Program

Arrival Day

Orientation day is a very important day as the group gets the briefing on the entire tour. Bike test rides from 11:00 onwards and orientation at 18:00. The riders are introduced to each other and are open to asking any of the queries to the tour leader. Do’s and don’ts are not to missed by anyone as the tour which you have chosen is not a visit to a hill station. It’s Leh and it’s different. Overnight stay at a hotel in Delhi.

Day 1: New Delhi to Chandigarh, 238 kilometers / 148 miles

The mechanic will give a brief introduction about the Royal Enfield bike followed by a brief orientation given by the tour leader for those who were not there on the previous day. The tour takes off to Chandigarh crossing the beautiful fields on either side of NH1. Breakfast halt will be on a roadside dhaba and that will be the first feel of the countryside.

Evening is free so if, one wishes can ride to the Stone Garden or can have a nice long rest to start fresh early next morning. You will stay at Chandigarh hotel.

Day 2: Chandigarh to Manali, 340 kilometers / 211 miles

If reached on time, bikes will be checked.

Day 3: Manali to Jispa, 120 kilometers / 75 miles

  • Altitude: 3,878 meters above sea level

This route will make you feel the heights of snow white covered Rohtang La and then the green field of Kelong Valley.

  • Altitude: 4,000 meters above sea level / 13,850 feet above sea level

The tour starts very early in the morning. One crosses Baralacha La which is 4,830 meters above sea level. The green fields of Keylong and Jispa are also a treat to the eyes. This ride and this night stay is the most crucial stay of the entire tour. The reason is that this night halt is at a place of the highest altitude in the tour where you have to stay at night. Riders must follow the health and the safety instructions of the tour leader. You will stay at Sarchu in tents.

Day 5: Sarchu to Leh, 230 kilometers / 143 miles

If you are lucky enough then far away from the main road you can see the nomads of Leh-Ladakh with their flocks of sheep, famous for pashmina wool. If on time then you can visit Thiskey Monastry which is on the way to Leh. You will stay at Leh hotel / tents.

You can take as many photos as you can with the historical board behind you saying ‘you are at the highest motorable road in the world’. Once you cross Khardung La, you enter the Nubra Valley. It’s a green valley with peach trees all over & sand dunes with double humped Siberian camels.
