    Can you please tell me, is there any store in leh where i can rent a bicycle for half day/full day? how much will it cost? What is the renting procedure? Is there any Security Deposit if so how much?

    I am a bird watcher. I will do Birding in every place. So, a bicycle will be very helpful for me. I will travel to Nubra, Pangong, Tso kar, Tso moriri and Hanle. I have hired a taxi for all these 15 days and i will stay in small guest house or home-stay. So, can please tell me, whether the ladakhi home in all those places use bicycle for their domestic use? can i borrow their Cycle for Half day for birding?

    1. Yes a bicycle is available in Ladakh for rent. However I cannot tell you how much it will cost because I have never asked.
    2. Yes they will ask you to put down some money as security which they will return when you return the bicycle.
    3. I have never seen a Ladakhi on bicycle which I guess could be because they are living at a really high altitude place. Cycling around there daily will be a bit of a problem because of low oxygen.
