Program

This is a challenging tour. Solid riding skills, a sense of adventure, and flexibility are a must when taking part in the Himalayan expeditions, which cover around 2,000 kilometers and considerable altitude differences. Road conditions vary from freshly paved to rough tracks. This tour is a mystical “river journey” to wild Zanskar valley, hidden in the remotest reaches of the Himalayas.

After crossing rocky valleys and passes to the mouth of the Suru River near Kargil, there is the gateway to Zanskar valley. The route takes you up the wild, rugged valley on a steady climb to Pansi La pass (4,400 meters), the only road into Zanskar. You’ll be passing enormous glaciers on your way into the valley. You’ll slowly work your way up the rough tracks to your destination in Padum.

After exploring Zanskar, get to know the highlights of the Indus Valley. Last but not least, enjoy the ultimate high point, one that can also be measured in terms of altitude, the Khardung La, the highest pass in the world at 5,605 meters. This is the first tour to take on 14 extremely high Himalayan passes.

You’ll be hitting altitudes of over 5,000 meters five times and tackling the two highest passes in the world. The route covers all of the highlights of the ancient Buddhist Kingdom of Ladakh as well as the three most beautiful Himalayan lakes in the border region to Tibet, all at altitudes of more than 4,500 meters. You’ll spend 13 days on the road in Ladakh.
