Day 02

Chandigarh to Manali (300 kms - 10 hours)

Day 04

Manali to Jispa (150 kms - 7 hours)

From the lush green Kullu Valley we travel along the winding road to reach the famous Rohtang pass at 3978m / 13050ft. This is the entry to Lahaul Valley. The landscape changes dramatically and is replaced by barren hillsides, blue skies and the route is dotted with green fields of barley, peas and potatoes. We continue riding along the Chandra River to Keylong which is the district headquarters of Lahaul & Spiti, and onward to Jispa. Overnight stay at the hotel.
Day 05

Jispa to Lato (260 kms - 12 hours)

Today we ride towards Sarchu and onward to Lato village for the night halt close to Rumtse. We come to Darcha, the last village that we encounter on this route before entering the Ladakh region. We are now in the arid zone and barren land is slowly turning to desert. We visit Deepak Taal and Suraj Taal, small lakes at high altitudes before starting our ascent to the high pass of Baralacha at 4892m / 16050ft. Sarchu is a plateau, practically a no man`s land at an altitude of 13954ft, located between the Baralacha La in the south and the Lachulung La in the north.We are to cross three more passes today. Nakee La (15574ft /4747m), Lachlung La (5059m / 16600ft) and Tanglang La (5325m /17469ft). Nakee La famous for its succession of 21 Gata Loops, sharp switchbacks on the road we descend down the Nakee La and come across Whisky Nullah and climb up to Lachulung La and reach the Pang plateau, this stretches on all sides seemingly endless offering us a 360 degrees view of arid mountains. We take a break in one of the many interesting Parachute converted tents for some tea and stretch. After ascending and descending 2 high passes, we encounter More plains; ride on flat land for 42km. The odyssey continues and we hit the winding road to cross Tanglang La at an impressive altitude of 5325m / 17469ft (2nd highest motorable road in the world). From here we are to enter finally into the famed Indus Valley.
Day 06

Lato to Nubra Valley via Khardung La (230 kms - 10 hours)

We start after an early breakfast and move onward towards Leh city, riding through the scenic valley. A few checkpost entry stops and we reach the busy Leh city.

A quick photo stop and we ride down to the cold desert where we enjoy the stars for the night.
Day 07

Nubra to Leh (150 kms - 5 hours)

We ride back the same way to Leh and enjoy the rest and free day.
Day 08

Leh to Sarchu (250 kms - 10 hours)

Altitude Sickness

What is altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness usually affects us at altitudes higher than 2500 m (8000 ft) above mean sea level. The first feel of reduced oxygen in the air is by getting breathless during activities that would be commonplace to us at home. It is quite similar to a hangover – it causes headache, nausea, and fatigue. This is very common: some people are only slightly affected, others feel awful.

What causes altitude sickness?

Altitude sickness happens because there is less oxygen in the air that you breathe at high altitudes.Β  It can happen to anyone. Even physically fit individuals are not protected Olympic athletes get altitude sickness too. Part of the mystery of acute mountain sickness is that it is difficult to predict who will be affected. There are many stories of fit and healthy people being badly limited by symptoms of acute mountain sickness, while their older companions have felt fine.

Altitude sickness prevention

Go up slowly, take it easy, and give your body time to get used to the altitude. The body has an amazing ability to acclimatize to altitude. Drink lots of water and eat light food.

Can I take drugs to prevent altitude sickness?

As with everything, many treatments and untested herbal remedies are claimed to prevent mountain sickness. These treatments can make AMS worse or have other dangerous side effects. Only one drug is currently known to prevent AMS and to be safe for this purpose: acetazolamide (diamox). It causes some minor side effects, such as tingling fingers and a funny taste in the mouth.
