Unplug from the hustle and plug into nature's most beautiful and adventurous Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali. To express it in most straightforward language, the Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali, which is approximately 476 km in length, is every rider's dream for its most adventurous roads, scenic valleys, barren to snowy mountains, vast flatlands to hairpin turns. All of this is combined with gushes of heavy cold wind, pushing you back from time to time, making this journey even more adventurous and exciting.
Gliding on this road means weaving into the poetic rhythms, talking to self, and plugging into nature with various desolate places, offbeat trails, monasteries, high-altitude lakes, and highest passes.
To gain enough confidence about the trails, it is in our favor. BRO (Border Road Organization) takes care of the highway. Further, the whole project is divided into Project Himank and Project Deepak. Project Deepak handles the part of the highway from Manali to Sarchu (222 km); Project Himank takes care of the highway from Sarchu to Leh (254 km).
Handling AMS on this road trip will be our utmost priority because you will be above an altitude of 14000 ft for more than 300 km. Our leaders will be taking time-to-time surveys of your health. Let them know if you feel anything out of the world
With that confirmed, Plan the Unplanned team invites you on a 12-day off-the-track Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali. You will be doing many things along with getting high doses of adrenaline. Check out the itinerary and book your next slot.
Leh Altitude: 3500
We will arrive at the Leh airport, and a small briefing session will be done by the team leader along with an icebreaking session. This day is a chill day as you will be accommodated at the hotel/homestay where you’ll stay overnight at Leh.
After a hearty breakfast, we'll set out on a day of exploring Leh's local attractions, including a stop at the Sangam area, where the Zanskar and Indus rivers converge to form a picturesque confluence. Because the Zanskar River frequently freezes over, it has earned the nickname "Frozen River." We'll also check out the Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, an anti-gravity hill called Magnetic Hill, and the Hall of Fam, a war memorial maintained by the Indian Army.
Finally, we'll stop by the stunning Shanti Stupa, renowned for its white dome, statues, and ornate carvings.
Dinner awaits us at our hotel in Leh, where we'll call it a day.
Altitude at Leh: 3500 Metre
Altitude at Nubra Valley: 10000 ft
We'll leave for Nubra Valley after breakfast. We're stopping for a snack at Khardung La, one of the world's highest motorable roads. When we arrive in Nubra Valley, we will set up camp. We will have dinner after checking in, followed by an overnight stay at Nubra Valley.
In the evening, you can experience a Double Hump Bactrian Camel safari, ATV rides, and other activities. This is all at your expense.
Proceed to Pangong. So, after breakfast
Pangong Tso Lake has grown in popularity since it was featured in the Bollywood film Three Idiots. It's a beautiful turquoise lake.
On the way to Pangong Tso, we'll stop at Diskit Monastery, which houses a 100-foot-tall colourful Buddha statue. We will resume our journey to Pangong after seeking Lord Buddha's blessings, where we will check in to our campsite, followed by dinner and an overnight stay. We'll also spend the night by Pangong Lake under the stars.
After breakfast, we will travel to Leh via Chang La Pass, one of the world's highest passes.
We'll stop along the way at the Shey Palace, which is known for its 12-meter-tall gold-gilded Buddha statue. We will also visit Thiksey Monastery, the largest in Central Ladakh. It takes time to visit them.
We will spend the night in Leh after checking into a hotel.
Travel Not Included
Stay Not Applicable
This is the final day of the trip, and after breakfast, we will check out of the hotel and head to Leh airport, where we will all disperse to our respective cities. Exploring the Sangam, Magnetic Hill, Shanti Stupa, The Hall of Fame, Gurudwara Pathar Sahib, Nubra Valley, Diskit Monastery, Pangong Tso, Shey Palace, Thiksey Monastery, Chang La Pass, and Khardung La concludes the trip on a high note.
Then give us a chance to say our goodbyes. We are confident that these six days will provide you with unforgettable memories.

What’s life without adventure? Isn’t the real purpose of life to travel, to experience new places, and witness the sunrise from new mountaintops?

They knew each other since the time Jatin was helping Tarun learn the ways of the wilderness through weekend treks and outings with another traveling group.
