Program

Day 1: Arrival in Leh

Your flight from Delhi will be an early morning one. On this day when you arrive in Leh by air, you will witness one of the most beautiful sights of Leh valley amidst the spectacular Himalayan peaks. Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels shall receive you at the airport and take you to your hotel. This day you will take it easy, it is 10,000 feet and you need to acclimatize to get used to low oxygen levels, so take this day at leisure.

For non-Indian tourists, this day will be used for applying and processing the mandatory inner line permits. Your bikes will also arrive at your hotel and you could go out for a small trail ride. Otherwise just walk around the unique Leh market, no exertions today.

Day 2: Leh - Indus Valley - Leh

This is the day Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels has kept for a local tour of Leh region on a car or a motorcycle. It is another day to acclimatize to high altitude also to cover some essential tourist spots such as Leh Palace, Shanti Stupa, Hall of Fame Museum, a ride to Shey, Thikse, Stok Palace, and Hemis Monastery. If you have opted to bike, then it is a good day to get used to your bike and the traffic conditions.

Day 3: Leh - Lamayuru - Moonland - Alchi - Likir - Leh

This day, you will drive out to explore some very unique landscapes of the Himalayan region. You will go on a scenic drive through some fine rocky faces to visit Lamayuru Monastery and Moonland. On your way back, you will visit Alchi and Likir Monasteries, the magical phenomenon of the Magnetic Hill, and the scenic Bazgo Plains. You will ride back to the hotel by late afternoon.

On this day, you will be pretty comfortable with the roads of Ladakh and of course your motorcycle. You are now ready to explore other regions of Ladakh, the largest district of India.

Day 4: Leh - Khardung La - Nubra Valley

Having spent three nights in Leh, you are now fairly acclimatized and used to your iron horse. This is a landmark day. Today, you will ride on to the world's highest motorable pass, Khardung La (18,380 feet) and cross into the beautiful Nubra Valley through some deep gorges. You will stay overnight in a typical high altitude Ladakhi village in Nubra Valley, Hunder, or Sumur.

Witness the rustic lifestyle of people in these most rugged terrains of the world. What you ride today has been for thousands of years a caravan route that used to be passed to the silk route through Karakoram Pass.

Day 5: Nubra Valley - Leh

You will ride out after breakfast and explore the beautiful Nubra Valley, the green hamlets nestled in the valley supporting life. The essential tourist spots you see today are the Hunder Sand Dunes, double-humped Bactrian camels, and the unique Diskit Monastery and its giant Buddha. The Bactrian camels are wonderful remnants of the trading days.

At noon, you will ride back to Leh via Khardung La Pass and check into your hotel. If the route is good and the pass is open, you may take a different route to Leh via the less visited pass of Warila.

Day 6: Leh - Pangong Tso Lake

This day, you will take on the third axis, a ride to Pangong Tso through some more high altitude passes and beautiful grazing grounds and landscapes. At noon, you will arrive in one of the most spectacular vistas of your life, Pangong Tso Lake. It has some of the most beautiful hues of blue that you will ever see in your life. It is a lake that extends deep into China with only one-third with India. A night by the lakeside camp will be an experience of a lifetime.

Day 7: Pangong Tso Lake - Leh

Having done visit Pangong Tso, now it is time to return back to Leh for your last evening in Ladakh. You can spend the time collecting some memorabilia from Leh town or just have an easy evening looking back at your time spent in this wonderful part of the world. These memories will surely keep coming back to you. If you wish to extend your trip and see Tso Moriri Lake, please talk to Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels well in advance.

Day 8: Fly out to Delhi

You have had one of the unique experiences in life. It's time to fly out of Leh. Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels' representative will transfer you to the airport. Everything essential is covered on this week-long tour. It will take three more days if you wish to see the regions of Turtuk (a Balti village on Indo-Pak border) and Tso Moriri (another beautiful high altitude lake). If you are keen and have time, do ask Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels to plan your Kashmir Valley Tour.

Notes

There may be minor re-routing in case of weather conditions or road conditions at the actual time of travel. Your guide is best qualified to take this call. Ladakh is a very high region in the mountains, Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels recommends driving in prior to the starting of your tour as this will save you two or three days of acclimatization. If you choose to fly into the area, Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels recommends arriving a few days early to avoid being hindered by sickness.

It is important to remember that petrol pumps are only a few and far between in this region. When traveling between Manali and Leh, for example, the next pump after Keylong is 365 kilometers away. It is for this reason that you must plan meticulously to avoid being caught out with an empty tank.

Ladakh in the Tibetan language means a land of high passes and is often referred to as the Little Tibet. This high altitude Himalayan desert is a region west of Tibet and falls in the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Northern India.

This unique and beautifully landscaped land of Lamas and monasteries is sandwiched between the Karakoram mountain range to the north and the Himalayas to the south. The capital of Ladakh region is Leh that happens to be the largest district of India and falls on traditional silk route artery.The rugged mountains of earthy colors, emerald blue high altitude lakes, and the world's highest motorable passes make it one of most preferred destinations among the adventure enthusiasts.

Jammu, Kashmir, and Ladakh cover most of Northern Himalayan region which has a landscape and moonscape-like nowhere else. It is largely a journey with the wind in your face, spiced with adventure, nature, and culture to some of the most beautiful and rugged parts of the world.

The Kashmir valley has been called the 'heaven on earth' for centuries. Ladakh, particularly, is a spiritual realization of a dream. Here, the brown mountains break into fantasy colors as you look closer at the bright green oasis around villages in the river valleys. There are centuries-old monasteries, perched over rock cliffs, cradle the ancient traditions of mystical Buddhism, exquisite frescoes, and priceless thangkas.

This highest cold desert in the world is a journey of self-discovery at altitudes exceeding 12,000 feet above mean sea level. You pass the deep river gorges as you explore to the world's highest motorable pass, the Khardung La. This route is surely one of the toughest motorcycle rides anywhere in the world. The Viktorianz Bespoke Adventure Travels brings you a ride that will leave you mesmerized. A life-changing journey it will be.

Did you know that the road leading to Ladakh is the same trail that was used by caravans going to the Silk Route centuries ago? If this isn’t awe-inspiring enough, the roads leading into the region are only open four months of the year and for the remaining eight they are covered in snow.

For many riders, the highlight of bike tours to Leh Ladakh is Khardung-La, the highest motorable road in the world. To pass from Leh into the Nubra Valley, you will need to drive your motorcycle along a road that sits at 18,380 feet. It is surely an exhilarating experience.
