Banbanjara thanks a lot for arranging a good trip had lifetime memories within a short period of time, everything was perfect, and its best, the ground people were awesome, there were no words to express and last but not least Banbanjara is the best 😍😍 hope will be meeting you soon Banbanjara 😍

Good experience

Great experience. Probably one of the best of my life. Very well organized especially by our tour guide and his whole crew. The planning done by them was very good. Great accommodations. Good bikes. Very helpful throughout the trip whenever required. Proper instructions were given throughout. all are well managed.😍😍

I would suggest everyone and anyone take up Banbanjara staff as their tour guide who was there to take care of anything and everything in everyday situations and who would also make things convenient as per our needs. they were truly the best guide. Not any problem occurred during the trip.Thanks ! Banbanjara

wonderful trip

I have always been a solo rider. Traveling in a group was so much fun, having a backup vehicle made things even better. All the hotels and meals being booked made my life easier and of course - all the great friends I have made - were the cherry on the cake :) it's a nice time spending for me.

To start with I had the most adventurous ride of a lifetime. A bike trip allows you to experience the best just in front of your eyes and Manali to Leh was one of my dream destinations. The word that follows will be a huge WOW. I went with my 2 friends and once we reached there we were provided with our bikes. Another best thing was that the fuel was included in the package. This is a must-trip for the bikers.

Deepak Kaul

The trip sure will test your resolve and character as challenges on and off the road, altitude sickness, scarcity of your conventional food, etc. But once past that the memories you make are pure and will last for life! I sincerely feel relieved to take the trip through Banbanjara and not attempt a solo ride on our own. This trip is for those who are willing to push themselves a bit extra to experience the Adventure of a Lifetime!!

Vikrant Pratap

Fabulous, awesome, great, thrilling, exciting, perfect. None of them can express it. You need to experience it to feel it and all this because of the management of Banbanjara. I went with my wife and the trip turned out to be memories that can be cherished for a lifetime. Thanks, to everyone once again.🥰🥰

The way they have taken care of each and every individual on board is remarkable and outstanding. the team was well prepared for any kind of situation. All the team members are very jolly and friendly which adds to the fun of travel. and This experience is definitely going to be an unforgettable one and I would recommend everyone for this adventure trip.

The trip from Leh Ladakh to Manali was just cool. I totally loved the biking experience in the mesmerizing snow and mountain peaks. Will surely go again.😍😍😍😍

"\"PURE BLISS!!\" One of the most memorable trips of my life. \"Must do\" trip for each youngster.. it was a very well-managed trip by Banbanjara in association with the operator. I was a solo Traveller for this trip.. but let me tell u, I never felt the discomfort of being a solo girl Traveller on this trip. they took good care of each one of us.

How is life in Ladakh?

A nature lover and peace finder will surely love it.  Ladakh is a peaceful place. The best thing about Ladakh is it is not developed like a metropolitan city. You will not see any shopping malls or PVR or KFC or McDonald's.

Summer months are ideal but in winters the temperature drops drastically and the locals migrate temporarily.

Can we smoke in Ladakh?

There is no restriction when it comes to smoking in Leh Ladakh. Smokers are allowed to smoke in public places except for Nubra Valley. In Leh, Ladakh smokers might feel difficulty if they smoke because there is low atmospheric pressure and lungs have to do extra work in a lesser amount of oxygen which may cause Altitude Sickness.

When choosing a bike for a trip like the  Leh Ladakh Bike Trip , travellers have always found it safe and beneficial to choose models of bikes that are simple to operate and maintain. The following five bikes are the finest for a trip to Leh Ladakh :

Royal Enfield-  The 350 CC or 500 CC engine on this Bike, regarded as the most fabulous Bike for a trip to Leh Ladakh , is powerful enough to save your life during a Leh Ladakh bullet trip .

Royal Enfield Himalayan-  The 400 CC Royal Enfield Himalayan’s powerful engine will make travelling on any rocky trek or off-the-beaten-path road effortless and hassle-free.

Bajaj Pulsar-  When compared to Bajaj Pulsar, no other bike has, by a long shot, been a success in India. The Pulsar, the second most popular Bike after Bullets, comes in 150CC, 200CC, and 220CC variations. Either one of these models may be your dependable travel companion on any excursion.

SPECIAL INSTRUCTIONS FOR TOURISTS VISITING LADAKH

Ladakh is a very safe, tourist-friendly and cheering place, but still, you need to take care of some preparations which can make your tour even better and memorable:

– Only post-paid mobile phones work in Leh-Ladakh, preferably BSNL, Airtel and Jio. As phones may not work in many places, keep your family members informed well in advance not to worry if they fail to contact you.

– You would hardly find any cellular network in most of the areas in Leh. BSNL works better here, however, you would find Airtel and Jio signals also at some places (Leh, Hunder and Diskit).

– Don’t expect high-speed internet in Ladakh.

– Keep ready a pair of woollen (not heavy) with you as temperature may dip as low as 5 degrees any time even during summer months.

– Carry good Sun Screen lotion, sunglasses (goggles), cap with you to avoid sunburn as sun rays are direct and can burn your skin.

– Don’t forget to carry photo id with you. Driving License, Passport, Voter Cards, and Aadhaar are valid photo IDs.

– While travelling on the mountains, keep drinking water and eating healthy food and fruits to avoid high altitude sickness and dizziness due to curvy roads, low air pressure and dry air.

– Carry headache, stomachache, anti-vomiting tablets with you.

– You may consume diamox at least 7-8 hours before arrival at Leh (preferably before falling asleep) and may also take before boarding plane to Leh. The medicine is optional. Having rest and drinking enough water for some hours after reaching Leh is advised.

– Leh has some ATM machines where you can withdraw cash. These machines witness long queues of customers during peak season and run out of cash many times. Non-connectivity is another issue. So carrying enough cash is advisable.

– Please respect the Buddhist and Muslim culture of Ladakh. People of all communities here believe in brotherhood and harmony and respects the tourists. The residents expect the same from the tourists.

Ladakh Bike Trip Cost

ladakh bike trip from manali

First things first, you should figure out your budget. A lot depends on the vehicle you are selecting for your journey and the Leh Ladakh road trip cost would also vary on the accommodation and kind of food you choose to eat. Still, an average budget can be arrived at considering basic factors such as accommodation, meals, and fuel. Hence, under normal circumstances, you will end up spending approximately ₹35,000 for a trip to Leh Ladakh on bike for 15 days. Your cost will also vary according to your Leh Ladakh bike trip route. This also includes the cost of permits and miscellaneous expenses for the Leh Ladakh motorcycle trip.

Talking about the first things first, every biker must give his or her total attention to their first love, which is their bike. One must be very careful and picky when it comes to choosing their Leh Ladakh road trip bike. So whenever you’re choosing a bike for any road trip, make sure you go for suitability more than popularity. Consider it one of the most vital aspects of your Leh Ladakh bike trip plan!

