One of the most beautiful and calm regions in the country, Leh-Ladakh is a lot more than raw nature.

The simplistic and elegant mountain lifestyle appeals to the soul and makes you see things from a different perspective.

Moreover, road conditions aren’t as difficult as rest of the year. A lot of bikers want to kickstart the new year with a trip to Ladakh on bike. Except for monsoon, a bike trip to Ladakh can be planned anytime. However, during winters, extreme weather conditions take a toll on your bike as well as your body.
Ladakh Motorcycle Tour Cost
While planning a Ladakh trip with bike, most of the expenses depend on the vehicle you choose for the journey. In addition to this, you’d obviously be spending money on food, accommodation and permits. Still, you can get an idea about average budget after considering these factors.
Usually, a bike trip to Ladakh costs somewhere between 30,000 – 40,000 INR. Most bikers prefer a 15-day long trip, which gives them sufficient time to make the journey, get acclimatized and explore the region. The cost of the bike trip is almost the same as a good Ladakh tour package.

In the capital city, Karol Bagh is considered to be the hub for rentals. You can easily rent a bike for INR 1,000 per day. You just need to submit your driving license, photo ID proof, security deposit and consent letter from guardian or parents, if you’re under 24 years old. The process is quick and convenient.
