A biking trip in Ladakh will take you through challenging roads and breathtaking sceneries, making all your rider’s dreams come true. Some popular sites to cover in your trip are: Pangong Tso Lake, Nubra Valley, Magnetic Hill and Khardung La Pass. Choose your route depending on how much time you have available and prepare for hitting the road on one of the most unforgettable road trips of your life.
If you are not from India, Indian road conditions are likely to be very different from what you are used to at home, so take a day or two to ride around and get used to the local ways. If you are renting your bike while in India, make sure to also take it on a test drive to ensure that it is as good as what it’s being sold as. Of course, you will always need to carry your driving license with you, as well as the corresponding international driving license. Finally, you will be riding in high altitudes so be careful with altitude sickness and be aware of its symptoms. Carry adequate medicine and hydrate sufficiently.
