About tour and program

This is a unique Himalayan adventure! During your trip, you will see the most interesting places of the Ladakh and Zanskar region, but from a new perspective. In 2020, new "roads" connecting the Zanskar Valley with the iconic Leh - Manali route were opened. Of course, these are not easy or asphalt roads, but winding gravel roads leading through Singo - Sir Sir La passes that were previously unavailable for vehicles. No one has ever ridden them among foreign travelers or riders - due to the Covid-19 pandemic; India was closed to foreign tourism for most of the 2020.

You can ride the roads that hardly anyone has traveled so far. Sounds tempting? For Planet Way Round, very much! The trip is mostly off-road. You will pass through the unique Zanskar Valley. You will visit the most beautiful Buddhist monasteries of the Zanskar and Indus valleys. You will taste a motorcycle "roller coaster" in the highest mountains in the world. You will visit the capital of Ladakh - Leh. You will cross the passes located at an altitude of about 5,000 meters above sea level, including the highest lakes; Pangong Tso and Tso Moriri and cross the highest motorable pass in the world - Khardung La!

As befits this part of the world, you will ride Royal Enfields, the "enduro" version that is Royal Enfield Himalaya. The trip is purported for people with off-road experience who are not afraid of inconveniences, weather changes, and difficult terrain conditions.
