All About It
  • 12 Days  11 Nights 
  • For 10+ years
  • Best Season - Monsoon (Aug, Sept, Oct)

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 favour. 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.

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? This thought is what united Jatin and Tarun over a cup of chai, in spite of being from two unrelated backgrounds (CA and IT). 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. Their love for traveling and trekking together motivated them to start something of their own. Thus was born “Plan The Unplanned”, where travel goals come true. Under the Companies Act, Plan The Unplanned is incorporated as Unplanned Journeys Private Limited They started their journey on unsteady ground, much like any other company, but they shared an infatuation for travel and adventure with their customers, which amplified their determination, and thus, Plan the Unplanned family keeps getting bigger every day! Just about any travel idea can come alive with Plan The Unplanned…treks, adventure activities like rock climbing, kayaking, rafting, backpacking trips across the country, cultural outings, photo walks; everything that fellow travelers need, to explore the great outdoors together. Well now that the wanderlust has kicked in and you can already see a vacation in your nearest future, here’s what we have to offer!
