Get ready for your most memorable ride of your life, the Cycle Tour to Ladakh, which features lush green Manali valley, Khardung La – the highest motorable pass in the entire World and much more.
Distance 38 KM. | Altitude 3320 Mtr. This is our first ascent as we begin to "warm up" for the tough ride ahead. Cycling out of Manali through an evergreen area of pine and deodar trees, birch trees, Rhododendron on the way to the Rohtang pass. O/N camp.
Distance 53 KM. We start the day by finishing the 16km ascent to the Rohtang pass, where if the whether is fine there are some lovely scenic views on the horizon of snow covered peaks and Glaziers. Once we have refreshed ourselves in Rohtang, we leave the lush vegetation behind and continue with a descent to Gramphu. From here take left turn for Sisu O/N Camp.
Distance 40 KM. | Altitude 3350 Mtr. Continue a easy ride to tandi bridge in the foothills of the Pir Panjal range. From here take right turn to Keylong crossing mountain streams flowing over the road. Kelong is headquarter of lahol and spiti; continue our drive to Jispa O/N camp.
Distance 38 KM. | Altitude 3820 Mtr. A relatively easy day cycling up to Patseo. Passing the hamlet of Darcha we come out of a gorge and descend downhill before starting the ascent to Patseo. We now get a sense of the isolation of the area, with a few sheep dotted around and we begin to enter the territory of the Lamas. In the far horizon you can see the bleak and awesome spectacle of the Higher Himalayan ranges’/N camp
Distance 65 KM. | Altitude 4255 Mtr. Hard long climb to the Baralacha La Pass but the rewards are great as you travel through this wild and scenic country. The pass is arid with no vegetation, the sides of the mountains looking more like a quarry covered with loose rocks and scree. As we descend the gorge area of Bharatpur we will cross Mountain Rivers before reaching our destination/N camp.
An important days rest to further acclimatize and to absorb the magnificent scenery.
Distance 51 KM. | Altitude 4750 Mtr. The day starts with some easy cycling but we are soon tackling the zigzag "21 loops of Gata" at 15,030ft up the canyon wall. Once we reach the summit of the Nukeela Pass its downhill to Whisky Nula. The day passes some beautiful arid mountain scenery of the high ranges. O/N camp
Distance 30 KM. A terrible surface-just loose rocks, rutted, we start by ascending the second highest pass on the Manali-Leh highway up to Lachulung-La. The road here is likely to be the worst of the trip with a distinct lack of tarmac, it's very gravelly and there are many loose stones. We have a long descent to Pang down a steep sided gorge. ON stay camp.
Distance 45 KM. | Altitude 4835 Mtr. Followed by an 8km switchback climb before reaching the flat top of the Moray Plains. This barren area is known for its extreme temperatures in the morning and evening, fast winds and sandstorms. The only sign of life is the hardy Nomadic Changpas who can be seen tending their yaks in this most desolate place. We camp at below the world's second highest pass, the Tanglang La at 5,360m. O/N camp.
Distance 56 KM. | Altitude 4260 Mtr. This is a challenge indeed, but truly satisfying when you reach the top, before we set off down the exhilarating 1,200m descent of switchbacks to the village of Rumtse. O/N camp.
Distance 78 KM. | Altitude 3500 Mtr. As we continue the descent to Upshi the scenery changes dramatically as we arrive in a fertile irrigated valley by a river dotted by pretty villages and Stupas. The spectacular red colored mountains around us add to the beauty and richness of the scenery. Crossing the Indus River the road improves as we follow the other road users towards Leh. This is an easy ride as we pass the Thiksey Monastery and the Chortens Garden before we reach Leh. O/N Stay in hotel.
Taking a rest from the bikes today you have the chance to explore Leh and some of its twisting narrow streets, explore some of the more famous sites, such as Leh Palace or the Sakar Gompa monastery. Over night stay in hotel.
Distance 80 KM. | Altitude 3500 Mtr. We will set of for the Khardung - La Pass as soon as light comes up. Cycling 26 miles and gaining 6000 feet, this is the ultimate challenge of the trip. It is the highest motor able road in the world taking you to a dizzy 5,600m! The view from the top is spectacular, stretching from the Indus valley in the South over the endless peaks and ridges of the Zanskar range to the giants of the Saser Massif in the North. You can feel proud of a true achievement as you finish the trip with your final satisfying Ascent /descent and back drive to leh. O/N stay in hotel.