Opting for the kind of bikes that one can easily handle and are easy to maintain, has always proven to be safe, and helpful for the riders for journeys like Leh Ladakh bike trip. Hence, the five best bikes for Leh Ladakh bike trip are:

  • Royal Enfield – Considered to be the best bike for Leh Ladakh trip , it is a powerful bike with an engine of either 350 CC or 500 CC that is enough to be a lifesaver on a Leh Ladakh bullet trip .
  • Royal Enfield Himalayan – With a strong engine of 400 CC, Royal Enfield Himalayan will make your ride smooth and hassle-free on any rugged trail and offbeat roads.
  • Bajaj Pulsar – By far, no bike has been a hit in the Indian market when compared to Bajaj Pulsar. Being the most favored bike after the Bullets, Pulsar offers variants of 150CC, 200CC, and 220CC, either of which can be your trustworthy partner on any of the adventures.
  • KTM Duke – Being a featherweight bike can be advantageous on roads like that of Ladakh. With the series of new engine variants of Duke 390, and Duke 250, KTM can be a good choice for a bike trip to Ladakh too.
  • CBR 250 – This bike from Honda is indeed a stunner except for its Contigo tyres which can be a little tough to handle on Ladakh’s terrain in case of a change in weather. On the bright side, if the tyres can be replaced, one can put the bike’s torque and fi technology to great use, and a greater purpose.

Other top bikes for Leh Ladakh trip that the association of bike rentals has taken into consideration are Yamaha Fazer, Bajaj Vikrant, Yamaha FZ, and Hero Impulse. Though these bikes are not so heavy on the engine, they can surely pick up some speed (without breaking any rules) on the go.

No bike. No worries. The bike rentals at Delhi and Manali are ever willing to offer you a ride on rent provided you submit all the required documents.

All you have to submit is a valid photo id proof, your driving license, ₹10,000 as the security deposit, and a consent letter from your parents in case you’re still under 25, and you are all set for Leh Ladakh bike trip from Delhi.

In Manali, the per-day rent charges range from ₹1000 to ₹1800 whereas the security deposit is between ₹12,000 to ₹18,000 along with the original copy of valid ID proofs.

Miscellaneous

It is a must to keep some amount of money aside for emergency purposes, shopping for souvenirs, or for permits. Thus, an amount of ₹2,500 to ₹5,000 is a must for every biker to spread it across the luggage or pockets and save it as a backup.

Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

Average Budget = Petrol + Accommodation + Meals + Miscellaneous = 7000 + 8000 + 3500 + 2500 = ₹21,000/-

Thus, considering all the lower limits, an average budget for a 15-day Leh Ladakh bike trip would be ₹21,000 per person.

Please Note: We’re assuming you have a bike of your own as the budget doesn’t include the cost of bike rental. Hence, in case you plan on renting a bike, the budget would exceed by a minimum of ₹13,500 to ₹15,000 per bike for a minimum of 15 days.

Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

Going on a bike trip is like hard-core backpacking through the roughest of mountains. It is an adventure trip to Ladakh which needs packing to be light yet all the basic requirements need to be carried along. Keep in mind the below mentioned Leh Ladakh bike trip preparation while packing your stuff.

  • An intelligent head on strong shoulders is a matter of life and death for everyone. Hence, carry a sturdy helmet and put it to use all the time while you’re riding.
  • Valid photo identity proofs and not to forget your driving license.
  • One or two leather jackets are a must to glide through the wind and beat the breeze.
  • Carry sweatshirts, tees, jeans, shorts, shirts, tracks, inner-wear, socks, towels, handkerchiefs, and other clothing items that you may feel necessary.
  • Carrying an extra pair of sturdy trekking shoes or leather boots will keep you away from cold feet.
  • Match your shoes with an extra pair of gloves.
  • Riding goggles to protect your eyes.
  • It is a must to carry a first-aid kit for yourself and a tool-kit for your bike.
  • You’ll be equipped with GPS for sure but then carry a physical map for better navigation and clear routes.

Planning a Leh Ladakh bike trip plan and not sure about where and how to start? Here are the basic eligibility criteria for your trip. Be advised that it is extremely important to go through each and every criterion:

  • You should be above 25 years of age with a valid driving license.
  • We recommend that if you want to go on a Leh Ladakh road trip, then you should already have some nice riding experiences, especially long bike tours.
  • There should be at least a group of 6 people for your entire Leh Ladakh bike trip plan
  • You must carry a valid driving license, government-issued photo ID proof, address proof, and photocopies of these documents. 
  • International tourists must carry an International Driving Permit (IDP) issued by their home country along with their passport.
  • Indian nationals do require an Inner Line Permit or ILP in case you want to visit the protected areas in Ladakh.
  • Other special permits are required by foreign nationals in order to visit Pangong lake, Tso Moriri, etc.

Leh Ladakh Bike Trip

It is believed that rules are meant to be broken and some of you may get the feeling of “your life, your rules” but then it is not at all advised to go on a bike trip with a wrong attitude.

  • Breaking the rules on one of the most dangerous and highest motorable roads can be dangerous as death itself. Hence, for your own sake and safety, abide by the rules and follow them wisely.
  • If you’re taking the route of Manali to Leh, it is recommended to carry extra jars of petrol apart from the full-tanks as there are only two petrol pumps on this route. On the contrary, the route from Srinagar to Leh has plenty of petrol pumps.
  • It is advisable that you learn how to change a bike tyre in case your bike suffers any punctures. For the rest of the times, one can find many mechanics along the way on both the routes.
  • Carry necessary medicines with you in case you, your partner, or your friends with whom you’re traveling suffer from altitude sickness.
  • It is important to note that Leh only has connectivity from the leading operators of Airtel, BSNL, & Aircel. Riders who don’t have these connections do not have any other choice other than standing in the long queues of overcrowded STD booths or getting a connection from one of the above-mentioned operators.
  • Though there are several ATMs at Leh, carry enough cash with you as the ATM you’ll find on Manali to Leh route is at Keylong.
  • Applying for an Inner Line Permit will only cost you ₹200 and will give you access to remote places like that Tso Moriri, Chushul, Merak, Loma, Mahe, Hanle, and more. One can apply and get this permit from the Deputy Commissioner’s office in Leh from 9 am to 3 pm.

Itinerary for Leh Ladakh Motor Bike Expedition:

Day 00: Arrival in Delhi(216m) Arrive in Delhi on your own and meet the Adventure Nation team and your fellow riders in the evening. In order to provide you the information regarding the expedition, it is essential that you participate in an orientation session. After the session, the bikes will be allotted so you may take it for a spin and check if it’s aligned to your riding style. Later, you are to go to your accommodation (arranged by yourself)  and retire early as tomorrow is going to be an early start. Day 01: Delhi to Chandigarh(321m) | 260km  

Grade/Duration - Easy/Approx. 5 Hours Altitude Gain - 105m Highlights - Breakfast at Murthal  

Arrive at the decided location early in the morning and meet our team and your fellow riders. After a quick briefing, we flag off from Delhi and start riding on the National Highway 1. Today’s journey will take you through places like Panipat, Karnal and Kurukshetra. Arrive in the city beautiful and check in to your accommodation. Stay overnight in a hotel. Day 02: Chandigarh to Manali(2050m) | 280km      Grade/Duration - Easy/Approx. 9 Hours Altitude Gain - 1729m Highlights - Entering the Himalayas, Riding along Beas River  

