All Packed for Ladakh! Road Trip to Spiti and Leh

All packed and ready to go! This is Behzad on the Bullet. He’s Amigo #2 on this trip. Amigo #3, Avi on a KTM 640, is joining us at our 4 am departure. Behzad runs Voygr and rode up from Bangalore. He’s carrying lots of specialized camera equipment. We’ve spent the past few days figuring out the route, getting supplies and prepping the bikes. Big thanks to Sean at Big Bad Bikes for providing us with SW Motech Dry Bags. sanDRina is excited to be heading out to the mountains. Her panniers are full of food as we plan to camp as much as possible, far away from civilization 😀

Altitude Charts: Manali to Leh Highway with Khardung La and More

Here are some altitude charts of Ladakh in the Indian Himalayas drawn with data taken from my Garmin 60Cx GPS on my motorcycle trip through the “Abode in the Sky” in May/June 2013. The altitude signboards put up by the army are off by a few hundred feet but here it is accurate to within a few feet. Scroll down for the route map, a chart in meters and photos from the trip.
