Trip description

Shimla to Leh tour

Grab the steering wheel, and challenge yourself in a 17 day climb from Shimla to Leh up to the highest mountain passes in the world and roam through the magnificent Spiti valley. The jeep will allow us to go the distance, and be able to get to every nook and cranny in the remote regions of the famous state of Himachal Pradesh. Feel the stones underneath your wheels rock as we pass by wide rivers like the Sutlej and Indus and cross the Konzum-la, Taglong and Baralacha Mountain passes. This is your chance to get a firsthand experience of the unique blend of Hindi-Buddhist cultures and traditions in this secluded enclave; visit traditional monasteries and temples, smell the scents of the markets, walk in the alleys of the tiniest authentic villages- all wrapped in a spectacular scenery of snow-capped peaks.

What our explorers are saying

“A real driving experience!”

“It took me a while to find a travel company that will let me drive my own jeep instead of being subjected to the whims of an Indian driver. This was indeed an unforgettable adventure ride! I highly recommend it to all jeep and road lovers. ”

Eugene Spector

“Epic ride”

“There are several ways to go from Shimla to Leh, but a 4×4 is definitely the best way. We were able to take much last traveled paths thanks to our killer jeeps, so we visited some really secluded places. It was amazing!”
