From Manali to Leh, riding on the roof of India!

Hop on one of our bikes from Manali to Leh, from Kashmir to Chhattisgarh, in the North of India, on one of the highest and most spectacular roads of the world! You will cross six passes, the lowest of which is the Rohtang pass (3950 m) and the highest is Khardungala (5560 m), looping up and down from one pass to another and from deep valleys to the high altitude plateau of Ladakh, “The roof of the world”. During the trip, you will experience extreme changes in climate and culture: the southern regions you will visit are full of green and are the womb of Hinduism, whereas the North, around the Himalayas, is arid and it’s where Tibetan
Buddhism has been practiced for centuries. Pack up and leave to India with Sharewood!
