Event Information

StoneheadBikes is committed to proffer especially designed Leh motorbike tours. If you are looking for an unprecedented experience through a bike tour to Leh Ladakh, give us a shout for Leh Ladakh packages on bike. We have hosted countless trips to Ladakh by bikes and boast upon a happy client base that appreciates us for a never before experience.
This motorbike journey will take you to the most panoramic landscapes you could imagine. Think of a river flowing beside the road, cold mountain air brushing your face, pin drop silence inasmuch that you can hear yourself breathing and sights of sky touching snow clad mountains. Well that is Ladakh for you- redefining beauty of nature in every sense of it.
This adventure motor ride will take you to some of the most astonishing spots you have never been to. One of them being the highest motorable pass in the world- Khardungla Pass (5606 m).
As our excursion is for two weeks, you will have ample time to soak in the charms of Leh and Ladakh. We would ride through the highest roads in the world, cross mountain passes like Chang La (5360 m), cross many Himalayan rivers and get to know the traditions and culture of the local people.
Visit ancient Buddhist monasteries and the Tibetan nomads with their caravan of Yaks and Pashmina goats on the legendary Royal Enfield Bikes.
Visit Drass and War museum at Kargil. This adventure motorcycle tour will take you to places you perhaps never know existed, experience nature and life like you have never done before. While returning, take a Shikara ride on the Dal Lake at Srinagar.
If you are a true adventure loving motorcycle enthusiast and have got that need for thrill in you, this tour is certain to provide you the fix you needed for this long.

Things To Carry
-Medicines: Carry Diamox if you aren’t allergic to sulfur drugs (helps reduce some of the symptoms of AMS) and medicines for headache, fever, stomach ache, cold and cough syrup. 
-Sunscreen lotion: UV rays at high altitude can be quite damaging to the skin, even during the harshest of winter, so don’t forget to carry a good quality sunscreen lotion eg. Lotus Herbal Sun Screen Lotion with rating of SPF30 or higher and apply it properly before going out in the sun. 
-UV sunglasses: As mentioned earlier, UV rays at high altitude can be quite damaging and this holds true for eyes as well. So having decent quality UV sunglasses (Fastrack ones are available for as little as Rs. 800) is quite essential, especially if you are traveling early in the season or during winter, when mountain passes have a lot of snow cover and sunlight reflecting from the snow can be even harsher! 
-Lip balm: Dry and cold weather of Ladakh will make your lips dry, which can get quite painful due to cracking and skin coming off, so make sure to carry a lip balm or Vaseline. 
-Mustard oil: Mustard oil can be used for moisturizing skin, putting it in your hair and for lubricating insides of nostrils, which can become quite dry and painful due to dry and cold winds of Ladakh. 
-Glucose: Carrying water mixed with Glucon C/D is a good idea while traveling at high altitude, as it provides instant energy on the move, when your appetite is likely to be reduced due to AMS and at the same time, doesn’t act as a diuretic, like most caffeinated energy drinks. Carry couple of small packs with you, which you can mix in water, at the beginning of the day. 
-Chocolates, biscuits and nuts: Carrying couple of chocolates, a pack of biscuits and few hundred grams of almonds, raisins and cashews is a good idea, as these provide instant energy and easy snack and don’t take up too much space. Those who love spicy food, make sure to carry pickle or sauce, since Ladakhi food is a bit bland. 
-Other personal essentials: Paper soap, toothbrush, toothpaste, comb and toilet paper. You can also carry your shaving kit and face wash if you have the space and need for these and any other toiletries. 
-Documents and IDs: It is essential to carry at least one government issued identity card and couple of photocopies of it, since it is needed while applying for inner line permit and at certain places, to register at the check post. You should also carry your medical insurance card (if you have one), and list of important contacts (useful in case your mobile phone stops working). 
-Chargers for all the gadgets, cameras and mobile 
-Spare camera batteries: Carry at least one spare set of batteries required by your camera, since in cold environment, batteries can die quickly. 
-Car charger or battery bank: If you are an avid smart phone user and planning to log your route on your favorite GPS App, then make sure you are carrying car charger or a power bank with at least 4000-5000mAH capacity to keep your mobile phone running throughout the day. 
-3 socket Belkin Surge Protector: While it is a little large in size, 3 socket Belkin Surge Protector will not only keep your gadgets protected from power surges, but will also allow you to charge multiple devices simultaneously and at the same time, provide the crucial cable length to safely place your gadgets in rooms with idiotic power socket locations (sadly enough, many hotels have this). 
-Torch: Not really needed if your mobile phone has one, but if in case it doesn’t, carry a small LED one. 
-Money: While our recommendation would be to carry enough cash you need, to avoid wasting time withdrawing cash, it may not be feasible for everyone. So please keep in mind that ATMs beyond Srinagar and Manali are only available in Kargil and Leh and they too are few with often long queues in front of them. 
Mobile phone connectivity: Only post-paid mobile phone connections from other states work in Ladakh and even from these, only BSNL has presence beyond Leh. So unless you wish to be dependent upon STD booths, carry a BSNL/MTNL post-paid connection. 
Medical/ First aid: A basic Medical kit would be provided by us. However any personal medication needs to be carried by the client himself.
Type of food: North Indian, Continental, South Indian food and non-spicy Ladakhi food.
Cloths to carry
The worst enemy for Ladakh Road trip is the cold. Carry different layers of warm clothing. You need to carry at least 2 set of thermals upper, 1 set of thermal lower, 8 pair of socks, extra woolen covering, 1 warm track pants, scarf for covering your neck and complete rain suit. 
Crew information: 3 (Road Captain, Mechanic & back up vehicle driver)
