Route 2: Leh to Nubra Valley via Wari La

Send Enquiry
This is the ideal route for those who’re feeling up to an adventure as well a challenge. It is a more difficult and much lesser known route from Leh to Nubra Valley. The route via Wari La is not only more daunting but also more time to consume compared to the Khardung La route.

The road is not used a lot and is broken in certain places. You will essentially be driving on dirt and rocks, occasionally, even water. This road will be closed in June due to heavy snowfall at the Pass. Bear in mind that is it not one of your regular high altitude passes.

Perched atop 17,400 ft., Wari La pass is very difficult to navigate. Especially the last 20 km of the pass is very, very steep. In addition to that, you have several water crossings awaiting the trail.
There are no villages here to stop and snack at, until Sakti, which you can reach only after having crossed Wari La. 


That said, there’s little else that compares to the thrill of crossing the infamous Wari La Pass! You get starkly different terrains and views to boast about, along with an adventure of a lifetime.
If you’re a skilled biker, and not faint of heart, the Wari La Pass route, being one of the best places to visit on your Leh trip, is definitely something to consider.

Some might even choose to take the Khardung La route to Nubra, and the Wari La route to return to Leh. 

1. Ride from Leh to Taktok.
2. Continue along Taktok to Pangong Tso via Chang La. Pangong Tso lake is a beautiful lake cradled right between India and Tibet, which is visible on the other side. 
3. From Taktok take the road toward Khalsar.
4. Once you’ve crossed Khalsar, take the road leading to Agam village.
5. From Agam village, you’ll reach a fork in the road, with the left one leading to Shyok village, and the right one heading towards Wari La. Take the right one.

Best time for Leh to Nubra Valley Trip

Send Enquiry
The best time to travel to Ladakh is ideally during summer and spring - May, June, July, and August. Starting from mid-October to March, the cold really begins to set in, and people go into hibernation to escape it. Also, Nubra Valley remains inaccessible during winters (upto March) due to heavy snowfall and accumulation.

Come summer, the valley begins to blossom, greeted by the first apricot flowers of the year! In April, a few accommodations start to function, but food junctions continue to rain shut in most places. From May to August is when the valley really blooms and welcomes travelers with beautiful, cloudy skies and a patchwork of floral colors making its face.

The months of September and early October, although a bit colder than summer months, are also viable for taking a road trip from Leh to Nubra Valley, especially if you wish to escape the mainstream tourist crowd. The autumn colors outshine everything else, and there’s the much-required serenity, travelers often chase. Another upside is that, since September - October is less touristy, you’re likely to land a much better deal at hotels and camps! 

Here you can check some best treks in Ladakh to experience the true adventure in Ladakh.

ATMs on Leh -Nubra Valley Highway

Send Enquiry

It is strongly recommended to carry a good wad of cash with you from Leh itself. There are only two working ATMs in Nubra Valley - one in Diskit and the other in Pratapgarh. While Diskit and Pratapgarh do have ATMs, it wise to keep these options open only for emergencies or as a last resort.

While it is natural to want to carry as little cash on hand as possible, the lack of sufficient ATMs in Nubra Valley demands that you carry enough cash. Make sure that all your cash is never in one single place. That way, if you misplace one of your bags, you will be left with enough money for safety and emergency.

Mechanics on Leh-Nubra Highway

Send Enquiry

It is widely recommended that you pick up on some skills before starting your bike trip in order to enjoy the journey comfortable. There are a few mechanics available through the ride, though.

Mobile Network Connectivity

Send Enquiry

Mobile network may seem a bit difficult to come by. There are a few things to keep in mind when traveling to Leh. Only postpaid connections function in Leh. No prepaid connections will work. Also, you will likely get decent network coverage in only a handful of places in Ladakh. The network seems to dwindle as you reach Khardung La Pass, and beyond the pass, it completely disappears.

The signal shows signs of revival only once you descend from Khardung La, and reach either Diskit or Hunder. BSNL also works well in Hunder, Sumur, and Turtuk. Furthermore, there’s no mobile network along the Nubra valley - Pangong Tso route, although you can find decent BSNL connectivity at Lukung, Pangong Tso. To sum it up, you will have a hard time finding decent mobile connectivity, so it’s recommended to inform your near and dear ones before crossing over from Leh to Nubra Valley. 

