Rider with a Mania
Adrenalin junkie or not, the experience of riding a bike on the Ladakh terrain is unparalleled. There is slush, snow fall, rain, violent water crossings, meandering streams and occasionally a smooth ride on a beautifully tarred road. The evenings are spent in the most beautiful locations, making the whole experience magical. A bike trip to Ladakh is one, which you must go on at least once in your lifetime.

Akansha & Sohil had this to say
Because at the end of the day, we all want to put our feet up
What makes a stay truly memorable is not the luxury or amenities. It is the hospitality that every one remembers. And when you couple that with a great location, clean and comfortable rooms, you can be certain that it will turn out to be a memorable stay.
No Hidden Costs
What you see is what you get
We pride ourselves on being ethical in an industry riddled with hidden costs. At Unwind Outdoor, we deliver on what we say. We provide a clear and transparent list of the costs covered by us and those covered by the rider.
Cut the Middlemen
Get the most bang for your bucks
We own our bikes, plan and execute the tours as well as market them on our site, unlike sites that only market tours. This translates into you getting the most out of the money you spend, since it isn’t wasted on commissions at every level.
You know what that means? You see your money being spent on you.
Get Expert guidance on Accessories
It is imperative that you invest in good personal riding gear from gloves to knee guards, jackets, shoes etc. The list is long and we’ll help you carry exactly what is needed.
Planning for a trip is extremely important in a place like Ladakh. Most people have little to no experience of what the terrain and weather conditions are like.
- Be prepared – mentally and physically for what the trip entails. Unless you feel ready to take on the challenges, you may not be able to fully enjoy what Ladakh has to offer.
- Carry suitable clothing – A trip to the mountains always requires suitable clothing and gear. This is even more vital while planning this trip as it requires very specific clothing.
- Choose the right time – The experience and riding skills are different in different months. Choose wisely to get the most out of your experience
- Pick the right bike – Safety and caution are of primary importance. Choose a bike that is in the best condition and suitable for the rugged terrain.
- Plan your itinerary – Or leave it to the experts (like us). Do not try to cram too much into too few days. Keep buffer days for contingencies and unexpected circumstances.
- Carry your medicines – Keep in mind that you could be hit by Acute mountain sickness due to low oxygen levels. This can be life threatening and requires sufficient acclimatization before reaching the high altitudes. Also always carry generic medicines for common problems.
- Allow yourself to soak it in – Instead of trying to cover all stops, make the most of where you go. Spend your time leisurely and take it all in.
Unwind Outdoor Promise : Whatever your fitness and riding skills, we can design the right plan for you.
Thank you very much to you and your team for arranging this fantastic tour. One of the best pick from this tour was your meticulous planning and promptness of service. All arrangements were fantastic, be it a delivery of vehicle at Chandigarh airport, hotels particularly at Chandigarh, Leh, Nubra, Pangong. However the best was at Jispa, Kargil and Srinagar for different reasons. Jispa was simple but authentic with very tasty food.

Sunil, after I ran 21k Marathon I bragged about it for years. The same is being repeated again, with my ambition to drive across the Himalayas, which was almost faded with Srinagar under curfew. You and Chetan were the spark to our fire that we could do this drive and without a single trouble. Driving is a passion but driving thru places where there are no roads is trouble, but your breakup of program and awesome car condition helped us actually sail thru. Three cheers and five stars.

Wow. wow, wow. What a experience! We took the route of Delhi - Jammu - Srinagar - Leh - Sarchu - Manali - Delhi. Sunil Kapoor gave us excellent service which includes his next to new 4WD in immaculate condition and all hotels were top class. Coming from Australia, we were bit nervous in start but when we met Sunil, we had full trust and all went very positive. Sunil gave us perfect instructions and everything was according to plan. Thank you Sunil and your team for our one of the best experience in life you have provided us.

Eight of us from Sri Lanka got Sunil to arrange a self driven tour to Leh and we are very happy with our decision. He was punctual, trustworthy and met our expectations. The service provided was very professional. As foreigners it’s hard to arrange such a tour by ourselves and Unwind outdoor filled in the gap perfectly. All places we stayed were nice and decent. Should specifically mention about the two Scorpios which we instantly fell in love with. They were very well maintained ...
Friends from SriLanka
After days of research, we finally came across a facebook page called ‘Unwind Outdoors’. It seemed like our dream was going to be finally true. Very reasonably priced and Sunil from Unwind was like a know-it-all person.
The itinerary was so crisp and so very well laid out that there was no reason for us to worry other than coping up with nature’s fury.

We did a SUV self drive trip from Chandigarh to Ladakh and back organized by Unwind Outdoor.
Highly recommend Unwind Outdoor as Sunil and Manpreet took care of everything we needed (car, hotel bookings, sightseeing and food recommendations, permits) and everything was organized seamlessly. Sunil was very patient with all our queries, giving suggestions and options to suit our preferences.

Great to see the know-how of the Unwind Outdoor team regarding every aspect of the Srinagar - Leh - Chandigarh self drive trip. From weather conditions, to road conditions, to health/clothing requirements, and also driving instructions - Sunil and Manpreet are warm, meticulous and knowledgable. Villa Himalaya in Sonamarg surpassed all our expectations and ensured that our expected standards for the rest of the trip were extremely high.

Thanks Sunil for arranging a wonderful trip. Everything went well and we were in good hands with friendly and competent drivers. Accommodation was good and tents were comfortable beyond our expectations. We didn't have problem with food choices. It was a totally rejuvenating vacation and experience for us. Thanks from us in Singapore!
We had an amazing 9-day from Manali to Leh. Serene, breathless and picturesque. High altitude sickness was a big issue for us but we were in good hands.
Unwind Outdoor was superb in arranging and coordinating the trip. Taking care of all arrangements and checking-in on us. Kudos to Sunil and his team.

Six of us (two families) travelled to Leh in Jul / Aug 2015 and we had an excellent experience with Unwind Outdoor. From the very beginning of our excited planning phase, Sunil has been willingly suggesting us options, number of days, places to visit etc. He has all the knowledge of the terrain, passionate about trekking and traveling himself, so he understands travel-crazy people such as me and my quirks.
We landed in Leh in time for cloudbursts and flashfloods and landslides (along with mud and rocks sliding too). Despite Nature's fury, Sunil and Skarma made sure we were utmost safe and comfortable. These guys are just not into travel business, they help people fulfil their travel dreams. Truly! Go guys!!