After having an early breakfast, check out from the hotel and hit the road. Initially, we ride through the plains in the State of Punjab and after riding for a few hours, we enter the State of Himachal Pradesh, also known as the ‘Land of the Gods.’ We will pass through the towns of Bilaspur and Mandi. After crossing Bhuntar, the ride gets exciting as we ride along the Beas River until we reach Manali. Later in the evening, go out and explore the colorful lanes of Old Manali, if time permits. Stay overnight in a hotel. Day 03: Manali to Jispa(3200m) | 140km      Grade/Duration - Moderate/Approx. 8 Hours Altitude Gain - 1150m Highlights - Solang Valley, Rohtang La(Pass)  

Today, we are going to ride towards Jispa on the much-celebrated Manali-Leh Highway. Leaving early is pivotal as we need to cross the mighty Rohtang Pass (3978m) early in the day, before it gets too crowded. After crossing Rohtang, the landscape changes drastically as we enter the Lahaul and Spiti District. The lush green grasslands disappear and the barren slopes of the cold dessert take over. We continue the ride towards Jispa crossing the quaint mountain towns of Sissu and Keylong. Arrive at the destination early in the evening and have an adventurous overnight stay in tents. Day 04: Jispa to Sarchu(4290m) | 90km      Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 6 Hours Altitude Gain - 1090m Highlights - Deepak Tal, Baralacha La, Riding along Tsarap River  

Keep yourself completely hydrated by drinking a tonne of water as we are going to spend the night at above 4000mt altitude. Today’s ride is one of the shortest rides of the expedition but the adrenaline level remains high as the terrain is full of adventure. After crossing Darcha, keep riding on the Manali-Leh Highway towards Deepak Tal. The road from here starts to ascend steeply towards the treacherous Baralacha Pass(4890m), negotiating Zing Zing Bar and crossing the stunning emerald lake, known as Suraj Tal. Just after crossing Baralacha, halt for some time and have some well-deserved lunch near Bharatpur. We continue our ride to Sarchu on the same road, although the terrain gets changed quite a bit along the way and Tsarap River is visible on the left side carving and raging through the mountains. Arrive in Sarchu later in the day and be prepared for a rather uncomfortable overnight stay in a tent. Day 05: Sarchu to Leh(3500m) | 250km       

Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 8 Hours Altitude Loss - 1090m Highlights - Gata loops, Nakee La, Lachung La, Morey Plains, Tanglang La, Riding along Indus River  

Start riding after an early breakfast as today’s going to be a long but exciting day of riding. Water-Crossings are a common sight on the road while riding to Leh and the ideal time to cross them is early in the day. Just after leaving Sarchu, we start to ascend towards Nakee La(4769m), crossing the zig-zag Gata Loops which is a series of 21 hairpin bends within a span of just 7km. The descent from Nakee La is barely even finished and the ascent towards another high pass, Lachung La(5059m) begins. The descent from Lachung La brings us to the town of Pang(4600m) where we halt for Lunch. The landscape starts to change after crossing Pang and the plateau of Morey Plains starts and stretches for 45km. Closer to the end of the plains, we start climbing the Tanglang La(5328m), the highest motorable pass on the Manali-Leh Highway. After crossing the 3rd high pass of the day, continue riding towards Leh along the mighty Indus River on the left side. Reach Leh in the evening and relax in the hotel. Day 06: Rest Day in Leh Replenish your energies with a healthy breakfast and enjoy a relaxing day in Leh. The first half of the day is saved for a regular check-up of the bikes and the rest of the day can be spent visiting a few sightseeing places in and around the city. Stop by the Leh Palace and enjoy the splendid panoramic views of the Stok Kangri mountain range from the terrace. You may also choose to visit the Shanti Stupa and the local market to indulge in some shopping and try out the Ladakhi cuisine at the local eateries. Spend the night at the hotel. Day 07: Leh to Nubra (3048m) | 160km      Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 7 Hours Altitude Loss - 452m Highlights - Khardung La, Diskit Monastery  

After a rather relaxed day in Leh, we continue our expedition and start riding towards Nubra Valley through what’s considered the highest motorable road in the world i.e. Khardung La(5359m). The road towards the pass is well paved and tarred till the checkpoint near South Pullu and after crossing the checkpoint, the road starts to get slushy with loose rocks on one side. Get yourself clicked after reaching Khardung La and hit the road quickly as it is not safe to spend much time on top of the pass due to the high altitude and thin air. We stop for a quick lunch after climbing down from the pass and then continue our journey. After riding for another couple of hours, we make a brief stop to visit the 32m high Maitreya Buddha statue in Diskit Monastery. Our arrival in the valley will be welcomed by the white sand dunes and the sightings of the double-hump Bactrian camels grazing. Stay overnight at the hotel/campsite. Day 08: Nubra to Pangong(4250m) | 260km      Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 8 Hours Altitude Gain -1202m Highlights - Riding along Shyok River, Water Crossings   

After having breakfast, we start riding towards the most photographed destination in Ladakh, Pangong Lake. Despite the fact that we are not going to cross any high pass today, the ride should be quite interesting as we ride on the much less traveled road via Shyok. Most of our ride is going to be along the beautiful Shyok River and through the villages like Agham, Shyok, Durbuk, and Tangste. The road remains slushy along with some exciting water crossings and rocky terrain so being cautious is important. After crossing Durbuk, the last stretch of the ride is going to be along the lake. From the very first glimpse, the lake leaves an everlasting impression on the visitors. Get yourself photographed and just admire the wonder that is this shimmering blue lake. Overnight stay in tents.  Day 09: Pangong to Leh(3500m) | 150km      Grade/Duration - Moderate/Approx. 5 Hours Altitude Loss - 750m Highlights - Chang La, Druk White Lotus School  

Wake up to an enchanting sunrise over Pangong Tso and recommence your Ladakh expedition. Today we are going to ride the same route that we rode yesterday and after crossing Durbuk, we will start climbing the third highest motorable pass in the world, Chang La(5360m). After crossing Chang La, we halt for Lunch. After eating, we start our journey to Lah via Karu from where we start riding on the Manali-Leh Highway. Just before reaching Leh, we are going to pass through the Thiksey monastery and the popular Druk White Lotus School. There will be a short halt to explore the monastery and take some pictures. After riding for approximately an hour, we will arrive in Leh for the second time during the expedition. Stay Overnight in a hotel. Day 10: Leh to Kargil(2676m) | 220km      Grade/Duration - Moderate/Approx. 6 Hours Altitude Loss - 824m Highlights - Fotu La, Namika La, Lamayuru Monastery  

The ride from Leh to Kargil takes relatively less time as the roads are in pretty decent condition. We bid adieu to Leh and follow the mighty Indus River towards Kargil on the Leh-Srinagar Highway. The landscape is mesmerizing all along the way as we ride through a spectacular moonscape to reach Lamayuru, which is home to the highest located monastery in the region. Just after Lamayuru, we start the gradual climb towards the Fotu La(4108m) and after climbing down the pass we start the climb towards another high pass which is Namika La(3700m). Both of these passes are in the Zanskar range and take us into the Musbekh Valley. We pass through multiple picturesque villages en route to Kargil. Stay overnight. Day 11: Kargil to Srinagar(1585m) | 202km      Grade/Duration - Difficult/Approx. 7 Hours Altitude Loss - 1091m Highlights - Dras War Memorial, Zoji La  

