Day 2 | Local sightseeing (80 kilometers/49.71 miles)
Get acquainted with the Royal Enfields. Acclimatization and warm-up ride around 80 kilometers/49.71 miles to visit monuments and sightseeing. Enjoy the route via a picturesque road situated above the canyon of the Indus River back toward Leh. This time you will not enter the town, but you will go further through the beautiful valley of the Indus.

Along the way, you will see the palace, the seat of the first rulers of Ladakh, Shey, and the most impressive Buddhist monastery in the entire region, Thiksey. In 2016, it hosted the Dalai Lama himself. In the afternoon, you bid farewell to the main trail and turn into the valley.

Day 3 | Leh – Dah 
This will be the first day on your Royal Enfield on a long ride. You will drive to the famous Aryan Valley Dah and Hannu. The people in this valley look quite different than the other inhabitants of Ladakh. They are of more Indo-European than Tibetan type. The area is also warmer and greener Abbey. Ahead of you, a beautiful route, full of views, mostly onto new asphalt along with the Indus river. Spend the night at a guesthouse at Dah Hannu.

Day 4 | Dha to Lamayaru via Hamboting La Pass
Today, you will have the opportunity to cross the rarely visited Ladakh area: Baltis Valley. Ride on the Hamboting pass and Batalik and Kargil Area. After taking the Leh-Srinagar Highway from Kargil and ride on Namk La and Fotula pass, as you moved to another world. Rest for the night at a Lamayaru guesthouse.

Day 5 | Lamayaru – Alchi – Leh
Today, you will return to the Buddhist world in its classic edition. You’ll find that the route is already partially familiar to you, but it looks different from the other side! Accommodation will be in Leh Hotel.

Day 6 | Leh – Tso Morri
A picturesque highway leads you along with the Indus river towards the China border. You will pass and visit some hot springs at Chumathang Plato and after crossing a small pass you can admire the grand view of Thatsangkaru Lake (4,500 meters/14,763.78 feet). An off-road trail takes you to Karzok village along with Tso Moriri lake. Overnight stay at lake view camps.

Day 7 | Tso Morriri – Tso Kar Lake
The Tso Moriri lake is a strict nature reserve. The emerald waters usually surrounded by snow-capped mountain peaks look stunning. En route, you will be able to relax at a hot geyser and see the last Himalayan nomads. The road is 60% gravel. Accommodation will be in specially prepared Swiss Camps on Tso Kar lakeside.

Day 8 | Tso Kar – Pangong Tso
Today, cope with the second highest pass in the world, Taglanga La (5,359 meters/17,582.02 feet). After that, go down the picturesque valley along the river. Afterward, ride to the third-highest, approved traffic pass in the world, Chang La (5,360 meters/17585.3 feet), is awaiting you.

Day 9 | Pangong Tso – Nubra Valley (Hunder) through Shyok River
Today is not an easy route, but an unforgettable one. Enjoy a ride entirely along the Shyok River. The program does not involve any passes, but it will sometimes be “curvy” and on gravel. Certainly, you are going to take a rest a break from altitudes, but it will be much warmer, it may even be boiling hot. If due to weather conditions (e.g. landslides) the road should be closed, you will go through the Wari La Pass. Accommodation is in a hotel.

Day 10 | Nubra Valley – Leh
