India, Ladakh, Himalayan Traverse
Friday 18th August 2017 to Saturday 2nd September 2017 : 16 days
An adventurous and demanding tour over some of the world’s highest roads crossing the Himalayas to Leh in the Mountain Kingdom of Ladakh. Hotels and fully supported camps at altitude along with the chance to climb the highest motorable pass in the World. Fly London Heathrow/Delhi.
The route, starting in Manali and finishing in Leh, ascends and crosses several passes over 4500 metres with a final ascent of the Khardung La, reportedly the world’s highest motorable road at approx 5600 metres. Daily mileages are modest, but the gradients, often rough road surfaces and the altitude combine to make this a challenging and rewarding tour for fit adventure cyclists. The end of the tour includes an organised sightseeing tour of Delhi.
