Program

This is a unique Himalayan adventure! During this 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 Shinkula or singo 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. The same applies to the Rohtang Attal Tunnel, which was opened in 2020. So you have a rare opportunity to feel like real explorers! You can ride the roads that hardly anyone has traveled so far. Sounds tempting? For us 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 5000 meters above sea level, including 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 Rotyal Enfield Himalaya. The trip is purported for people with off-road experience who are not afraid of inconveniences, weather changes and difficult terrain conditions.
