Leh Ladakh Bike Trip Guide

A Leh Ladakh bike trip is probably at the top of the wish list for every biker in India. The city of Leh, flanked on all sides by the Himalayas, is one of the most highly rated travel destinations across the world. But what makes it even better, is doing it by road.

The route is filled with barren mountain slopes of the Great Himalayan and Karakoram ranges, snow-clad peaks, monasteries, challenging roads, and other mesmerizing views which will compel you to stop for a picture on every turn....

The Manali-Leh highway is the more popular of the two, owing to the number of mountains passes, and rivers along the way. The distance from Manali to Leh is 490 kilometers. The highway is built and maintained by the Border Roads Organization, a part of the Indian Army. The iconic Rohtang pass lies on this route on the Pir Panjal range, connecting Kullu, Lahaul and Spiti. Sarchu is the mid-point between Manali and Leh, however, Keylong is the preferred halting point on this highway while travelling from Manali to Leh, as Sarchu is at a considerably higher altitude.

Although the routes are open for tourists from May, a road trip to Leh can be hampered by road blockages due to heavy snowfall at Rohtang and Baralacha passes till early June. Also, there is a probability of roadblocks due to landslides during the monsoon in June which can cause unplanned delays on the ride.

The Srinagar-Leh highway, also called National Highway – 1D is 434 kilometers long. It is connected to Leh-Ladakh via the Kashmir Valley. This is the more reliable of the two highways, as there are plenty of options for accommodation and re-fueling as compared to the Manali-Leh highway. Sonmarg, Zojila pass, Kargil, and a few monasteries, are the major attractions on this highway.

Top Places to Visit Leh Ladakh

Thiksey Monastery is the majestic 12-storey Buddhist religious site that is home to over 500 disciples. Being amongst the prominent monasteries in Ladakh, the place welcomes devotees, travelers, and visitors open heartedly. This gompa is an ideal place to give a closer look to the exquisite Buddhist culture and beliefs, rare scriptures of the bygone era, and more.

It is about 150 km from Leh, and is called the Orchard of Ladakh. The place was called Ldumra in the earlier times which means the ‘valley of flowers.’

Ladakh Bike Tour Guide:

There are quite a few things that you’ll need to consider while planning for a Leh Ladakh bike trip. First and foremost is, the time of the year. The road to Leh is open for tourists from May to October. Although, roads may be blocked due to landslides and snowfall in May. Although vehicles not registered under the Himachal Pradesh government are banned on the Manali-Rohtang pass, there is no restriction on bikes.

It is imperative to carry all documents of personal identification and bike registration. Additionally, both the highways have a few check posts along the way, and you have to register yourself and your bike at these check posts and display your permits wherever required for security reasons.

A Leh Ladakh bike ride takes skill as the terrain is difficult, and oxygen levels are thinner than usual. You need to be an experienced rider before undertaking this journey. You ought to learn fixes for common problems, and about the maintenance of the bike, as the mechanical shops would be hard to find. Make sure that your bike is serviced, and prepared before you begin the ride. Do not forget to carry a basic repair kit for fixing minor glitches on the road by yourself.

Things to Carry on Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

The following are the important items that you must surely carry on your Leh Ladakh bike trip for a safe and comfortable experience:

  • Medicines:  Moove/Iodex, Dettol/ Savlon, Headache Medicine, Dizziness and body pain Medicine, Disprin/Aspirin, Band-Aids, Medicine to suffice lack of oxygen, Imodium, Diamox, Stomach ache medicine, hand sanitizers, extra pair of masks, disinfectants

  • Utilities: Torch with chargeable cells, Swiss Knife, Water bottle, Extra bag
  • Eateries: Carry glucose, sweet bites, chocolates, dry fruits

Eligibility for Bike Trip of Leh Ladakh

A Ladakh trip is challenging, and without necessary precautions, can lead to a few health issues. To add to it, a bike trip would hold even more challenges. Hence, it is necessary to include a few important points in your plan to ensure a fun-filled and safe trip. Acute Mountain Sickness (AMS) is a common occurrence in the mountains, and it is necessary that you take at least a day to acclimatize to the higher altitudes. Do not underestimate the distances while planning. Due to the higher altitudes and bad roads, it would be difficult to cover a higher distance in a single day. Even if you can do 1000 kilometers in a day on highways, do not plan to cover 300-400 kilometers in the mountains in one go. Avoid alcohol consumption, and smoking. It adversely affects the breathing ability which may cause you to suffer from AMS.

