Rightly revered as Mecca of adventure seekers across the globe, Ladakh boasts of adventure activities like trekking on ice sheets of frozen Zanskar(Chadar), camping, rock climbing, snow leopard spotting, river rafting, ice hockey, bike riding on world’s highest motorable passes, quad biking in Nubra sand dunes, etc.
Leh Ladakh is easily accessible by air and road. Leh Airport gets flights from major cities of the country. You can arrive in Ladakh via road too, with highways coming in from Srinagar and Manali, the latter being one of the most beautiful highways in the country. Enroute the Manali to Leh highway, road traverses over high altitude Himalayan passes such as Rohtang (3,978m), Keylong (3,350m), Tanglang La (17,585ft), Khardung-La, the highest pass in the world, Lachulung La (16,680ft), BaralachaLa (16500ft), and the beautiful Zojila Pass showcasing an ever-changing and dynamic landscape that alters from barren lands to lush green pastures.
Traveling by road is always preferred by those who want to be mesmerized by the spectacular and breathtaking beauty the Himalayas store for all the nature and adventure lovers. The only way to soak in the jaw-dropping beauty of the mighty hills is through a road trip. There is nothing so mesmerizing as this highway and you will be certain about it once you set your foot here. Beautiful waterfalls, hairpin turns, Beas river flowing with all its might parallel to the road, rocks chiseled roads will surely take your breath away. While on the route, you will come across the undeniable beauties of Manali, Khardung La Pass, Pangong Lake, Deskit, Hundar, the confluence of Zanskar and Indus Rivers, Nubra Valley, Tsomoriri Lake, etc. From the pleasantly hospitable town of Manali, the Manali to Leh road trip takes you on a roller coaster ride through distinct geographies, from hill town to high altitude arid desert, this safari is one mega experience. The fun of taking short photography journey halts, snacking halt, tea-coffee breaks or simply to marvel the artistry of the Supreme, in the serene hills is truly unrivaled.
An absolute biker has rightly quoted that “When you are in your car, you're always in a compartment, and because you're used to it you don't realize that through that car window everything you see is just more TV. You're a passive observer and it is all moving by you boringly in a frame”. But when a rider rides, he feels hot in the summers, feels cold in the winters and gets drenched in the rains. He smells only what nature serves and is always one with nature. However, in that cage called a car, you only feel the air conditioner and smell your car perfume. Robert M Pirsig stated in his famous book, Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, “On a motorcycle, the frame is gone. You're completely in contact with it all. You're in the scene, not just watching it anymore, and the sense of presence is overwhelming.” This holds so true for Leh Ladakh road trip. While riding along this exotic route you feel the cool wind gushing through your face and body, you bend along the hairpin bends of the road, reach unimaginable heights and conquer all your fears. Only a bike rider can enjoy the thrill of riding on these massive mountains. Over the course of your bike trip to Ladakh, you will be introduced to various challenges, extremely uneven routes, narrow passes and much more! Places here, from time immemorial, have been occupied by multitudinous mountains, valleys, small streams, rock formations, monasteries, gompas and what not.
There is no doubt about the fact that you will be riding on smooth as well as very tough and treacherous terrains during your trip. The challenges that can come with this magnificent roller coaster ride can be huge too. So when you are riding your own bike, the list of pros will stand too short compared to a long list of cons. While on the other hand renting a bike for your expedition will spare you from so much trouble and lets you travel light( in terms of luggage and stress)
