    Detailed Itinerary

    ARRIVAL IN MANALI - ALLOTMENT OF BIKES AND TEST DRIVE

    Arrive in Manali, then our support staff will receive you at the bus stop and drive you to our base. After refreshments and debriefing and the required paperwork, bikes will be allocated to you. Get used to your bikes while we go for a drive to Old Manali for an early dinner. Ride back to the base for a good night’s sleep. Any last-minute shopping can be done while in Manali.

    MANALI - ROHTANG LA (3978 M) - DEEPAKTAAL - SURAJTAAL - BARALACHA LA (4890 M) - SARCHU - 228 KM - 8 HRS - CHALLENGING RIDE OVER ROHTANG PASS IN TRAFFIC AND MIST AND THEN SOME WICKED ROADS

    We start our journey from Manali (at 09000 hrs) to Leh stopping at Sarchu for the first night. Today we cross Rohtang La (3978 m), (La means Pass). The Rohtang La is the gateway to Lahaul. The valley of Lahaul is situated to the south of Ladakh. For this very reason this place derived its name “Lho-Yul” meaning “Southern Country”.

    The ride on the first 60 odd km to the top of Rohtang La

    Lahaul abounds with monasteries or gomphas, the homes of Lamas (Buddhist monks); therefore Lahaul is often referred to as “The Land of the Lamas”. The mountains rise to a mean elevation of 18000 feet, with the highest peak touching over 21000 feet and the lowest touching 9000 feet where River Chenab enters Chamba. Numerous lateral spurs shoot off from the main mountains filling all the valleys with glaciers. It is this feature which made Andrew Wilson, a European traveler (1873), call Lahaul “a valley of glaciers”.

    The whole Lahaul & Spiti district is a cold desert whose bare rocks and steep slopes stare the visitors in the face. The Rivers Chandra & Bhaga, which constitute the River Chandrabhaga/Chenab after their confluence at Tandi, are the major features on the geomorphology of this region.

    SARCHU TO LEH OVER BARALACHA LA (4890 M), NAKEE LA (4769 m), LUNGLACHA LA (5059 M) – DEEPAKTAL – SURAJTAL – TAGLANG LA (5328 M) – LEH – 154 KM – 8 HRS - CHALLENGING 70KM TO PANG THEN SOME MIND-BLOWING RIDING ON THE MOORE PLAINS ON AWESOME ROADS AFTER PANG

    Today we cross Baralacha La (4890 m), before Baralacha La we will stop briefly for a photography session at Lake Deeptaal and the magnificent Lake Surajtaal. Roads are mostly in bad shape and as the altitude increases, you might start noticing the first effects of Acute Mountain Sickness. It is advisable to take it easy and don’t over stress yourself, especially at the summit of Baralacha La, 16,500ft. From Baralacha La it is again a downhill but a rough ride till Bharatpur, after which the road condition starts improving gradually as you approach Sarchu. Sarchu, at an altitude of 14,000ft, is a collection of tents and a militarily base. Even though it is quite a windy place and high in altitude, it is the prefered night stop for most travelers. You will need to register at the check post in Sarchu before proceeding further. Roads from Sarchu till the start of Gata Loops are not too bad. Gata Loops are a collection of 21 hair-pin bends that take you to an altitude of 15,302 feet, roads in the loops are in not so good condition and the slow moving trucks leaving cloud of thick smoke make the ascent feel tougher than it actually is. Next up is the third pass on the Manali Leh route, Nakee La, (4750 m or 15,547 ft. While few km up the road is Lachulung La, (5059 m or 16,616 ft.)
    The descent from Lachulung La will take you to Pang which is a temporary tent settlement and has a check post where travelers need to register themselves.
    The road from Pang to Leh is excellent and will take you over a plateau (42 km long), Skyangchu Thang (The biggest and highest plateau on earth), also called the Moore Plains.

    LEH - REST DAY AND SPECTACULAR SHOOTING OF NOT TO MISS PLACES IN AND AROUND LEH - ROADS MAINTAINED BY BRO IN EXCELLENT CONDITION

