This duration of 15 days or more is apt when one plans their trip from Manali.


Now coming to the favorite part if you are a biker, the bikes!


One must be very critical in selecting their bike. You should be comfortable with your bike. Don’t go for the bike which is popular but go for the bike with which you are most comfortable and which is suitable for the adventure ahead.


Here is a list of some of the bikes, choose according to you choose wisely!


  •                 Royal Enfield– the most popular bike for the Ladakh Bike Trip. It has a 350-500CC engine which is very helpful and needed for the Ladakh tour package. This bike weighs about. This bike can weigh 195 kg so check if you are comfortable with it or not.


  •                 Royal Enfield Himalayan– It has an engine of 400 CC. It can weigh from 191 kg to 199 kg. This bike will make your trip easier.


  •                 KTM Duke– This is a featherweight bike as it weighs about 161 kg to 174 kg. This bike has variants with 390 and 250 CC engines.


  •                 CBR 250 – This bike from Honda is indeed a stunner except for its Contigo tyres which can be a little tough to handle on Ladakh’s terrain in case of a change in weather. On the bright side, if the tyres can be replaced, one can put the bike’s torque and fi technology to great use, and a greater purpose



There are many other bikes in the market that you should test before selecting your final one. Diligent research is required, take advice from experienced people who have been on Ladakh group tour before.



Bikes can be rented from Delhi and Manali as per your choice. In Delhi, rental bikes are available in Karol Bagh which will cost Rs 900 per day with a security deposit of Rs 10,000.

The average rental price in Manali certainly goes up as compared to Delhi. We also recommend taking a professional with you on the trip who can repair bikes.
