Ladakh is a cycling paradise. There is no question about it. The quiet roads, the friendly locals, the serene landscape and high altitude all combine together to provide you a safe, fun, at times challenging and at all times visually stimulating experience that few other locations in India and indeed in the world could hope to match.

I believe that Ladakh offers something for everyone. From the causal holiday cyclist to the hard core enthusiast who'd like to pit themselves against the mountains and see if they can come out on top. I've compiled this list below which summarizes the major cycling routes in the area.


I've rated them based on my order of preference and this article allows users to vote on the individual items (you do need to be logged in) based on their preference. Give it a few months and we'll see how your votes stack up against my initial list.
