Leh Ladakh is one of the most adventurous and exciting destinations that travelers and explorers want to visit because of its beauty and mesmerizing landscape that is situated in Leh Ladakh. The journey starts from Delhi and continues to the heart of the Himalayas (Jammu – Srinagar – Kargil – Leh – Nubra Valley – Pangong – Jispa – Sarchu – Jispa – Manali) which is at a height of more than 18000 feet. Ladakh can be reached from Delhi and apart from that there are two different ways to reach Leh. The first route is from Srinagar and the second route is from Manali. If traveled by Bike then the Manali route is best preferred. Mid May to October is the best time to visit Leh Ladakh by road trip. The roads from Srinagar are open during this time which provides a beautiful journey for travelers. But May is the only time during which Rohtang pass in Manali to Leh route is open as the roads get slippery.
As soon as the roads open, bike trips begin. Leh Ladakh is reached by road only during the summer and autumn season. Travelers can reach Ladakh through the flight as well from Srinagar and Delhi. The road trip to Ladakh can be concluded with the package which is for mostly 10 nights and 11 days.
The journey to Ladakh takes us through beautiful monasteries following the narrow roads with steep curves. The snow-topped Himalayan range and Karakoram mountain ranges are a treat to the traveler’s eyes. The road trips to Ladakh challenge your physical and mental abilities as the roads are tough along with fluctuating climatic conditions which raises an adrenaline rush.But Ladakh is a lifetime experience as there is so much to explore.