Wake up the chilly Himalayan air and get ready for what is going to be one of the most incredible riding experiences. We check out of our accommodation and start riding towards the Kashmir Valley via Dras, which is regarded as the second coldest inhabited place on earth. Just before reaching Dras, we take a short break at the Dras War Memorial. After Dras, we start riding uphill towards Zoji La(3528m) and the views from the top are just indescribably beautiful. After crossing the pass we enter the breathtaking valley of Sonamarg which is a major tourist destination. Another couple of hours of riding through the valley take us to Srinagar. Stay overnight in a houseboat/hotel. Day 12: Srinagar to Pathankot (332m) | 330km      Grade/Duration - Easy/Approx. 10 Hours Altitude Loss - 1253m Highlights - Riding down Himalayas, Jawahar Tunnel, Syama Tunnel  

Today’s ride is going to take us through the stunning valleys of Kashmir to the plains of Pathankot in Punjab. Although the distance is rather long, the riding pace should be quite swift as we will be climbing down and the road conditions are pretty decent. On the way to Pathankot, we are going to pass through two of the biggest tunnels in the region i.e. Jawahar Tunnel(2.85km) and Dr Syama Prasad Mookerjee Tunnel(9.2km). Arrive at the hotel and have a good night of sleep as tomorrow is also going to be a long day of riding. Day 13: Pathankot to Delhi (216m) | 485km      Grade/Duration - Easy/Approx. 11 Hours Altitude Loss - 116m Highlights - Lush Green landscape throughout   

Today marks the last day of this once in a lifetime adventure. We need to start as early as possible as the distance to be covered today is the longest on this 13-day expedition. The journey should be pretty uneventful as we are going to be riding on wide tarmac roads through the plains of Punjab and Haryana. Arrive in the capital by late evening and reach the very place where it all started from. Get photographed with the entire gang one last time on this epic voyage and bid farewell to your motorcycle and your fellow riders. Trip Ends.

FAQs for Leh Ladakh Bike Tours:

1. What are the different routes to reach Leh?  Leh is accessible by road essentially from two different regions i.e. Kashmir Valley in west and Himachal in south. To get the best Ladakhi experience, one should enter from  Manali and exit in Srinagar or vice versa.   2. What is the ideal duration for a Ladakh bike trip? A bona fide Ladakh bike trip takes a minimum of 11 days if you want to experience all that this remote cold deserted region has to offer. There’s also an option of doing a Ladakh bike trip in 5-6 days if you fly in/out of Leh and cover places such as Nubra and Pangong. Although, flying in/out implies that you miss the adventures that the Manali-Leh Highway and the Srinagar-Leh Highway offer. 3. What is the ideal season to visit Ladakh? The open season for Ladakh is between June to September if you want to ride across all the high altitude passes such as Rohtang La, Baralacha La and Khardung La. 4. What type of clothing/gear is required for a Ladakh bike trip? Carrying the right kind of clothing is extremely important as you encounter all sorts of difficult weather/terrains ranging from humidity to biting cold and water crossings to snow-covered passes. The idea is to keep you warm and dry. Full body thermals along with a jacket are absolute necessities. A rain suit along with high ankle waterproof shoes/gumboots are to be carried. About the riding equipment, elbow guards and knee pads provide much-required safety apart from the helmet. 5. What are the must-see places during a Ladakh bike trip? Rohtang La, Baralacha La, Leh, Khardung La, Nubra Valley, Turtuk, Pangong Tso, Chang La, Tso Moriri, Kargil, Batalik, Zoji La, Srinagar. 6. What type of motorcycle is suited for Ladakh? The terrain on a Ladakh bike trip changes drastically in different locations. There should be enough power in the engine to manoeuvre through high passes and terrains such as slush, snow and even water crossings. Although Adventure Motorcycles are ideal, any motorcycle having a 200cc engine or above should do the job.  7. How good is the tourist infrastructure in Ladakh? Biking in Ladakh has become one of the most popular road trips in the world and that’s why the tourist infrastructure gets better every year. There are plenty of options available for accommodation/food throughout the entire biking circuit. Mobile reception is available only in the major towns so be prepared to be off the grid for some time.

Reviews for The Dream Ride Motor Bike Expedition to Ladakh

img

Awesome experience!

Go for it guys! It is the best possible choice if you are looking for bike trip to Ladakh. Had an awesome time with the group.

Value for money, food was delicious, and the team was excellent in handling the member and the bikes. No issues faced at all. Thanks for the adventure folks!

I travelled all the way from Kolkata just to experience the beauty of Ladakh in most adventurous way possible and it proved to be worth all the effort I made. Everything was perfect in terms of service and food.

2500 kms plus in 13 days of this Motorbike Expedition to Ladakh. Oh God, what an experience! I will never forget this ride. But you know what was the best part about this bike trip to Ladakh? The ride operators were so cool! and so approachable! The mechanics were very knowledgeable. The bikes performed well. And we rode them on such diverse kinds of roads so it was amazing that not even one broke down midway. Even while off-roading and river crossing, the whole thing was so much fun!!! I would do it again and again each year. Thanks, Adventure Nation for making this possible!

A bike trip to Ladakh is not the easiest of things to accomplish but all its difficulty fades away in the face of how satisfying it is when you finish the whole thing and not just that...even while you're on it, even while you're riding all the way to Ladakh you're feeling amazing no matter how hard the terrain looks like. And then there are particular moments in the bike trip that make you feel extra spectacular, especially camping in Nubra and looking at Pangong lake. Waking up to a sunrise at Pangong Tso is one of the best visuals to feast your eyes on! Thanks for this experience, Adventure Nation.

The most important part of a bike trip to anywhere is how much you can rely on the bikes. Because I have been on many bike trips before and twice to Ladakh, if your bike is giving you problems even after the test ride and getting it initially checked, then the trip is going to be tiring. That's why I wanted to make sure I go with the best guys. I booked this trek through Adventure Nation for a departure in August. Adventure Nation put us with the best bike trip operators in the game, thanks so much! Whole trip was so tension-free, thanks to that. The operators have been doing it for the longest time so they have an idea of what they are trying to do here! Thanks again!!!

My bike trip to Ladakh was my bachelor's trip as a last trip with the boys right before my wedding. To say the least, it was so good and so refreshing, it was the best thing I could've asked for. I LOVED everything about it. The rental bikes were great and in great shape to be driven down bumpy roads or good roads or river bed roads or off-roading altogether. And I had all these experiences on this trip! This one was such a delight, by the end we were already making plans to revisit. Thanks so much Adventure Nation for making this so special!

Almost a lifelong dream, this biking trip was so long due. Honestly, it will stay fresh in my memories for a long time from now. Loved the people that went with us. Almost ten of us were there. Out of which three were my friends who I had planned this trip with. Man, thanks for the amazing service. The bikes were in great shape and the food and the staying arrangement was also taken care of in the best way possible. This is why I chose you, Adventure Nation.

This is my first time on a biking trip but second time with Adventure Nation. Last time I went to Hampta pass trek. Had amazing fun there as well. This time it was a blast! It was so much fun with all the people including the staff that was with us to look after the bikes and our food and accommodations. I am still so excited. Never had a better experience.

We covered close to 2500 kms on our bike tour to Ladakh. The route we were given was great, because it covered most of the picturesque trails that we were hoping to ride through. We also camped along side Pangong Tso lake, which was definitely the best campsite. Remember to pack light because you will not need as much clothes as you will need biking gear and other necessary stuff. Also, get some experience of long bike rides before you do this because it will tire you a little sometimes. But we always stuck to the plan till the end!

