New Delhi - Naggar (536 km), stay at Naggar
Take the roadway from Delhi to CHD riding through the NH1, treating the eyes with soothing scenic pastures on either side of the highway. From CHD, make way to Naggar, enjoying a smooth ride throughout.
In Naggar/ Manali, get ready for local sightseeing and visit Hadimba temple, Manu temple and then the hot springs, where you may take dips at the Vashisht. Next, check the bikes and supplies, wrap up any last minute shopping and gear up for an adventurous ride through the Rohtang La, the next day.
Hit the road from Naggar to Sarchu riding through the green Manali - the white Rohtang - the green/ brown Keylong, treating the eyes with some scenic multi coloured landscapes on the road that's called the 'National Highway'.
Today, ride up a bumpy road to the mighty Tanglang La (17582 ft) - the 2nd highest motorable pass in the world. Often called by many as the "highway to hell" owing to its super smooth roadway and thus, riding on this road can be tricky demanding high alertness, cautioning the bikers at every turn.
After a hearty breakfast, set out for local sightseeing, exploring Leh and the neighbouring attractions, visiting Shanti Stupa, Jama Masjid, Leh Palace, Polo Grounds, and the War Museum to name a few. In the later part of the day, check and gear up the bikes as necessary and get ready for the adventure that is to follow the next day.
Gear up and speed off on the smooth tarmac to meet the Pangong Lake, traversing the Chang La (17586 ft) - the 3rd highest motorable pass in the world, left behind by Khardung La and Tanglang La. En route, pause for paying visits to the beautiful and peaceful monastaries around Leh - Hemis, Shey, Thiksey etc. Also, take some breaks in between to pose for snaps with the cascading waterfalls at the backdrop.
On nearing the destination, walk the bikes to reach the tranquil lake, which was made famous after the filming of the iconic Bollywood film - 3 Idiots, at this very location.
Ride back to Leh, en-route, see the famous school of Phunsuk Wangdu of 3 Idiots fame.
Ride up the majestic Khardung La (18380 ft) - the highest motorable pass in the world, the most challenging yet the most fascinating of all passes, and then, reach the picturesque Nubra Valley.
In the morning, set out for a double hump camel ride, exploring the villages of
Hunder and Diskit and then, the Panamik hot water springs, where you may take a few dips to give yourself a therapeutic sulphur water treatment. Scoot back to Leh via Khardung La again.
The road from Leh to Kargil, which resembles a runway, constitutes the first part of the day’s journey. En route the journey, visit the Lamayuru monastary, which is the highest monastery in Ladakh and then, cross the Fotu La, which is the highest pass on the Leh - Srinagar road, and descend down to stop at Kargil. The entire population in Ladakh is Buddhist while the entire population in Kargil is Islamic, and thus, the journey from Ladakh to Kargil is symbolic in its own way, signifying a transformation, as you traverse from one world to another, regionally as well as “religionally.”
Begin riding and cross Drass – the second coldest inhabited place on earth after Siberia (Russia) and visit the Drass war museum to pay respects and pray for the peace of the brave souls of the valiant jawans who fought and sacrificed their lives during the Kargil war of 1999. Pave way to reach the majestic Tiger hill and salute the brave Indian Army and the national flag – ‘Tiranga’ and yet again, feel the pride of being an Indian. Rid to cross Zoji La and descend down to Sonamarg while leaving behind the arid, dry and vegetation - less yet picturesque Ladakh to be greeted by the starkly contrasting greenery of Sonamarg, one of the most beautiful parts of the “Heaven on Earth – Kashmir”. Visit the Dal Lake for a shikara ride, the Mughal Gardens, the Shankracharya Temple and other tourist attractions on reaching Srinagar.
Rest day / Local sightseeing at Srinagar
Cross the gateway to Kashmir which is heavily guarded by the Indian army, and then, pass through the historical Jawahar Tunnel to enter the warm and sunny Udhampur/ Jammu region. Finally, be grateful to God for having successfully complete done of the toughest drives in the world not only safely but also while immersingin every moment of its awe inspiring beauty at the same time.
