Unplug from the hustle and plug into nature's most beautiful and adventurous Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali. To express it in most straightforward language, the Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali, which is approximately 476 km in length, is every rider's dream for its most adventurous roads, scenic valleys, barren to snowy mountains, vast flatlands to hairpin turns. All of this is combined with gushes of heavy cold wind, pushing you back from time to time, making this journey even more adventurous and exciting.
Gliding on this road means weaving into the poetic rhythms, talking to self, and plugging into nature with various desolate places, offbeat trails, monasteries, high-altitude lakes, and highest passes.
To gain enough confidence about the trails, it is in our favor. BRO (Border Road Organization) takes care of the highway. Further, the whole project is divided into Project Himank and Project Deepak. Project Deepak handles the part of the highway from Manali to Sarchu (222 km); Project Himank takes care of the highway from Sarchu to Leh (254 km).
Handling AMS on this road trip will be our utmost priority because you will be above an altitude of 14000 ft for more than 300 km. Our leaders will be taking time-to-time surveys of your health. Let them know if you feel anything out of the world
With that confirmed, Plan the Unplanned team invites you on a 12-day off-the-track Leh Ladakh bike trip from Manali. You will be doing many things along with getting high doses of adrenaline. Check out the itinerary and book your next slot.
