Where to halt? What time to start? How many days to ride? How many hours a day do we ride? How remote is the area?
Route from Manali to Leh is one of the most panoramic and spectacular ones in the world. Being one of the highest motorable roads they are no less dangerous as well as adventurous at the same time. Most of the bikers or even those traveling by four wheelers use a similar strategy while travelling to these regions which is- ride or drive all day, take breaks in high altitudes (mostly for pictures and selfies) halt before it gets dark. Almost every person falls sick by the time they are about to reach Leh (coz of altitudes and fatigue). Planning a bit and sticking on to the schedules will help you avoid such sickness. I would like to put this across to give you a brief idea about the places that are available (camps, homestays) on the way so that you plan your journey according to your preferences.
