Things To Know Before Manali To Leh Cycling Expedition 2020

Manali To Leh Cycling Expedition
28 Oct

Manali to Leh Cycling Expedition, the very name awakens an ignition in the heart of a true adventurer. For many cyclists, it is a dream to travel on the ever-changing landscapes covering snow-capped mountain peaks. It is heaven that takes you through deep verdant valleys, making you familiar with the culture of Manali and Ladakh.

One of the most dignified sites, Leh- Ladakh is the 'virus desert of India, where the snow-clad peaks, rugged barren desolate wasteland, high mountain passes, tiny hamlets, nomad shepherds travel give you lifetime memories.

Best Time To Go for Manali To Leh Cycling Expedition

Visiting Ladakh is different for every person. It truly depends on the perception, choice, and the mode of travel for the traveler. It is a very common belief that the best time to visit Leh Ladakh is in the summer months, which cannot be denied completely. In winters, Ladakh is covered under heavy snow and becomes inaccessible for several months. When you book a Manali to Leh Cycling Tour Package, you will see that Ladakh has a different color in every season. Experience a bit of solitude in the forbidden mysterious land of Ladakh from adventure seekers to photographers, it is a perfect vacation for everyone.

With the seasons always playing out between snow and harsh terrain, it is a whole lot of confusion for the best time to go for the Leh Ladakh cycling trip. If you are planning to visit Zoji La and Rohtang Pass, then you must owe it to winters.  Also, the area faces extreme snowfall with landslides, making it a tricky route for bikers. It leaves a little time windowpane through the year where you can gain access to the moonscapes of Ladakh. Especially on your way to Ladakh, you may come across extreme, dangerous roads, but the picturesque landscapes, along with the biking on the highest road of the world, make up for all the pain gone through.

Tips for Manali to Leh Ladakh Cycling Tour

The entire stretch of Manali to Leh Ladakh trip extends to 470 km. As we know, Ladakh is known as the ‘Land of High Passes’ as its relative isolation cycling greets you with the perfect presence of adventure. Here, here is the necessary information regarding a Leh Ladakh trip.

Avoid camping in prohibited zones.

While cycling, you will get along a few sites where camping is strictly prohibited, so make sure you don’t cross the safe zones. Even when camping by the shores of lakes, make sure that you have the required permission to do so.

Camp near streams

Ensuring your safety when you rest after a tiring day full of adventure is a need for a happy trip on Leh. Always know where to camp according to the proximity to the streams so that you have sources of water. At the same time, look for the higher spot from the stream level.

Carry all essential equipment

Rainfall in Leh is a common scenario, so it is a smart step to set it up in advance. Carry all the essential clothing and equipment to keep your tents safe. What if you find yourself stuck somewhere for the whole day? Then, it is always better to opt for a homestay or remain safe in tents with food and water.

Acclimatization is the key to happy camping.

If you have never been to high altitudes, let us tell you that acute mountain sickness is common on high altitudes. Setting up a camp and dismantling is not an easy task as it requires physical power.  Acclimatize yourself properly before you undertake trekking. The best way to acclimatize is to stay hydrated throughout the trek.

Miscellaneous things to carry for your trekking trip

  • Binoculars
  • Hiking pole
  • Layered clothing for snow treks and Trek Pants for all 
  • Sunscreen, Sunblocks, and Lip Balms
  • Basic first aid kit- acute mountain sickness, Motion Sickness, Antacids, Pain killers, Fever, bandages
  • Sunglasses, camera, powerbank
  • Mosquito repellent
  • Multi-purpose knife
  • Torch
  • Cutlery- spoons, small lunch box, fork

Here are all the essentials to keep yourself safe in the mountains. Organize your checklist using these suggestions, what items to carry while trekking, we've dropped out, and how you prepared your pack for a trek!

Way Forward

The mystical region of Leh-Ladakh emphasizes jaw-dropping panoramas as far as your eye can go with them. Needless to say, a cycling trip to the challenging mountain escape of Leh-Ladakh tops the bucket list of every enthusiastic biker.

