Leh-Ladakh iis a biker’s paradise. Ladakh is on every backpackers/travel enthusiasts list of places to visit in India before 30. Riding on the crazy bent roads, getting stuck in the middle of nowhere,learning to be independent on the desert mountains are few of the experiences in Leh-Ladakh.
A major highlight of the tour is a visit to the Golden Temple in Amritsar where we may see the early evening Granth Sahib ceremony. There is time to explore the hill stations of both Dharamshala, homes to the exiled Dalai Lama and Manali, famous for its ancient wooden temples. Manali to Leh highway across the Great Himalayan Range, the world's second highest road is rugged and only tackled by adventurous travelers. The high mountain passes are incredibly beautiful, though also steep and daunting
This awesome wildness and magic belongs to that great land of towering mountains and Buddhist simplicity-Ladakh.
Ladakh, the land of jagged peaks and barren landscape is alluring and awe-inspiring. Hidden behind this harsh and forbidding façade is an ancient civilization and captivating people.
