Zanskar & Ladakh - the Roof of the World

A Classic Bike Adventure exclusive:
Wild Zanskar and the Best of Ladakh
This tour is a mystical "river journey" from Leh to the wild Zanskar Valley, hidden in the remotest reaches of the Himalayas.

From Leh, we start by following the holy Indus downstream to the west. After crossing the Fotu La pass (4,094 m), our route takes us through barren, rocky valleys and passes to the mouth of the Suru river near Kargil, the gateway to Zanskar Valley. From Kargil, we'll head south into Baltistan's Suru Valley. Our route takes us up the wild, rugged valley on a steady climb to Penzi La pass (4,400 m) the only road into Zanskar. We'll be passing enormous glaciers on our way into the valley. We'll slowly work our way up the rough tracks to our destination in Padum - literally the end of the road.

After exploring Zanskar, enough time will remain to get to know the highlights of the Indus Valley. We'll be visiting the Likkir, Tikkse and Hemis monasteries and spending the night in Chilling on the lower Zanskar River, as well as in the Alchi oasis. And last but not least, the ultimate high point - one that can also be measured in terms of altitude - the Kardungh La, the highest pass in the world, at 5,605 meters!
