Leh Ladakh Map

If you are planning a road trip to the land of high passes, Ladakh, we have brought Ladakh maps for you to brief you about the various routes that your journey will involve. These maps will give you some insights into the roads that connect Ladakh with the other parts of the country and help you plan your hour to hour journey in a well-defined way.

A road trip to Ladakh is the most popular adventure in India right now and rightly so. The thrill of riding a motorbike on an altitude of up to 15,000 feet is something that can quench the wanderlust of even those with the worst case of it. However, the curves, the altitudes, and the weather conditions make the experience of driving or riding on these roads of Ladakh exhilarating. Hence, a clear cut plan with sound knowledge of Leh Ladakh map becomes indispensable.

There are two motorable routes to reach Ladakh from Delhi – Ladakh via Manali and Ladakh via Srinagar. The road distance between Manali and Leh is 472 km, and the sceneries are beautiful throughout the route. Rental bikes are easily available in Manali. The benefit of taking this route is that you get to cover some of the most beautiful landscapes of Himachal Pradesh at Rohtang Pass, Kaza, Keylong, and Baralachala.

The other route that connects Delhi to Ladakh is the one that goes through Srinagar. The altitude gain on this route is gradual, thus this route is preferred by many in order to avoid mountain sickness. Moreover, this route takes you through paradisiacal locations like Srinagar, Gulmarg, Drass, and Kargil. So, this route is recommended if you are willing to explore Kashmir on wheels. The total length of the route from Srinagar to Leh is 409 km.

Upon reaching Leh, you can set out to explore the gems of Ladakh like Nubra Valley, Pangong Tso, and Tso Moriri. These places are well connected with Leh through roadway except during the times of heavy snowfalls.

The iconic Pangong Lake sits at a distance of 222 km from the capital town Leh and can be reached in 6-7 hours, riding through Hemis and Tangtse. Another scenic lake, Tso Moriri lies at a distance of 220 km from Leh. One needs to take Keylong-Leh Road to reach Tso Moriri From Leh. The route from Leh to Nubra Valley passes through Khardung La, and the total distance is 160 km.

We went for Manali to srinagar Bike tour. It was the best bike trip of my entire life It all started with the person named Shubham from thrillophilia who helped me in selecting the best trip and processed with my booking, all thanks to him! Without him I wouldn’t have been able to experience the best trip of my life. On arrival there, we met our tour guide Tani and our Mechanic Shashi about whom I have read a lot at thrillophilia reviews. These 2 guys were so supportive during the entire tour that no matter what happened they were always there to look after us. They always made sure we are safe and we are following them and there is no overtaking taking place. Tani, the tour guide, one chilled out person he is! Make sure you get him as your tour guide and Shashi as the mechanic as these guys will always make sure that they are there for you no matter what. And in the end, it’s all the Main man behind everything, Jimmy Sir. Thanks a lot Sir for making me experience the best trip of my life! Without you and your team this wouldn’t have been possible. Thanks for helping us out in every way possible. The roads here are difficult terrain to ride on. You gotta be careful. You gotta carry your gum boots during water logging which is the most difficult to cross. But these guys made sure that we were all safe and had sound health till we reached home. Not even a single person was hurt. Our group was a mixture of all age groups, I’m fact we even got to meet 2 people From the Indian navy as well. One mad kickass experience! Unbelievable. Reaching the worlds highest Pass, Khardungla Top, was the highest achievement of my life till date which happened on this trip! And if at all you wish to go, don’t forget to ask Tani and Shashi as your tour guide and mechanic, and go only through Jimmy Sir as he has the best team! Thanks a lot to everyone out there for which I thought the best way would be to write at thrillophilia reviews.

From Recent Expedition -: Srinagar > Leh > Manali !! The feeling was awesome and words are not enough to express my experience of the expedition, but ever since I talked about it, it makes me feel that I’m still travelling, I’m still there. I had been a frequent traveller, but the emotions associated with this tour were different. We enjoyed, we had fun, we went emotional, we met some new friends, we felt proud, we captured every possible feelings and emotions we can during the entire journey.

Your Destination would be a dream until you come out and step ahead to it and experience. Leh-Manali Bike ride is one such vibe which will resonate for many years to come. Here the journey was more scintillating then achieving those milestones and Thrillophilia ensured we had great time by organising it perfectly to last mile would like to thank Tarun and Chitransh. Tani and Amit who were our Tour Leaders were just amazing with their hospitality to the care taken through out the ride. Ride at Khardungla Pass, Gata Loops, Zing Zing Bar, Barlachala were just amazing.

Such an amazing bike ride, challenging but with thrill till the end. Make sure that you are prepared to prevent the cold, the rough wind, the altitude sickness etc because even the symptoms of sickness will affect your trip. Khardung La Pass is quite a challenging one, also there are different shorter and longer passes throughout the journey. The service was also nice, not many complaints. The guides will know the place better because they are doing it for long. But still keep the track of the route before you start the trip. The guide was nice to us, keeping everything coordinated. The accommodation and food were also flawless to me.
We booked this Leh Ladakh complete tour from Delhi with the flights. And the whole trip was beautifully managed and it was a mesmerizing place being the Stupas, or rivers, hills or the passes. They were all enchanting and beautiful.
The Thrillophilia team has surpassed all of my expectations! I was initially apprehensive about the Parang La trek because of the altitude and the difficulty, but Thrillophilia made sure I had no issue at all! Everything was taken care of, and the guide was just brilliant. For any further treks, Thrillophilia is my go-to website and the one I’ll always recommend!
A great way to rent a bike and be secure about the condition and price for it. The bike of choice is also available and it is easy to book as well.
Excellent
The Thrillophilia sales and support teams are absolutely brilliant. When I heard the Parangla trek pitch for the first time from them, I was not sure if the trek would pan out in the exact same way, but surprisingly, it did. The sales team was very articulate with the trek prerequisites, and outlines and the operator had answers to all the questions I asked!

Leh Ladakh's location had everything that you dreamed about. It had ice (lots and lots of ice), even when I was sleeping battling the cold at night I was could see those ice sheet right in front of my eyes. but the most exciting part was that we were never complaining even under these extreme conditions. the food offered was very tasty. everything was perfectly planned by the thrillophilia team. Awesome experience !!
