About


Ladakh Road trip is not just another destination in a traveler’s bucket list, but it is a dream in itself. A bike trip to Ladakh doesn’t create stories, it creates CHRONICLES!

Ladakh is a poet’s best poem, a painter’s best painting, and a photographer’s best muse. As the altitude rises, the landscapes en route to Ladakh change like shots of a motion picture. The mighty Himalayan Mountains, pristine glacier lakes, and beautiful valleys together make Ladakh for nature’s wonder that it is.

Manali is every biker’s utopia. Nestled in the scenic state of Himachal Pradesh, Manali offers windy rides and rocky roads that make your bike ride a fulfilling adventure!

Watching your vehicle defy the laws of gravity at the Magnetic Hill, zooming through the treacherous Gata Loops, or riding through KhardungLa Pas, an excursion to Manali-Leh-Manali is the ultimate adventure you can think of.

While biking has been a popular activity, there’s a new addition to the list of ‘things to do in Ladakh’! It is to get a picture clicked on the famous ‘Yellow Scooter’ at the panoramic Pangong Lake.

So for how long are you just gonna read about the wonders of the Manali-Ladakh road trip? It’s time to tick these activities off your bucket list with Manali to Ladakh bike trip experience for 2021! Go on and create your own bike trail Chronicles!
