Our Signature motorbike tour is specially designed for people who want to see the beauty of Leh – Ladakh at a relaxed pace over a period of two (2) weeks.

Like all our other tours, we start and end in Delhi on Day one (1). For people who are coming from outside Delhi/ India, you are required to be in Delhi, one (1) day prior to the departure of your tour.

You may choose to go on either one of our fixed departure dates starting 1st week June every summer if you are an individual. However, if you are group of eight (8) or more friends then we can do a custom tailor made tour for you as well, the dates for which can be at your convenience.

the-dream-ride-15This is the most well researched itinerary that we have chosen through our several trips to Ladakh over the last 6+ years, but we don’t mind changing or tweaking it a bit at your convenience if needed.

To save 2 full days, you have the option of flying out (at your own cost) of Srinagar to either Delhi or your home city. Alternatively, you may take a train out of Jammu (at your own cost) to your home city as well.

We can help you in arranging a reliable logistics services company to pick up your motorbike from anywhere in India and delivering it to your doorstep safely.

the-dream-ride-03If you want a motorbike on rent from Delhi then please inform us separately, we will help you in arranging a good quality reliable motorbike from one of our trusted vendors.

If you have your own motorbike then it’s recommended to courier it to Delhi using the logistics services company, they take about 8 - 10 days to ship to Delhi from almost anywhere in India.

You can either ride single or have your partner as pillion. She also has a choice to hop on/ off between your motorbike and the SUV for added comfort.
We mostly run mixed tours – SUV’s and motorbikes go together.

Today, ride up a bumpy road to the mighty Tanglang La (17582 ft) - the 2nd highest motorable pass in the world. Often called by many as the "highway to hell" owing to its super smooth roadway and thus, riding on this road can be tricky demanding high alertness, cautioning the bikers at every turn.

En route, pause for paying visits to the beautiful and peaceful monastaries around Leh - Hemis, Shey, Thiksey etc. Also, take some breaks in between to pose for snaps with the cascading waterfalls at the backdrop.

The entire population in Ladakh is Buddhist while the entire population in Kargil is Islamic, and thus, the journey from Ladakh to Kargil is symbolic in its own way, signifying a transformation, as you traverse from one world to another, regionally as well as “religionally.”

Visit the Dal Lake for a shikara ride, the Mughal Gardens, theShankracharya Temple and other tourist attractions on reaching Srinagar.
