1. Mountain Sickness:

One of the most important factor to consider before leaving for this expedition would be acclimatization. The climate in Ladakh is a lot different and unpredictable from where you live right now. Acute mountain sickness will surely hit you at some point of your expedition. So, you must be prepared for this condition because being at a high elevation and low oxygen levels of land may not be something normal for you. This can cause severe headaches, vomiting, tiredness, trouble sleeping, and dizziness which will not let you get the most out of your journey.

2. Check the Bikes:

Whether you rent a bike or take your own personal bike, giving a basic check up on the bike is a must because Ladakh has one of the most challenging roads both for the rider and the bike. So, once you have the bike with you, do the following checks on your bike so that you don't get stranded during the expedition and to have a full proof journey.

  • Firstly check its chain set and see if the sprocket teeth are pointed and the chain is rusty or not because you need to replace and get a new one if this is the case.
  • Then check its engine to see if there is no bad bearings and loose valves.
  • Check its tires because they shouldn't have cracks and should have optimum tread.
  • Also, check the brakes of the machine. Brakes must be strong and powerful.
  • Check its self-starter and also other electricals like headlights and other electrical aspects of the bike.

3. Phone Connectivity:

Phone connectivity on your expedition is very important because you never know what crisis you may come across. So, if you don't want to face any connectivity problems in Ladakh then get a postpaid connection in your phone. In Jammu & Kashmir, prepaid connection from the outer state do not work. So, it is best advised you get a BSNL, Airtel or Vodafone Postpaid Connection because these are the only service providers in Ladakh. Also, a lot of places in Ladakh may not catch up with a strong network on mobile so you must make sure you make all your important calls beforehand.
