In evening we get back to hotel to have dinner and rest and relax.

Day 3 – Manali to Jispa, 135kms 6-7 hours through Rohtang pass 3980 meters

First 35 km is nice road windings till Marhi and then we have to cross the famous traffic jam & challenging muddy road about 10 km on the way to Rohtang pass (13,044ft). Here you catch fantastic views back towards Manali and the surrounding Himalaya! Next we descend into the Chandra Valley,  stop(check point) take a “chai break” before we continue along the bank of the mighty Chandra & then after Tandi we enter in Gahar Valley along Bhaga river through the town of Keylong, have another chai break and then finally head to Jispa  (Tod Valley)where we stay in the Hotel.

Day 4 – Jispa to Sarchu 90kms, 5 – 6 hours ride; including the Baralacha pass 4890 meters.

Quick stop at the police check post & and then we follow windings road until Baralacha. We cross one of the toughest passes of the journey: the Baralacha pass, lies at 4,890 meters and catch stunning views…Then we descend to “Bharatpur” for a well-deserved chai break and hot lunch.  After lunch we ride some fantastic bits of road along the valley floor to our overnight campsite in Sarchu. This is a wonderful semi-permanent camp, dinner and night in the deluxe camp.

Day 5 – Sarchu – Tsokar -Leh (3500 m) 7H – 250 KMS

The road goes to the Lachlung La (5050 m) and plunges into gorge. Keeping an eye out for Tibetan Nomads, we will ascend quickly again and emerge into an amazing high altitude valley. After check-post Pang ride to the Tanglang La (5300 m), the second highest motor able pass in the world. We are rapidly losing altitude and reach the first village Ladakhi Rumtse. The road winds through a gorge impressive before flowing into the Indus Valley. We follow the Indus 50 km and climb up a side valley to finally reach Leh, the capital of Ladakh. Enroute, visit the monasteries of Hemis, the largest monastery in Ladakh and Thikse, built atop a rocky peak overlooking the village. Late evening, you will reach to the hotel. Overnight in guest house/ Hotel in Leh.

Day 6: Leh to Nubra Valley – Hunder 125kms, 6/7h on the road.

We will start the day riding up to the Khardung Pass (which holds the title of the ‘World’s Highest Motor able Road’) for a cup of chai and some stunning views. At over 17,500ft you’ll be short of puff, so it will be a quick stop before we head down the other side of the pass and descend to Khardung village. This is a very isolated area, the road only having been opened to traffic as recently as 1984. From Khardung the scenery opens into some of the most magnificent views imaginable, and the vast Nubra valley. Nubra, being bordered by both China and Pakistan, is of great strategic importance and outsiders are not allowed beyond the village of Hundar. It is in this furthest accessible village that we will stop for the night, sleeping comfortably under canvass in the peaceful grounds of a disused Buddhist monastery overnight in a local house with a local family.

Day 7: Nubra Valley – Hunder to Pangong Tso-180kms 7/8h on the road.

From Nubra we will take a new route, only completed in 2010, but this road is always under construction, every year harsh winter snowfall and avalanche destroy the road, we’ll negotiate constantly hairpins and some impressive road sights from Nubra to the equally impressive Changtang Valley. More sinuous tarmac will bring the deep blue Pangong Lake into view, alongside which we will ride until we arrive at our camp, which is as far as the road towards Chinese-infested Tibet goes. Again, the beauty of this destination borders on unfeasibility, the quality of the high-altitude light is reflected from the salt water giving the area an otherworldly feel, overnight in a fixed camp on the bank of lake.

Day 8: Pangong Tso to Stock Monastery 200kms, 7/8h on the road. 

From Pangong it’s a steady climb up to the second highest pass of the tour, Chang La. This place is less visited and has a more remote feel than Khardung, while being all but its match in loftiness. The descent to the main Manali-Leh highway is yet again entertaining thanks to the serpentine road and awesome views. We end the day at the Monastery village of Thiksey with time to tackle the short but steep climb up to the monastery complex for sunset. Overnight with a local family nearby Stock palace.

Day 9: Stock Monastery to Lama Yuru via Alchi, 150kms-5/6 h on the road.

Leaving the capital of Ladakh, we will play alongside the Upper Indus River, travelling through ancient Buddhist villages and past a number of glorious monasteries. On good tarmac we wind up and over several small passes, across desert plains and past colourful, mind-boggling rocks capes.

The 1000-year-old Lamayuru Monastery is situated high on a valley side at 11,500ft and houses 150 monks. Staying nearby we will have the opportunity to watch the sun go down over the buildings and crop fields in this idyllic setting. The evening can then be spent exploring the monastery, or simply taking in the many ancient Stupas around the settlement and gazing in awe at the huge and colourful rock formations all around. Or just kick back with a beer amid the scenery, overnight in a Guest House nearby the monastery.

Day 10: Lamayuru to Kargil- 7/8 hour’s ride, 125 kms, 2600meters, over Fotu la 4,200meters

After breakfast we ride to the Kargil. We ride zigzagging hairpins up to Fotu la pass, and we will stop by Mulbek to visit the small but impressive Buddhist monastery.
