Overview

When it comes to a Leh Ladakh bike trip, it’s a known fact that the majority of people have it reserved on top of their bucket list. It has been decades since Ladakh first opened its route for travelers and yet it is still renowned as a bikers paradise. 

The main reason is that a bike trip to Ladakh encompasses both adventure and peace. On one hand, you get to traverse through different terrains with the landscape in the backdrop changing from the lush green valleys of Kullu to the cold deserts of Ladakh. On the other hand, the dramatic shift in the culture that you witness as you move on this bike trip to Leh from Manali also is one of the reasons why so many travelers wait for Ladakh season to commence. 

The Leh Manali route is one that many adventure seekers opt for simply because of the rugged terrain with the majestic view of the Himalayas in the backdrop. Since the route from Manali to Leh stretches to approx 474Kms of land, it also allows riders to have the experience of the ultimate road trip on one of the most popular highways of India. 

Another reason why many travelers prefer to go to Leh Ladakh from Manali is because of all the popular attractions they get to witness throughout their journey. After all, Ladakh bike trips are known to provide people with diverse experiences, part of which comes from the landmarks that adorn the trail that leads you to Leh.
