DETAILED ITINERARY 

Day 1 – Acclimatization in Leh 
Arrival at Leh and moved to Guesthouse. This day is to rest and acclimatise to the high altitude. Once you are done with orientation and briefing, head out late in the afternoon to visit the local places (Leh Palace, Tsemo Monastery and Shanti Stupa) and give your bike a test ride. You can also do some shopping at Leh Market. Stay at Guesthouse in Leh

Day 2 – Leh to Nubra valley via Khardungla
Our long ride starts with conquering the mighty Khardung La (the World's Highest Motorable Road at a height of 18,380 ft). Riding further downhill, we enter the heart of Nubra valley. It is an amazing experience that you will remember for the rest of your life. As we enter Nubra Valley, the ride along the Shayok River and then to witnessing Hunder sand dunes is a treat for the eyes. We will first visit the oldest and largest monastery of the valley - Diskit monastery and then head out to explore the sand dunes. After rolling around on the sand dunes, we finally head to our campsite. Campsite in Hunder.

Day 3 – Nubra to Pangong Tso via Shayok
Today’s route is actually a shortcut road to reach the famous Pangong Tso via Shayok through rough and rocky terrain and in between water streams. The first glance of the alluring Pangong Lake and its blue waters is enough to leave a lasting impression on your mind. Our campsite for the night, which is our personal favourite, is by the lake itself at Lukung and 20 km away from the famous '3 idiots' shooting point. Stay at Camp in Lukung

Day 4 - Pangong Tso to Sakti via Changla
On our journey to Sakti today, we conquer the Changla La. It is a high mountain pass at an elevation of 17,590ft above the sea level, located in the Nubra valley. After crossing the pass, there's gruelling descent and we reach Sakti - a laid back village with lush green fields. Stay at a very lovely homestay in Sakti.

Day 5 - Sakti to Karzok (Tsomoriri)
This will be the most scenic ride of the entire trip although the entire stretch is off-road. From Spangmik, we will head towards Mann and Merak. We grab our lunch at a small village Chushul and reach one of the highest lakes in the world. Although much smaller than Pangong Tso, it looks more majestic. With less tourists visiting this place, it makes the places all the more beautiful. We reach campsite by later afternoon. Stay at Camp near the Lake

Day 6 - Karzok (Tsomoriri) to Leh via Tsokar
After exploring around Tsomoriri Lake in the morning, we depart to our next destination at Tso Kar which is fairly nearby. Tso Kar known for its size and depth is a fluctuating salt lake situated in the Rupshu Plateau and valley in the southern part of Ladakh. Today’s ride comprises good roads of Manali Leh Highway after we connect at Debring. Before reaching Leh, we will cross the third highest motorable road - Tanglang La. Stay at Guesthouse in Leh

Day 7 - Leh to Nimmoo(River Rafting) to Leh
The last leg of our journey leads to Srinagar highway. On our way, we will visit Magnetic Hill and Confluence point of Indus and Zanskar River. We wash off all the dust from our crazy journey by plunging into the waters of Zanskar River! We will go on a crazy rafting expedition which you will surely cherish. Return back Leh by evening and you can do some last minute shopping and pack your bags.

Day 8 - Transfer to Airport
Transfer to Airport in the morning. Thus your Ladakh Odyssey comes to an end with lots of new memories and experiences to take back
