Arrive in Manali in the Morning. After breakfast, each individual will be provided with a Scooty, for you to explore Manali and its surrounding with a local guide. This is your day to get familiar with riding on a mountain terrain.
You will ride along the Beas River upstream along the left bank through several villages, until you reach the Rohtang Pass. You will then drive down to reach Gramphu and then the passport check point at Koksar. Afterwards, you will carry on, reaching Keylong, the district headquarter of Lahoul. A further 35kms will bring us to the campsite at Jispa.
After breakfast we leave for Sarchu, riding on zigzag uphill roads in the shadow of hanging glaciers to the scenic Baralacha pass (4890m). After the pass we arrive at Bharatpur, here we will stop for a breather and some hot Chai before continuing on for Sarchu.
From Sarchu, we drive straight to the foot of Nakeela Pass (4740m) then drive up hill on gata loops up to Nakeela. En- route we get superb view of the surrounding coloured mountains. After crossing the pass we go downhill for a while and once again begin the climb for another pass The Lachulung La (5000m). Then a short halt at Pang for tea and some refreshments, then we proceed to Tsokar. Tsokar Lake is approximately 95km northwest of the Tsomoriri Lake at the height of 4490m. It is also called “White Lake” because of the salt deposited around it- this is because there is no outlet from the lake which makes the water brackish. Tsokar Lake is also the breeding grounds for a variety of birds among them the bar- headed goose, the great crested grebe, the Brahmin duck and the brown headed gull.
After breakfast we will retrace out route back to Pang, from there we will drive to Leh. Enroute we will cross the Taglang la 5630m- the World’s Second Highest Motor able Pass. Stop at Upshi for document checks and some hot tea. Here onwards the road is smooth and the ride is amazing all the way to Leh. On the way we get to see some beautiful little villages.
After the long ride to Leh, today is at leisure. You can have a relaxing morning and then explore Leh city later in the day.
We begin our morning by riding to the Khardung La pass. Once we reach the Top, we can enjoy the magnificent views of Himalaya and its valleys. Then we return back to the hotel to take our taxi ride to Pangong Lake (located on the Indo-China Border), enroute crossing the Chang-la pass (alt: 17370 ft.). The route is scenic and the drive is not so tough.
Retrace your route back to Leh. We will then head back to Leh, and then everyone is free to discover Leh on their own.
Once again we retrace our route back to Sarchu via Taglang La.
Retrace the road back to Manali.
