Day 2

Manali - Jispa

Head to Jispa. We will cross the Rohtang pass which reaches an altitude of 4050m and from where you can see the snow white peaks of Lahaul Mountains that contrast with fluttering Buddhist prayer flags along the way. The pass provides a natural divide between the sub-humid/humid Kullu Valley with a primarily Hindu culture (in the south), and the arid/semi-arid high-altitude Lahaul and Spiti valleys with a Buddhist culture (in the north). From that side, we follow our route towards Jispa. This little village, barely 332 inhabitants, is situated at an altitude of 3200m. Jispa is usually promoted by travel operators as a necessary halt on the way to Ladakh when coming from Manali. Located right at the banks of river Bhaga, Jispa will offer you a fabulous view of the valley and an incomparable peace.
 
Day 3

Jispa - Pang

Get ready to cross the Ladakh borders! We’ll ride on a torturous zigzag shaped uphill road that lies in the shadow of the hanging glacier to Baralach La (4900m). Further, at Lachulung La, you can see incredible natural sculpture built by the wind blowing through the rocks of a canyon that reminds one of a scenery in Arizona. We start our descent to the green fields of Sarchu plateau and finally reach Pang, an useful halt on Manali Leh highway. There we’ll camp and spend a fun and convivial time together before sleeping among the clouds as this place reaches an altitude of 4500m! We’ll make a stop in Pang, a useful halt on Manali Leh highway.

Day 4

Pang - Tso Kar Lake - Tso Moriri Lake

We follow our route in direction of Tso Kar Lake. We take an endless strip of asphalt loops that look like scratched into the reddish cliffs and start our descent on the More Plains road, a long, wide and straight road. The More Plain is home to many species of animals like the Tibetan wild ass or kiang, wild horses, marmots. If you are lucky, you can even spot Changspa nomads camping in the surreal landscape of the More Plains. Flanked by beautiful mountains on both sides, this area is a major attraction to the Bikers heading towards Leh from Manali. This huge ‘top-of-the-world’ plateau presents a landscape unlike anything else on your journey. After the visit, head to Tso Kar lake, a fluctuating salt lake situated at 4530m altitude. It is known for its size (22 km²) and depth (95m) but also for its incredible bird abundance and diversity. After appreciating an immense and sumptuous panorama showing nature at its best, be ready for the next mother’s nature masterpiece! With a depth of 105m and a size of 120 Km², Tso Moriri lake is located at an altitude of 4595m and is the largest of the high altitude lakes in the Trans-Himalayan biogeographic region, entirely within India. The captivating color of the lake surrounded by majestic mountains, the incredible wealth of fauna and flora will make you feel like in a veritable heaven upon earth. This place is such peaceful that after nightfall, you could hear only your own heartbeat... or the roar of a snow Leopard!

Leh (Local Sightseeing)

On this day we will take a short break from the long ride to see more of Ladakh’s main sights. India’s "Little Tibet" was highly influenced by the presence of Singge Namgyal, the greatest king of Ladakh, who decided to open the famous trade route to Central Asia region. In 1974 the region was opened for visitors and since 2002 has a substantial number of tourists. Nowadays, Leh is the most important town and the capital of Ladakh region. With 27,513 inhabitants and an altitude of 3524m, the town tripled its size in the last two decades and became a focal point for sightseeing. In addition of its many cultural places and monuments (Shanti Stupa, Leh Palace, Leh Mosque, Namgyal Tsemo Gompa...) mostly influenced by a Tibetan secular architecture, you will find great enjoyment losing yourself in the small charming narrow streets, going to meet local people and hang around in the small craft shops and markets.

From Leh, we are ready to explore the fabulous Nubra Valley, a high altitude cold desert (about 3028m altitude) with rare precipitation and scant vegetation except along river beds. On the road, we will travel over the Khardung La pass listed in Guinness World Records as it is 5602m high! The world's highest motorable pass. After taking again your breath, we start entering in the Nubra Valley where you will be impressed by the incredible diversity of its landscapes. Snow-capped peaks, Rocky Mountains full of surprising contrasts and colors, and at its base sand dunes, bordered by an abundant vegetation and its river. Overnight stay in Hundar, a pleasant little village situated in the heart of the Nubra valley desert.
 
Day 9

Nubra Valley - Panamik - Leh

After taking advantage a last time of this wonderful place, we follow our route in direction of Panamik. Located about 150 kms north of Leh and at an altitude of 3183m, Panamik hamlet is the final frontier village of India in close proximity to the Tibetan region. This little village is popular for its hot springs which are considered therapeutic for several skin infections due to the presence of sulphur and other minerals. So get your swimsuits!
 
Day 10

Leh - Kargil

We start our journey in direction of Kargil town, 2704m altitude, the second largest urban centre (approx. 8,000 inhabitants). A quiet town now, in the past it served as an important trade and transit centre for the Central-Asian merchants due to its unique equidistant location. Since 1975, travelers of various nationalities have replaced traders of the past and Kargil has regained its importance as a centre of travel-related activities. Aside from revealing breathtaking views of the unfolding mountains cape or a magic sunset with the changing hues and shades of the hills, Kargil also offers some interesting walks through the suburban villages nestling along the rising hillsides of the river valleys.
 
Day 11

Kargil - Srinagar

In morning we follow our trip towards Srinagar. The road is flat and with a good surface and runs through paddy fields with the rushing river by your side for part of the journey. En route do not be alarmed at the sight of the army patrols with mine detectors as also pickets with light machine guns at regular intervals. The Kashmir valley is still a ‘war zone’ with army convoys being the target of militants. Fortunately, the frequency and intensity of attacks by militants has greatly diminished and travel on the main roads such as Srinagar to Jammu is pretty safe.
 
Day 12

The independent Hindu and Buddhist rule of Srinagar lasted until the 14th century when the Kashmir valley, including the city, came under the control of several Muslim rulers, including Mughals. Later, in 1814 the city became under the influence of the Sikhs. After India and Pakistan’s independence from Britain (1947), certain Pashtun tribes from mountainous region of north-west of Pakistan entered the Kashmir valley to capture it. The city is nowadays heavily militarized but despite that stormy political climate, you will enjoy still to do some sightseeing around the city who received an amazing cultural heritage under the predominant influence of the many successive dominations.

Two major Himalayan ranges, the Great Himalayan Range and the Pir Panjal, surround the landscape from the north and south respectively. They are the source of great rivers, which flow down into the valleys, forested with orchards and decorated by lily-laden lakes.
