About Ladakh

Ladakh, literally translating to “Land of high passes” is more of an emotion than just a place, that travellers and tourists connect to. Part of the state of Jammu and Kashmir, Ladakh brings out the adventurer in you. As you climb higher on this rustic land, you travel deeper into yourself. It wouldn’t be wrong to say that this is a transformational journey. There is a raw magnetic energy in its majestic snow-capped mountains, never-ending stretch of barren lands, mystic aura and rugged emptiness that awakens the spiritual side of you.

The area of Ladakh sees a beautiful amalgamation of two communities, the Shia Muslims and Buddhists. Various monasteries that were built hundreds of years before, still stand tall oozing charm. Thiksey Monastery, Deskit Monastery, Lomayuru Monastery are a few examples. They cast an enchanting spell on its audiences.

“Certainly, travel is more than the seeing of sights; it is a change that goes on, deep and permanent in the ideas of living.” – Miriam Beard rightly said so. Indeed, a bike ride to Ladakh is an experience of a lifetime. It is a journey that will leave you feeling fresh with a new perspective in life and you would come back with memories worth a lifetime.

Most of all this entire journey is about outdoing yourself and exploring different places within you as outside. Enjoy the serenity of the places and feel at one with nature.

The cold climate of the place and the warm hearts of its people will leave you wanting for more.

We from Wheelstreet offer you our best of wishes along with high end, well maintained bikes for this life changing journey. All the best!
