Day 1

| Leh Ladakh

Arrive Leh and drive to the hotel. Most of Ladakh is at an altitude of more than 3000m so you need to get acclimatized before you can set out to travel. Your body needs to adapt to high altitude, as the higher you go, the air becomes rarified and the oxygen available for you to breathe becomes lesser. Even though your body can adapt to 'thin air', you need to give it time to do so. This is what is called acclimatization.

Acclimatization is essential to avoid acute mountain sickness (AMS). The symptoms include headache, lethargy, dizziness, and loss of appetite. You must allow a full day of complete bed rest for acclimatizing to the high altitude and low level of oxygen. High altitude sickness or Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a serious condition that can happen to anyone at altitudes above 3000 meters or 10000 feet.

Evening meet your motorbike crew and tour leader and get a briefing on the tour. Test ride the bikes to get familiar with the machines. Visit Shanti stupa - sitting majestically on a hilltop in Ladakh. It was built to promote world peace and prosperity and to commemorate 2500 years of Buddhism. It is considered a symbol of the ties between the people of Japan and Ladakh. The Shanti Stupa holds the relics of the Buddha at its base. This elegant stupa is situated on a hilltop in Chanspa. The beautiful positioning of this stupa provides a breath-taking panoramic view of the surrounding landscape. Overnight at hotel in Leh.

Day 2

| Leh Ladakh

Morning ride on the Leh – Srinagar Highway to visit Alchi monastery. Enroute visit the following:

The Shrine known as Gurdwara Patthar sahib is situated about 25 kms. Short of Leh town on the Leh-Srinagar Road. Built in the everlasting memory of Shri Guru Nanak Deve Ji the great prophet who sanctified the place by his sacred visit during the year 1517 while on his second missionary tour (2nd Udassi 1515-1518). The Guru reached here via Nepal, Sikkim, Tibet Yarkand and Leh after having spiritual discourses with the sidhas at Mount Sumer (Central Himalayas).

On way to Sham Valley before Nimmo village one can have this magnificent view of two rivers in wed lock at the confluence of the Indus and Zanskar rivers. In seasons they have different colours and flow and wildness.

70 Kms from Leh, on the banks of the Indus, is the Alchi Gompa dating a thousand years back. One of its walls features thousands of miniature sized pictures of the Buddha. Three large sized images made of clay and painted brightly are its focal attractions. No longer an active religious centre, it is looked after by monks from the Liker monastery. This is the only monastery amongst 34 monasteries, which is not located on a hilltop.

Enjoy your evening at the Resort.

Visit this glorious museum located near the Leh Airport, approximately 4 km from Leh city. It was built in memory of the brave soldiers who lost their lives in Indo-Pakistan war. Maintained by the Indian Army, the museum showcases seized arms and amenities of Pakistani Army, pictures, and biographies of brave soldiers. A section of the museum also displays Siachen area exhibiting apparel and amenities used by the Indian Army in the region. Apart from this, one can also witness items related to Ladakhi culture, history, vegetation, and wildlife found across the globe.

Day 3

| Leh Ladakh

Nubra is a tri-armed valley located to the northeast of Ladakh valley. Diskit the capital of Nubra is about 150 km north from Leh town, the capital of Ladakh district, India. Local scholars say that its original name was Ldumra (the valley of flowers). The Shyok River meets the Nubra or Siachan River to form a large valley that separates the Ladakh and Karakoram Ranges. The Shyok river is a tributary of the Indus River. The average altitude of the valley is about 10,000 ft. i.e. 3048 metres above the sea level.

You will climb the world’s highest motorable road – Khardungla Pass at 5,602 m (18,80 ft) to reach Nubra.

Khardung La (Khardung Pass, la means pass in Tibetan) is a high mountain pass located in Ladakh region. The pass on the Ladakh Range lies north of Leh and is the gateway to the Shyok and Nubra valleys. The Siachen Glacier lies partway up the latter valley. Built in 1976, it was opened to motor vehicles in 1988 and has since seen many automobiles, motorbike, and mountain biking expeditions. The pass is strategically important to India as it is used to carry supplies to the Siachen Glacier. Khardung La was historically important as it lies on the major caravan route from Leh to Kashgar in Central Asia. About 10,000 horses and camels used to take the route annually, and a small population of Bactrian camels can still be seen at Hunder, in the area north of the pass. Khardung La is situated 39 km by road from Leh.

