[Summer 2017] Cycling in Ladahk

Hello

I plan to go cycling in Ladakh for 4/5 weeks, starting probably mid august, but flexible on the dates.

There are 2 options : the classic Srinagar Kargil Leh Manali road, stuning, with passes at more than 5000m but with some traffic or an alternate raod after Kargil through Padum. I am also opened to other options.

I like wild camping as many times as it is possible, I am used and trained to cycle in remote mountainous area:
- Pamir highway in 2015, Andes in 2012/1013.
I may stop for some trekking along the road, and I am 38 yrs old and I will be glad to share this adevnture with people also used and trained to cycle such roads and with same goals.

See ya.

Late September for me

I shall be cycling on the Srinagar-Leh HY in late September 2017. As for you, you can make a round trip cycling route as either Srinagar-Leh- Manali. You don't need to wild camp on both these HYs are a few shelters are available.
If you're travelling Srinagar_Leh, there are a few treks starting from Kargil area (Padum as you already mentioned). Similarly, in the Leh_Manali HY, you can trek /cycle from Tso Kar to Debring /Pang, Tso Moriri too.