It is not advisable for first timers to do a Leh Ladakh bike ride. Everything about the terrain is hostile if you are an inexperienced rider, the road conditions, the cold weather, and difficulty in breathing. These conditions are challenging even for the most seasoned riders. Plan the entire trip before-hand, with your breaks, overnight halts, kilometers to ride each day, and reserve days. Don’t rush on the road trip, and do not go unplanned.

Best Bike for Leh Ladakh Trip

Till a few years ago, when you thought about a Leh Ladakh bike trip, you would think of a Royal Enfield. But with the introduction of new bikes in the touring segment, the biking fraternity is spoilt for choices. The choice of bike depends on various factors, the number of days and distance you intend to ride, the weight of your luggage, and also, if you have a pillion with you. Another important factor that you need to consider is the fuel capacity, and the distance covered on a full tank. Since the mileage reduces at higher altitudes, it is necessary to have fuel cans with you to avoid being stranded in the middle of nowhere.

Any bike would need to be serviced thoroughly, and the rider must be used to riding long distances on it. There are instances where people have ridden something as simple as a Hero Honda Splendor and come back with great stories.

Let’s look at a few bikes that can make your ride comfortable:

1. Royal Enfield

Both the 350 cc and the 500 cc variants of Royal Enfield, including the Classic and Thunderbird, have been extensively used by riders for a Leh Ladakh trip. The latest addition to the adventure tourer section, the Himalayan, is marketed as the bike for a Leh Ladakh bike trip. These bikes offer a good amount of pillion comfort as well, although maneuvering such heavy bikes across the uneven terrain can be tricky if you are not used to it.

2. KTM Duke

The Duke is another fan favorite for this ride, and for a good reason. On the steep slopes, a powerful bike goes a long way in making the entire riding experience better. The Duke does just that. Apart from the 200, 250 and 390 cc variants, the latest addition to the Indian KTM family is the Adventure 390. Although the KTM RC variants are equally powerful, the sports bike posture could make riding long distances a little uncomfortable.

3. Bajaj Bikes

Another popular touring bike on the Indian roads is the Bajaj Dominar. It offers a good riding posture, fair amount of power, and decent pillion comfort too. Another popular Bajaj bike, the Pulsar with its 220cc variants, is also a great option for the Ladakh road trip.

Although these bikes are a popular choice, there are many other bikes that can be used for your Ladakh trip. It all depends on how comfortable the rider is with the bike.

Popular Leh Ladakh Bike Trip Routes

Ladakh Bike trip from Manali

As we saw earlier, Ladakh road trip can be done via two routes viz. the Srinagar-Leh highway and the Manali-Leh highway.

1. Manali-Leh Highway

Manali-Leh highway is the higher used route for the Ladakh road trip, due to the beautiful sights that are on offer here. The distance between Manali and Leh via this route is 490 kilometers, and the route is as follows:

Manali – Rohtang – Keylong – Jispa – Darcha – Zingzing Bar – Mountain range as Baralacha La – Sarchu – Tanglang La – Upshi – Leh

Best Time to Travel on Manali-Leh Highway

The Manali-Leh highway is open from May to September for tourists, with July to September being the preferred time to make this road trip. The roads are in better condition, and the hotels on the way are completely operational. The month of July sees a lot of tourist rush till Rohtang pass, and this continues till August. While people travelling in the month of May or early June usually fly into Leh, and plan from there on.

