Mountain Biking in Ladakh

The 490 km (306 mile) expedition from Manali to Leh (Ladakh) (or in reverse) is one of the ultimate adventures for any experienced mountain biker.

Ladakh, situated above the Indus River at 12,000ft and isolated deep within the Karakoram and Zangskar mountain ranges, provides the most spectacular view and myriad mountain scenery.

Crossing the Himalayas from south to north, the route traverses four of the world’s highest passes, including the TaglangLa at 5328-m (world's 2nd highest motor able pass).
