Leh is the land of medieval Gompa perched on roaring heights, gentle people, high altitude-deserts, quashing rivers, high peaks and passes. It is one of the most sparsely populated regions in the country. The people are a mix of the Tibetan, Balti, Dard and Aryan ethnic strains. You will see beauty of Indus river in your biking route. Your biking route to Lamayuru located at 11,800ft. Lamayuru is a very high altitude deserted area of Leh and famous for 10th centuries old gompas (Buddhist Temple). During your bike riding you will cross Fotula Pass - the highest peak point between Leh& Srinagar at 13,479 ft.
