Chirping whistle of marmots and blooming Violet Gentians are an adventure away

Cycle through the ancient trekking routes of Zanskar, made traversable by vehicle only recently. On this adventure, we'll cross 3 mountain passes while navigating from Manali to the Zanskar Valley via Lahaul. This is a challenging and exhilarating journey that will push our limits as we pedal up steep ascents and enjoy breezy descents, savouring changing and mesmerising views. As we traverse the rugged terrain, there's villages and monasteries along the way, and Buddhist stupas that call for a peaceful break. At the end of each day, we'll camp in the great outdoors and soak in the magic of blue skies fading into colour at the horizon. This trip will leave you with memories to cherish for a long time!

Please Note: This cycling tour is challenging and not recommended for beginners.
