Backroads of Ladakh Cycle Expedition 2018 (9N 10D)

Backroads of Ladakh

Ladakh is located deep in the Himalayas of northwest India. It lies on the western edge of the Tibetan Plateau, between the two highest mountain ranges in the world: The Himalayan range to the south and the Karakoram range to the north. Ladakh is a high-altitude desert, receiving very little precipitation throughout the year. Its climate offers sharp contrast between artic colds during the winter to 25-30 degree C temperatures in the summer.

Acclimatization is essential before tackling this trans-Himalayan ride alongside cultural visits to some of the area’s colourful Buddhist monasteries, we also pack in plenty of biking and adventure!

 

Day 01: Arrival Leh

 

On arrival, you are met and transferred to your hotel. Rest of the day is at leisure to acclimatize to the high altitude and rarefied air.
