On our way to lamayuru we drive past ancient buddhist relics, gargantuan mountains and deep valleys and along the fabled waters of the indus. With much-deserved stops at alchi, likir and the sangam (confluence of the zanskar and indus), we ride to our heart's fill! Just before the lamayuru monastery is a place called the 'moonland', and, if you hear closely, you will find such utter peace and tranquil that you have never experienced before! (the moonland is so named because of it striking resemblance to the moon's surface). Overnight in leh.

Day 4
Up the khardungla and into the pretty nubra. Riding distance: 110 kms. It is time to ride up the world's highest motorable road! This is every rider's ultimate dream! Standing tall and proud atop the pass and drinking a contented cup of tea is one of the greatest pleasures in life!Beyond the imposing khardungla pass and towards the north is this region of astounding beauty called the nubra valley. Embraced by the nubra and shyok rivers and home to the high-altitude deserts, this is a place which leaves many a travelers infits of joy! In the evening, as the orange sun sets against the stark ladakh mountains, we will go on a camel ride on the double-humped bactrian camels at the hundar desert!At night, the cold and crisp wind blowing over from the desolate north would make the campfire even more enjoyable! Overnight in hundar

Day 5
Tales of maitreya and the magic of the nubra. Riding distance: 110 kms. After a thrilling and adventurous day 4, we rest our tired bodies a bit more. After a leisurely breakfast in the lap of the mighty mountains of diskit, we move towards the grand monastery there. The tall and imposing statue of the maitreya buddha at the monastery, overlooking the entire valley, is a sight to behold! After exploring the magnificent monastery, we say goodbye to the nubra valley and prepare to climb the khardungla once more!In the evening, as leh gets ready to plunge into another pleasant night, we stroll through the market and take in its happy-go-lucky vibe!

Day 6
The glory of the pangong. Riding distance: 160 kms. Immortalized by bollywood, adorned by nature, the pangong is ladakh's gift to us! On our agenda today is riding up the breathtakingly beautiful chang la pass, which is a true test of good riding, unbridled passion and ultimate love for the outdoors! The occasional snow and gravel on top of the chang la might make it an even more adventurous ride! On the other side of the changla are the beautiful changthang meadows beyond which, like a glistening jewel, is the pangong! We will have a sumptuous hot lunch at our campsite located on the lake's banks, take in the beauty of the pangong and go for a leisurely ride along the water! The sight of the evening sun setting against those differently-hued mountains would bowl you over! Sometimes at night, the waters shine in the starlight as if it's molten silver! Overnight at pangong.

Day 7

After breakfast, we have the traditional beyond wild's dip in the cold waters of the pangong before riding back towards the changla.

These fine examples of buddhist architecture, the mystical aura of the monks chanting 'om mani padme hum' and the tranquil atmosphere inside these sacred shrines are all experiences worth riding for! As the evening progresses, we thunder our way back towards leh and rest our tired enfields and bodies against the warmth of leh! Overnight in leh.

Day 8
Riding to sarchu: tough riding on a magical route. Riding distance: 250 kms. A deep slumber and a heavy breakfast later, we ride south, on that fabled road towards manali. Our longest ride on the expedition is also the one passing through the most beautiful places in india! Picture this - you ride the first few kilometers along the indus river, whose sparkling waters infuse a new joy in you. After that, we climb up the gargantuan tanglang la, the second highest pass on our expedition! Climbing the taglangla and standing on top, with our proud machines and a wide smile is what life is all about! The climb is followed by a steep descent of around 35 kilometers passing through gorgeous mountain scenery! The tortuous road then comes to the charming little tsokar lake before passing through the land of the pang - where millenia of erosion has formed the most spectacular mountains formations! Vast faces have been chiseled in the soft sands of the mountains, beneath which the sarchu river flows ever so merrily! Finally, after 10 hours of long and hard riding, we reach the tiny camping site at sarchu! The campsite, the otherworldliness of the surrounding mountains and the frigid night air would make the hot chocolate taste like ambrosia! Talk about special moments! Overnight in sarchu.

Day 9
Towards manali. Riding distance: 220 kms. If yesterday was a ride through a rugged, beautiful and stark landscape, wait for today! Another epic ride, another magnificent route! Our loyal enfields would ride across a few more formidable passes - the nakee la, lachulung la, baralacha la and the rohtang la - all standing proud and tall, all great testimonies to the great adventure you would have had! One of the most unique patches on today's ride are the 21 gata loops which are also called the 'jalebi bends'! Negotiating these tortuous turns would be your greatest feat! After another 10 hours of riding across these mighty passes, crystal clear lakes and tall pine forests, we finally roar into manali, that famed town acting as the gateway to the great himalaya for many generations! We will spend the evening just relaxing in the cool manali air! Overnight in manali.

Day 10
Exploring the hidden charms of manali. Riding distance: 70 kms. Manali, situated at an altitude of 6,730 feet would be our lowest point on the expedition. Home to many legends and tales, manali is a travelers' delight. We will ride to the hidimba temple, situated amidst dense deodhar woods, have a dip in the hot water spring at vashisht and even venture out in the countryside towards solang! After half a day of riding, we return to manali to wind up our expedition! This is it! After 10 days of experiencing heaven and hell, riding through the most beautiful yet hostile land in the country and after making many friendships and breaking a few shackles, we leave the revered himalaya and make our way towards delhi (by a volvo bus).

Event Description

Ladakh, situated in Jammu and Kashmir, without any shred of doubt, has some of the most unreal and scenic views in the country. You will be stumped and hypnotized by everything surrounding you. The sun-kissed mountains that are capped with white spotless snow, the clear lakes that look like giant, blue, precious crystals and the untouched, pristine greenery radiating such calmness, that it all becomes a part of you. The moment you step here, you feel like you have stepped into a magical land which you never want to leave.

A staggering experience of wild, untamed beauty, monumental scale and a hushed, haunting silence symbolizes Ladakh. Perhaps, the most mysterious of all Indian districts, Ladakh is a wonder-world of the raw forces of Nature, forces those haven't been disgraced by the deeds of men. A photographer`s favourite, Ladakh can't help but throw up landscape stunners all year round. But, it's in the summers that the region really sparkles, with pristine, blue lakes which look like paintings and surrounded by silvery, gray mountains that conjure up images of the moon!

In Ladakh, they say, never put the camera away, as vistas after vistas of breathtaking charm and grandeur unfold before your eyes! This arduous journey takes you right through the heart of this amazing land dubbed `The Little Tibet`, the land, where, as the sun rises, beauty in its most complete form descends upon the ground embracing everything within sight!

The influence of Tibetan culture reflects through the architecture and designs. The eye-boggling landscape sprinkled with beautiful cottages and monuments just pleases the eye. If the low temperatures in Ladakh makes you shiver, the extreme warmth of the locals grandly makes up for it. They welcome you with such tenderness and affection that you might just extend your stay. During your time there, feast upon the unbelievably delicious food, that you might not get easily elsewhere. An aura of surreal and serenity will engulf you almost the entire time. The magnificence of every turn and corner is so palpable that it might just make you cry happy tears, just at the thought of being at such a fascinating place. No artist could capture the beauty of this place, or do justice by their trials. And it just seems apt, that you too give it your best shot. And if you think that a part of you was left behind, don't worry, you're not the only one! And, it is in this fascinating land that we will ride our bullets to glory!
