“I don’t know where I am going but I am on my way”

Distance : ~ 250 kms

After exploring the entire Ladakh region, its time to head towards Manali. As Manali is around 460 Kms and can’t be reached in a day, taking halt at one of the camp in Sarchu was necessary. This route has many breathtaking views. At one point you will think, “Where i am going? Where are the people? Is there any civilization?”. So dear friends, enjoy this adventurous journey as i enjoyed mine 80 Kms Night Ride to Sarchu.

Places to visit on this route:

  • TanglangLa Pass, World’s 2nd highest motorable road
  • Conical rock structures on the banks of Sumkhel Lungpa river just before Paang
  • Gata Loops (21 Hair Pin Bends)

Where to Stay:

There are no concrete buildings and staying at one of the camps like Adventure Camp after Sarchu is advisable.

Riding Instructions:

  • Mandatory bike check as around 120 Kms of road is in bad state
  • Wear thermals as it would be very cold
  • Carry extra fuel (atleast 10 litres) because after Kuru and upto Tandi in Himanchal Pradesh, there is no petrol pump
  • Carry water and eating stuffs
  • There would be no mobile network so plan accordingly
  • There is a shortage of electricity in sarchu, so charge your batteries before you leave
