  • Trip introduction

    Take on the adventure of exploring the dramatic mountains of the Spiti Valley on an 8-day motorbiking itinerary. You'll visit the famed crescent-shaped lake of Chandratal, travel to distant villages of Chitkul and Komik, ride through the high-altitude pass of Kumzum-La, visit the historic monasteries of Dhankar and Tabo, apart from a range of other destinations. With powerful Royal Enfield motorbikes on hand, you'll roar through the barren mountains of Spiti, with an entourage of like-minded motorbikers and an experienced support team.

    Please note that price displayed is the per person price for a booking for one motorbike rider and one pillion rider. An additional refundable, security deposit of INR 10,000 per motorbike, not included in the cost displayed, is to be paid directly to the tour operator.

    Destination

    Spiti, a cold desert mountain valley, sits at the intersection of India and Tibet. The valley offers a unique blend of Indo-Tibetan and Buddhist cultures, emphasized by ancient monasteries, some of which date back a thousand years. The valley is also home to an off-beat motorbiking route that has started gaining popularity only in the recent few years. The reason for this emerging popularity is quite apparent with the incredible beauty of the valley's snow-capped summits and imposing mountains, rising far beyond the clouds.

    Your Spiti motorbiking adventure begins in Delhi. As you head north towards the Spiti Valley, you'll halt at small, hillside villages and visit cultural landmarks and monastery. You'll explore Kaza, the largest city in the valley, and camp in Swiss tents near the Chandratal Lake. You'll circle back to the lush, green valleys of Manali, ending the tour with unforgettable experiences.

    Destination highlights

    • Explore Spiti Valley on an 8-day motorbiking adventure.
    • Visit distant villages like Chitkul and Hikkim.
    • Spend a night in Swiss tents near the Chandratal Lake.
    • Get absolutely stunning views of mountains and hills in the Spiti Valley.
