Ride to the Top of the World: Leh-Ladakh is where you step in to experience the unforgettable motorbike ride to highest altitude which can turn out to be the “Ride of Your Life”.

Bike tour to Leh-Ladakh passes through some of the most breathtaking, challenging and awe-inspiring landscapes found on Earth. There is nothing like a ride over the mighty Himalayas on bike. It is surely one of the toughest motorcycle rides anywhere in the world since most parts of the road are at altitudes of 13,000 feet and above in the Himalayas. In addition, the number of miles one can cover in a day depends on the road and weather conditions and the few places one can stay en-route. The road leading to Ladakh is the same trail that was used by caravans going to the Silk Route centuries and centuries ago. If this isn’t awe inspiring enough, the roads leading into the region are only open four months of the year – for the remaining eight, they are covered in snow.
