Places To Visit During Leh-Ladakh Bike Trip

SONMARG

Sonmarg, literally meaning “meadow of gold”, is one place that makes it to the ‘places you should visit before you die’ list of every travel enthusiast you’ll come across. Being more than just an alley of blue snow and golden sunshine, Sonmarg has glacial mountains against the blissfully ethereal skies as its backdrop, making it nothing less than a hidden paradise. The place witnesses a very high number of tourists during the bracing season, and shockingly enough a handful during the harsh burying snowfall as well because nowhere else would you encounter the brisk wind that sends chills down your bones and perforates every layer of protection while causing much mirth. It lies at an altitude of 2800 m above sea level inclusive of the great Himalayan glaciers of Kashmir Valley namely Kolahoi Glacier and Machoi Glacier in its vicinity, and not to forget Sirbal Peak, Kolahoi Peak, Amarnath Peak and Machoi Peak being above 5,000 m. Sonmarg, apart from being a prominent hinge for trekking, mountaineering, and hiking to locales, is well-received by families as a vacation destination as it is by adventure fanatics.

What to eat?

For a traveler, food plays an important part in enjoying a trip and getting hold of the true essence of the place. Sonmarg leaves no stone unturned in this aspect as well with its wide variety of local flavors and cuisines.

Along with a cup of Kahwa, you can go for Yakhni, a traditional lamb based dish cooked in curd based gravy and deal with the cold and cravings at the same time.

Rogan Josh, another traditional lamb-based dish, when served with saffron rice, sets the tone for the entire day. For non-vegetarians, Sonmarg is no less than a food haven.

But if you are a vegetarian then also you don’t need to get disheartened, Dum Aalo will come to your rescue at any time of the day. 

Places to visit?

Thajiwas Glacier

Being situated near alpine forests, having a blanket of snow covering it in all seasons and the rays from the sun falling on its surface making a glitter like an effect, Thajiwas Glacier is a beauty to behold. You can trek all the way from Sonmarg to Thajiwas Glacier as the distance is only 3 km or you can hire a pony and enjoy the serenity of the place along the way. It’s one of the most famous tourist attractions and an important asset for the area. Did we mention the various waterfalls around the Glacier? Well, now you know where you should be heading in the next summer season.

Zoji-La Pass

If high altitude places offering a serene view of the world are your thing then you must stop by Zoji-La Pass while visiting Sonmarg. It boasts off an altitude of 3528 m above the sea level and acts as a bridge between the Kashmir Valley and Ladakh. Given its geographical importance, this pass is quite famous among travelers from all over the country but it’s equally dangerous if not traveling with an experienced driver. So make a note of that. 

Vishansar Lake

Ever wondered about seeing a lake surrounded by lush forests and mountains in its backdrop? Well, if yes then Vishansar lake should surely find a place on your list. Nature did it’s the finest work in and around this lake. Also, keep an eye for the fish population it holds. 

Baltal Valley

The ever so quaint Baltal Valley lies at the foothills of the Zojila pass and sets out the entry for the famous Amarnath trek being just 14km away from the Amarnath Cave. The blue mountains laced with a white sheet of snow surrounding the green limitless meadows is what makes Baltal a major tourist attraction, not to forget that it is actually an extension of the ‘meadow of gold’. Within proximity of 15 km from Sonmarg, Baltal Valley is easily accessible from Jammu by road via Srinagar.  

Nilagrad River

Nilagrad river is not just a tourist attraction but is a water body of importance for the locals. It is believed to have healing powers hence it attracts a lot of people every day. It supports a wide variety of flora and fauna around it as well.

KARGIL

Derived from  Khar, meaning castle, and rKil meaning "centre"”,  Kargil rightly literally translates to ä castle at the centre where people could live”. Kargil, apart from being a joint/shared capital of Ladakh, is also its second largest district after Leh. Although Kargil is famous for the Indo-Pak war that happened in 1999 over-time it has established an eminence of its own. It is a standing symbol of sacrifice and patriotism. This place is sure to entice you with its never-ending green valleys, mighty mountains, and breathtaking views. It wouldn’t be wrong to call it a dream place for everyone carrying wanderlust in their hearts. Even though there are enough landscapes and local sights that will keep you busy throughout the day, the only thing keeping you up at night would be the strident winters here. If there’s one place that is certain to leave you spell-bound, be it the finger-licking local food or the awe-worthy landscapes or the sweetest residents, it has to be Kargil.

Kargil at a glance

It’s not recommended to visit Kargil during the winter season because of the harsh weather conditions. Winter does come for Kargil.

How to reach?

If you prefer traveling on trains, then the nearest train station is Jammu which is accessible by all major train routes of the country.

Main Bazaar serves as one of the prominent attractions for food lovers visiting Kargil. With its wide variety of local and cross border flavors and cuisine, Kargil is truly a delight.

You can choose from Thukpa, Sugu and Meat Chawal to Kashmiri, Indian and continental cuisines.

Places to visit?

Mulbekh Monastery

With a 9 meter tall idol of Buddha and scenic views at its backdrop, Mulbekh Monastery enchants every visitor in a unique way. Although it is 36 km away from Kargil but considering its history and various theories around its origin, Mulbekh Monastery manages to garner enough footfall. If getting gripped by a sense of calm is your thing then Mulbekh Monastery is the place for you. 

