Packing List For Leh Ladakh Bike Tour For Riders

Ladakh is like nowhere you’ve visited before – rows upon rows of prayer flags, glinting lagoons, snow-capped peaks, red-cheeked kids, handsome yaks and scattered sunbeams that lend an air of magic to the barren background. It’s a secret oasis of pleasure.

Life is busy (sometimes a bit too busy) but Ladakh’s landscapes force one to take a step back and relish entire nights under star-laden skies or spend days cavorting in barren plateaux.

This blog is meant to provide some guidance to you before you set off on your road trip to Ladakh. If you want to refer to a list of practical things (thermals, woollen socks, torches etc) you must pack before setting off on an adventure holiday where you might have to battle cold weather and thrilling temperatures.

Don’t forget to pack travel SPF and an ultra-nourishing lip balm because Ladakh’s weather and searing sun can leave your skin and lips feeling dehydrated and burnt.
