Yet another sport for the thrill seekers is mountain biking across Leh Ladakh. In a way, mountain biking is one of the only ways to explore the full potential of the tumultuous and unreachable crevices of Leh. A wonderful place to start can be the most elevated motorable road in the world, Khardung La. The height, the long winding road, the breeze, and the enthralling landscape make it more than an adventure, it is pure spiritual engagement.
The ride is physically demanding on these tracks and only the fit and healthy are advised to pursue them owing to the high elevation and low-pressure areas. Also, the roads are arduous and the turns are tricky so prepare for that in advance. But, also be prepared for breathtaking landscapes and captivating views of the mountains and valleys, and rivers and ravines as you wheel across the most charismatic views on earth.
You can bike across several routes dedicated favorably to cycling, including the 64 km route from Leh to Alchi, the 40 km long Leh towards Hemis route, as well as the enchanting 40 km ride across Khardung La with mesmerizing views of the Zanskar and Karakoram Range along the way. The best time, however, for the biking activity is between June to September as the roads are not covered in snow and are highly motorable as well as all passes remain open.
