Leh to Khardungla | Local Sight Seeing | 80 km

Stay: Hotel | Cycling: 80km | Altitude 5360 Meters

Based on our last 5 years of experience, we have seen the riders feel content when they reach Leh. So they prefer to go sightseeing rather than attempt to climb to Khardungla.

Riders who wish to climb will leave early at 6 am for breakfast to leave for the Khardungla Pass, the world’s highest mountain pass. We cycle through the scenic valley on the world’s second-highest motorable road to the top of this journey with a sense of achievement that has no parallel. Celebrate this moment of pride and success with your bike and your fellow riders. Ride back to our hotel in Leh for the dinner celebration and to celebrate the completion of the tour.

Riders who go sightseeing for you taxi shall come to the hotel to pick you up and make you explore Magnetic Hill, Monastery, and the confluence of rivers where you can do adventure sports activities if you wish too. The lunch or any other adventure activity expense during the travel is of the rider himself or herself.

Drive back to our hotel in Leh for the dinner celebration and to celebrate the completion of the tour.
