We return to the green banks of the Indus, surrounded by the Zanskar and Ladakh mountain ranges. This time the river guides us along a different route, passing through traditional Ladakhi villages such as Yangthang and across two nearby passes with an elevation of 4,000 meters. Although quite high, they are not difficult to navigate and picture perfect views guaranteed! We spend time visiting Likir monastery before rejoining the main road to Leh.

D7 / Leh - Summor - 102 miles

Today the riding becomes more intense; a long day awaits us, full of beauty and adventure. After visiting the famous Thiksey Monastery we take a small paved road across the Wari La, a sparsely-traveled aerial pass cresting at an altitude of 5,300 meters. We will encounter rocky passages with the possibility of water crossings. We picnic after the pass, flanked by yaks and a wild mountain stream. Grand views, and small authentic villages make for this unforgettable motorcycle day!

D9 / Summor - Leh - 71 miles

Today’s challenge: we climb a series of hairpin turns to summit Khardung La, the highest motorable road in the world at 5,370 meters above sea level. This famous pass is an extremely popular travel destination, drawing motorists from all over the world, meaning we must remain highly vigilant. But our reward is breathtaking scenery that is truly magical, with the Zanskar range to the south and the Karakoram mountains to the north. We descend through the Indus valley and return to the capital city of Leh.
