Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

Overview

A Leh Ladakh bike trip is on top of the bucket list of many travelers. The reason is that Ladakh is renowned for being a biker’s paradise. The ever-changing terrains, the thrill of offroading, and the contrasting landscape make it a dream destination. In the past few years, the popularity of Ladakh has increased tenfold. Travelers from all over the globe come to visit the Land of High passes for many different reasons but the topmost reason remains the same, a bike trip where they get to traverse through jagged roads, dirt terrains, and the many high passes that Ladakh has to offer.

The adrenaline rush that riders experience when they embark on a Leh Ladakh bike trip is unsurpassable and though the land has remained true to its nature, it has also let travelers unravel the many hidden gems that remained unexplored for a long time. 

When it comes to the ideal route choice for a Ladakh bike trip for all adventure enthusiasts, the Manali Leh route remains on top simply because it offers the most stunning views of the Himalayas. Not to mention the contrasting backdrops that you’d be witnessing when driving from the lush green valleys of Kullu to when you finally end up in the barren lands of Ladakh. 

The Manali Leh route stretches up to an expanse of 474 Kilometers and it allows you to traverse through many high motorable passes as well. In this Leh Ladakh bike trip itinerary, we first make our way from Manali to Jispa as we ride through the iconic Atal Tunnel which is nestled at an altitude of 10,000ft in the Pir Panjal ranges of the Himalayas.
