The road to Ladakh may be long and winding, but it certainly requires no introduction. Undoubtedly India's favourite destination, the rugged and virginal beauty of Ladakh, the 'land of high passes', is almost nonpareil and the excitement only magnifies when you take a road trip to the region via Manali.
With a plethora of trekking opportunities, fantastic scenery, great accommodation options and an elaborate spiritual facet, both these destinations are great for travellers to explore. Here is a 10 day/9 night itinerary to help you make the best out of your Manali-Leh Bike Trip.

Getting Around In Manali And Ladakh
Both Ladakh and Manali are tourist magnets and transport therefore is not a problem. The best way to get around Manali is by hiring a taxi for around Rs. 2000 a day and if in case you are a biker, you can hire a motorbike (for your onward Ladakh Bike Trip) for around Rs. 1500 a day. Public buses, although cheap, are unfortunately not very reliable. This package takes care of all your bookings, so you don't have to worry about doing this on your own.
Ladakh has the same problem with buses and taxis therefore are reliable options, especially in Leh. However, in order to explore the entire region, you should ideally rent a car (a steady 4WD) for around Rs. 3500 a day or a bike for about Rs. 1500 a day. A car or a bike is imperative for your road trip from Manali to Leh.
