There are a total of 3 ways in which you can enjoy a trip to Ladakh:
1. Leh Ladakh Road Trip
2. Leh Ladakh Bike Trip
3. Leh Cycle Trip (No! We're not joking, you can check it out on the web.)
Also, there are three ways in which you can complete the Leh Circuit:
1. Leh to Leh
2. Manali to Leh to Srinagar
3. Srinagar to Leh to Manali
So there are total nine ways in which you can explore Leh Ladakh. Packages for the same are available here:
The standard best bike which can be used on a leh ladakh bike trip has to be the Royal Enfield Himalayan and any other equvilaent bike coming in the 500CC zone.
Any bike which is having a good control, comfort and engine above 350 CC+ for single rider and 500CC+ for dual rider is considered more than enough. Make sure to carry spare parts and accessories for your bike in case of a breakdown. Bikes from Royal Enfield's serves the purpose.
The primary thing to be prepared for Leh Ladakh Bike Trip is having a basic knowledge of the terrain, maps, bike mechanism and more.
Ladakh is a cold desert and the condition changes there from minute to minute, so being prepared is the only best thing that you can do. There is no network, so you cannot call anybody else for help and have to rely on your own.
Keep a daypack with all your essentials such as medication including Diamox for AMS, small oxyzen cylinder, water bag and more. Be sure to get to know around your bike and how to tackle some comman emergencies. Also, take a physical map of the terrain and make sure that you know how to use the same.
Since we told you many a times that it is a hard terrain to march upon then you should be taking good care of your health as well and you should maintain a basic fitness level for the same as well.
The best bikes suggested for Leh Ladakh Trip from Kerala are:
1. Royal Enfield Classic 350CC
2. Royal Enfield Himalayan 400CC
3. Royal Enfield Thunderbird 500CC
Note: Royal Enfield's are the most preferred bikes in the terrain as the spare parts for the same are more readily available than any other bike manufacturer.
The fatality rate for Leh Ladakh Trip is quite low but it is still not advisibale to go on a solo adventure in the same terrain. The reason being that it is a cold deserted area where if you're stuck with some tragedy, you'll neither have network to call up help and not many people will pass you by. In short, you'll be stuck and that increases the chances of something bad turning up. Which is why you're advised to always go in batches with an organised provider.
The three Leh ladakh bike trip route are as follows:
- Manali to Leh to Manali (12 days)
- Manali to Leh to Srinagar or visa versa (12 days)
- Leh to Leh ( 6 days)
If it starts raining slowly while trekking then we will continue our trek as per the plan. Your poncho will keep you dry. In case if it is raining heavily then we will try to find any shelter and wait for the rain to stop or slow. If it rains at the campsite then there would not be any problem because all our living tents, kitchen tents, and toilet tents are waterproof. You will stay dry inside.
It depends on the difficulty level of the trek/trip. The minimum age for eligibility is 14 years.
Well, it totally depends on person to person. Usually, there are no side effects of Diamox but if you are having any prior medical conditions then it is better to consult your doctor for the same. Our itinerary is designed in a way that we take sufficient time to get acclimatized. In case if you are having problems on the trip then please consult with your trip leader about your condition as soon as possible.
Leh Ladakh Bike Trip Best Time is from June to September because, during the rest of the months, the passes remain closed. So it is impossible for a biker to do a bike trip to Ladakh during that time.
Although it is safe to Ladakh bike trip from Srinagar, it depends on the situation on the international borders. Sometimes we have faced roadblocks around Srinagar if the situation is not conducive for the trip.
If you are planning your trip in the month of June then there are a lot more chances that you will get to see snow. After that in July, the chances are a little low and henceforth. But you might witness snowfall on any of the passes due to the reason that snowfall totally depends on the weather on the day and a little bit on your luck.
Leh-Ladakh region is accessible only in the Months of June, July, August, and September for bikers or even for people who are traveling from Manali or Srinagar. The reason being the harsh weather and heavy snowfall during the other months which result in the closure of all the passes connecting Manali to Leh and similarly Srinagar to Leh. Once the weather improves during the summer months, the snow on the passes melts making it clear for vehicles to pass and finally being able to reach Leh by Manali or Srinagar.
Yes, it is advisable that you carry your own medication on the Leh-Ladakh Tour. Although, for common symptoms and even more, we have first aid boxes and all our trip leads have basic knowledge about basic paramedics practices.
Due to the army movement, the BRO ( Border Road Organization) always tries to maintain the roads. Which is why the roads are really good, but then there are also some patches which might not be that smooth but are loved by off roading enthusiasts. It will be about 50% tar road and 50% off-roading in general terms.
