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.

Always keeping you high on adrenaline, an adventure trip to Ladakh through the world’s highest passes rewards you with the most breathtaking views you could ever imagine.

Watching your vehicle defy the laws of gravity at the Magnetic Hill, zooming through the treacherous Gata Loops, or riding through KhardungLa Pass, a trip to Ladakh 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 Ladakh? It’s time to tick these activities off your bucket list with the Leh Ladakh Bike trip for 2021! Go on and create your own Ladakh Chronicles!
