11 Night 12 Days
Leh Manali Bike Trip is through hidden over high passes in an arid, largely treeless rain shadow, Ladakh boasts of a classic Trans Himalayan scenery: huge khaki-coloured valleys and harsh rock walls brought alive by the occasional splash of irrigated green. Traditional Tibetan Buddhist culture remains intact here, with beautiful monasteries that burst into life during dance festivals that have changed little in over 500 years. This contains everything an adventure lover wants – epic treks, sparkling high-altitude mountain lakes and a well developed backpacker infrastructure based around the capital, Leh.