    Day for some rest and checkup of the vehicles and then some sightseeing
    Come early afternoon, we’ll drive to the 17th-century Leh Fort, the most famous landmark in town. From the Fort there’s short trail up to Tsemo Palace; the light walking can help you acclimatize, but we’ll gladly whisk you to the top by car if you prefer. At the top is a big reward: sweeping 360° views of Leh, the valley and its surrounding mountains, which includes the well-known 6000m+ Stok Kangri peak, towering in the distance at a height of 6,137m.We head to Leh’s other great panorama point, the Shanti Stupa, late in the afternoon. The view from here is quite different to the one from Leh Palace: you get a sense of the huge mountain spaces, and the illuminated town in the late ‘blue’ evening light makes for compelling images. Especially in the night when the Stupa is lit, the view is spectacular.
    Thiksey, 40mins drive from Leh (especially in the right light) is simply spectacular. Tier upon tier of buildings rise on a crag above the River Indus, white fronts bouncing the prevailing light back at you against the deep Ladakh sky. We wander next through the monastery complex, the photo opportunities coming thick and fast. (You know those iconic National Geographic-style Tibetan/Ladakhi/Buddhist shots that got you all fired up about coming here in the first place? —they probably came right out of this same monastery.)
    We tear ourselves away to go a few minutes north to Shey, a palace and a monastery that also tumbles splendidly down a hillock. Once the home of royalty — the Namgyal kings were required to father their sons here — it now houses the largest metal statue of Buddha in Ladakh. It is 7.5m high, built from Zanskar copper hammered out into sheets on a nearby rock and gilded with five kilograms of solid gold. Hemis Gompa: the largest monastic foundation of Drukpa Kagyu Order of Tibetan Buddhism and Stok Palace & Sindhu Ghat. Overnight stay in Leh.

     

    LEH - KHARDUNG LA - NUBRA (DISKIT - HUNDAR) - TURTUK (BALTISTAN) - 205KM - 7 HRS - EASY RIDING OVER MOSTLY GOOD ROADS THANKS TO BRO (BORDER ROADS ORGANISATION)

    Turtuk is a village 205 km from Leh on the banks of Shyok River. Turtuk gram panchayat is the northern most village of India. Turtuk was under Pakistan’s Control till 1971, but later India got control of this strategic area. Predominantly a Muslim village, residents speak Baltistani, Urdu and Ladakhi Language. Turtuk, is the last outpost in India from where the Pakistan- controlled Northern Areas begin. Turtuk is one of the gateways to the Siachen Glacier. Diskit Monastery also known as Deskit Gompa or Diskit Gompa is the oldest and largest Buddhist monastery (gompha) in the Nubra Valley of Ladakh, northern India. It belongs to the Gelugpa (Yellow Hat) sect of Tibetan Buddhism. It was founded by Changzem Tserab Zangpo, a disciple of Tsong Khapa, founder of Gelugpa, in the 14th century. It is a sub-gompa of the Thiksey gompha. Lachung Temple and Hundar Monastery are also located nearby; the latter is below the main road near a bridge. The monastery has statue of Maitreya Buddha in the prayer hall, a huge drum and several images of fierce guardian deities. An elevated cupola of the monastery depicts a fresco of the Tashilhunpo Monastery of Tibet. The village of Turtuk which was unseen by tourists till 2010 is a virgin destination for people who seek peace and an interaction with a tribal community of Ladakh. The village is stuffed with apricot trees and children. The local tribe, Balti, follow its age old customs in their lifestyle and speak a language which is just spoken and not written. For tourists Turtuk offers serene camping sites with environment friendly infrastructure. Enjoy the scenic drive. Stay in homestay/camp.

    TURTUK - HUNDER – DISKIT - WARSHI – PANAMIK – 145 KM – 5 HRS – A BEAUTIFUL RIDE ALONG RIVER SHYOK ON GOOD ROADS

    Today we drive 105 km to Warshi and then a U-turn to the other bank of River Shyok to Panamik. Nubra is a tri-armed valley located to the north east of Ladakh valley. Diskit the capital of Nubra is about 150 km north from Leh town, the capital of Ladakh district, India. Local scholars say that its original name was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). The Shyok River meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. The Shyok river is a tributary of the Indus river. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. i.e. 3048 m above the sea level. The common way to access this valley is to travel over the Khardung La pass from Leh town. On the Shyok (pronounced Shayok) River, the main village, Diskit, is home to the dramatically positioned Diskit Monastery which is built in 1420 AD. Hundar was the capital of the erstwhile Nubra kingdom in the 17th century, and is home to the Chamba Gompa. Between Hundar and Diskit lie several kilometres of sand dunes, and (two-humped) bactrian camels graze in the neighboring “forests” of seabuckthorn. Non-locals are not allowed below Hundar village into the Balti area, as it is a border area. The beautiful village of Baigdandu is also located in this area. There is a marked presence of people with startling blue eyes, auburn hair and rosy cheeks as against the typical mongoloid features of the Ladakhis. Local lore has it that they were a Greek tribe who came in search of Jesus Christ’s tomb and eventually settled here. Baigdandu is also known for the goats that give you the famous Pashmina shawls. Drive along the banks of the Shyok river, where a bit of patience, a touch of luck and a long telephoto might capture you red fox, partridge, hare, weasel and migratory ducks resting in river pools. There is much to pleasurably distract us here: if the light is good you’ll be asking to stop every mile or so to capture an amazing atmospheric river valley landscape, a field of shockingly vivid lavender or yellow barley.

