ll make a stop at the Thiksey or Hemis Monastery.

Day 8Departure

After breakfast, check out from the hotel and transfer to the airport for your onward flight
