Day 1: Manali

Once you check in at the Manali hotel, you can relax, order your lunch, and sleep after a night's journey. Day one is for bike checkup and test rides for the riders. Evening tea is the orientation meeting time. It’s very important as the group gets the briefing on the entire tour. The riders are introduced to each other and are open to ask any queries from the tour leader.

Do’s and don’ts are not to be 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 and its basic handling.

Day 2: Manali - Jispa (120 kilometers / 75 miles / 5 to 6 hours / altitude: 3,080 meters)

Today you have to cross the Rohtang La (altitude: 3,878 meters). This route will make you feel the heights of snow-covered Rohtang La and then the green field of Keylong Valley.

This day is also important for the bikes and the bikers as they will cross the first pass of this route – Rohtang La, one of the worst but the most lovable pass of the riders.

Day 3: Jispa - Sarchu (110 kilometers / 68 miles / 2 to 3 hours / altitude: 4,000 meters / 13,850 feet)

The tour starts early in the morning after breakfast. You cross Baralacha La (altitude: 4830 meters). This ride and this night stay is the most crucial stay of the entire tour. The reason is that this night stop is at a place of the highest altitude in the tour where you have to stay the night. Riders must follow the health and the safety instructions of the tour leader.

Day 4: Sarchu - Leh (230 kilometers / 143 miles / 8 to 9 hours / altitude: 3,500 meters / 11,500 feet)

Sarchu is the last town of Himachal Pradesh and after this you enter the state of Jammu and Kashmir. This road has many passes. The road is rough so the riders have to be very cautious. You will cross Nakeela Pass (altitude: 15,547 feet) and Lachulung La Pass (altitude: 16,616 feet).

Then comes the Great Gyanchuthang Plains. This plain land with a straight road in the centre is approximately 50 kilometers long. It leads to Thanglang La (altitude: 17,582 meters – it’s the worlds second highest road). On the way, you will cross Upshi ,Rumptse Village, and Upshi Village. From Upshi, river Indus will flow along the road. This river originated from Kailash Mansarovar.

One can see the barley field in these villages as it’s the main crop here. If you're in luck, then far away from the main road you can see the nomads of Leh Ladakh with their flocks of sheep, famous for pashmina wool.

Day 5: Leh

Today is bike check up day. If health wise you are feeling okay, then you can visit Shanti Stupa, Thiskey Monastery, Shey Palace, and go to the famous Tibet market. This day is free for shopping. If you are interested, local cabs can be arranged for you for river rafting in Indus river (extra charges). Take a rest for the adventure ride of the next day.

Day 6: Leh - Khardung La - Nubra (125 kilometers / 78 miles / 3 hours / altitude: 5,620 meters / 18,380 feet)

Today you will ride the highest motorable road in the world. It’s the most exciting and the most challenging path of the tour. This route is the Old Silk Route which leads to China. This route also leads to Saichen Glacier. To ride on this road and to reach the pass is the main target of this tour. 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'.

Crossing Khardung La you will enter the Nubra Valley. It’s a green valley with peach trees all over and sand dunes with double humped Siberian camels.

Day 7: Nubra - Pangong Tso (120 kilometers / 75 miles / 4 to 5 hours / altitude: 15,000 feet)

The Pangong Lake is the highest natural salt lake in Asia. It’s a real treat for your eyes. The first look will make you speechless. It’s 160 kilometers long and has a turquoise color. One third of the lake is in India and the rest is in China.

This road from Nubra to Pangong is the actual love passionate ride for off road lovers. This ride is a real dream ride for a biker.
