Ladakh Camps And Rides is one of the oldest design trips of Ladakh Bike Rentals which is still on top demand by riders around the world. This tour has the credit of having the best feedbacks from our past riders.
Camps and Rides as the name suggest is the best way to explore the wilderness of Ladakh on Royal Enfield. Earlier we used to host and organize the tour in a way where we chose our own moving camps due to the unavailability of accommodation facilities at the halt locations.
We use to move with two backup vehicles, one for bike and one for kitchen & camping. But we always believe that riders need good showers during the tours but we fail to provide them in most of the places on our campings.
But nowadays due to the growing tourism, it is easy for us to get fixed camps, guest house, and hotels. So we prefer fixed accommodations during the tours.
The tour covers some of the exciting places, and from this year onwards we add newly open routes of Pangong, Chushul & Hanle which is a part of the border route. The ride goes through the so-called world highest pass (Khardong-la) to Hundar and far west to Changthang region towards China border to Pangong & Tsomoriri lake.
Day by Day Plan
We have planned the itinerary in such a way that the routes are full of adventures without repeating the single route again. except 1 hour ride while back from Tsomoriri to Tsokar.
Ladakh Camps and Rides tour is one of the finest fixed departure tours of Ladakh Bike Rentals which start and ends in leh.
Day 1 | Arrive in Leh
MOST AWAITED DAY
A short journey of about 1.5-2 hour flight from Delhi brings you to the beautiful mountains of Leh (3000 Mtr AMSL) the base of our tour, Ladakh Bike Rentals representative will be waiting for you at Kushok Bakula Rinpoche airport Leh for your warm welcome.
The representative will further proceed you to the Hotel and drop you with the small tips about getting acclimatize to high altitude, for your adventurous trip.
Day 2 | Leh – Nubra Valley
Let’s start a day with a proper briefing about motorcycling on high-altitude mountain roads. Today our ride goes towards North Ladakh to beautiful Nubra Valley which comprises many small villages and it was also a part of the Silk Route trade.
Double hump camels are an awesome thing to witness in the region. The crazy and twisty roads of Khardongla (the so-called world’s highest motorable road) is the main aim of the ride and it would be your highest ride and getting a selfie with milestones is the best part of today’s trip. In short, it was the more gravel uphill, easy downhill, and very short open staring route.
Here we skip Hotel & Guesthouses and check for the best camp or resort because the weather will be perfect for camping in Nubra valley.
Day 3 | Nubra – Pangong
NORTH TO EAST
Good Morning all! Today we were on the way towards the China border to explore
Good Morning all! Today we were on the way towards the Indo-China Line of actual control to explore the world-famous Pangong lake. This route is full of adventure via wide open Shayok valley, as we ride on max solid paved roads & sometimes based on temperature rise crossings streams is a part of today’s ride and soon we will be in a local restaurant for hot lunch together and pop up throttle again for the beautiful grazing Pangong lake while knocking beautiful views of Durbuk and Tangtsi village. Evening we will be in Camp which is good enough to spend a night under bright stars.
Day 4 | Pangong Tso to Nyoma
Gear up! Trip kick starts along the lakeside with the fresh breeze of Pangong lake, We were on the newly open road just next to the Indo – China Line of actual control, this would be the best scenic road with very few explorers and you will be amazed at the awesome views of the wild ass. More desert and less patch of metalled roads.
Be wild be free would be the word of the day in this route. Sometimes we add Hanle village as well in the same trip which will be decided on the same day as per your riding energy.
Day 5 | Nyoma to Tso Moriri
ANOTHER EPIC DAY
We were still in the Nomadic part of the Changthang region to explore one more dream lake know as Tsomoriri lake @ 15075 feet above sea level. We were on the tiny highway and soon we reach the check post where the crew will take care of the entry of group members.
From here the Ride goes towards the heart of Rupshu valley the most isolated part of Ladakh. Left indicator crosses us Mahe bridge and lets us on broken sealed road to the sandy track for the fun part of today’s ride. The highly recommended part is, let’s race on the finest track where you can make your own road. Reach Tsomoriri / Korzok where most of the villagers live a traditional nomadic life and enjoy this incredible lake.
Day 6 | Tso Moriri to Leh
A LONG DAY!
Let’s kick early for a back ride towards network zone (Leh) Riding back from the same route up to Sumdo village and turning left we’ll moving towards Leh, keep the throttle high, up to the Polokongka La, 16207 ft and fun ride began till Leh via beautiful brackish lake called TsoKar (14842 ft), where one really feel, I had a ride of my life.
An awesome blend of stark mountains, gorgeous landscape, occasional sightings of the nomadic people, and their herds of yaks & goats are common throughout the route.
Just after crossing the lake we will be on the famous Leh Manali highway and yet still one more pass left to romance through, Taklang-la the second highest motorable pass and by taking not much time with photography we’ll roll down towards Leh crossing through many beautiful small villages and awesome formation of mountains will be in our turning head position and by evening we will be arriving Leh and the evening is celebrated in some of the best restaurants of the town.
