Note :- We the team of Snow lion Himalaya travel requested all riders to ride safe. Since from last so many years while working with different riders from different parts of world we saw lot of unacceptable accidents which really spoils your holiday or in extreme cases it is even threatening to life too, so please be in speed limit for your adventurous ride and for your better tomorrow. We don't care about our property (bike) which we can fixed or buy easily but not life, life is very precious. So please keep it in mind the following things before Ride a bike in Ladakh. Firstly riding in Ladakh is totally different as compared to other parts of the world. As riding off road is ok which is almost handy but actually the problem is about metalled road, as Ladakh being a sandy and desert place we always find a small layer of sand over the road everywhere, where there is not enough grip in the road, which makes the ride very slippery and coupled with high speed results in accidents and being a major cause of all the bike accidents we like to ensure it to our riders. Secondly never ever cross the speed limit as the roads are narrow particularly on the passes and there are lot of sharp & blind turns. And thirdly always wear a helmet, because we saw lot of riders remove their helmet for the sake of photography and they often feel little bit uncomfortable to wear and remove it again and he prefer to ride without helmet and this will cause all the problem. And lastly as usual be aware of dogs & cows walking on the road and over take only from right side.
