Manali To Leh Cycling Via Tso Kar Along With Khardung La

Manali to Leh
15 Days14 Nights

Event Overview

This Adventure ride travels over five spectacular passes, two of which are over 16,600ft/5000mt through the Indian Himalayas, unparalleled for their sheer scale and austere beauty.

Ladakh lies embedded in a world of mountains, with the Karakoram range in the north-west, the Himalaya in the south-west and the Trans-Himalaya at its core. This unique region, home to traditional Tibetan Buddhism, is the scene for one of cycling's epic journeys, crossing two of the highest passes in the world! Over the course of the ride the scenery changes from verdant deodar forests and flower-filled valleys to barren lunar landscapes with towering peaks and hanging glaciers. As well as the spectacular surroundings, the rich culture of the Ladakhis is also a highlight and as our route weaves its way across the Himalaya we will see monasteries majestically perched on high spurs, and cycle off to explore little-visited areas, enjoying the tranquility and beauty of a genuinely untouched land. However, there are also great daily changes of temperature, with strong winds . As a result of the dry and harsh climate, only sporadic high steppes are covered with grass, and arid and semi-arid deserts dominate a nonetheless grandiose mountain world.
