This is something new in our offer: motorbike trip only for women. Many years ago Polish climbers led by famous Wanda Rutkiewicz conquered the highest Himalayan peaks. Nowadays women in the Himalayas do not surprise anymore. We would like to invite all women-bikers for our “Women Only” Himalayan adventure. We will ride through the highest motorable passes in the world… We will do this trip on our own, in women style: wisely, with perfect fellowship. Ola Trzaskowska will guide the trip.

Day 2

Leh (hotel)

Leh is very interesting town, with a lot of points of interest. We have time to get closer to the Buddhist culture: we visit one of the most impressive monasteries in Ladakh – Thiskey. We also see the old royal palace of the kings of Ladakh – Shey. In the evening we cannot miss Tybetan market. We bet there will be a lot of women shopping – necklaces, earrings… In the meantime we acclimatize to the altitude.

Day 5

Nubra Valley – Pangong Tso Lake (tent)

There is the world highest desert in the Nubra Valley. There are sand dunes which we can ride… We test how the Enfields go on the sand. Then we head to another five thousand meters pass – Wari La. This pass is one of the less frequented and most beautiful in all Ladakh. There will be very few villages on the way. Probably we meet just a few people today. It is wild, tiresome and beautiful day! Our destination for today is Pangong Tso. The bordering lake between India and China. It covers more than 4000 square meters. The scenery is magic. Also for yoga practitioners. You will see!