Individuals have done these kinds of trips even on their bicycles or 100 CC bikes such as Splendor or similar ones. But some of the comfortable bikes are majorly royal Enfield 350 CC, Royal Enfield 500 CC, and Himalayan. If you're riding solo then 350 CC or above will be a comfortable choice and the same goes with 500 CC and above for dual rider.
No, currently there is no train till Leh or any other location in Ladakh.
Last petrol pump in the Manali-Leh route is at Tandi and ten few kilometers before reaching Leh. In our group departures we carry extra fuel in the backup vehicle, for riders doing it on their own, make sure you get your bike fuelled at Manali, then refueled again at Tandi, and always keep 10 liters of fuel for the back up in the extra canisters and always top up your tanks in the morning before starting your ride.
Leh-Ladakh bike trip is not as easy as it seems. On this bike ride, we ride about 6 to 7 hours, 150 to 180 kilometers per day for 10-12 days depending on the Itinerary. A good level of fitness is required else it will become extremely difficult in the latter days of the trip.
Symptoms tend to occur within hours after arrival at a high altitude and include headache, nausea, shortness of breath, and inability to exercise.
During day time, for the months from June to September the average temperature will be around 25 degrees and at night it can as low as 5 degrees.
Always start early in the morning as the streams are low on water and the traffic en route will also be less. This way you will reach your destination before sunset and will have ample time to explore the nearby places.
The cases are mild but in some cases, they can life-threatening also in proper measures are not taken.
The chances are very less only if you acclimatize your body properly before ascending.
The toilet facilities are good as you will also get the proper toilet with running water facilities even in the camps.
You will have to ride about 6 to 7 hours per day.
AMS or Acute Mountain Sickness is the Physical distress from difficulty adjusting to lower oxygen pressure at high altitudes.
If you are planning a bike ride from Manali or Srinagar then it will need about 10-12 days. If flying directly to Leh, a minimum of 6 days will be required. Rest depends on the number of days that you have coz there are many locations that you would want to stay a day or two extra.
You will not get rain in Leh and region as it is a cold desert.
You will get electricity in all place except Pangong.
Yes! You can pay via credit/debit card.
Proper riding gear should be there and always try to get waterproof shoes as you will be crossing several river streams. Carry clothes which can keep you warm even at -5 degrees as it generally gets cold and windy at nights and also at the passes.
It depends on the seriousness of the condition. Consult a doctor before planning to go on these kinds of trips.
Yes you should as the region is situated in a very high region and the oxygen is less. So yes any kind of medical history can be affected.
In Leh, you can get 5-star hotels but the in places like Jispa Sarchu Nubra Pangong hotels are not good but yes camps are are fascinating.
Driving license, bike papers and any additional document related to your vehicle should be carried by you.
Clutch wire, acceleration wire, brake pads, puncture kit, are the main essentials which you should carry with you at all times. Not forgetting the canisters for extra fuel.
Small oxygen cans do not provide much support as they do not last for a long time. They can mentally psych you up only. Hence, you need to carry medium to large-sized oxygen cylinders which help to restore your dropped oxygen levels back to safety. This buys you time only and is not a cure for AMS.
BSNL is the best in Ladakh.
It is because when Ladakh was in the Jammu and Kashmir then because of the conflicts the network you to shut every now and then.
Yes! You can avail of atm services in Leh but it's is not that readily available. So, you're advised to carry cash for most part of the trip.

July to august is a good time for a smooth ride.
June and September is the best time for the rough ride as they pass opens and the road are gems for adventure riders.
We prefer a smaller group size consisting of only 15-18 participants. The reason being that smaller batches are better in terms of collaborative group experience and trip coordination as well. You’re more likely to gel up with everybody in a short group as compared to a group that has more participants in number.
Always try to avoid all kind of electric work on the bike, If important then get it done by the company service center.

Why Ladakh is The Best Destination for Biking?
Ladakh is the one destination in India that everyone wishes to go to at least once in their life. It is a place full of captivating and raw beauty that stays etched in the mind forever.
This modest land of Ladakh is located in Jammu and Kashmir. It is surrounded by the great snow-capped mountains of Kunlun to the north and Himalayas to the south, creating the perfect panoramic view.
The region is lightly inhabited, leading to a safe and pristine atmosphere as the environmental conditions are very harsh and the temperatures drop to minus 35° C. You will be at the very door of heaven once you arrive in Ladakh. The best part is to get caught up in nature with a clear blue sky, vast cold-desert landscapes, ice-covered mountains and a sweet mountain breeze against your skin.
