KTM has announced the Great Ladakh Adventure Tour from August 21 to September 3. The 14-day tour is conceptualized as the apex adventure event under the property of KTM Pro-Experiences and will see the participation of KTM 250 and 390 Adventure owners from across the country.
The Great Ladakh Adventure Tour promises to be an experience perfectly suited for the KTM Adventure machine and the rider. Unlike regular tours to Ladakh, special routes have been curated through the less travelled paths of Pangong Tso, Tso Moriri and Siachen. Riders will conquer over 2,300 km traversing multiple terrains like tarmac, hills, sand dunes, dry riverbeds, slush, gravel, mud, river crossing, forests and twisties. The route planned is as follows – Chandigarh- Manali- Jispa- Sarchu -Leh- Nubhra Valley- Pangong Tso- Tso Moriri-Sarchu- Manali- Chandigarh.
KTM has collaborated with Padma Shri awardee Ajeet Bajaj and his award-winning adventure tour company Snow Leopard Adventures for curating the tour through uncharted territories. With over 30 years of experience in adventure sports, Mr. Bajaj was conferred the Padma Shri by the President of India in 2012 for his achievements in adventure sports. He is an adventure enthusiast who has climbed MT. Everest with his daughter and has scaled 6 of the 7 summits, the highest mountains in every continent.
The Great Ladakh Adventure Tour will be led by KTM Experts who will also conduct pre-tour training sessions and train the riders for this once in a lifetime experience. There will also be a special motivational talk by Padma Shri Ajeet Bajaj which will set the tone for the tour. One of the key highlights of the tour is the special set of high-altitude KTM Adventure Academy training at Nubra, which will be conducted at 12000+ ft.
