From Delhi (India), we take the night bus to Manali. After that, we reach Manali the next day afternoon. There we can enjoy apple orchards, villages, hot springs, etc. The actual biking tour starts from here with a gradual climb to Marhi at 3000m. Meanwhile, the landscape changes when we cross Rohtang La (3980m). This place is surrounded by the Himalayan Mountains. We require at least 2 nights’ stay in Jispa for acclimatization.
Furthermore, you will acquaint yourself with Buddhist Culture. We make an excursion to Keylong, the district headquarters of Lahaul- Spiti. In addition, we will visit Gemur Monastery and royal castles. After that, one-hour easy biking brings us to Darcha. From there, a steep climb begins crossing Zing Zingbar all the way up to Barlacha-La (4830M). We, further ride in this rugged country and reach Sarchu(4253m) where we sleep in tents.
After biking along with the 21 loops, we arrive at Namikala pass. Pang, which is 77km from Sarchu and at an ultimate challenge- Tanglang La (5065m) pass. Above all, this place is the second-highest motorable pass in the world. This is the point for an unforgettable view. Another 199-km push brings us to Upshi announcing one’s return to a civilization-no less than Indus valley civilization. Now Leh is 51 km. We reach there late in the afternoon. Leh, situated at 3505 m is the capital city of Ladakh- the little Tibet. In Leh, you will visit the Shey monastery which is medieval Buddhist architecture.
Thiksey monastery has built on a high rock and reminisced of the Potala Palace of Lhasa. This is a superb viewpoint of Indus Valley. We visit Hemis Monastery, which has a mysterious atmosphere where monks mumble their parchment praying rolls surrounded by very old statues of Buddha, scarcely lit by butter. From Leh, you would love to climb 40 km to reach the highest motorable pass in the world- Khardung La is 5602m from sea level. From Leh, you will fly back to Delhi.
