- Over 20 riders covered about 2,300km
- Conquered the world’s highest motorable road
- Trained to ride off-road at Nubra dunes
KTM India recently concluded the second season of its 14-day adventure ride, the Great Ladakh Adventure Tour. Over 20 riders were part of the expedition in which they covered about 2,300km on varying terrain.
One of the main highlights of the expedition for riders was conquering the Umling La pass which is the highest motorable road at an altitude of 19,000 feet above sea level. The participants also explored other key locations in Ladakh including Tanglang La, Khardung La, Nubra, Pangong Tso, and Tso Morriri.
The tour also gave the participants an opportunity to ride through a variety of terrain extensively. This included twisty tarmac, hills, sand dunes, dry riverbeds, river crossings, and much more. Helping them tackle it all safely and with the right technique, especially the off-roading part, was the high-altitude Adventure Academy at Nubra conducted by KTM’s master trainers. Held at 10,000 feet, this training session mainly focused on the appropriate riding technique on tricky surfaces like loose sand.
The next such expedition KTM is set to conduct is the ‘Tour the unexplored’ which will take participants through some of the fascinating parts of Northeast India. It is scheduled to commence on 1 October 2022.
