Every ride to a place in Ladakh would be unique and thrilling. The view of enchanting lakes and valleys makes this road trip unforgettable. Also, this place attracts adventure seekers for activities like Rafting, trekking, paragliding, hiking, mountain climbing, and much more.
Some of the favourite tourist places for a Leh Ladakh bike trip.
June, July and August are the best three months for a Leh Ladakh bike trip. Also, May and September is a good time for a road trip in Ladakh.
Leh is a part of Ladakh. In fact, Leh is the capital of Ladakh. A common misunderstanding among people about Ladakh is that Leh and Ladakh are two different places. Ladakh, now UT Ladakh has two districts Leh and Kargil.
The two main highways to Ladakh are:
Route1 – Manali – Jispa- Leh – Pangong
|1||Manali to Jispa||2 hour||91 km|
|2||Jispa to Leh||9 hour||342 km|
Route 2 – Jammu – Srinagar – Leh – Pangong
|1||Jammu to Srinagar||6 to 9 hours||262|
|2||Srinagar to Leh||10 to 15 hours||434|
We strongly recommend you start your Ladakh bike trip from Leh. There are a lot of places in Ladakh for a thrilling road trip. And all the roads are favorite among riders for road trips. Renting a bike from Jammu or Manali is an expensive proposition in itself. The round trip from Jammu to Leh or Manali to Leh and back takes a lot of time and it’s very hectic and tiring. Also, renting a 150 cc to 500 cc bike will cost you a lot.

Fill your bike tank in Leh, before embarking on a bike trip to the remote areas. You will find refueling pumps at many places in Ladakh but don’t give your hopes on it. It would be best if you fill your tank in main Leh and then start your road trip. Also, a few of the local stores at various places sell petrol. Do not buy petrol from these local stores unless it’s an emergency, as they are usually adulterated.
A lot of ATM kiosks can be found in main Leh. But in remote places, ATMs are rarely available. So, it would be best to carry the required cash with you before starting the bike trip to a far place from Leh.
As of now, postpaid SIM operators of BSNL, Airtel, and Jio are working in Ladakh on roaming service. The signal for BSNL is better than Airtel and Jio.
Internet speed is good in the main Leh area, but in remote places, the signals would be very weak or no signal at all. We highly recommend subscribing to a BSNL post-paid SIM before visiting Ladakh.
Camping is restricted at many places near Pangong Lake. Contact us to know the situation before your visit.
