We make our way towards the east with the Zanskar region by taking the Fotu La pass. Leaving the nice paved road for rougher trails, we cross a mountainous chain via a small valley joining the Indus River. We follow the sacred river through little villages immersed in Tibetan-Buddhist culture. Finally, we reach the village of Temisgam.

Today, we ride back to Leh. During this short 90-kilometer stage, we admire and visit several remarkable monasteries. Visit the Likir monastery or the amazing Phyang Monastery and its 900 years-old museum.
Leh - Hunder
Climb an endlessly winding road to Khardung La. A 5,600-meters, it is the world’s highest drivable pass. To the south, stands a magical vista of the Zanskar Mountains while the soaring Karakorum range is to the north. Time stands still as we gaze upon this breathtaking landscape.
Hunder - Summor
We enjoy this lighter day of motorcycle tours in India to appreciate the beautiful natural wonders of Nubra Valley. If the weather is good then we will go to Turtuk, a forgotten village at the edge of the valley near the Chinese border. Later, we head towards Summor Valley where we will stop for the night.

After leaving behind the Indus River and 6,400-meter Kang Yatse mountain, we tackle the climb up to Tanglang La. At 5,328-meters, the road is the world’s second highest drivable pass. Along a sandy trail, our motorcycle tours India take us to Tso Kar Salt Lake set in a breathtaking lunar landscape.
Tso Kar lake - Tso Moriri lake
We travel deep into Rupshu Via a sandy, and sometimes stony trail into the most remote region of Ladakh. There we hit the famous turquoise lake, Tso Moriri. Enjoy an unguided visit of Korzok village, one of the few in Rupshu, and its small monastery or a walk along the lake.
Tso Moriri lake - Leh
