Then we will ride downhill till Koksar Bridge. In the way
we will come across some scenic views of snow-covered peaks
and Glaciers. As we descend there is change in vegetation,
the tree line seems to be getting away from us making way
for small bushes. We are in the foothills of the
range. After crossing the check post we will follow the
river flow till Tandi. At certain points we will abandon
the bank, then climb uphill but we will be moving more or
less along the river. We will encounter some unmetalled
stretches of road today after
Gondla and cross a few mountain streams flowing over the road. We will
spend night at Gondla.

town. As we ascend the serpentine road into a
gorge we will come across
Gemur. As we come out of the gorge
and descend downhill we will reach the
Jispa hamlet town.
It's again a green belt for sometime where we will see many
shepherds and their sheep scattered on the hillsides. We
are almost in the Land of Lamas now. After crossing Jispa
one is definitely in an isolated region & in far horizon
we can distinctively see the bareness of the Higher Himalayan
ranges. We will spend night at Darcha.
Darcha can be
considered the gateway to the Higher Himalayas.

Bar as we move into the harsh terrain of the arid mountains.

Today we will start our day with an easy ride on a flat
road, and then we will ride downhill and then enter a gorge
descending down the bridge connected to the
We will cross the bridge and then we will ascend a small
uphill road. We will come across some arid landscapes with
some beautiful scenery and high-rise mountain ranges, bearing
watermarks & erosion of soil clearly indicating that
the area was under water a few million years ago. The area
is sparsely green. We are at the Traffic Check Post, which
is the entry point into
Ladakh. We will spend night
at Brandy Nallah.
7: Brandy Nallah - Gata loops - Naki la -
LachungLa - Pang

Gata loops, 23 hairpin bends bringing us top of the mountain
feature. We will ride up hill, over an easy slope only to
cross the Naki La pass, descend down into the gorge to an
isolated military garrison area & then ascend again
to the height of the Lachulung la - 5065 m. After
we are now almost on an unmetalled stretch of gravelly road
all the way inside the gorge of Pang.
8: Pang - More Plains - Tanglangla (Base Camp)
In the morning from the Bowl like feature of Pang we will
ascend uphill and come to the plateau area of the More Plains.
Changpas, the Nomadic people who tend their yaks here and
few Wild Ass are the only sign of life on this isolated
and long road. This belt is barren and known for its fast
blowing winds, sandstorms & extreme temperatures in
the early morning and evenings. Fresh stream water can be
considered a scarcity in this area though we might find
some isolated mountain streams flowing down from the
The ride is easy going, being a flat plateau area, but the
road, which stretches on ahead, is not as smooth as it looks.
We will spend night in Tanglangla.
9: Tanglangla - Rumtse
In the morning we will proceed early to scale the World's
second highest pass, Tanglang la - 5360 m. The ride for
the next 17 km is a challenge for even the fittest of riders,
weather being cold early in the morning with gravelly stretches
of the road consuming extra energy. After reaching there
we will descend down the hill till the base of the Pass.
After crossing a small mountain river it is time to find civilisation again. The greenery changes the landscape,
and the red coloured mountains surrounding us and reflected
in the river only add to the beauty as we hit
10: Rumtse - Upshi - Karu - Leh
In the morning we will ride on long stretches of roads and
cross over the Upshi Bridge on the
River Indus. The river
originates in China and crosses over into India somewhere
in the higher regions of these Great
Himalayan Ranges. The
road condition improves considerably as we follow more traffic
from the cantonment area & local villages going to
We will reach the
Thiksey Monastery and the Chortens Garden
before we finally enter Leh Town. The ride is easy and so
we will reach Leh by evening. We will spend night in Leh.
This day is free for leisure activities and relaxation.
Leh - Khardungla Pass - Leh
In the morning we will start our journey early from Leh
till the North Pullu Check Post with some easy uphill ride.
After North Pullu one has to gear up more as the roads are
under maintenance and construction but reaching the top
is worth every bit of the effort and sweat.
Khardung la Pass
is the highest motor able pass in the world, and not many
dare to bicycle their way up to 18380 feet and from here
we will drive back to Leh.
