About This Trip

A quest to conquer the unknown leads us to the land of unimaginable mystique waiting to unfold amidst the seeker. A journey enough to pump up your adrenaline and bring out the true adventurer in you with memories you can ever long for, this voyage to Leh provides it all. From crossing a number of high altitude passes to driving upon the highest motorable road on earth, from driving at an average altitude of 3500mts to exploring the spectacular PangongTso (lake), this journey offers it all and that to at the very best.
From Manali we start towards a 10 days road trip through the valleys and passes to reach and return from Leh. The journey too is amazing in its own colours, and being here brings a serenity within you as a glimpse of Buddhist culture, local culinary, snow-capped Himalayas and arid landscapes are always there to soothe you up.