    PANAMIK – SHYOK – DURBUK – TANGSTE – LUKUNG – SPANGMIK (PANGONG TSO) –187 KM–8 HRS - EASY RIDING MIXED WITH REALLY DEMANDING STUFF ON SHYOK RIVER ROAD, CHALLENGING RIDE OVER WARI LA

    Pangong Tso: Tibetan for “long, narrow, enchanted lake”, also referred to as Pangong Tso, is an endorheic lake in the Himalayas situated at a height of about 4,350 m (14,270 ft). It is 134 km long and extends from India to Tibet. Approximately 60% of the length of the lake lies in Tibet. The lake is 5 km (3.1 mi) wide at its broadest point. All together it covers 604 km. During winter the lake freezes completely, despite being saline water. It is not part of Indus river basin area and geographically a separate land locked river basin. The brackish water of the lake has very low micro-vegetation. Guides report that there are no fish or other aquatic life in the lake, except for some small crustaceans. On the other hand, visitors see numerous ducks and gulls over and on the lake surface. There are some species of scrub and perennial herbs that grow in the marshes around the lake. The lake acts as an important breeding ground for a variety of birds including a number of migratory birds. During summer, the Bar-headed goose and Brahmini ducks are commonly seen here. The region around the lake supports a number of species of wildlife including the kiang and the Marmot. Formerly, Pangong Tso had an outlet to Shyok River, a tributary of Indus River, but it was closed off due to natural damming. Two streams feed the lake from the Indian side, forming marshes and wetlands at the edges. Strand lines above current lake level reveal a 5 m (16 ft.) thick layer of mud and laminated sand, suggesting the lake has shrunken recently in geological scale.
    Camp at an awesome location by the lake.

    REST DAY IN PANGONG

    Rest day and camping around Pangong. Replenish yourself and enjoy the emerald lake.

    PANGONG TSO – CHUSHUL – TSAGA LA (4420 m) – HANLE – 244 km – 6 HRS –MESMERISING DRIVE BY THE LAKE ON EASY TRACKS IN RESTRICTED AREA BESIDES IN TIBET BORDER

    Today’s journey beside the lake will be amazing and the first village you would be crossing is Man and then Merak. The ride beside the lake is truly mesmerizing and bound to remain etched in your mind forever. After that, it will be a cruise as we ride on the Tibetan Plateau, vast flatlands at a height of 4000+ meters.

    Next is Chusul where your permits would be checked.

    After crossing Chusul, the road approaches to a 14500 ft pass Tsaga la with China on your left side and you would find lots of army outposts at your left on top of mountains.

    As you move towards Hanle, the size of the mountains starts to decrease and you start witnessing a series of small mountains clustered together giving a feeling of a different world altogether. The journey to Nyoma – Loma and up to Hanle is smooth with great views.

    Hanle in Changthang region of Ladakh is one of the most beautiful, enchanting, calm and soul loosing places in India. Hanle has a lovely Hanle Monastery offering some great aerial views of whole village that is a home of about 1000 people. The views from the top of monastery are just breath-taking. Hanle also houses an Indian Astronomical Observatory which is the world’s highest observatory in the world at a staggering height of 4500 m.

    Stay in guesthouse/homestay in Hanle.

    HANLE – PHOTI LA – UMLING LA – HANLE

    Today we will drive up to the highest motorable pass in the world – Umling La via another high altitude pass – Photi La. It is by no means a comfortable and easy ride but is an experience and a thrill of a life time for sure. To be very honest, the thrill and the difficulty level increases multifold because you would be riding bikes. The terrain is rough and very treacherous. The idea here is not to demotivate anybody but to simply set right expectations. It is a ride of about 104 km leading to Umling La via Photi la from Hanle. As the Indo-China border is very near here, it requires a special permit to access this route which can be procured from the Magistrate in Leh. However, to access the village of Demchok from Umling La, requires another permit which is very tough to obtain.  From here, we will be back in Hanle for the night. We will take this route to Umling La depending on ease of availability of permits.

    HANLE - KIAGAR TSO - TSOMORIRI TSO – 150 km – 6 hrs – GOOD ROADS AND TRACKS IN THE MOST REMOTE AREAS BORDERING TIBET

    Another day of exciting ride. Feel sheer riding pleasure as we drive on exciting tracks to reach Karzok on the banks of Tsomoriri Tso. We are bound to encounter some wildlife today, Kiangs and some migratory birds for sure.

