Detailed Itinerary

The road for cycling trip from Manali to Leh is the most picturesque of them all, says every traveller who has visited these regions! Manali, close to the Kullu valley, is a charming hill station-town that encompasses all of amazing weather, generous locals, super alpine views, meandering trekking trails and numerous adventure sports. From here, the highway towards Leh is known as a biker's paradise. En route, the quintessential villages of Koksar, Darcha, Sarchu, Takh, Pang, Tsokar and Lhato are chosen as places of stay due to their pristine environments, via the high altitude mountain passes of Rohtang and Khardung. The latter, Khardung La, known to man as the highest motorable road in the world (5,602m) is a gem of the Ladakh valley. Not only biking, but there are, very often, treks and hikes offered to these areas. The splendour of Leh lies in its closeness to the Himalayan Ranges, the royalty of its monasteries and stupas and its rivers, like the Zanskar, teeming with life.
