Day 2 - Leh - Lamayuru - Leh
After breakfast at the Hotel, we will start our drive to Lamayuru, also known as the Moonland because of the resemblance of its landscape with the Lunar landscape. Lamayuru is also home to one of the biggest and oldest monasteries in the region. Built atop a unique hill in Lamayuru near the Leh-Srinagar Highway, Lamayuru monastery is one of the prime monasteries of the Kagyu school of Tibetan Buddhism in Ladakh.
The road to Lamayuru is smooth with well-laid tarmac and offers a stunning view of the landscape and the mountains. Along the way, we will visit some of the popular destinations along the way like the Hall of Fame, Magnetic Hill, Sangam etc.

Day 3 - Ride from Leh – Khardung La (5602m) – Hunder (4000m)
In the morning after breakfast at the hotel. We will drive northward from Leh to Nubra valley, which is considered one of the most scenic valleys in the entire trans-Himalayan region. The valley boasts a unique landscape with sand dunes, lush green oasis and snow peaks, along with beautiful monasteries and villages. We will be crossing the Khardungla pass (18,380ft), considered the Highest all weather motorable pass in the world. The Pass has become a dream destination for bikes and adventurous souls from all across the world, we can click some photos, grab a hot tea from the cafeteria and start riding towards Nubra valley. We will drive past the North Pullu check post, and through the narrow roads and blind curves to reach Diskit in the afternoon. We will visit the Diskit monastery, and the Maitreya Buddha statue which ideally sits atop a small hill overlooking the valley, the view from there is incredible.
Further, we will drive to the Hunder Sand dunes, which is among the most visited place in Ladakh and also enjoy the camel ride. Nubra is the only place in India where these camels exist.
Overnight stay at Hotel in Nubra
Day 4 - Ride from Nubra – Pangong Tso (4350m)
Today we will drive to the world famous Pangong lake, probably the most famous attraction of Ladakh. It is the largest brackish lake in Asia and the largest overall at this altitude. The road from Nubra to Shayok is very less taken but has to be one of the most scenic trails for motorbiking. There will be some water crossings and offroad stretches which will make it more adventurous and fun.
Once reaching Pangong, we will further ride along the length of the lake towards the Merak, which is ideally the last point up to which a foreigner can go. We will stay at our resort at Merak overlooking the Pangong lake.
Day 5 - Drive from Pangong Tso (4350m) to Leh (3500m)
Early morning, we will wake up to the mesmerising view of sunrise at the lake. The view and tranquillity will surely keep you wanting to come back again and again. The drive will begin soon after, through the nomadic land of Changthang, we may get to see some wild animals freely roaming the wide stretches of Changthang before ascending the Changla pass. Changla pass is once the 2nd highest motorable pass, and still a very tough at times due to extremely bad trails all along. The numerous water streams from the glacier will make it a very adventurous drive. We will descend the Changla pass, and ride to Leh. Overnight stay at Leh.
Day 6 - Departure / Checkout
In the morning after having breakfast, check out from the hotel and leave for the airport or Taxi stand to return back home.
You can ask us to arrange a taxi to Manali/Srinagar or you can choose to stay more days and explore.
