Are you tired of dealing with the monotony of your life? If yes, it’s time for you to take a break and plan a bike trip to Leh Ladakh so that you can rejuvenate yourself mentally as well as physically. If you are an adventure freak, Leh Ladakh motorcycle trip is ideal for you as it is considered the most challenging road trip in India where you can experience the high-adrenaline rush. 

Once you reach Ladakh, you can explore the region’s highest motorable mountain pass—the Khardzong La Pass riding on your motorbike. The Khardzong La Pass located at an elevation of 18,380 feet above the sea level has well-paved roads to facilitate hassle-free driving. 

Besides this, you can also explore the second highest pass—the Taglang La Pass along the Manali Leh Highway to enjoy the picturesque view of Leh Ladakh’s ethereal surroundings. However, if you are a first -time rider, a ride to Tanglang La Pass can be quite traumatic for you. 

Other highest mountain passes where your bike can cruise over in the region are—the Rohtang Pass, Fatula Pass, Zojila Pass, Baralcha Pass, and Lachungla Pass. As you ride through the high altitude passes, you will discover some rocky, arid and dusty roads full of ruts that will eventually lead you to some stunning lagoons and lakes. 

Other than mountain biking, you can also explore myriad thrilling adventures in this region such as yak safari, camel safari, white river rafting, hiking, trekking, ice hockey, polo, archery, and much more.  What’s more, you also get the opportunity to explore the adorable villages, elegant lakes, breathtaking scenic beauty, wildlife, and local dishes of Leh Ladakh while riding your motorbike.

Additionally, you can also visit countless ancient Buddhist monasteries brimming with elegance, such as the Thikse Monastery, founded in the fourteenth century; the Hemis monastery built in the seventeenth century; the Phugtal Gompa built in the twelfth century; and the 350-years old Diskit Monastery. If you are a spiritually inclined person, a visit to these age-old monasteries in Leh Ladakh will certainly revivify your soul.
