En route, you'll stop to visit historic monasteries like Diskit and Dhankar to get a taste of the unique Indo-Tibetan and Buddhist cultures of Spiti and Ladakh. With powerful Royal Enfield motorbikes on hand, you'll roar through the barren mountains with an entourage of like-minded motorbikers and an experienced support team.

    Destination

    This unique 16-day motorbiking trip gives you the best of both worlds, the Spiti Valley and Ladakh. Spiti, a cold desert mountain valley, sits at the intersection of India and Tibet. The valley is home to the most ancient monasteries in India, some of which date back a thousand years. Ladakh, the land of high mountain passes, is also the land of extraordinary beauty. The Ladakhi terrain, flanked by the arid mountains of the Trans-Himalayan range, is home to the most celebrated motorbiking route in India.

    Your adventure begins as you travel north from Delhi and enter the Spiti Valley, where you'll spend a week visiting villages from Hikkim to Tabo. You'll continue north from Spiti and enter Ladakh, where you'll spend another week visiting landmarks from the Leh Palace to the Khardung-La. You'll visit the state capital of Srinagar and return to Delhi, ending the tour with unforgettable memories.
