Explore the Land of Monks and Nomads in the high mountains with us. This motorcycle journey takes you past ancient monasteries and across the World’s Highest Motorable roads to High Altitude lakes and desert in the shadows of over 6000m high, snowcapped peaks. We twist through lush, green alpine forests, sleep in the infamous houseboats on Dal Lake in Sri Nagar, ‘The crown of India’ and take you on terrifying and mind-blowingly spectacular roads. Every day is action-packed with adventurous excitement and infused with wonderfully warm, welcoming and ancient Himalayan culture.
There is an unbeatable excitement about a long distance motorcycle trip. Seventeen days of riding twisty mountain roads with scenic vistas, ending in Manali (Himachal Pradesh). We’ll test our handling skills on a variety of road conditions and surfaces. Since the Himalayas are in a constant state of movement, no itinerary is ever set in stone. Each morning your tour leader will gather information and assess conditions ahead. If our planned route is blocked, we may have to detour and change the route/accommodation, or wait until safe passage is possible. Finally, this motorbike tour in the Indian Himalayas offers fantastic adventure on legendary Royal Enfield motorcycles, stunning panoramic views, a very real cultural experience and nonstop incredible fun the kind you only get when you are willing to step out of your comfort zone and just go for it!!!
