Climb new heights on this original motorcycle tour! Less perilous than the Trans-Himalayan, this adventure is accessible to those travelling in duos. Your steeds await you in Leh, for a discovery of Ladakh in all its diversity. Explore the fertile Indus Valley and its magnificent Buddhist monasteries. Climb up to deep-blue Pangong Tso Lake, a natural border with neighbouring Tibet. Once back from the superb Nubra Valley, you’ll reach the highest point of your journey: Khardung La (5,370m/17618ft). If you like rocky trails, staggering scenery and engaging encounters, this intense Himalayan motorcycle trip is for you!

We leave early and head east towards the Chinese border. After visiting Thikshey monastery, we start driving up to Chang La pass at 5,300 m (17388.45 ft.). We then ride down on the other side to the 80-mile long Pangong Lake, a natural boundary between India and China.
