Ladakh camps and rides is one of the oldest design trip of LBR which is still on top demand by the riders around the world and the tour have the credit of having the best feedbacks by our past riders. Camps and Rides as the name suggest is best the way to explore the wilderness of ladakh on Royal Enfield, as earlier we used to host and organise the tour accordingly where we chose our own moving camps reason being not availability of accommodation facilities at the halt locations, we use to move with two backup vehicles, one for bike and one for kitchen & camping, but we always believe that riders need good showers during the tours but we fail to provide in most of the places on our campings. But by coming years due to the growing of more tourism now it makes easy for us to get fixed Camps, Guest house, Hotels, so now we prefer fixed accommodations during the tours. The tour covers some of the very interesting places and from these year onwards we add newly open routes of Pangong , Chushul & Hanle which is a part of border crushing route. Ride goes through world highest pass (Khardong-la) to Hundar and far west to Changthang region towards China border to Pangong & Tsmoriri lake. We have planed the itinerary in such a way that the routes are full of adventures without repeating the single route again, accept 1 hour ride while back from Tsomoriri to Tsokar. Camps and Rides is one of the finest fixed departure tours of LBR which start and ends in Leh.

A crazy and twisty roads of Khardongla (world highest motor able road) is the main aim of ride and it would be your highest ride and getting selfi with milestone is the best part of today’s trip. In short it was the more gravel uphill, easy down hill and very short open staring route.
