Mountain Biking Tours in Ladakh

Mountain biking is one of the adventurous sports apart from long distance treks and the valleys of Ladakh, Leh being inaccessible to the general crowd provides the perfect site to carry out mountain biking. One needs to be an excellent cyclist for mountain biking as the turns and passes of the Himalayan valleys are too unpredictable. Generally there is not much traffic in this route and. the routes taken by heavy vehicles do not provide a comfortable biking trip. But the Himalayan ranges have a number of other biking routes which open up new landscapes of magnificent beauty to the bikers making the journey through this cold desert comfortable as well as enjoyable.
