It is approximately 105 km away from Leh and is filled with thrill and adventure at every turn. The untarnished water bodies, snow-capped mountains, and natural sceneries of the place allure millions of tourists and trekkers every year. 

The Zanskar valley tour package covers all these well-known sites. Riding through these challenging roads and stunning landscapes and witnessing the absolute beauty of the tranquil Leh is a matter of sheer excitement to all motorcycle enthusiasts. Delve into the itinerary of the Zanskar road trip and know all about the titillation of the 11-day trek.

Take proper rest during the night as the thrill of the Leh Zanskar trek is about to begin. 

 

Waking up to a beautiful morning and scrumptious breakfast in the mountains, we are ready to begin the first adventurous ride of the Leh Zanskar trek. 

Ride through the breezy roads leading to the ‘Sham Valley’, an adorable dale nestled around the Srinagar – Leh highway. You will start by paying homage to the martyrs of the Indo-Pak War at the Hall of Fame and head to relish the delicious langar at Gurudwara Pathar Sahib. Drive through the edgy roads to reach the Magnetic hills, which is a mind-boggling place creating illusions in every visitor’s mind. Be ready to witness this unique phenomenon that defies gravity.  Moving further, feast your eyes on the incredible confluence of Zanskar and Indus Rivers at the Indus Sangam Viewpoint and capture the perfect shots. Spend the night under the starlit sky and pure bliss at Leh.

Gear up as we are moving to an ultimate thrill on the third day of the Zanskar road trip. 

Khardung-La, one of the highest motorable passes in the world, has the most enthralling roads and surprising turns. Riding through the extraordinary pass will greet you with the ever changing views of the barren land and panoramic scenes. Stop at the aesthetic location and feel yourself at absolute calm and apogee. The trek further takes you to the Diskit Monastery,  having the serene Buddha statue and exquisite double-humped Bactrian Camel Ride exclusively found in this region. Spend the evening at the campsite in Nubra Valley by its scenic vistas and ravishing orchards. 

Day 4 of the Zanskar trip will take you to Turtuk, the last outpost in India, also known as one of the gateways to the Siachen Glacier. The unique landscapes, culture, language, and history of the exclusive site make it different from other places at Ladak. It falls under the Gilgit-Baltistan region, which is situated at a lower altitude than Leh, depicting scenes of green pastures yielding fresh produce like apricots and apples. Getting back from the scenes of the town, you will spend the evening at the Nubra valley relishing its unrealistic sites.

 

It’s time to bike to the much-awaited Pangong Lake, one of the most prodigious destinations of the Leh and the Indo-China border. The changing colours and the sheer charm of the Pangong portray an unmissable romantic site that catches everyone’s attention. Being one of the highest altitude saline water lakes, the Pangong Lake will treat your eyes with the picturesque views of the Shyok river on one side and the mountains on another side. Spending a night at the gorgeous site is surely the perfect way to relax and enjoy its serenity. 

 

The sixth day of the Zanskar trip will take you back from Pangong Tso to Leh. So, get a hearty breakfast and mark your way back to Leh.

The Changla Baba Temple, on top, is yet another serene place that is believed to be the guardian of the people visiting Chang La. Complete your day with a hearty dinner at Leh and spend the night under its crystal clear skies. 

The next location of the Zanskar bike trip is the Lingshed village, a remarkable place sheltering several Buddhist monasteries. Visit the hall of fame (war memorabilia) and come across Pathar sahib gurudwara, halt for prayer, followed by the magnetic hill. Ride back to the deserted area of Taru Thang and enjoy the majestic Ladakh Konkha view leading to National Highway 1.
