Today will be the 1st day when we will start riding on the famous Manali-Leh highway, every riders dream. Enroute we will be passing the mighty Rohtang La which on any given day will test your riding skills. We will be crossing Koksar and Tandi (Last petrol pump on Manali-Leh Highway). Do not forget to fill up your tanks. Finally we will unpack at Jispa a beautiful little hamlet in lap of himalayas.

Day 3:Jispa-Pang

Start early as today will be tough riding day will lots of water crossing, unpaved roads. Your riding skills will be put to sternest of tests today. Enroute we will cross Zing Zing Bar, Suraj Tal, Baralacha La. You will be astonished to see Sarchu a tent city in middle of nowhere. We will be passing through Gata Loops and finally reaching Pang by afternoon. Staying in Banjara tents in middle of nowhere will be a lifetime experience.

Day 4: Pang-Leh

Get up and ride to Leh today. By today nomads must be feeling the high of the Himalayas. Lazily riding through the winding roads our caravan will witness many wonders of Manali-Leh Highway today. We will be passing through Moore Plains (an amazing landscape with 40 Kms of straight road at height of 4500mts), Tanglang La (second highest pass). Enroute Leh we will take you to Thiksey Monastery and show famous 3 Idiots School. Reach Leh in the evening and rest of time is free to check out the local markets. Sleep with pride and give a pat on your back for completing the Manali-Leh Highway.

Day 5: Leh

No need to rush today as day is free to experience the culture of Ladakh by exploring the monasteries, Leh bazaar, talking to locals and eating some local cuisine. Roaming around the city and nearby will help the nomads to get acclimatize with the weather and high altitude. We will take you for a ride on Srinagar-Leh highway where you can seek blessing of Guru Nanak Dev at  Gurudwara Pathar Sahib , find the illusion of magnetic hill for yourself, witness the confluence of Indus and Zanskar and moving to Alchi monastery. Return to Leh city to witness sunset from Shanti Stupa and amazing views of Leh city.

Day 6: Leh-Diskit/Hunder

Finally the day has arrived to ride to the highest motor able road in the world. Yes the time has come to live the dream and nomads are at Khardung La (18380ft). Caravan moves ahead to what lies beyond and will reach nubra valley, another spectacle of nature. Desert, mountains, river all at same place and this is what makes nubra valley so special. Nomads can get face to face with Bactrian camels, friends of the earliest nomads. We will seek the blessing of Maitreya Buddha (100ft High) at Diskit Gompa the oldest & largest gompa in Nubra valley.

Day 7: Diskit/Hunder-Turtuk-Diskit/Hunder

Wake up and travel to Turtuk village. Turtuk is located on the banks of Shyok River. Turtuk was under Pakistan's control until 1971, after which India gained control of this strategic area.The place is culturally, linguistically and historically different from what you’ve seen till now in your Ladakh trip as it falls under the Gilgit-Baltistan region. Even the landscape is different with dramatic narrow valleys and steep mountains, unlike Central Ladakh and Nubra. Comparatively, situated at a lower altitude than Leh, you’ll see green pastures here that yield fresh produce like apricots and apples. Return to Diskit/Hunder by evening.

Day 8: Diskit/Hunder-Pangong Tso

Nomadic caravan will start its journey to Pangong Tso one of the most beautiful lakes in the world. Today we will ride on the most remote route of the trip. With various water crossings, riding on dry riverbeds, smooth tarmac and roads which are virtually non- existent it is going to be one epic riding day. All our tiredness will go away on the view of majestic Pangong Tso.  We will ride to unexplored part of Pangong Tso and will reach to Merak Village. This is going to be highlight of the trip as there will be no one else other than our group on this part of Pangong. As this is the remotest part of Pangong we will be having very basic facilities but that will be nothing in comparison to unparallel beauty of Pangong here. Camping beside the lake with only basic necessities will be a life time experience.

Day 9: Pangong Tso-Leh

Experiencing sun rise at Pangong Tso will be moment of awe for the nomads. After having our breakfast we will bid adieu to this majestic lake and start our journey back to Leh base camp.

Day 10: Leh-Sarchu
