Arrive in Manali
Arrive at Manali by 12 PM and get acclimatized for high altitudes ahead on the ride.
After checking you in into a guesthouse, the road captain will brief you on on the route and day-wise plan.
You also meet your co-riders.
This day is basically reserved for you to rest and to acclimatize to the high altitude ahead.
Riding practice in Manali
This morning, you will get the hang of riding a Royal Enfield on the varied terrain of the Himalayas and be ready for the ride of your life.
If you need any adjustments to be done, the mechanic can take care of it once we return to the guesthouse after riding through different types of terrain.
Overnight stay at the guesthouse.
Manali to Keylong
Wake up early in the morning to ride on the world's highest road the Manali-Leh highway.

Overnight stay is at a guesthouse in Keylong.
Keylong to Sarchu
Ride through bad roads, streams, freezing temperatures, small mountain lakes and breathtaking landscapes.
To reach Sarchu, you cross your second high altitude pass, Baralach La, at 16,500 feet.
After the descent from Baralach La pass, the landscape opens up and you will be in the plains of Sarchu.
Since Sarchu is snowbound for most of the year, there are no permanent structures here.
Stay overnight at Swiss tents.
Sarchu to Leh

Leh to Pangong Tso Lake
Ride through the third highest motor-able pass in the world, the Chang La pass at 17,586 feet.
After the descent from Chang La, the magical plains of Changthang open up.
Get the real treat of 135 km long Pangong Tso lake, where one can spend hours looking at the ever-changing colors.
You spend the night on the banks of the lake.
Pangong Tso Lake to Leh
Ride for a few kilometers along the Pangong lake where very few tourists visit.
Post that, you retrace our ride back to Leh.
Leh to Hunder via Khadulg la Pass
Take the road to the highest motorable pass in the world, Khardung La, at a dizzy height of 18,380 feet.

The real test of the ride, Zoji La pass at 11,575 feet, overlooks the beautiful mountains of Sonmarg on one side and the high altitude Ladakh region on the other.
The constant landslides at the pass mean that we ride through mud and broken roads.