    There exist two routes to reach Tso Moriri from Hanle, one via Mahe bridge and other via Chumur. One route goes via Chumur whose permits are hard to come by but if you are able to get them then nothing gets better and adventurous on your Ladakh journey. And we plan to take this route adding another pass to our trip.

    Hanle – Salsal La (62 KMs) – Charchagan La (23 KMs) – Tso Moriri / Korzok (60 KMs) = 145 KMs

    Just in case we don’t get permits for Chumur, then we’ll take the other equally beautiful route-

    Hanle – Loma (51 KMs) – Nyoma (22 KMs) – Mahe (25 KMs) – Sumdo (10 KMs) – Tso Moriri / Korzok (53 KMs) = 161 KMs

    The last petrol pump we left behind in Upshi, Leh and since we want to exit Ladakh through Manali – Leh Highway from Tso Moriri the next petrol pump will be available at Tandi about 900 km away..

    Korzok, is a Tibetan Buddhist monastery belonging to the Drukpa Lineage and an ancient village on the northwestern bank of Tso Moriri (lake) in Leh District, Ladakh, India. Korzok village, perhaps the highest permanent settlement in India, is situated from 4,520 m (14,830 ft) to 4,570 m (14,990 ft). The gompha (monastery), at 4,560 m (14,960 ft.), houses a Shakyamuni Buddha and other statues. It is home to about 70 monks. In the past, the monastery was the headquarters of the Rupshu Valley. It is an independent monastery under Korzok Rinpoche, widely known as Langna Rinpoche. The 3rd Korzok Rinpoche, Kunga Lodro Ningpo was the founder of Korzok Monastery. This revered monastery is 300 years old. The Tso Moriri Lake below it is also held in reverence, and considered equally sacred by the local people. With the efforts of the WWF-India the Tsomoriri Tso has been pledged as a ‘Sacred Gift for a Living Planet’ by the local community (mostly Chang-pa herdsmen). As a result, the area has been opened up for tourists. Tso Moriri is a lake in the Ladakhi part of the Changthang Plateau (literally: northern plains) in Jammu and Kashmir in northern India. The lake is at an altitude of 4,522 m (14,836 ft). It is the largest of the high altitude lakes entirely within India and entirely within Ladakh in this Trans-Himalayan biogeographic region. The official name of the land and water reserve here is the Tso Moriri Wetland Conservation Reserve. The lake is fed by springs and snow-melt from neighboring mountains. Most water enters the lake in two major stream systems, one entering the lake from the north, the other from the southwest. Both stream systems include extensive marshes where they enter the lake. It formerly had an outlet to the south, but this has become blocked and the lake has become a endorheic lake. The lake is oligotrophic in nature, and its waters are alkaline. Accessibility to the lake is largely limited to summer season, though Karzok on the northwest shore and the military facilities on the eastern shores have year-round habitation. The lake is ringed by hills rising over 6,000 m (20,000 ft). “Changpas”, the nomadic migratory shepherds (pastoral community) of yak, sheep, goat, and horses of Tibetan origin and who are engaged in trade and work on caravans in Ladakh region, are the main inhabitants of the area. Changpa (Champa) herders use the land of this valley as grazing ground and for cultivation. Thirty-four species of birds included 14 species of water birds (some are pictured in the gallery) of which following are the vulnerable species: Black-necked cranes (Grus nigricollis) endangered, Bar-headed geese (Anser indicus)– only breeding ground in India, Brown-headed gulls (Larus brunnicephalus), Great crested grebe (Podiceps cristatus) (rare), Black-necked grebe (Podiceps nigricollis) (rare). Mammals:Tibetan gazelle (Procapra picticaudata), Goa antelope (threatened), Lynx, Nayan, (Ovis Ammon hodgson), Bharal, Himalayan blue sheep, Tibetan Ass (Kiang) or (Equus kiang), endemic to the Tibetan Plateau Great Tibetan Sheep, One species of Marmot, Marmota Himalayana in large numbers seen on the hill slopes surrounding the lake and also along the roadsides, One species of Hare, Lepus oistolus, One species of vole, Alticola Rovelei, Three species of mouse hares, Ochotona Alticola, Ochotona macrotis, Ochotona curzoniae or Tibetan sand fox, Scinella Ladacensis. Large carnivores: Carnivores Fauna reported are: the Snow Leopard (Uncia uncia), the Tibetan Wolf (Canis lupus chanco)
