Be it the call of the mystical mountains, pristine blue sky, or bewitching landscapes – the natural scenic beauty of Ladakh is what attracts travellers from all around. 

It is a land of eclectic adventure options right from camping, trekking, river rafting, to biking on ‘the land of high passes.’ You don’t ride in Ladakh, you soar! At Thrillophilia, we love to curate these eclectic adventures and we have designed one with KTM 390 Adventure bikes. So if you are coming to Ladakh soon, you will get to experience the authentic colours and traditions of Ladakh with a thrilling riding experience! One that is curated specially for the biker inside you.

I am part of all that I have met…

  • Ulysses, Alfred Lord Tennyson

We are essentially a sum total of wherever we go and whosoever we meet. Some say and we believe that “people are the product of the content they consume”. In Ladakh, the biking spirit is evident to all visitors. Gauging into that insight, we provide a unique experience of exploring the local culture, while enjoying the freedom to stride your way on a KTM 390 Adventure bike, because why not? No feeling is better than finding yourself again on a roaring bike. The native culture of Ladakhi people is influenced by Tibetan culture and Buddhism. One can easily spot many similarities between the two. The combined experience reveals a sense of peace and tranquility that can only get highlighted in Ladakh.

Thrillophilia’s KTM 390 Adventure Biking Trip Schedule

This adventure tour covers a total distance of 2300 kms in about two weeks; taking you through a variety of terrains. All our riders love the diverse topography of Ladakh that is equally challenging for an experienced as well as an amateur biker. A featherweight bike like KTM 390 proves quite successful here as it performs efficiently in the heterogeneous turfs.

Chandigarh to Nubra: A Potluck Of Cultures

In addition to the unique experience of gliding through eight distinct locations, this adventure tour also familiarises you with their strikingly different cultures. To begin with Chandigarh, it is the cultural capital of Punjab and Haryana. Apart from the famous tourist attractions like Rock Garden and Sukhna Lake, the city offers several exhibitions and art performances. Most of the people in Chandigarh are Punjabis and super fun to hangout with! 


In addition to the cultural richness, Chandigarh is known for its vibrant nightlife. Whereas Manali is known for its quaint beauty and peaceful environment. Manali has been a popular backpacking and honeymoon destination and offers a number of mountain adventure options. One can go for skiing in the Soland valley, trekking in the Parvati valley, and paragliding in the Pir Panjal mountains (lately popularised by Vipin Sahu for his hilarious paragliding video, bhai land kara de).

The life of Ladakhi people is not at all easy, hardships are an everyday part of their lifestyle. The ‘goucha’ clad men and ‘kuntop and bok’ clad women of this land revel in their own fashion. The folk culture of Ladakh is quite evident at various tourist attractions and public places. Chham, lharna, and jabro are some of their popular dance forms and the locals perform them in festivities and other occasions.  

Delicacies Of Ladakh

The local cuisine of Ladakh is strongly influenced by Tibetan culture. Momo, thukpa, and skyu are widely available in Ladakh. Items used for domestic and religious purposes are created locally by the artisans and the females are involved in creating stone and silver jewelry.
