Manali - Leh
The classic Himalayan ride. 475km of mountains, glaciers
and 5,000m passes - all you'd expect from the second highest road in the world.

threshold of Tibet, China and Central Asia. Takes 8-10 days.
With optional side routes to Pangong
Tso, Nubra Valley, Tso Moriri and Tso Kar.
Spiti & Kinnaur

heads east to Tibet then loops west again along the old Hindustan-Tibet Highway.
Plenty of side valleys and rock hopping to keep you amused. Takes up to 4 weeks.

ride of the Indian Himalaya. Excellent tarmac surface passing through a stunning
landscape of pea-green glacial rivers, crumpled mountain sides the texture
of a rhino hide and the wonderful gompas of Lamayuru, Alchi, Likkir and Basgo.
Starting in Lhasa and finishing in
Kathmandu, two of the most exotic sounding cities in the Himalaya, this long
ride rarely drops below 4000m, making it the highest route in the book.
