Day 3 - Manali – Jispa (150 km) Wake up early this morning and then leave for a day full of adventure. So, you start the day with Rohtang Pass (3978 meters). This would really turn out to be a challenge as the roads you will bike through are really bad and the weather conditions are also uncertain.

Day 4 - Jispa - pang ( 150 km ) Today, you will be leaving for the next destination, Pang. When you leave from Jispa, you will enter the Greater Himalayan landscape. While you are on this route, you will see that the mountains are bigger on this part of the highway. Enjoy the view and later cross the Baralachha Pass (5000 meters). From there, head towards Sarchu which forms the border line between Kashmir and Himachal. From there, reach the Pang camp. Pang is a place where you will witness a mix of different natural formations which are seen through the roads and sand. Relax for the rest of day and keep it high on fluids.

Day 5 - Pang – Leh (ride 150 km) The day comes with a lot of challenges as you will have to bike through flatlands and get into the mountain-range-horizon. Cross the Tanglang-La Pass which is the second-highest motorable mountain pass in the world at the height of 5300 meters. After crossing this pass, you will have to bike through well-maintained roads all the way to Leh. En-route you will get to see the monasteries of Thiksey and Shey which are set on the top of a hill. Check-in at the hotel in the borders of Changspa. Spend evening chilling out at the place. Explore the culture and geography of Ladakh in the next few days

. Day 6 – Rest in Leh
Spend the whole day sightseeing at Leh. With a mixed population of Muslim and Buddhist, the place houses a large Masjid and a Tibetan Gompa. There are many eating joints at the central street which serve a wide variety of cuisines. This day, explore Leh on foot and visit the Old Fort which looks over the city. Spend the evening at any of the garden restaurants which are popular in this place

Day 7 - Leh- khardungla pass – nubra valley – Diskit The major attraction of a trip to Nubra Valley is going over the so called or hyped, highest motorable road,Khardung La Pass Being at lower altitude than Leh at an average altitude of 10000 Feet or 3048 Mtrs, Nubra Valley is an ideal place to fit into the acclimatization schedule of your Ladakh trip once you reach Leh. Climbing to very high altitude of Khardung La from Leh and then sleeping at low altitude of Nubra Valley DOES HELP tremendously in acclimatization. Thus, apart from the magnificent vistas on offer, Nubra Valley has a hidden advantage with respect to acclimatization as well which will eventually help your trip be more successful. No wonder, if you are missing on this part of Ladakh on your trip, you are almost missing out on the heart of the Ladakh trip.
