Ride with the Wind: Wari La

  • Duration5-6 Hours
  • Distance105 km roundtrip

When in Ladakh, an early morning visit to Wari La is a must. One of the most scenic passes in Ladakh, Wari La is also the fourth-highest motorable road in the world. This pass connects two of the most exotic valleys in this trans-Himalayan region. Here you are rewarded with breathtaking views of the Nubra Valley, which lies beyond the pass, as well as the many villages that dot the Indus Valley. Wari La was opened only in 2008 as an alternative route into the Nubra Valley. Following a short safety briefing at the top, you'll be ready to cycle down the most extraordinary track that the Ladakhi Himalayas have to offer. The path criss-crosses its way down the mountainside into the green oasis of Sakti village. This exhilarating ride comes to an end at Kharu town.