In case of emergencies, there are villages in Leh which have satellite phones. BSNL phones have the widest mobile coverage, and Airtel is a close second. With regards to internet connectivity, the speed is limited to 2G. 3G network is very hard to come by. Although you can always use the wifi connections in hotels, restaurants, and cafes. 

There are also a few cyber cafes. Bear in mind that electricity is a luxury here, but most villages and cyber cafes will have generators.

Safety Tips and Guidelines

Send Enquiry
1. Leh is at a very high altitude. It is imperative that you give yourself enough days to rest and acclimatize to the altitude, as well as the decreased oxygen content in the air. Take about two to four days to rest and explore in Leh before traveling to Nubra Valley. 
2. The mighty Khardung La Pass is at around 17,500 ft., making acclimatization of key importance. 
3. Also, make sure you are well hydrated, as water is the key to avoiding altitude sickness (which can be fatal if prolonged untreated). 
4. Make it a point to carry portable oxygen cylinders for emergencies. 
5. Carry Diamox (for Acute Mountain Sickness), again, in case of emergencies. 
6. Owing to the altitude, Ladakh is very cold throughout the year. Make sure you have enough layers to keep you warm. A down jacket or windproof jacket will be your savior. 
7. Visiting restricted places like Tso Moriri, Pangong Tso and Nubra Valley require a permit. Carry enough photocopies of the relevant documents to be in the clear.
8. Choose the Wari La route of traveling to Nubra Valley from Leh only if you’re experienced, confident, and not easily scared.

We went for Manali to srinagar Bike tour. It was the best bike trip of my entire life It all started with the person named Shubham from thrillophilia who helped me in selecting the best trip and processed with my booking, all thanks to him! Without him I wouldn’t have been able to experience the best trip of my life. On arrival there, we met our tour guide Tani and our Mechanic Shashi about whom I have read a lot at thrillophilia reviews. These 2 guys were so supportive during the entire tour that no matter what happened they were always there to look after us. They always made sure we are safe and we are following them and there is no overtaking taking place. Tani, the tour guide, one chilled out person he is! Make sure you get him as your tour guide and Shashi as the mechanic as these guys will always make sure that they are there for you no matter what. And in the end, it’s all the Main man behind everything, Jimmy Sir. Thanks a lot Sir for making me experience the best trip of my life! Without you and your team this wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks for helping us out in every way possible. The roads here are difficult terrain to ride on. You gotta be careful. You gotta carry your gum boots during water logging which is the most difficult to cross. But these guys made sure that we were all safe and had sound health till we reached home. Not even a single person was hurt. Our group was a mixture of all age groups, I’m fact we even got to meet 2 people From the Indian navy as well. One mad kickass experience! Unbelievable. Reaching the worlds highest Pass, Khardungla Top, was the highest achievement of my life till date which happened on this trip! And if at all you wish to go, don’t forget to ask Tani and Shashi as your tour guide and mechanic, and go only through Jimmy Sir as he has the best team! Thanks a lot to everyone out there for which I thought the best way would be to write at thrillophilia reviews.
We had a wonderful experience with Thrillophilia Out tour was Leh-Ladakh 6N7D, which includes Leh Sightseen, Nubra Valley Overnight Stay, Pangong Overnight Night. 1. First of all you should know that Thrillophilia doesn't have its own Travel Team. Thrillophilia actually linked up with several local Travel Agency. Once your Tour is booked Thrillophilia tagged one local Travel Agency for your Tour and that particular travel agency will take care of your entire tour. Our travel manager is Lobzang Tseldon. She is very helpful and you will not face any problem in your entire tour. 1. Hotel provided in Leh: Ladakh Heights. The hotel was very good,neat and clean.It is a new hotel so you don't found any pics in the internet. But lobzang will send you the pics of the Hotel. There is a canteen within the hotel where you will be having complimentary breakfast and dinner. Non Vegetarian please let Lobzang know that you want non-veg items as well.they generally prepare veg items only.but on request they will provide you omlette in breakfast and chicken/mutton in dinner. So if anyone wants to book Thrillophilia please ask Thrillophilia to tag you to the travel agency that offers non veg items too. The Hotel Ladakh Heights is a bit far from the main city but don't worry Lobzang will provide you car for visit to Leh market whenever required and she will not charge you for that. You will get a beautiful view from this hotel but if you want to stay near the main city you will not get any view from the hotel. 2. The stay at Nubra Valley was awesome. They have Royal Camp in Nubhra and it's is a nature-friendly camp. You will love it, I can guarantee you. 3. They stay at Pangong was okay. You can understand that at that altitude you will not get luxury.so the camp provided at Pangong was good for 1 night stay. Overall my experience with Thrillophilia was very good. We enjoyed a lot. Thanks a lot to Lobzang Tseldon for the wonderful arrangements of our tour.
"Trip was really awesome. I feel everyone should consider this trip at least once in their lifetime. My eyes were never tired of looking around at such beautiful and scenic views. I would like to extend my special thanks to Tour leader Mr. Jigmet Tandar. He is highly trained professional. The way he lead the tour made us have more fun. Thanks to the whole crew Jigmet, Stanzin, Wangyal, Kaushal, Tundoop. Made a lot of new friends. One suggestion to Thrillophilia team: Since this is not just any casual trip that anyone can go through please consider keeping a screening process for people who opt for it. This is one of the most extreme adventures where your body and mind will go through a lot of challenges, one can successfully complete this trip only if they are determined and well prepared."

