Fantabulous time spent in the lap of the mountains, our entire cycling group had gone together and we enjoyed immensely. The cycling trip was really difficult at some time but the feel of it was really good. so positivity and cycling through high passes and snow clad peaks was really good. even the camping was good. after a long day of cycling they served us really good food everyday . The group leaders were also very helpful and were able to handle the fairly large group with utmost ease.

Rougher dirt tracks needs to be covered. Along with this we also made some very tough climbs. The descents were gut-wrenching yet interesting. If you think that it is very stressful, the distance we covered were somewhat less. It almost ranged from 40 to 80 km on an average. However, the traversing altitudes were over 4000 m. To be honest, if you are not an avid cycler, this can be really tedious and dangerous too. Also, with the altitude and weather conditions, I felt quite dizzy and easily dehydrated. If you are planning to do this, make sure to have great physical fitness. That all being said, this trip was fruitful.

A memorable trip with my friends. I thought a lot before booking this trip. But my friends told me I had to have good physical fitness to protect myself from the cold and everything else will be fine. Thus I joined the team. There were other tourists also with us. Together we had a good time in an amazing place. Though I like to take photographs, most of the times I forgot to click the pictures because I wanted to enjoy the beauty of Ladakh with my naked eyes. I was asking the guide with us to explain the importance of each location we covered. He has been guiding a hundred teams for last some years, so he knew everything about the location and he even clearly knew when we should camp and when we should stop cycling and all. The team with him was very supportive and helping. Totally, a very good trip.

A great deal of energy and physical fitness is needed to cycle for 14 days continuously and it will not be easy if you are not fond of cycling through difficult plains. We had the maximum fun throughout the trip because we were a team of cyclists. The big challenge was to cross the passes at a high altitude. But nothing to worry, the guides’ team was with us throughout and they helped us by providing water and biscuits in between. A backup vehicle was also there. We camped at some places with a campfire to keep us protected from the severe cold. The best time of our life was happening there.

Comparing to other Ladakh trips, this was a short trip for 10 days but all the ten days of it offered the best it could. We saw the nature changing itself during the trip. It was an incomparable view. Cycling was the most exciting part of the trip. The rough roads were a challenge but had a great time.

A happy trip was it for me. We prepared well before the cycling trip happened. Exercised and tried to get acclimatized by reaching Manali two days before the trip started. The food provided by the team was good, the camping was also flawless. I am looking forward to have a similar trip this year as well.