Take the ride of your life but plan adequately before you decide to go. Better to book through an agency like Adventure Nation, because we were given a detailed itinerary and full mechanical support throughout. And you don't have to carry extra stuff like camping materials and all if you go with them. Also if you are going solo it is safer to go with these guys because you will definitely find some rider friends. Amazing trip. Ladakh is a beauty obviously, and the winds that touch you when you ride through it will give you a feeling out of this world.

I have made two trips to Ladakh before this. Once was on a vacation, and the other time was a biking trip. This time I booked through Adventure Nation along with two of my friends. What a fun time. Had amazing time there. The itinerary was great and we did not have to look around for accommodation and meals as it was all taken care of. Amazing! Thanks for the time.

“ Thank you JustWravel for giving me one of my best �first group-trip� experience - All-Girls Spiti Valley trip! I was a bit nervous before the trip began, but within no time, I realised that this was the best decision I took for myself. Saurav was a really friendly and easy-going trip leader and Mani Bhai was the sweetest local guide ever, who drove us around and also developed such a lovely bond with us. Both of them took great care of the group. Felt like family! ?? Lovely stay and food arrangements - never faced an issue even once. Most memorable trip! Thankyou! ”

“ I booked my first community trip with Justwravel and it was my best trip so far. I went on the Spiti Valley all girls trip. The accommodations and transport were very good. Everything was on time and I have no complains on the arrangements. We covered all the places according to the itinerary. Our trip captain Saurav Rawat was amazing. He handled all the situations perfectly and made sure we were safe and comfortable at all times. He connected with us instantly and made us feel at home. I had the best time for the entire 10 days. Special thanks to Mani Bhayya for taking us safely to all the places and making sure we have an amazing time in the tempo while travelling. I definitely recommend everyone to try Justwravel and I am looking forward to many more trips with them!! ”

“ I recently did a trip to Leh Ladakh with JustWravel team, and boy, was it an experience for a lifetime! The trip leaders - Geetanjali, Ashish, Shashank - took such good care of the travellers. The team's thoughtfulness and local experience really shone through in the way the itinerary was planned. Plenty of photo opportunities, and daily briefings to prepare us for the unfamiliar climate and terrains of Ladakh. We had sufficient time for rest & recuperation and the accommodations provided were the best-possible, given the environmental conditions in that particular region. Really glad I did this trip solo and chose to go ahead with JustWravel's expertise. All we had to do was show up and the team ensured that we would have a great time - exploring the destinations and clicking away pictures of the beautiful mountains, valleys & lakes. Special shoutout to Geetanjali who really helped keep the spirits high and thanks to her, a group of strangers just felt like long-lost friends. Truly a memorable trip! ”

“ Went for 11D/10N Ladakh Trip with Just Wravel. Had amazing time with a great bunch of people, who were complete strangers at the beginning of the trip. Just Wravel has a well curated itinerary that covers all important sights but also leaves enough time for personal relaxation/exploration. Our Trip leaders: sashang and abhishek ashish were helpful and available throughout the duration of trip. Safety of Bikers was ensured, through the entire duration of trip.

“ Just when I wanted a break, not actually a break rather an experience, JustWravel popped up in my Google Search, that too with options like backpacking grps, all girls with pick up and drop location at Delhi, so I booked the All Girls Spiti Valley Trip (01/07/2023) with JustWravel.Our entire trip went very smooth until the last day in Manali (09/07/2023) when Himachal was hit by the Natural Calamity. By God's grace our entire group was very much safe in Manali. The agency handled our extended stays (3days) in Manali hotel, including meals, travel and everything. Our trip leader Mehek Mahajan kept us always updated and was always there to support us in every way plausible. She even suggested to book tickets from Chandigarh as Delhi was flooded too, most of us did that and reached home safely. Inspite all these, the journey to Spiti Valley was indelible. And one thing is for sure, next time if I get to travel I'll again choose JustWravel. ”

“ I had the most amazing trip experience to kashmir under the leadership of Omer. Traveling with him was an absolute pleasure. His warm and friendly personality created a positive and inclusive atmosphere among the group. His extensive knowledge and love for the local culture added a special touch to our journey. He was always available to answer questions, address concerns, and provide valuable insights about the destinations we visited. Thank you, Omer for making this an unforgettable experience. I highly recommend anyone to travel under his guidance looking for a memorable and expertly organized travel experience. ”

When it comes to a Leh Ladakh bike trip, it’s a known fact that the majority of people have it reserved on top of their bucket list. It has been decades since Ladakh first opened its route for travelers and yet it is still renowned as a bikers paradise.  The main reason is that a bike trip to Ladakh encompasses both adventure and peace. On one hand, you get to traverse through different terrains with the landscape in the backdrop changing from the lush green valleys of Kullu to the cold deserts of Ladakh. On the other hand, the dramatic shift in the culture that you witness as you move on this bike trip to Leh from Manali also is one of the reasons why so many travelers wait for Ladakh season to commence.  The Leh Manali route is one that many adventure seekers opt for simply because of the rugged terrain with the majestic view of the Himalayas in the backdrop. Since the route from Manali to Leh stretches to approx 474Kms of land, it also allows riders to have the experience of the ultimate road trip on one of the most popular highways of India. 

Another reason why many travelers prefer to go to Leh Ladakh from Manali is because of all the popular attractions they get to witness throughout their journey. After all, Ladakh bike trips are known to provide people with diverse experiences, part of which comes from the landmarks that adorn the trail that leads you to Leh. In this itinerary, we’ve curated an experience that consists of some of the best places to visit in Ladakh and have also made sure that the ride leading up to Leh from Manali is just as exciting as spending your days in the Land of High passes.  We first make our way from Manali with the stunning views of Kullu valley accompanying us throughout the ride until we reach Sarchu , which is a major halt point for all travelers and riders who embark on a Ladakh bike trip for acclimatization purposes. At an altitude of 13,783 ft, Sarchu serves as an ideal tented accommodation amid the Himalayas and gives you the first glimpse at the barrenness that Ladakh is known for. En route Sarchu, you’d be traversing through Baralacha La pass which, nestled at an altitude of 15,912 ft, is one of the most popular high motorable passes in the Zanskar range. 

The best part about going to Leh from Manali is that the journey takes two days which allows you more time to explore Ladakh as much as you want and make the most out of your experience. As you move towards Leh from Sarchu, the trail becomes dirt-ridden and bumpy up until you reach More plains which is a vast stretch of plain land as opposed to the jagged terrains that you ride throughout your Ladakh bike trip. The terrain remains straight for approximately 35 kilometers up until the point you come across Tanglang La pass which is when you’d start to feel the rise in the road as the pass is nestled at an altitude of 17,480ft.  Soon after you’d reach Upshi which is one of the highest civilized settlements in India. The small village which lies along the pristine Indus river is the last milestone you traverse through before finally reaching Leh.  When it comes to Leh, there’s no limit to the outburst of a vibrant culture that you get to witness here. As the largest city in Ladakh, it is the ultimate stop for travelers to feed on local cuisine, shop for souvenirs and get in touch with the locals. Naturally, a Leh sightseeing tour is a significant part of any Ladakh bike trip which is why we’ve included some of the must-visit places in Leh on this trip.  Starting from Shey Palace which is an abode to a 12 meters tall copper Buddha statue gilded with gold expanding to three floors of the monastery. Apart from the statue, the monastery also holds thangka paintings as well as centuries-old manuscripts that have been preserved for ages now. Afterward, we will visit Thiksey Monastery which is the largest gompa in central Ladakh and holds extreme religious significance as the temple inside the monastery was commemorated by the Dalai Lama himself in 1970. It also has the largest statue of Maitreya Buddha which is as tall as a two-story building.  The last stop in the Leh sightseeing day would be Shanti Stupa , a white-domed pristine structure nestled at an altitude of 11,841 feet that offers a stunning panoramic view of the entire district. It also holds ancient relics of Buddha in its embrace and is one of the most popular attractions of Ladakh. 