Snow Camping was perfectly organized by HAT. We were a group of 15 people from Kerala and came for some small hike with Snow camping. We had an awesome experience in the woods , location can't be any better and food was also freshly prepared for us. Tea was served as we wanted which is really good for us in cold. Thanks team Himalayan Adventure Trips

We did roadtrip to Chandratal Lake. It was a great experience as it was my first roadtrip and Himalayan adventure organized it so well. We enjoyed stunning and spectacular views of Spiti area and the night stay at Chandratal lake was so soothing experience. Thanks a ton HAT team for this superb lifetime memory! Looking forward to enjoy many other trips with HAT.

Our trip to Prashar lake exceeded our expectations on every level. From our very first interaction with Himalayan Adventure Trips, this travel agency demonstrated care and concern for understanding the needs of our group, and the experiences

Even though not as popular as other trekking agencies, these guys were very professional and conducted one of the most difficult treks in an Excellent way. The trek leaders, support staff and the cooking staff were excellent. They really run the trek on their shoulders. I remember the cooking head was saying to me that he has done pin Parvati nearly 50 times and there hasn't been any incident whatsoever, I realized it why. The technical staffs really did amazing job to get everyone cross the difficult and risky boulders and tricky sections. Appreciate the whole team. The management team though can improve on communication and advertising more.

Yunam Peak is open for those who look for a High Altitude challenge. Its duration is short compared to the others of comparable height. One is on foot only for 2 or 3 days. One part of the walk is entirely loose stones/boulders, the other part is just snow. Himalayan Adventure trips provide comfortable accommodation before and after the trek at their campsite in Naggar. Their trek guide was competent and the other members were proficient in the work they had to handle.

It was an amazing experience indeed and certainly my best decision… was the best trek ever! The scene are so beautiful and the entire place is so clean that you will feel as if you are in a foreign land. Amazing trip. The whole experience of trekking was really amazing. Moreover with the appointed guides and crew members, the fun went further ahead. Entire Hampta Pass itinerary provided by Himalayan adventure trips was planned in a very convincing way and was very fulfilling in every aspect. Totally satisfied with Team Himalayan adventure trips. Thanks a lot Himalayan adventure trips.. for making this trip a memorable one for one and all. Awesome job by all the tour operators and service providers.

It was my first trek and I choose Sar Pass trek as suggested by Himalayan Adventure trips representative. They also helped me with my packing and preparation for the trek which was really useful. I was able to complete trek successfully with a little difficulty since it was my first trek, but everything was very organized with good food.

It was a nice short & sweet trek...one way trek was around 4-5hrs depending on your speed..it’s an easy trek, if anyone doing a trek for the first time, I would highly suggest to start doing 30min walk /run daily starting 3weeks before the planned date. In the end don’t forget to enjoy every step:D Come back with some great experiences to share !! Cheerio :)

I climbed Mt Deo Tibba with Himalayan Adventure Trips, it was a successful attempt and things were planned well. The staff is nice and we had some fun too. I really liked the local dishes they prepared and their willingness to help me for anything. I will definitely go for next expedition with them.

This trek is the place and the trek to take , if it all you have any doubts on your physical capabilities or want to challenge your body and mind together! What a trek it was! The hardest route, the most difficult terrain and the longest hike I have ever done. Still, this is my best! Our family did it together and it is our best one. We had the longest route - 45km and it took almost 5 days to complete. It was a night trek and we scaled during the midnight amidst moonlight and snowing. What a thrill

I would say it was a lifetime experience to me and my family members.... it was snow fall when we went there the 7 hours of walk was totally worth it...

Such magnetic place which would attract you from miles away. It's attraction would not be light even if you reach up to it and walk on it. Just a nature's marvel which makes everything else look smaller and worthless in front of it.

A trek treat on Himalayas. So much of knowledge about the other side of mountain life seems to have made a tad richer in experience and of course the humility and good lessons to lean on to that only mountains can teach.
