Sightseeing & Places to Visit on Leh Ladakh Bike Tour

Leh Ladakh, one of the most stunning, tranquil, and happy regions on earth, offers a plethora of tourist attractions. Leh is a collection of of captivating landscapes, natural views, and hospitality, with rivers like the Indus, and Shyok flowing here here and the Himalayas serving as its surroundings.

Nubra Valley

The route to Nubra Valley, which is located north of Leh town, crosses the 18,380-foot-high Khardungla Pass (also known as Khardongla). As a result, it is regarded as the highest motorable road in India and among the highest in the world for a perfect bike trip. Most of the Ladakh bike rides start from Nubra Valley.

The three primary communities in the Nubra Valley are Sumur, Hunder, and Diskit. Leh is almost 130 kilometers away from Diskit. The two principal rivers in the valley are Shyok and Nubra (or Siachen). Because Nubra Valley is lower altitude than Leh, it is relatively warmer there. Nubra is a must-visit destination for travelers because of its wide, flat valleys, the Hunder dunes, the double-humped camels, and the flora seen in many areas, such as desert oasis.

Pangong Tso

The high-altitude Pangong Lake, also known as Pangong Tso, is well-known for its stunning blue water, which appears to change color three or four times a day from dawn to dark as a result of golden mountains and sunlight. At its widest point, the lake measures 134 km in length and 5 km in width. The India-Sino Actual Line of Control crosses the lake. The Pangong Tso is around 60% covered by territory occupied by China. Pangong Lake has saltwater in it.

In the winter, the lake’s water entirely freezes. The lake is walkable due to a heavy layer of frost covering the waters. The journey to Pangong from Nubra Valley by bike is filled with a serene atmosphere and a thrilling journey.

For years, Pangong Lake was a must-see tourist site in Ladakh, but it wasn’t until the release of the Bollywood film 3 Idiots that Pangong gained popularity with travelers. Pangong was the location of 3 Idiot’s climax shoot. Following the movie’s release, there was an unexpected spike in the number of visitors to the lake.

Khardung La

Khardung la Pass rises 18,380 feet above mean sea level. The Nubra Road, which connects Leh to Khardung la Pass, is the highest in India and one of the highest in the world. Khardung la Pass draws thousands of visitors due to its unique feature of being extremely high and powerful.

The journey to Khardung La is a must for any rider who is organizing a vacation to Leh. One of the riskiest motorways in India, Khardung La Pass is situated at an excruciating height and roughly 40 kilometers from Leh. A bike ride via the “Pass of Lower Castle” is a must do in Leh Ladakh, as it presents a challenge to both drivers and motorcyclists alike. When visiting Ladakh by bike, this is unquestionably one of the greatest spots to go.

Magnetic Hill

The Magnetic Hill region is roughly 27 kilometers from Leh and is situated on the Leh-Srinagar national highway, halfway between Gurudwara Pathar Sahib and Sangam. Visitors swarm to this location to verify the veracity of the hypothesis that defies gravity pull.

The topography of the region and the surrounding slopes produce an optical illusion that makes Magnetic Hill, also known as Gravity Hill, appear to be a downhill road. Travelers, particularly those from the plains, are susceptible to this illusion and are shocked to see, if their cars are in neutral, that they are traveling upward on the road.

The car or any other object travels uphill (which is downward), but it only appears that way because of an optical illusion. Curious people have flocked here to witness the natural wonder as a result. Nowadays, Magnetic Hill Point is a popular tourist destination in Leh Ladakh.

Hemis Monastery

About 45 kilometers from Leh, in the Ladakh settlement of Hemis, sits the Drukpa lineage of Buddhism’s Hemis monastery (gompa). The monastery was originally constructed before the eleventh century, but Sengge Namgyal, the monarch of Ladakh, reconstructed it in 1672. Every year, a large number of tourists travel to Hemis. The Hemis Festival honors Lord Padmasambhava, who is revered for his role as the Buddha’s reincarnation in the dance performance at Hemis Monastery. When visiting Ladakh, tourists, both Indian and foreign, visit the Hemis Monastery. Some people arrange to see Hemis Gompa and Thiksey Monastery as part of their bike tour to Ladakh.

Thiksey Monastery

Perched atop a hill in Thiksey hamlet, Thiksey Monastery (also known as Thikse or Thiksay monastery) is associated with the Gelug school of Tibetan Buddhism. Leh town of Ladakh is located on the Leh-Manali National Highway, some 20 km east of Thiksey. Buddhist artwork such as thangka paintings, statues, stupas, and swords are kept in the monastery. There is a 50-foot-tall statue of Maitreya in the monastery. This gompa’s captivating construction on a hilltop and hill faces has made it a popular tourist destination in Leh Ladakh.

Every year annual ceremony includes the performance of sacred dances including the mask dance and the Cham dance. The trade fair, where locals from all over Ladakh gather to exchange goods and engage in social interaction, is another unique aspect of the monastery.

Shanti Stupa

One of the most popular new tourist attractions in Leh is the Shanti Stupa (Peace Temple), which is situated in Changspa (the upper part of Leh).

In 1991, Ladakhi and Japanese Buddhists constructed the stupa. At the base of Shanti Stupa are Buddha relics that the 14th Dalai Lama had enshrined. Built atop a hill, the stupa holds sacred significance for Buddhists.

Two years after work on the stupa began, in 1983, a road leading to it was constructed. Trekking enthusiasts can ascend the steep stairs to get there during their bike trip.
