Leh Ladakh Tours

The Kashmir valley for centuries has been called the 'heaven on earth'. Ladakh particularly is a spiritual realisation of a dream. Here the brown mountains break into fantasy colours -  as you look closer at the bright green oasis around villages in the river valleys. Centuries old monasteries, perched over rock cliffs, cradle the ancient traditions of mystical Buddhism, exquisite frescoes and priceless thangkas.

This highest cold desert in the world is a journey of self-discovery at altitudes exceeding 12000 ft above mean sea level. You pass the deep river gorges as you explore to the world's highest motorable pass- the Khardung La.
This route is surely one of the toughest motorcycle rides anywhere in the world. The Viktorianz bring you a ride that would leave you mesmerised. A life changing journey it will be.

Did you know that the road leading to Ladakh is the same trail that was used by caravans going to the Silk Route centuries and centuries ago? If this isn’t awe inspiring enough, the roads leading into the region are only open four months of the year – for the remaining eight, they are covered in snow.

For many riders, the highlight of bike tours to Leh Ladakh is Khardung-La, the highest motorable road in the world. To pass from Leh into the Nubra Valley, you will need to drive your motorcycle along a road that sits at 18,380 feet. It is surely an exhilarating experience. For any consultation, advice or customisation do speak to our Ladakh expert Ankit Jaiswal on +91-7011 453 442 . 

Is altitude sickness a problem?

Because the Ladakh region is so high in the mountains, we recommend driving in prior to start of your tour, as this will save you two or three days of acclimatisation. If you choose to fly into the area, we recommend arriving a few days early to avoid being hindered by sickness.

Is petrol easy to come by?

It is important to remember that petrol pumps are few and far between in this region. When travelling between Manali and Leh, for example, the next pump after Keylong is 365 kilometres away! It is for this reason that you must plan meticulously to avoid being caught out with an empty tank.

"Col Mike mixes the adventure, nature and culture so well in his conduct of riding expeditions. We were very impressed with his deep knowledge of the local area and his military type of conduct of rides. His 24 years of experience in Indian Army comes in Handy at all times during the trip. He sure is one very reliable bike trip leader in India. I would go with him anytime and many times. "

Kapil Singh

"I have known Mike as bikers for a long time. Their expertise at conducting the Kashmir-Ladakh-Manali motorcycle tours is exemplary. They are definitely a cut above the run of the mill Indian companies. Their meticulous planning of trip, eye for details, deep knowledge of Kashmiri and Ladakhi culture and handcrafted experiences all make their trips very unique. Their trips are well priced and every bit is a great value offered for the money spent. Being an ex Army Colonel he is a great ease and comfort in those terrains. Their standards of operational conduct is definitely very high- a 5 on 5."

Ajay Raina, N Delhi

"This trip is a bike rider's delight as well as a gastronomic one. Thai dishes with Singha-aa haa.. The evenings were chillin. The roads were splendid to drive on and the Honda CB500X felt like a Merc. Accommodations at all halts were perfect. It seems Manoj has taken the pain of organizing every little thing. Bobby was a very useful guide since he spoke, read and wrote Thai. His knowledge of everything Thai was mind blowing. The bikes were in excellent condition, and I would rate this ride anyday a 5 on 5 experience.Cheers Manoj, you are such a Gentleman. I will keep doing your rides !!"

John, Capetown

"I would rate this trip undoubtedly 5 out of 5. ( i would have even given a 10 out of 5 ) because it was outstanding. We felt very well taken care of and thank you for everything you have done for us on the trip. We could not ask for more. Manoj thanks again for this wonderful vacation. Words cannot express how we felt on this vacation. God bless you on all your ventures and with your attitude i am very certain you will go a long way."

We stay overnight in a typical high altitude Ladakhi village in Nubra valley - Hunder or Sumur.

Its a lake that extends deep into China with only one-third with India. And a night by the lakeside camp is an experience of lifetime. 

Day 7 - Ride back to Leh

Having done Pangong Tso - now its time to return back to Leh for your last evening in Ladakh. You could spend the time collecting some memorablia from Leh town, or just have a easy evening looking back at your time spent in this wonderful part of the world. These memories will surely keep coming back to you. If you wish to extend your trip and see Tso Moriri Lake - please talk to us well in advance ...