The month of September is the better time for a Ladakh road trip. The road conditions are much improved, and the tourist season is coming to an end. Hence, the number of vehicles, and crowd on the roads, is considerably lesser.

Places to Stay on Manali-Leh Highway

Finding a place to stay is a little difficult on the Manali-Leh highway for tourists. Although there are plenty of hotels on this highway, this number reduces drastically when you cross Jispa and move towards Leh.

Another option to stay on this highway are the campsites. They are located all along the highway. The food, and other facilities are very basic, but comfortable enough to stay overnight and start afresh the next day.

Fuel Availability on Manali-Leh Highway

The availability of petrol pumps is a major concern on the Manali-Leh highway, and it is advisable to carry cans for extra fuel while doing this road trip. Tandi is the last petrol pump at 110 kilometers from Manali towards Leh, and hence most riders refuel here.

2. Srinagar-Leh Highway

The Srinagar-Leh highway is the lesser used route to get to Leh. The distance between Srinagar and Leh is 434 kilometers, and this is the route:

Srinagar Drass – Kargil Leh

Best Time to Travel on Srinagar-Leh Highway

The Srinagar-Leh highway is open from May to October, with late June to early July being one of the best times to take this road.

September is also an excellent time to travel on this route as there will hardly be any streams on the way, and the chances of encountering a landslide are also minimal. And the landscape would be beautiful at this time of the year.

Places to Stay on Highway of Srinagar-Leh

There are plenty of places to stay on the Srinagar-Leh highway. From the most budget-friendly accommodations to the more luxurious and comfortable ones, you’ll get them all. Also, you can experience a stay at a houseboat in Srinagar.

Fuel Availability on Srinagar-Leh Highway

Although there are more petrol pumps on this route, there is a chance of them being non-functional at times. It is best advised to re-fuel at the closest petrol pump.

Places to Visit Leh Ladakh

Tso Moriri and Hanle

Although the most commonly visited places in Leh include Leh city, Nubra Valley and Pangong lake, there are a couple of other attractions which are not visited as frequently. The Tso Moriri Lake and Hanle are two such places.

Tso Moriri

Tso Moriri is the largest high-altitude lake in India which is entirely within the Indian borders. The lake offers a picturesque view with different shades of blue. You can stay at the village called Korzok which is near Tso Moriri. Tso Moriri is close to Sarchu while coming from Manali towards Leh.

Hanle is located between Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri. There are a few guest houses, and homestays, which can arrange for your accommodation in Hanle. You will need an Inner Line Permit to visit Hanle as well as Tso Moriri.

Why Do a Leh Ladakh Bike Ride?

Although reaching Leh by a flight is a very convenient option, there are several reasons why this makes a great road trip. The Leh Ladakh road trip is one of the most coveted road trips in the country owing to the varied landscape consisting of rivers, snow-clad mountains, and a number of lakes. The road is challenging, and a true test for the adventure junkie in you. There are so many places to visit in Ladakh and so much to explore, that having a bike to ride on makes it a little less daunting. The feeling of being all by yourself in the mountains, realizing how tiny a being you are while staring at the snow-clad peaks is one of the most liberating feelings ever.

This place is called ‘Heaven on Earth’ for a reason. The landscape changes all along the road. To add to it, the flora and fauna you get to witness is something that you cannot see in other parts of India. Also, when on the road, you can interact with a lot of local people. You get to know how things are different in the mountains, how the people survive, and even enjoy the local food with them. The magnificent mountains, and the low density of population offers a great respite from the crowd in the cities. It has a calming effect that cannot be replicated by any other means.

Let’s look at the challenges that you can face as a solo rider making this trip:

Leh Ladakh Bike Maintenance

Hence, there are always groups organizing these rides, who have you covered on all bases in terms of medical facilities, fuel, mechanic, guides etc. There are various attractive Ladakh tour packages as well which can help you accomplish this journey.
