Hence, many of us who do not own a bike relies on bike rentals in Leh – Ladakh. Each year, people like us, who do not own a bike, wait for Leh – Ladakh Motor Bike Rental Association to publish the new rates. The wait is over for Leh – Ladakh bike rental rates 2022-23 season and the bike rental association decides these rules.

What are the Leh Ladakh bike rental rates in 2022?

Unlike the Leh Ladakh Taxi Rates 2022 – 23, Ladakh Motor Bike Rental Association followed a different direction and decided not to hike the bike rental rates for the year 2022-23 for most bikes but some bikes have seen a rise in prices. I strongly feel that the market is getting pricier every year, bikes are always in shortage, and there is always all the fuss of not allowing the outside rental bikes for sightseeing in Ladakh.

I believe the presence of such a motorbike union does help in regulating the rates as standard rates. Every entity in the business has to follow the rules, and rates apply to everyone. So, rate fluctuations are controlled, and tourists understand if they are paying the right price for the rental or not.

Can I get Ladakh Carrier on Rent in Leh?

You should know that the Luggage Carrier / Saddlebag costs Rs 150 extra per day with the bike you will rent.

Can I ride Delhi or Manali bikes in Ladakh?

Bikes rented outside Leh are not allowed for sightseeing inside Ladakh including Pangong Tso, Nubra Valley, Khardung La, etc. Outside rented bikes can only be used to enter Leh from Srinagar – Leh Highway or Manali – Leh Highway.

Hence, for local sightseeing, you need to rent a bike again from a bike rental shop in Leh. To know more about this rule and the present situation, please refer to the link: Bikes Rented Outside Leh Banned in Ladakh.

The Ladakh motorbike rental association has set up check-posts at various sightseeing locations and they are mostly very active in checking especially in season time.

Hence, do not get into an ugly situation in case confronted and at fault. It will most likely ruin your trip and days you took off from the office. The best bet in such cases is to act ignorant of the rule and agree to return to Leh to rent a bike motorbike from Leh for sightseeing.

Some bike rental shops in Manali also have tie-ups with bike rental shops in Leh. In such tie-ups, which are very rare to find as of 2022, if you present back the slip of bike rental charges from Leh shop to Manali guys, then they will waive off 50% of rental charges on their bike rent for those number of days. However, you must verify such tie-ups and get them in writing before striking the deal.

Can I take a relative’s bike or my own bike to Ladakh?

Private bikes are completely allowed to go anywhere in Ladakh. The private bike should be in your name or the name of your father/mother. Mostly if there is any documented proof associated with your and bike owners’ identities, it works.

Can I rent a bike in Manali and drop in Leh or rent a bike for one-way only?

The one-way bike rental is quite costly and leaves a big dent in your pocket. Sometimes like 12K for just the pickup from Manali or Leh. Be sure if you are sure to make that expenditure or if at all the one-way ride is worth the money spent. The same is true for the trip from Leh to Srinagar one-way bike rentals.

My suggestion is unless you are a hardcore biker and cannot live up without a passion for biking, it is not wise to spend that much money just for the pickup of the bike. Better reach Leh from Manali or Srinagar in a taxi and then hire a bike in Leh – Ladakh itself. The roads within Leh – Ladakh provide you with ample adventure opportunities 🙂

I hope this article helps you in understanding the updated bike rental rates in Leh Ladakh. It is welcoming news that the union decided not to increase the rates this year as well. I will also be very interested to understand in case any rules for allowing outside rental bikes have changed or relaxed a bit or not, this year. There will likely be some impact this year. Maybe they are not that enforced stringently but only time will tell 🙂