Diskit Monastery is a 350-year-old monastery situated in the Village of Diskit. Tourists must visit this monastery that is located at an elevation of 10310 ft above sea level. The village of Diskit acts as an administrative centre to the Nubra Valley and houses many government offices. The Diskit Monastery or Diskit Gompa is the prime attraction of the village. It is considered as one of the largest and oldest Buddhist monasteries in the Nubra Valley. The Diskit Monastery was founded in the 14th century by a disciple of Tsong Khapa, Changzem Tserab Zangpo. This gompa enshrines a Maitreya Buddha statue, paintings, and drums. Visitors can explore a beautiful wall painting at the centre of this monastery, which displays the Tashilhunpo Gompa of Tibet. Kangyu-lang and Tsangyu-lang are two of the shrines found inside the monastery. Moreover, numerous Tibetan and Mongolian texts have been kept in its storehouse. The Diskit Gompa is home to nearly 100 monks who have come from different parts of the globe.

Beautiful but remote, Hunder village sits like an oasis in the middle of cold desert in Nubra valley of Jammu and Kashmir. Nubra has acquired fame for its sand dunes, the cold desert that surrounds it, Bactrian camels and its breath-taking natural beauty. Native to the steppes of central Asia, the Bactrian camel has two humps, in contrast to the single-humped camels found in Rajasthan and other parts of India. The Bactrian camels were the main mode of transport when Ladakh was an important stopover on the ancient trade routes with Central Asia. Joyrides on the Bactrian camel through the sand dunes is a must do for the tourists. The region has forests of sea-buckthorn, a medicinal plant rich in biomolecules, vitamins and nutritive properties and popularly known as Leh Berry.

Day 4

| Nubra

After your breakfast in Nubra ride back till Khalsar and soon after turning left our ride goes towards world famous Pangong Lake to catch the beautiful view of tranquil lake. This route is full of adventure as we ride on solid paved & rough roads & crossings stream too along Shyok river and while knocking beautiful views of Durbuk and Tangtse village, soon we have our first view of Pangong lake.

Pangong Lake is situated on the Indo China border at 14,000 feet (4,267 M). A long narrow basin of inland drainage, hardly six to seven kilometres at its widest point to which foreigners are permitted, is only some seven km along the southern shore from the head of the lake, but it affords spectacular views of the mountains of the Changchenmo range to the north, their reflection shimmering in the ever-changing blues and greens of the lakes brackish water. Above Spangmik are the glacier and snow-capped peaks of the Pangong range.

Day 5

| Pangong

Enjoy the sunrise view of the Lake and after a great breakfast, ride back to Leh crossing the mighty Changla pass (18,000 feet / 5,475 M) and then visit the Thiksey Monastery. The Thiksey Monastery is a fort monastery that houses about 60 monks. Resting on top of a hill at an altitude of 3,600 meters (11,811 feet) in the Indus Valley, this Gelugpa (Yellow Hat) Buddhist monastery is a 12-storey complex with a precious collection of murals, thangkas, stupas, statues, and swords. This is the most important monastery in Ladakh and governs ten more monasteries under it. Built on a supposedly sacred hill in the mid-15th century by the Gelugpa monk Palden Sangpo, Thiksey saw the addition of the Maitreya temple, with a 15 meters (49 feet) Maitreya statue in 1970. The statue, which is constructed out of clay, copper, and gold paint, is the largest of its kind in Ladakh and occupies two levels of the complex. Painted in red, yellow-ochre, and white, this fort monastery offers some amazing views of the Shey Palace and the Stok Palace across the Indus Valley flood plain.

Day 6

| Leh Ladakh

Lastly you can enjoy shopping for curios and souvenirs in the bazaars and markets of Leh, while on your tour of Ladakh. Popular items with tourists are Pashmina shawls, stoles, and other Pashmina wool garments. Locally handmade woollen socks, gloves, caps, and sweaters are a favourite of tourists in Ladakh. Tibetan handicraft items including prayer wheels, Buddhist masks and Thangka paintings can be purchased in Ladakh. Tibetan silver jewellery and traditional Ladakhi jewellery with turquoise are also popular with tourists.

Apricots that grow abundantly in Ladakh are another popular gift that you can take back as a delicious souvenir of your trip to Ladakh. Hand-woven rugs, carpets and shawls are available in a range of prices in Ladakh's markets. The carpets have floral or geometric designs or dragon motifs on them and can also be hung as decorative wall hangings. Woven in wool gathered from Ladakhi goats, and dyed with natural dyes, Ladakhi carpets and rugs are thick, long-lasting and objects of utility and beauty, which you can buy while shopping in Ladakh.