An exhilarating life-changing experience. If you are able bodied, a biking lover, a landscape / scenery admirer and a crazy adventure seeker, this is a must try for life. Our group of bikers were fun-loving yet very responsible riders. We became friends on the very first day and all of us enjoyed every moment, giving mutual respect at every instance, having each other's backs at every dangerous turn. Even elderly couples in the group made amazing memories with all the young folks! The Ladakhi food, the heritage site visits, the campfire dancing, the photos, the market shopping, the music, the hikes, the snow, even the adorable mountain dogs, furry yaks and double-hump camels, every-bit was amazing. The road team was extraordinary, specially Tani (captain) and Shashi (bike repairman). They were very friendly, accommodating, knowledgeable and also helpful at every step. We had a truck carrying our luggage all along, running behind us all through the roads, making sure no one is left behind. Jigmet has a lot of local connections, so you will be well taken care of at camps and hotels (even Jain food, on request).

When we made the booking for 6-days trip to Ladakh via Thrillophilia, we had a lot of questions in our mind on how it's going to turn out, especially on whether it's a suitable honeymoon destination even for those who love a bit of adventure. That is primarily because the reviews of Ladakh were a bit scary. Almost all of the people who wrote reviews had a lot of things to warn you about- the extreme climate, sudden decrease in Oxygen levels, deserted/uninhabited places where it's difficult to get some help from anyone in case of any issues and so on. And there were some people who wrote bad reviews about Thrillophilia for some negative experiences they had to endure from the operators. But it was reassuring to see how Thrillophilia answered all the reviews, even the negative ones. They clarified how they assign tour operators based on customer reviews and in case of any negative experiences from the operators, there is not much Thrillophilia can help with apart from not assigning those operators anymore. As we were getting immediate response from Amit on all our queries on a timely basis, we decided to book the package. Cutting to the chase, we were contacted by the operator(Thupstan) the day before our arrival and he ensured that there was a taxi to pick us up on time. The tour guides and the driver of the backup vehicle he assigned for our group were so experienced that all we had to do was to keep riding until they ask us to stop. The halts were all well planned that we didn't have to worry about anything. And they were so approachable in case of any issues. And whenever we rode for a long time, they would come and inspect each bike and fixed any issues immediately. They were always willing to go the extra mile to make us comfortable. Let me quote an instance here - The driver of the backup vehicle had an issue with Blood Oxygen level when we reached Pangong. We had enough stock of Oxygen cylinders in the backup vehicle. But he didn't consider using it and hence took one of the bikes and rode to where he could find a pharmacy to get an Oxygen cylinder for himself. When one of us asked him on why he didn't use one of the cylinders that we had carried, he told us that the cylinders are just for our use and himself or any of the guides won't use that. Such was the concern they had for everyone in the group. In case anyone reading this still has a question regarding whether it's a suitable place for couples, the answer is YES. The accommodation they provide is suitable for couples as well. Even the tents are nice and safe. I could go on like this and I never thought this review is going to be this long when I started writing it. As others have mentioned in the reviews, it's such a beautiful destination and the experience is awesome. If you are thinking of taking a trip to Ladakh, go ahead and embark on this beautiful journey with Thrillophilia. I'm sure that you won't regret it.