Drass war memorial

Who isn’t in awe of the Indian army and the way they won the Kargil war of 1999 but it came at a cost. So in order to pay tribute to the soldiers who lost their lives in the Kargil War, a war memorial was set up in Drass village. With pink sandstone enhancing the structural beauty of the memorial and a gallery showcasing the relics from the war, Drass war memorial is a must for everyone who visits Kargil. 

Main Street

Kargil not being a major tourist attraction doesn’t offer much on some fronts but it tries to compensate in its own unique way. Same is the story with the Main street market, though it’s not swamped with brands and fancy outlets still, it offers enough to be considered by the tourists. You can buy dry fruits or local folk music and take a part of the culture with you. 

Lamayuru Monastery

Lamayuru Monastery is quite famous among seasoned travelers because of its architectural marvelousness and the way it instills a sense of peace in one’s mind. With typical Ladakhi mountains around it and the teachings of Budha floating in its air, Lamayuru Monastery wouldn’t disappoint you. Also, it allows cars to come close to the premises so less walking!

Suru Basin

Best places to visit are either the ones that attract a lot of people or a place that is underrated yet spell-bounding. Suru basin falls in the latter category. With the Suru river flowing through the valley and mighty Himalayan mountains looking over it, the Suru basin reflects serenity like no other. Still, it garners less footfall owing to the dirt track like roads that lead to it. But if you look for adventures and places that make it worth your while then you should surely visit the Suru valley.

LEH

Leh is the largest and most important town of the Union Territory of Ladakh and there are no two ways about it. They say if you want to be amazed and surprised at every turn of the road, you go to Leh; and let me tell you, they’re not wrong. Serving as the most famous location of this circuit, Leh doesn’t disappoint you with the colossal mountain ranges and unending views along the way; and you wouldn’t be surprised that people think Leh and Ladakh is one place. From monasteries to museums to Stupas to the highest passes, Leh serves as the perfect stop for family vacation and adventure rides. This beauty of a place is totally capable of enchanting you with the velvety-smooth roads and ever changing skies, so much so that one can’t help but sit in quiet and watch everything in front and above them change color and mood with every passing minute. Don’t wait up and bookmark this place on your travel list or even better get out of your bed, hop on to your bike, and take a trip.

So go ahead, maybe you are the one who can crack this code!

Khardung La Pass

Often referred to as the highest motorable road in the world by many, although debatable yet doesn't affect the marvelousness of the Khardung La pass.

Khardung La offers a panoramic view of the Karakoram range and offers the tourists an experience like no other.

Leh Palace

As soon as we hear the word palace we know a place is worth visiting for. Who can not be attracted to these royal structures and the history surrounding them? Leh Palace is not different. It was built by King Sengge Namgyal of the Namgyal dynasty in the 17th century and is currently run by the Archaeological Survey of India who strives to restore its lost grandeur from a 19th-century invasion. Still, it is a place of importance for locals as they gather around it to celebrate the festival of Galdam Namchot. If you are looking to get a panoramic view of the city then Leh Palace will serve as the right spot for you. 

Hall of Fame Museum

Indian army is known for its discipline, might and glorious history all over the world. Hall of Fame museum was built to honor the soldiers of the Indian army who lost their lives in the Indo-Pakistan war. It features various relics of the war and also houses a section for Siachen showcasing the life of soldiers posted on the Siachen Glacier. The museum is located 4 km away from the city and definitely deserves to be on your list to visit.

Gurdwara Pathar Sahib 

Gurdwara Pathar Sahib with its astonishing history, religious importance and stories of inception is placed unconventionally from the rest of the region. With Sikhism in its roots and Indian army managing its day to day functioning, Gurdwara Pathar Sahib has become a major tourist and religious attraction for people visiting Leh.

NUBRA VALLEY

They say that your ladakh trip is incomplete without one place, and no points for guessing that it's The Nubra Valley. Located at a distance of 100km from the city, this place has to offer the most exquisite valleys painted turquoise that goes as far as the eyes go. Originally called “Ldumra” meaning “Valley Of Flowers”, it wouldn’t be wrong to call Nubra the abode of gods and no wonder the road to Nubra passes through the world’s highest mountain pass. The place presents wondrous must-see spots. The highlights being the Hunder sand dunes, I mean who thought a sand dune could even exist at that height and the Diskit Monastery, as one would say, the perfect example of magnificent and prolific architecture. The valley is especially famous for its forest of Hippophae shrub, popularly known as Leh Berry. If one wanted to spot the rarest of bird species, they would head straight for the shrub. Nubra is definitely not one of the one-time visit places, if you go there once the place will compel you to return.

Founded by Changzem Tserab Zangpo in the 14th century, it holds the popular festival known as Dosmoche or the "Festival of the Scapegoat" within its province attended by the locals from the villages of Nubra in the month of February.

Panamik Village

Owing to its altitude and geographical importance, Panamik Village, although is a place to be mesmerized by but bars foreigners on its lands. It lies on the banks of the Nubra river and is close to the Siachen base camp. It houses a hot water spring and the signature pashmina goats and Bactrian camels. Due to its harsh weather conditions and altitude, it doesn't boast of a significant number of inhabitants. But if you are up for some adventure and road trip through the ever curvy mountain roads then the Panamik Village is the place for you.  

Yarab Tso

Yarab Tso, located near the Sumur village is often referred to as the hidden lake because of its location. One needs to trek upon a rough terrain for about twenty minutes in order to reach the Yarab Tso.
