Leh adventure ride is a dream comes true for the adventure and the nature lovers as Leh is an unmatched beauty with beautifully designed mountains, rivers, waterfalls and glaciers, designed by Tony Bike Centre creator. Paths to Leh are narrow, rough, high and dangerous but surely are full of excitement and real adventure. The tour adds glory, self-pride, and confidence in a rider. If Leh is achieved then you can accept any challenges in life. So now gear up for this wonderful and most challenging ride of your lifetime.
You will be accommodated on a twin or triple sharing bases in standard hotels / tents / camps with neat and tidy rooms and western washrooms. All tent accommodation will be in Swiss camps with attached western washrooms. Accommodation starts from day two at Chandigarh until night halt at Pathankot / Chandigarh.
Day one is a very important day as the group gets the briefing on the entire tour. 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.
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.
Early morning, you start the ride to Manali. Adventure ride starts from the road to Manali. You will see the huge Pando Dam on the way and will stop for a quick photo shoot.

Today you have to cross the Rohtang La with 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.

Riders must follow the health and the safety instructions of the tour leader. You will stay at Sarchu in tents.
Sarchu is the last town of Himachal Pradesh and after this, you enter the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This road is having many passes. The road is rough so the riders have to be very cautious. You will cross Nakeela Pass which is 15,547 feet and Lachulungla Pass which is 16,616 feet.

Tangste is the place from where The Karakoram Range of mountains start and the river Shayok flows along it. This area is exposed to direct ultraviolet sun rays. Then comes the Pangong Lake, the highest natural salt lake in Asia which is a real treat for your eyes. Its first look will make you speechless. It’s 160 kilometers long and has a turquoise color. One-third part of the lake is in India and the rest is in China.
You will stay in the tent accommodation along the lakeside at Spangmik Village in Pangong Tso. The color combination of this crystal clear lake with the surrounding mountains will pamper your eyes.

It’s a green valley with peach trees all over and sand dunes with double humped Siberian camels. You will stay at Nurba.
Today you will catch NH1 to reach Kargil. The initial road from Leh towards Kargil is excellent but as you proceed it comes back to its original rough form. You will stop at the Pathar Sahib Gurudwara to have ‘Prasad’ of tea and sweets. This Gurudwara is built and maintained by Indian Army. Alchi Monastery and Lamayaru Monastries are on the way. On the way, you will cross Fotula Pass which is 13,470 feet and Namkila Pass which is 12,198 feet.
You will visit Mulbek Village at Chamba having the first-century statue of Lord Buddha of Khushan Period engraved on a mountain. This village is the last village having the Hindu or Buddhist population after this area the entire population is Islamic. When you will cross these areas you will see and experience the change over from one culture to another.
Your first halt on this route will be the War Museum made in the memory of our brave Jawans who gave their life in Kargil war of 1999. You will pay your homage to them and will fill yourselves with pride to be in a country which has such brave people.
On the way to Srinagar, you will cross Drass, one of the second coldest inhabitant place of the world. Then comes the narrowest Zozila Pass which is 11,953 feet. To cross this patience and concentration is required or you can say that you will have to apply all your riding experience here. Crossing it, you will proceed towards Sonmarg and will start seeing the lush green mountains of Paradise on earth, Kashmir. After travelling through the dry mountains of Ladakh, seeing these green mountains will be a real relief to your eyes. You will stay at Srinagar hotel / houseboat.
In Vai Anantnag you will cross the 2,531 meters Long Jawahar Tunnel. If you are lucky enough, you will try to take some ‘Prasad’ from the langar pandals set up for the yataris of Amarnath. You will be moving on NH44 and will again come back to NH1 to proceed towards Pathankot.
Reaching Pathankot will make everyone go into the deep thoughts of asking yourself that have you really done this most adventurous and daring trip to Leh. You will stay in Pathankot hotel.
You will be on NH1 now but you are sure that you will be missing those bumpy and challenging roads. Most of the times riders ask Tony Bike Centre that now this highway is like this only, when will some good roads come. ‘Good’ here means those roads of Leh-Ladakh. These lines show that you are a complete rider now.
This tour will start and end in Delhi. Along the way, you will visit Chandigarh, Manali, Kelong / Jispa, Sarchu, Leh, Pangong, Leh, Khardung La, Nubra, Leh, Kargil, Srinagar, and Jammu / Pathankot.
