This year will see the riders travel over 2,500 kilometers mapping diverse terrains ranging from plains of Delhi to snow clad valleys of Ladakh, all over the grueling 17 days course.
The weather would shift remarkably, from scorching hot to icy cold as riders will make their way to the picturesque regions of the Himalayas, which icludes Narkanda, Sarchu, Jispa and Leh, all the way to Khardung-La, one of the world’s highest motorable roads.
Over the past decade, scores of riders have had the pleasure of riding their motorcycles through the picturesque landscape of Ladakh to Leh and then beyond to Khardung La.
