  • Day 1
    Leh
    Leh Sightseeing

    A one day cycling trip revolving within the realms of the immediate location -‘LEH ’.
    We shall commence our trip at about 8:30 in the morning from the quaint villages of
    Ganges and Horze. These villages are situated in northernmost part of Leh region. We
    Will gradually cycle our w ay down through these villages and glide on to the main road, good enough for any vehicle. However, if you are feeling a little adventurous, there are small narrow roads and alleys that cut through the village. These chosen routes enhance the experience to a more detailed insight about the village and their w ay life.

    After Horze we swiftly enter into the village of Gangles. The village shares a similar landscape as the previous one. These parts are the more vegetated region of Leh due to rich source of glacial water received from Khardungla-La. As we cycle through the village we shall make a quick stop w here we will visit the Donkey Sanctuary. The sanctuary was initially started by a visiting tourist when she noticed a concerning
    numbers of ‘stray ’donkeys found in the region. Now these donkeys are rescued and looked after with care.

    We then move on towards Ti-Suru, a ruined Stupa built by king Takpa Bum dein the 15th century. This was the largest and also the highest Stupa in Ladakh of the time and now in ruins. We

    Then hop onto our bike and head down towards the village of Yourtung. Here we will pedal our way up towards the iconic Shanti Stupa. This Stupa was built by Japanese Buddhists in an effort to promote world peace. This Stupa is eminent not only for its religious sentiment but also for its location and the panoramic view of Leh from its deck.
    After this visit we will swiftly make our way and jam our breaks at the village of
    Sankar. Here we will visit the Sankar Gompa (monastery).
    It is affiliated with Spituk monastery, which is one of the prominent monasteries in Ladakh. The Sankar monastery is also the residence of Kushok Bakula Rinpoche, an important personality in Ladakh. We will then head to the Rock and Minerals museum, just near the monastery. The museum started by two gentlemen who shared the love for rock, minerals and fossils. With a little help from numerous geologist, they have managed to collect minerals, precious stones, semi-precious stones and even Fossils that are found in Ladakh. This museum could really enlighten a new perspective about the Ladakh.


    As the sun starts to beam overhead we quickly ascend our way towards Leh market, while making our way past Chubi and Karzu.

    The smooth downhill will soon be diverted to towards Changspa, w here we will halt for a much needed lunch at a Restaurant (Inclusive in the trip).

    After a hearty meal, we will soon commence our second leg of the Trip. H ere the option of taking the bike along or just continue walking is entirely up to you.

    We will head towards old town of Leh. The contrasting change in the landscape will be noticeably evident. The old tow n is the structural remnants of the Great Namgyal
    Dynasty. With the Leh palace towering above this place, you can glimpse the aged glory of Leh’s rich history. The narrow alleys com pounded by old ruined dwellings, that belonged to prominent Noblemen and women of the court, are now left abandoned. We will now cycle our w ay past the Leh market descending towards the village Skara
    where we will stop at Zorawar Fort. This fort was built by General Zorawar Singh. The fort depicts the military exploits by the Dogra dynasty in Ladakh.

    This concludes the trip with an auspicious visit to the village Gompa.

    After the trip, we will head you to your hotel and after a good rest we shall meet up again in the evening for a celebratory dinner.
