Ladakh-Leh to Leh Ride


Enveloped by the barren mountains with an icing of crystal clear snow, lies the white sand beneath our feet, rivers chiseling out the valleys, colourful prayer flags soaring to reach the dizzying heights, small flat white houses and prismatic monasteries. As we unwrap Leh-Ladakh, the boundless sheet of blue sky, translucent white water, crimson robed monks, patches of green vegetation and paleness of the deserted land aptly symbolises each colour of the Tibetan flags mantra: “Om Ma Ni Padme Hum”.

Who wouldn’t relate to the widely acclaimed movie: 3 idiots? Cruising through valleys and mountains, there at the lake, ‘Silencer; a.k.a Chatur’ bowed to acknowledge Aamir Khan. If only that ‘taufa’ was not for Aamir but the stunning beauty of the place holding the highest salt water lake, highest motor able roads, plentiful monasteries, diverse culture and unmatched challenges and fun it offers. The exquisiteness of Leh-Ladakh pulls not only filmmakers but many riders to jaunt through the rugged and dirt trails to soak in the picturesque poster painted by the nature itself.

With a touch of spirituality and unmatched beauty, Leh-Ladakh is no less than a magical land too. With a place called Magnetic Hill which defies the gravitational force holds for a remarkable experience when we see car climbing up instead of rolling down. With extreme climatic conditions and living away from urbanisation, Leh-Ladakh was and continues to be favoured by traders marking the legacy of The Silk Route. Not only merchants, Leh holds brilliant minds too. Don’t we all remember kids shaving off the sheep and grinding wheat to flour by paddling of cycle in Phunsuk Wangdu School of 3-idiot? That is a school run by Sonam Wangchuk, the real life Wangdu in Leh.

Who wouldn’t want to live the amalgamation of scenery, science, business, magic and unearthliness? So prepare the gears, don the leather jacket, a handy camera and a bullet to ride on; here we hit the road from Delhi to explore the forbidden cold desert: Leh-Ladakh. Let’s soak in mother earth and various shades of it!


Day 1: Arrive Leh

This day, all riders will report to LEH. We will allot bikes and will brief you about the complete plan.


Day 2: Leh local sightseeing

We are finally in the town which we can brag about later. The markets, the houses, the food, the people, the monasteries, the palace and Leh in whole will force you to stay there and sulk in its charm. If we can term just gazing at the elegance with which Shanti Stupa stands tall above the town as meditation, you are sure to be enlightened then. We get to see the spectacular view of Ladakh valley from the Leh palace. One can also pay homage to the warriors who lost their lives in Indo-Pak war by visiting Hall of Fame museum. Leh isn’t a widely spread town, yet it offers various sights to see each giving a unique experience. To hear monks chant the prayers, light the butter lamp and encounter all new culture, one can visit the Thiksey Monastery. For some amazing life hacks and ease of living, one can learn new tricks and techniques from kids in 3-Idiot School. Do try out some local cuisines and shop hunt. Relax with a sip of butter tea by the side and conclude the day.


Day 3: Leh to Nubra

We embark our journey to Khardung La pass, the highest motor able road at 18,380ft. There are no words to describe the feel of being ‘On top of the World’ in literal sense. The pass has its own way of welcoming its visitors. From Tibetan flags waving us from far of distant to pampering us in the lap of the mountain, it soothes us to the core. We continue our way to Nubra valley. The true meaning of cold desert is witnessed here. A widespread of stunning silver sand dunes of Hunder and double humped camels breaks the monastic and scenic approach to Leh-Ladakh. Nubra has another advantage to it of being the third glacier of Siachen. This is the closest we can get to the Siachen glacier where our defence men safeguard us at -50 degree Celsius temperature round the year.


Day 4: Nubra to Pangong

After the nightstay at Nubra we head back to via Shyok River. Enroute we will explore villages like Shyok and Agam which are no less than a heaven. We will reach Pangong Tso by evening. Since the time anyone has seen the Pangong Lake either in movies or through pictures, its aura has pulled people towards it from far - far off places. People fall short of words in describing the charisma of this lake. No wonder claiming for lake caused subtle disputes between India and China in the year 2017. Serenity of the place, tall mountains standing behind the lake and sky reflecting water makes it a compulsion for everyone to spend a night here under the stars.


Day 5: Pangong to Leh

From here we start our return journey. Changthang valley on the route will leave you spell bound. It’s not only rich with great lakes (Pangong being one of them) and vast highlands but hides in them rare wildlife species. Black necked cranes, seagulls, blue sheep and Kyangs being few of them makes this valley a wildlife sanctuary. As we move ahead we are nothing but nostalgic as we had raced through the same path a day before. On reaching Leh we sign off for the day.


Day 6: Leh to Kargil

Today after the breakfast, we will start our ride towards the town of Kargil. This days ride will be very relaxed as the perfect Black Top roads with some of the best views of Ladakh will mesmerize you all the way. Enroute Kargil we will pass across the famous Magnetic Hill, where you can experience the gravity defying phenomenon. The ride today will be along the Indus river and at Alchi, we will witness the confluence of Indus and Zanskar rivers. As we continue our ride towards Kargil, we will pass across the beautiful Hamlet Lamayuru, also known as The Moonland. By thevening we will arrive at Kargil.


Day 7: Kargil to Leh

Today after breakfast, we will head towards the Second Coldest Inhabited Place of Earth, the town of Drass. We will visit the Kargil War Memorial and pay Homage to our Martyred Soldiers. The ride from Kargil to Drass is a quick smooth ride all along the river with lush green surroundings. After a quick visit to War Memorial, we will head back for Leh.
