Information About Manali-Leh Cycling Expedtion:-
Our Manali – Leh cycling tour is one of our most difficult mountain bike tours in the world. This extreme cycling tour takes you to the very heart of the Himalayas where you will discover some of the finest cycling the world has to offer.
The Manali-Leh cycling tour is one of the most scenic, challenging and popular mountain biking routes. You cover 550 km over 12 days going past many high passes – Rohtang (3900 m), Baralacha La (4800 m), NakeeLa (4900 m), Lachung La (5050 m), Tanglang La (5260 m and the world’s second highest motorable road). The road is a mix of tarmac and unmetalled roads. Once you cross into Lahaul valley from Manali, you go past picturesque villages. Hoever, after Darcha, it’s all wild country with no permanent villages till you cross Tanglang La closer to Leh.
On the Manali-Leh cycling route the only settlements you will come across are doksas or make-shift bed-and-breakfasts that have come up for the season. From alpine forests and meadows in Manali through deep valleys in Lahaul, and vast plains at Sarchu, you enter Ladakh, a land that offers every hue of orange, red, brown and ochre. Along the way your challenges include searing hot days, freezing nights and most importantly, high altitude.
Day 01: 29th July: Arrive in Manali.
Spend the morning at your pace soaking in the surroundings . Manali nestles at the head of a lush green valley, on the banks of the Beas river. Both the Dhauladhar and the Pir Panjal Himalayan ranges meet above Manali. Towering two miles above us to the North of the town we can see many 6000 metre snowy peaks beneath which we are going to be cycling soon.
Day 02: Manali – Marhi (3312 m) (40 Kms)
Today is our first climb as we begin to “warm up” for the tough ride ahead. Cycling out of Manali through an evergreen area of pine and deodar trees we tackle the first set of many hairpin bends and switchbacks on the way to the Rohtang pass. There are also many apple orchards and small hamlets along the route. As we ascend higher we see many waterfalls tumble down surrounding mountain sides.
Day 03: Marhi – Sissu (3120 m) (45 Kms)
We start the day by continuing along the 12km ascent to Rohtang pass (3900 m) (The pass of Souls). In the old days of the Silk route when caravans used to travel; Rohtang used to be one of the most feared of pass because of its freak thunder storms and high winds many people used to die enroute hence the nickname pass of Souls. On a clear day, there are some lovely scenic views on the horizon of snow covered peaks and glaciers. As we cross the pass, we leave the lush green scenery behind and continue our descent to Gramphu. From here we will travel along some unmarked stretches of flat road as we cross the raging torrent of the river Chandra at Khoksar. We continue with a short and easy ride to Sissu. From our campsite after some chai and snacks in the evening you can choose to walk to the Sissu falls which is a spectacular place.
Day 04: Sissu – Jispa (3350 m) (53 Kms)
We set off with a short ride to Gondla and then onwards to Keylong passing through mountain streams that flow over the road. Today is a relatively easy day of cycling. You will notice that the terrain is becoming much more arid as we negotiate the rutty, dusty and rocky road. Our route undulates into the hamlet of Jispa where we end the day on the bikes.
Day 05: Jispa – Zing Zing Bar (4020 m) (38 Kms)
As we leave Jispa we come out of a gorge and ride downhill. We first cross the police check post at Darcha a small settlement set at the intersection of the Barai Nulla and the Bhaga river. From here our ascent to Patseo begins. As we cross Patseo we begin to get a sense of the remoteness of the area, with just a few sheep dotted here and there. The landscape becomes more wind swept and arid as we continue riding we have entered the land of the Lamas. On the horizon you can see the bleak, awesome spectacle of the higher Himalayan ranges. From Patseo we continue our climb for a further 10km to Zing Zing Bar which is also the base of Baralacha la pass.
Day 06: Padseo – Sarchu (4255 m) (54 Kms)
It is a long and hard climb to the Baralacha La Pass (4810 m) today. However the tough riding is rich in its rewards as we travel through wild scenic country with high mountains on either side this is the barren trans Himalayan region where you will also feel the pressure on your lungs as you pedal on. The pass itself is arid with no vegetation, the mountainside resembles a quarry, covered with slate, loose rocks and gravel. Descending into the gorge on the other side also known as the Yunan valley we reach Bharatpur where we get a tea break at one of the many make shift hotels that come up in seasons. Continuing on we cross mountain rivers en route to our destination Sarchu. Tonight you can relish the magnificent surroundings from our campsite. On a clear evening the sunsets at Sarchu are magnificent.
Day 07: Sarchu – Wishkey Nulla (4750 m) (54 Kms)
The day starts with some easy cycling but we soon head into the twenty-one zigzag Gata Loops up the canyon wall. This is only the first stage once, the Ghata loops end we find ourself in a zone which is super arid and windswept every pedal from here is is one hell of an effort. The climb to the pass Nakeela is super long but once we reach the summit of the Nakeela Pass (4900 m) its an easy downhill to Whisky Nullah where hot chai and pakora await. Today is probably one of the hardest days of the ride but the day is also richly rewarded
with some beautiful trans Himalayan scenery. Look out for Bharals (Blue Sheep) lazing just before the Nakeela Pass.
Day 08: Wishkey Nulla – Tso Kar Lake (4550 m) (75 Kms)
We begin today ascending the second highest pass on the Manali-Leh highway up the Lachalang La (5050 m) . The road here is likely to be the roughest of the trip with a distinct lack of tarmac, it’s very gravelly and there are many loose stones. We have a long descent to Pang down a steep sided gorge followed by an 8km switchback climb before reaching the flat top of the Moray Plains which is also the entry into the Chang thang reagion. This barren area is known for its extreme temperatures in the morning and evening, fast winds and sandstorms. The only sign of life is the hardy Nomadic Changpas who can be seen tending their yaks in this most desolate of places. We continue across the plane to Tso Kar salt lake. Our camp is near the shores of the lake.
Day 09: Tso Kar Lake – Lato (3600 m) (68 Kms)
Today is a challenge indeed, as we head up the world’s second highest motorable pass, the Tanglang La at 5,260m. A tough day but truly satisfying when you reach the top. We set off again down the exhilarating 1,200m descent of switchbacks to the village of Rumtse. We beginn to see tiny villages as we start entering into more populated and fertile terrain. The air feels warmer as we cycle on to the village of Lato.
Day 10: Lato – Leh ( 3400 m) ( 71 Kms)
Today we continue downhill and head to Upshi, the scenery changes dramatically; as we enter the fertile Indus valley the area is irrigated by the river and is dotted with pretty villages and spectacular stupas. The awesome multi-hued mountains around us add to the beauty and richness of our environment. Crossing the Indus River the road improves as we head towards Leh. This is an easy stretch, we pass the Shey Palace, Thiksey Monastery and the Chortens Gardens en route Leh.
Day 11: In Leh.
Taking a rest from the bikes today we have the chance to wander around the twisting narrow streets of Leh. A popular tourist destination, there are many cafes and sites of historical interest to explore such as Leh Palace or the Sakar Gompa monastery and the Shanti Stupa. Leh used to be a popular trading site during the early days of the Silk route with caravans coming all the way from as far as Turkey.