Although Ladakh is mostly popular among biking enthusiasts and has branded itself to be a place that offers off-roading adventures, there are many other activities that a few hidden gems of Ladakh offer. One of them is Nubra Valley , which offers the opportunity for people to indulge in ATV rides as well as Bactrian camel safari rides as the double hump camel is found only here. Apart from that Nubra has also known for its river beds and the ride to Nubra from Leh consists of traversing through yet another iconic pass which is Khardung La pass. At an altitude of 18,379ft, it is one of the highest motorable passes in the world and is a gateway to the Shyok and Nubra valleys. The next stop in this Ladakh bike trip package is the iconic Pangong lake. Popularized after featuring in many Bollywood movies including 3 Idiots, the lake is also known to have fascinating qualities such as that it changes color according to the direction of the sun and that despite being a saltwater lake, it freezes completely. En route to Pangong, we’d pay a visit to Diskit Monastery which is the oldest and largest gompa in Nubra valley and is notable for its 32-meter tall Buddha statue that overlooks the Shyok river.  It also has a lot of frescoes, paintings, and statues that are symbols of the Buddhist culture that is prevalent throughout the valley.  As we started this Leh bike trip from Manali covering one route that leads you to Ladakh, for the return journey we take you through the Leh Srinagar route, and in this way, you get to experience the best of both routes to Ladakh. 

As we head from Leh to Kargil which is the second-largest city in Ladakh, we’d be traversing through many iconic passes including Fotu La pass which nestled at an altitude of 13,478ft is the highest point on the Srinagar Leh highway surpassing the otherwise iconic Zoji La pass which is at an altitude of 11,575ft. The other pass between Leh and Kargil is Namika La which is at an altitude of 12,139 ft. Apart from all these passes of the Zanskar range of the Himalayas, you also get to visit some other popular attractions in Ladakh.  The first one is Gurudwara Patthar Ganj Sahib which is dedicated to the ninth Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak Sahib. Although Buddhism is largely practiced in the entire region, the gurudwara attracts devotees from all over the world, and many Buddhists also come here to pay their reverence. The place of worship is maintained by the Indian Army and has extreme spiritual and historical significance associated with it like many other Gurudwara that provide regular Langar, Patthar sahib too offers it to all those who visit it. 

Another popular attraction of Ladakh that you get to visit when you’re traversing through the Srinagar - Leh route is the Magnetic Hill which is believed to be a gravity-defying phenomenon. It is believed that when driving in a certain spot, your vehicle travels uphill even if you’re driving in the opposite direction. Although it has been said that there is a brilliant optical illusion at play, the popularity of magnetic hills has only increased in recent years.

Last but not least is The Hall of Fame , which is a museum dedicated to all the martyrs who lost their lives during the many battles that occurred post-partition along with the Kargil war that happened in 1999. The Hall of Fame is a reminder of the many sacrifices that Ladakh has witnessed in the past. The museum has a wall named “The Last Post” which has all the letters written by soldiers in their last few days before they lost their lives in the Kargil war.  As you leave Kargil behind, you’d yet again witness the contrasting landscape that this bike trip is popular from. The barren cold desert of Ladakh will soon be replaced by the lush green meadows of Kashmir as you move toward Srinagar.

This Ladakh bike trip package gives people a chance to embark on a full-circuit bike trip ride throughout Ladakh. The best time to go on this Leh Ladakh bike trip is from the months of June to September as all the passes that connect different valleys which you’d be passing through in this bike trip open after May when the snow melts away to give way for authorities to restore the many high passes that Ladakh is known for. 

Overall, this Ladakh bike trip package starting from Manali and ending in Srinagar encompasses everything that you’d imagine for your dream trip to be and hence needs to be ticked off of your bucket list as soon as possible.

What are some precautions we need to take when on a bike trip to Ladakh?

As you travel to higher altitudes, your body doesn't get enough oxygen which is the main cause of AMS. This can easily be avoided if one keeps drinking water, stays hydrated, and intakes enough carbohydrate-rich foods to keep the body warm.

Another thing to keep in mind when traveling to Ladakh is that you need to wear proper layers so that your body temperature is maintained.

Most importantly, make sure you cover your ears when traversing through the high passes as the chances of you getting hit by AMS, motion sickness, and the possibility of you getting pain or discomfort are extremely high while ascending.

Does it get difficult to breathe in Ladakh?

Nestled at an elevation of almost 11,500 ft Ladakh is a high-altitude region and if you're traveling from the plains, then you will start to face some difficulty as the atmospheric pressure drops. As a result, there is less oxygen in the air the higher you go.

You might get hit by a wave of AMS (Acute Mountain Sickness) where your symptoms would breathlessness would be a major symptom while the other symptoms would include headache, nausea, vomiting, indigestion, and more. It is important to keep drinking water and give your body at least a day so that it can get acclimatized properly.

In most cases, people abruptly feel the changes while some people will acclimatize easily. For some people, it can take the whole first day. But in case of flying in, we do recommend 1-day of complete rest in Leh.

Additionally, for precautionary measures, one needs to spend at least 24-48 hours at rest in Leh to get acclimatized properly.

What is special about Kargil and Dras?

The Kargil War fought in 1999 against Pakistan is a testimonial to the raw courage and strength of The Indian Army. A War memorial to honor the sacrifices made by our brave soldiers is situated in Drass and is a must-visit place when traveling to Ladakh.

The Top 10 National Bike Road Trips to Explore

A s an avid biker who lives for the open road, I've had the privilege of traversing some of the most stunning routes across India. And let me tell you - this country has landscapes that will take your breath away! From rugged mountain passes blanketed in snow to sun-kissed coastal drives, India offers a biker's paradise.

Over the years, I've explored famous circuits like - 

  • Manali to Leh stretch
  • Chamba to Sach Pass and many more.

I've battled challenging terrain, pitched tents under starry skies, and discovered quaint towns lost in time. 

Now, I want to share my top 10 favorite national bike road trips that should be on every rider's bucket list.

These routes promise gorgeous vistas, adrenaline-pumping adventures, interactions with friendly locals, delectable food discoveries, and so much more! 

I've covered

  • Best time to visit
  • Road conditions, duration
  • What to see and do on the way

All the insider tips to ensure your ride is smooth, safe and filled with memories for a lifetime.

So, let's start the engines and ride into the heart of incredible India!

