The Grand Ladakh

Wonders of South India

The Grand Ladakh – 12 Days

3 High Passes, 3 Lakes & Ancient Culture

Ladakh is a beautiful region and located at a height of 10,000 feet. It is a largely Buddhist-dominated area, and it is also called Little Tibet. Ladakh is popularly known as the Land of High Passes and attracts people for its rich Buddhist culture and lovely landscape. It was the crossroads of the ancient trade routes from South Asia, and until the end of the 19th century, mule trains carrying shawls and spices made the journey from Amritsar through Ladakh to Yarkand in China. Ladakh’s people are a mix of Tibetan and Indo-Aryan – it became part of independent India in 1948. Ladakh is a land of extremes; you can see snow-capped mountains and clear blue skies at the same time as arid dunes; azure blue lakes flow alongside some of the highest mountain peaks and road mix of rough and smooth, which makes it undoubtedly the most popular destination for motorcycle tours in India. The thought of a motorcycle ride to Ladakh is not for the faint-hearted, but with a bit of resilient nature and determination, one can easily conquer the ride through the mighty Himalayas, where the terrain is quite uneven; one must be prepared to face umpteen obstacles and challenges. This Adventurous Mighty High Himalayan Motorcycle tour is also known as a high-altitude motorcycle expedition Tour, as you will be staying overnight at a height of 3000 metres to 4600 metres. Of course, you will ride Royal Enfield 500cc Motorcycle to conquer the Highest Motorable road, Khardung-la Pass (17,582 FT), Changla Pass (17,560 FT), Tanglangla Pass (17,480 FT) and all three most popular and beautiful lakes like Pangong Lake, Tsomoriri Lake, and Tsokar Lake with experience of Double Hump Camel Ride in Sand Dunes of Nubra Valley. Riding on the Highest Motorable Road and other high passes in the Himalayas is a lifetime moment for every motorcyclist. We invite all thrill-seeker motorcycle enthusiasts to join our High Himalayan Motorcycle Adventure Tour on Legendary Royal Enfield 500cc Motorbike to test your skills.
