Program

Day One: Leh - Arrival

Get acquainted with the Royal Enfields. Sightseeing, acclimatization.

Day Two: Leh - Lamayuru

This will be the first day on your Royal Enfield. You will drive to the famous Lamayuru Abbey. Ahead of us a beautiful route, full of views, mostly onto new asphalt. Spend the night at a guesthouse at Lamayuru.

Day Three: Lamayuru - Kargil via Dha

Today you will have the opportunity to cross the rarely visited Ladakh area: Dah Valley and Hannu. The people in this valley look quite different than the other inhabitants of Ladakh; they are of more Indo-European than Tibetan type. The area is also warmer and greener. Kargil, in turn, is a Muslim city. For a while, it feels like you move to another world. Rest for the night at a Kargil guesthouse.

Day Four: Kargil - Alchi

Today you return to the Buddhist world in its classic edition. You’ll find that the route is already partially familiar to you, but it looks different from the other side! Accommodation will be in a guesthouse.

Day Five: Alchi - Sakti

Enjoy the route via a picturesque road situated above the canyon of the Indus River back toward Leh. This time you will not enter the town, but you will go further through the beautiful valley of the Indus.

Along the way, you will see the palace - the seat of the first rulers of Ladakh, Shey, and the most impressive Buddhist monastery in the entire region, Thiksey. In 2016, it hosted the Dalai Lama himself. In the afternoon, you bid farewell to the main trail and turn into the valley towards Pangong Tso Lake. Accommodation is in a guesthouse.

Day Six: Sakti - Pangong Tso

The third highest, approved for traffic pass in the world, Chang La (5,360 meters), is awaiting you. From the pass, you go down the winding mountain road above one of the most beautiful lakes in the world: Pangong Tso. It is a lake bordering China and 60% of its surface belongs to China. Today you will partly drive on gravels. Accommodation is in a camp, in specially prepared tents.

Day Seven: Pangong Tso - Nubra Valley (Hunder) through Shyok River

Today is not an easy route, but an unforgettable one; enjoy a ride entirely along the Shyok River. The program does not involve any passes, but it will sometimes be "curvy" and on gravel.

Certainly, you are going to take a rest a break from altitudes, but it will be much warmer - it may even be boiling hot. If due to weather conditions (e.g. landslides) the road should be closed, you will go through the Wari La Pass. Accommodation is in a hotel.

Day Eight: Nubra Valley - Leh

By today you will already be enough accustomed to high altitudes. This is the perfect moment to take on the highest pass approved for traffic in the world, Khardung La (5,602 meters). Before you get to it, you will visit the world’s highest altitude desert. Volunteers can try their hand at sand dunes. The route includes partly gravel road. Accommodation is in a hotel.

Day Nine: Leh - Tso Kar Lake

Today, you cope with the second highest pass in the world: Taglang La (5,359 meters). After that, you go down on the picturesque plateau of More Plains (4,600 meters). In the last kilometers, an asphalt highway will turn into pleasant gravel, which will lead you to the salt Tso Kar Lake. Accommodation in specially prepared tents.

Day Ten: Tso Kar Lake - Tso Moriri

The Tso Moriri lake is a strict nature reserve. The emerald waters usually surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks look stunning. En route, you will be able to relax at a hot geyser and see the last Himalayan nomads. The road is 60% gravel. Accommodation will be in specially prepared tents.

Day Eleven: Tso Moriri Lake - Leh

A picturesque highway leads you back to Leh. You will pass and visit some hot springs.

This is the end of the holiday.