1. Manali – Leh – Srinagar Motorcycle Tour

  • Best Touring Season : June to September
  • Estimated Duration: 12-14 Days
  • Route : Manali- Keylong – Sarchu – Leh – Pangong Lake- Nubra valley – Leh – Kargil - Srinagar
  • Scenic Beauty : Navigate Nature's grandeur, featuring towering mountains, serene lakes, and captivating valleys.

I recently embarked on the ultimate adventure - the Manali – Leh – Srinagar Motorcycle Tour. As a long-time motorcycle enthusiast, it was a dream journey for me through the majestic landscapes of Ladakh. Nestled in the Northern part of India, Ladakh is a true haven for bikers, surrounded by awe-inspiring Trans Himalayan mountain ranges.

I prepared myself for an adventure of a lifetime as I navigated through high-altitude mountain passes that took my breath away. I traversed broken bridges that got my adrenaline pumping. And I conquered off-road challenges that tested my grit and determination, but filled me with immense satisfaction.

Roughly 50% of the roads were smooth tarmac, while the rest offered thrilling off-road experiences. This was not just a bike trip for me - it was a test of will and courage amidst Ladakh's unparalleled beauty. The vistas of mountain peaks and valleys are forever etched in my memory.

  • Estimated Duration : 7-10 Days
  • Route : Manali – Kaza – Tabo – Nako – Sangla – Chitkul – Sarahan – Shimla (and optionally, Delhi or Chandigarh)
  • Scenic Beauty : Explore the rugged beauty of Spiti Valley, surrounded by towering mountains, ancient monasteries, and enchanting landscapes.

Riding through Spiti Valley on my motorcycle was an epic adventure I'll never forget. I kicked off my tour from Shimla and rode onto Manali, where the real thrill began. The route takes you through some incredible destinations - remote villages like Kaza and Tabo, the serene Nako lake, trekker havens like Sangla and Chitkul, and the quaint little town of Sarahan.

I'd say about 70% of the route from Manali to Kaza was actually rideable for me. There were definitely some tough stretches too along that picturesque but bone-rattling mountainous terrain. 

The whole tour took me around 7 days but I was taking plenty of breaks for the gorgeous views and to meet the friendly locals. An experienced biker could do it in maybe 10 days.

3. Chamba – Sach Pass – Pangi Valley motorcycle tour

  • Estimated Duration : 10-12 Days
  • Route : Dharamshala – Doda – Kishtwar – Killar – Sach Pass – Chamba – Manali (and then optionally to Chandigarh or New Delhi)
  • Scenic Beauty : Experience the rugged beauty of Pangi Valley, encountering the treacherous Sach Pass on the journey from Killar to Chamba.

I'm always up for adventure on my motorcycle and my ride through Chamba, Sach Pass and Pangi Valley was one of my craziest exploits yet! This circuit is no walk in the park - bikers call the rugged Pangi terrain the "mother of all difficult roads". 

Parts of it boast the title of being the world's most dangerous road. Suffice to say the Himalayas dished out undoubtedly the toughest challenge for us riders!

The expedition starts from the scenic hill station of Chamba, leading me through exotic spots like Dharamshala, Kishtwar, quaint little Killar village and finally the breathtaking Sach Pass. The highlight was undoubtedly conquering Sach Pass - at 4400+ meters, crossing this high mountain pass tested every bit of my riding skill and determination! 

From there I rode downhill to the Parvati Valley and concluded my tour in the adventure biker haven, Manali. You can opt to end your tour at Chandigarh or Delhi too via different routes.

  • Best Touring Season : November to February
  • Estimated Duration: 7-10 Days
  • Route : Jaipur – Udaipur – Jaisalmer – Pushkar – Jodhpur – Ajmer
  • Scenic Beauty : Immerse yourself in the rich cultural tapestry, vibrant festivals, royal charm, and heritage richness of Rajasthan.

Rajasthan has been high up on my wishlist as a motorcycling destination. On my bike, I got the chance to dive deep into the best of Rajasthan's rich cultural experiences across regal cities like Jaipur, Udaipur, Jodhpur and beyond.

Cruising through Jaipur was a riot of colors - the vibrant markets with their glittering trinkets and fabrics were reminiscent of the grandeur of Rajasthan's royalty. In Udaipur, I lost myself witnessing gorgeous sunsets against the backdrop of the Pichola Lake.

Jaisalmer truly overwhelmed me with its golden desert landscape and intricately carved havelis. I found solace among the spiritual vibes in Pushkar and liberation watching the sunset from the Savitri temple. 

The regal architecture in Jodhpur took me back to the era of mighty Rajput warriors. And finally, paying respects at the Ajmer Sharif Dargah was a sublime experience.

Rajasthan unfolded itself as a rich sensory experience blending heritage with scenic vistas. Being on my motorcycle, steered gently along twisting roads surrounded by Aravallis on one side and golden sand dunes on the other, felt nothing short of liberating.

Around each corner was a new visual delicacy - from bustling local bazaars to quaint hamlets to ornate palaces.

  • Best Touring Season : Throughout the year
  • Estimated Duration : Short-duration ride
  • Route : Mumbai – Coastal Highway – Alibaug – Murud – Dapoli – Anjarle – Guhagar – Ganpatipule – Tarkarli – Goa
  • Scenic Beauty : Experience the raw beauty of the Konkan Coast, with its small fishing villages, narrow roads, authentic cuisine, and pristine beaches.

You know which bike ride has stuck with me as one of my all-time favourites in India? Riding the Konkan coastal route from Mumbai down to Goa. Now I've done a fair bit of touring across India, but that stretch along the Arabian sea was just something else!

Instead of taking one of the main highways, I decided to take the scenic coastal road. And I'll tell you, that was one of the best decisions on two wheels! I simply took my time meandering through twisty palm-fringed roads overlooking endless white sand beaches on one side and the bluest sea on the other.

It was such a rejuvenating experience, just riding breezily from one fishing village to the next - exploring little seaside temples, grabbing freshly caught fish at local markets, stopping for cutting chai with villagers under shady trees. No busy tourist crowds anywhere, can you imagine! Each place more picture-perfect than the next, makes you feel like you're starring in a dang music video or something.

And with the forests, beaches, seafood, the Konkan has got its own special coastal culture. The locals dishes out such warm hospitality too. The 10 days I spent riding through rural coastal Maharashtra and northern Goa gave me memories and stories that'll last a lifetime!

  • Estimated Duration : 14 Days
  • Route : Chennai – Mahabalipuram – Pondicherry – Kolli Hills – Ooty – Madhumalai & Bandipur Tiger Reserves – Coorg – Chikkamagalur – Hampi – Goa
  • Scenic Beauty : Explore diverse landscapes, including ancient temples, tea gardens, wildlife reserves, coffee plantations, and enchanting beaches.

Riding through South India has been a dream trip on my motorcycle bucket list for as long as I can remember. The chance of experiencing the region's diversity - from ancient history to beaches, lush jungles, hill station vistas and more - makes this an epic cross-country adventure ride in my books.

And when I finally got to go from Chennai down to Goa, it did not disappoint! Whether I was negotiating the 70 breathtaking hairpin bends up Kolli Hills or stopping for coffee at a plantation in Coorg - the route was chock full of magic around every corner.  

Temple hopping through magnificent Hampi ruins, crossing the Western Ghats multiple times and even hoping to glimpse tigers in Bandipur - talk about non-stop highlights!

