Ladakh is every traveler's dream destination. Irrespective of the gender, age or any other aspects, going on a Leh Ladakh bike trip is on every adventure lover's bucket list. But sadly a lot of travelers are not aware of different itineraries and routes to this dream location.

This blog is to help the readers to help understand one of the Leh itineraries in detail and decide on booking their Leh Ladakh tour package.



But before starting, here's something you should know about Leh:


Situated at an altitude of 12,000ft, in ancient times Leh was the capital of the Kingdom of Ladakh. This barren heaven


Day 1: Arrival in Leh


This is going to be your Day 1, the most important day of the trip when your body is getting adjusted to the sudden altitude change and your heart is getting welcomed with the culture and tradition of this beautiful place. We advise you to take care of your body and health and try to explore all the nearby places. Visit Shanti Stupa and chill in the panoramic view of Leh. Explore places by wandering on your own, understand the culture, interact with local people and just relax, because the trip has just begun.



Day 2: The Confluence of Indus-Zanskar River


Zanskar is the new hot-spot of Leh Ladakh road trip. The majestic view of the confluence of Zanskar and Indus is not something you get to witness every day. When the two different shades of the rivers meet, it becomes a pleasant and serene view to experience. Apart from this, the Gurudwara Pathar Sahib and the Magnetic Hill is there to keep your peaceful and spiritual vibe of the day going on.



Day 3 – Nubra Valley & Khardung La


Now is the day when the trip is going to go adventurous and things are getting exciting for the bike lovers. This day, you'll be taken to the World's highest civilian motorable pass, Khardung La and after which you'll be enjoying the white sand dunes of Hundar. Don't forget about the fun camel rides in these beautiful sand dunes. And yes, stargazing in Nubra Valley is not included in the itinerary but without it no trip is complete. Is it?



Day 4: Nubra & Turtuk


Just like Zanskar, Turtuk is the new hot trending place on the list of all travellers. It is a joy that our Leh itinerary includes this majestic place. Driving to Turtuk is the highlight of this trip, and why will it not be? This route takes the visitor past the picturesque villages of Shey and Thiksey and turns off the Indus valley by the side valley of Chemrey and Shakti. And Ending the day in the beautiful Nubra Valley is the best way to sign off from this day.



Day 5: Pangong Tso Lake


Is there anyone who has visited Leh and Ladakh but not the Pangong Lake? We can assure you that there exists no enthusiastic traveller who hasn't visited the iconic Pangong Lake. The speciality of Pangong Lake is that it is an endorheic lake that does not flow into the sea and also changes its colour several times in a day. You can spend your day with the beautiful visuals of Pangong Lake and immerse in its beauty.




Day 6 – Back to Leh


This is one of the most difficult parts about a trip, that it is coming to an end. The last day is all about absorbing every last bit of the beautiful destination and memories. This day you can visit the Big Buddha at Thiksey Monastery and also go on a shopping spree and buy souvenirs for your friends and family. Stay in Leh for the night and leave back for your home the next day.


If this itinerary seems like your cup of tea, go ahead with it and book your Ladakh package now and go on a Ladakh trip as soon as you get some days off from your daily routine. We wish you luck and a happy Leh trip!
