Overview

Ladakh Road trip is not just another destination in a traveller’s bucketlist, but it is a dream in itself. A bike trip to Ladakh doesn’t create stories, it creates CHRONICLES! Situated in the panoramic state of Jammu & Kashmir, Ladakh is a poet’s best poem, a painter’s best painting and a photographer’s best muse. As the altitude rises, the landscapes enroute to Ladakh change like shots of a motion picture. The mighty Himalayan Mountains, pristine glacier lakes and beautiful valleys together make Ladakh for the nature’s wonder that it is. Always keeping you high on adrenaline, an adventure trip to Ladakh through the world’s highest passes rewards you with the most breathtaking views you could ever imagine.

Though a mountain desert, Ladakh is the home to one of the most hospitable communities.
