This guide will help you plan your trip better. The trip starts with a visit to Magnetic Hill, which is located at an altitude of 4,200 m (14,000 ft).

Highlights of Leh Ladakh

  • Magnetic Hill
  • Sangam Of Indus and Zanskar River
  • Khardungla Pass
  • Tso Moriri Lake

1. Magnetic Hill

Magnetic Hill is a popular tourist attraction in Leh, Ladakh. The Magnetic Hill is a gravity hill located on the Leh-Kargil-Srinagar National Highway 1A, near Leh, Ladakh in India. The hill is so named because it resembles an enormous magnet attracting iron filings from all around it. 

2. Sangam Of Indus and Zanskar River

The Sangam of Indus and Zanskar River is a confluence of the Indus river and Zanskar river. It is a holy place for Hindus, who consider it their second home. This is also one of the most important pilgrimage sites for those who follow Buddhism.

The Sangam was first discovered by Alexander Cunningham in 1866, but its exact location was not established until 1880 when Sir Henry Miers found evidence to suggest that it lies close to Kargil on the border between Ladakh and Baltistan in Pakistan.

3. Khardungla Pass

Khardungla Pass is the loftiest motorable road in the world. Located in Leh, Ladakh, Jammu, and Kashmir, it’s also one of the most beautiful places you can visit while biking around this part of India.

It’s at an altitude of 5,359 meters (17,582 feet) and has been called a “ghost town” because there aren’t any permanent residents nearby—so if you want to camp out there overnight or overnight with friends or family members during your trip through Ladakh on a bike then this is an option for you!

4. Tso Moriri Lake

It is located at a height of 4600 m and is surrounded by snow-capped mountains. The lake is one of the most beautiful lakes in India, with its pinkish-colored water and stunning mountain views.

5. Pangong Tso Lake

Pangong Tso Lake is the largest lake in India and one of the most popular tourist destinations in all of Ladakh. It’s located on the Leh-Kargil road, about 50 kilometers from Skardu and 100 kilometers from Manali. If you are thinking about taking a bike trip around this area then make sure that your bike is suited for such long distances as it will be covered during this whole trip!

The lake is full of beautiful views with green hills surrounding it, allowing visitors to see them before they reach their destination at Pangong Tso Lake itself. 

6. Nubra Valley, Ladakh

Nubra Valley is a beautiful valley in the Ladakh region of Jammu and Kashmir, India. It is a part of the Leh-Ladakh region and is situated along the Shyok River. The name ‘Nubra’ means ‘blue’ in the Tibetan language while Nurbol means ‘valley’ or ‘lowland’ in Mongolian (Tibetan).

The valley was once inhabited by monks who used to live here during the monsoon season when the snow melts down to expose green grasslands with grassy meadows covered by wildflowers in the spring and summer months.

7. Tsomoriri Wetland Conservation Reserve

Tsomoriri Wetland Conservation Reserve is a high-altitude wetland in Ladakh, India. It is the home of the rare black-necked crane. The black-necked crane is a symbol of Ladakh and its national bird, as well as an endangered species.

Zanskar River is a tributary of the Indus River and originates in Siachen Glacier.

This river rafting trip includes one-day trekking to reach Nimo village where you will stay overnight at an eco-resort with hot springs, a pool, and a restaurant. First thing in the morning after breakfast you’ll set off on your rafting adventure by crossing the river via aluminum boats or kayaks depending on weather conditions (or even paddle boards). The total distance covered during this two-hour-long trip is 5 km long with an elevation change of about 250 meters above sea level!