Now I'll admit the two week journey wasn't all smooth sailing in terms of roads or terrain. But a bit of adventure is part of the package deal when exploring areas off the beaten tourist track! For every bumpy patch, I was rewarded with stunning scenery and warm local hospitality.

  • Best Touring Season : April to June, September to November
  • Estimated Duration : 7-8 Days
  • Route : Gangtok – Lachen – Gurudongmar Lake – Nathula Pass – Zuluk – Gangtok
  • Scenic Beauty : Explore steep and narrow roads, ancient Silk Routes, and captivating destinations such as Gurudongmar Lake, Nathula Pass, Thangu Valley, and Zuluk.

The North East India motorcycle tour from Gangtok to Zuluk is one epic ride every biking enthusiast should have on their bucket list. Starting in the hill station of Gangtok, you get to soak in sights like the colorful Rumtek monastery before the real adventure begins.

As you start the ascent towards Lachen, get ready for adrenaline rushing through steep and narrow roads with breathtaking views of the Himalayan peaks. Reaching the sacred Gurudongmar Lake at 17,800 feet is the most spiritual highlight of this trip. However, caution is advised as the road has very tricky terrain.

Crossing historic mountain passes like Nathula la, once part of the ancient Silk Route, fills one with a sense of wonder. Imagine traversing the same high mountain pathways that traders once took between Tibet and India!

The former Silk Route settlement of Zuluk at around 10,000 feet offers a glimpse into the past too. As you ride through mountain hamlets like Aritar and Dzuluk, it is not difficult to envision caravans making their way through the same valleys.

  • Best Touring Season : October to March
  • Route : Goa – Dandeli – Hampi – Badami – Aihole – Pattadakal – Goa
  • Scenic Beauty : Experience the diverse landscapes, from Goa's beaches to the historical treasures of Hampi, Badami, Aihole, and Pattadakal.

For any motorcycle enthusiast who also loves history, the Heritage Tour from Goa to Pattadakal is a dream ride through some of India's most significant archaeological wonders.

Start by soaking in the tropical vibes of Goa's world-famous beaches, before gearing up for the journey of a lifetime. The next stop is the emerald jungles of Dandeli, where a tiger sighting will get your adrenaline pumping!

But it's Hampi that will truly captivate you - the ancient capital of the Vijayanagara empire with over 500 stunning monuments. Wandering through temple ruins that date back to the 14th century fills one with awe!

The magical ride continues to Badami, Chalukya capital known for its iconic red sandstone cave temples. Just down the road is Aihole, home to over 70 structures including the incredible 5th century Durga Temple.

Last stop is the architectural treasure trove of Pattadakal - with a complex of 8th century temples that made UNESCO's World Heritage list.

As you ride past these magnificent testaments to Indian temple architecture spanning different eras - the 4-5 day journey becomes a vivid dive into the past! For any motorcycle lover who enjoys history and architecture, this is an unforgettable trip that is equal parts recreational and educational.

  • Best Touring Season : September to March
  • Estimated Duration : 12 Days
  • Route : Kochi – Wayanad – Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary – Idukki – Munnar – Periyar National Park – Eravikulam National Park – Alleppey – Varkala Beach – Kochi
  • Scenic Beauty : Traverse through coffee plantations in Wayanad, the tropical forests of Western Ghats, tea plantations in Munnar, and the tranquil backwaters of Alleppey.

Kerala is every motorcyclist's paradise, offering diverse landscapes, vibrant culture and abundant wildlife. The ultimate ride through God's Own Country begins in Kochi, an ancient port town with a rich colonial past.

As you make your way inland, the route takes you through captivating terrain - from the lush rainforests of Wayanad to the stark natural beauty of Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary. The gushing waterfalls around Idukki make for a picturesque pitstop.

Adding to the magic is Kerala's living heritage, best experienced through dance forms like Kathakali or the ancient martial art of Kalaripayattu. Wildlife enthusiasts can look forward to spotting elephants, tigers, lions and exotic birds in sanctuaries like Periyar and Eravikulam.

After days filled with history, adventure and natural splendour, Alleppey's serene backwaters provide the perfect retreat. Conclude the epic 2 week tour soaking in the tropical vibes of Varkala beach, with its clifftop cafes and red laterite cliffs.

Riding through God's Own Country is no ordinary motorcycle journey, but an odyssey where culture, landscapes and wildlife cast an enchanting spell at every mile.

10. Tiger Trails of Southern India

  • Best Touring Season : November to March
  • Estimated Duration : 12-15 Days
  • Route : Bangalore – Valparai – Athirapally Falls (Via Parambikulam Tiger Reserve) – Periyar Tiger Reserve – Vagamon – Wayanad Tiger Reserve – Tholpetty National Park – Mudumalai Tiger Reserve – Bandipur Tiger Reserve – Bhadra Tiger Reserve – Dandeli Tiger Reserve – Goa

Wildlife Highlights

In total, you will cover around 7-8 tiger reserves, each offering a unique glimpse into the incredible biodiversity of Southern India. It's a journey into the heart of India's wild and untamed landscapes.

Travel document requirements can vary depending on your nationality and the specific places you plan to visit. However, for a motorcycle tour through the mentioned places in Southern India, here are some general documents you should consider:

  • Passport: Ensure it's valid for at least six months.

You can also, consider consulting a travel advisor or local authorities for any specific regulations related to wildlife reserves and national parks.

When it comes to epic motorcycle touring, the one ride that never lets me down is my trusted Bajaj Dominar 400. I've taken my hardy Dominar on countless expeditions - from the serene beaches of the Konkan coast to the towering mountains of Ladakh and many routes in between.

While planning these trips across various terrains, I consciously chose the Dominar 400 for its perfect blend of features suited to long distance touring. Its powerful 373cc engine makes light work of even steep uphill climbs to places like the Kolli Hills while maintaining stability on hairpin bends or broken village trails.

The comfortable upright riding position and reasonable weight makes many hours in the saddle effortless, without compromising maneuverability or balance. Even with pillion riders and luggage loaded up for weeks on the road, my Dominar 400 takes on any challenge the road throws our way.

Add the Dominar's respectable fuel efficiency figures while even having a top speed of up to 155 kmph where permissible. For me, it really is the ideal motorcycle for exploring the diverse landscapes India has to offer - dependable, practical and pumped up for adventure! 

Test ride one on your next touring holiday and I assure you, the Dominar 400 won't disappoint.

To wind up, the open road beckons with its promises of adventure, discovery, and the thrill of exploration. 

The top 10 national bike road trips presented here are not just routes; they are gateways to unforgettable experiences. From the majestic landscapes of Ladakh to the cultural tapestry of Rajasthan, the rugged terrains of Pangi Valley to the coastal charm of Konkan, each journey is a testament to the incredible diversity that India offers to motorcycle enthusiasts.

As you venture on these road trips, remember that the journey is as important as the destination. Whether navigating challenging mountain passes, cruising along coastal highways, or delving into the rich heritage of historical sites, every twist and turn brings a new chapter to your adventure.

Preparation is key, so ensure you have the necessary documents, permits, and a spirit ready for the unexpected. These road trips are not just about the roads; they are about connecting with the soul of the diverse and vibrant landscapes of India.
