Surrounded by barren and arid hills as far as the eye can see, you'll travel to distant destinations in Ladakh, having new adventures and clicking picture-perfect photos.

    You'll visit the multi-coloured lake of Pangong, travel to the sand dunes of Hunder and Sumur, ride through high-altitude passes of Khardung-La and Chang-La, visit the historic monasteries of Thiksey and Diskit, apart from a range of other exciting adventures.

The Ladakhi terrain, flanked by the towering mountains of the Trans-Himalayan range, with snow-capped summits rising far beyond the clouds, is home to one of the most iconic motorbiking routes in the country. With scenic views of the landscape, painted in differing shades of grey and brown, you'll explore faraway villages and secluded landmarks in the region on a 11-day motorbiking itinerary.

You'll take a few days to explore the sand dunes of the Nubra Valley, spend a night by the famous Pangong Lake and travel down to the lush, green valleys of Manali, ending the tour with unforgettable experiences.
