A BIG START
Today we were riding to one of the most famous high altitude lake, the Pangong Lake which lies on Indo – China border and is 162 kms long, the 60% of it lies in China where
it is know as Yumdok lake. The road to Pangong Lake is about twisting and turning with a spectacular Changla pass to cross, enjoy the view from the top with a cup of hot tea and even you will find the snow if you are crossing in April, May and October months. By spending not much time we move ahead towards our destination while encountering
some small nomadic villages. A scenic ride will end by evening on lake side with some chilled beers
ANOTHER SUPERB DAY !
Today’s epic ride goes towards Nubra Valley and a deep part of the valley is the Border between India - Pakistan. The ride goes on the same route for about 1 hour and after Durbuk village direction take palace towards northern Ladakh and we believe its much warmer then other parts of Ladakh with some smooth and open straight roads along the Shayok river. We encounter unexpected streams of water over roads in this route where we get a good chance to show our riding skills for crossing and sometimes even it makes the road block though it is very rare. Riders has a good opportunity for double hump camel ride which exist nowhere in India except here in Nubra Valley as some of them are left here because Ladakh being a part of Ancient silk route trade. Night stay at Hunder, the charming village which offer good stays and we will grip out best.
TOP OF THE WORLD
Good Morning Nubra Valley ! Today we were crossing Khardongla Pass ( World Highest Motor-able Road ) a gateway to Nubra valley or Leh. A cultural part of Nubra valley is still left, so as soon as we packed, we kick start from Hundar and ride to a pretty hilllock of Diskit monastery with a Stunning Buddha statue, which is a truly blessed part of the trip. Normally today's route is a busy one as you will meet lot of riders in these routes and plying of army convoy trucks is also common but still we wish for less and keep pushing up to the top to celebrate the Highest ride. Its time to show your ride with epic selfies in the backdrop of Khardong la where we won’t suggest to spent more time due to the high altitude. Twisty downhill will take us to the majestic city of Leh. Will celebrate the last night in one of the best restaurant of the town.
Here we complete our tour, Its time for late sleep and be on foot to explore market, try cafes, get shop to your besties.
