http://www.rideofmylife.in/ offers a range of multi-day trips around in India Himalayas. They provide motorcycles, accommodation, guides, support track and all logistics. Our trip was close to what this one is: https://www.rideofmylife.in/motorcycle-tours/himalayan-adventure-ladakh/manali-to-srinagar .
High passes included:
Rohtang (3980m), Baralach La (4850m), Lachlung La (5059m), Nakee La (4738m), Taglang La (5328m – the second highest motorable pass in the world), Chang La (5391m – the highest motorable pass in the world), Khardung La (5359m – or this one the second highest motorable pass in the world; it incorrectly claims to be the highest pass at 5602m). Clearly, there is a bit of confusion regarding the exact elevation of the passes. The fact is that they are very high and one always feels altitude sickness.
