You’ll be driving over the highest motorable pass in the world, Khardung La pass and also witness double-humped camels, the famous animals of the cold desert of Hunder.

The next day of Leh bike trip package entails the travel from Nubra valley to Pangong Lake alongside the Shyok River. You’ll also see the species of large ground squirrels called Marmots. Please refrain from feeding them as they are on the verge of extinction because of the travellers feeding those snacks. Habitual to the snacks, they divert from the natural instinct of eating grass and hence starve and die in extreme winters when there’s no one to feed them.


Visit Pangong Lake, the famous lake from the Bollywood movie 3 Idiots will change the definition of blue forever. It is your shiny blue reward for coming on this trip to Leh Ladakh. Placed in the middle of a light brown mountain range is Pangong, bluer than a sad song. An astounding sight to see for sure and a great place to take some rest.
