Himalayan Heroes adventure to Eastern Himalayas-INDIA

January 2017, Himalayan Heroes crew ventured through the most stunning yet remote land of eastern India. Between the lost tribes of Nagaland (Head hunters) and the most isolated settlement of Tawang, upper region of Arunachal Pradesh. Two weeks motorcycling through dense bamboo forest and bone freezing cold of Sela pass whilst tackling endless bends of amazing road to Twang. It was a pure motorcycling experience to discover the authentic culture, delicious cuisine, breathtaking landscape and heart-warming people of Arunachal and Nagaland.  

Our original plan was to cross border into  Burma (Myanmar) from India and spend around a week to explore Burma and eventually head back to India; which didn't happen due to some political instability and we worked out the plan B, to ride around North-East of India, and it was a great decision. 
Here below are few shots from our ride and ever since we have came back from Eastern India, we've been planning a new ride. Can't wait to ride there again.....

The Death Vallley of Indian Himalaya



 
Saddling up to ride around Indian sub-continent including high Himalaya? Here is one route that you don't  want to miss on your riding itinerary. "The Death Valley of Indian Himalaya". Yes indeed, its one of the most breathtaking regions of India, where you will tackle the roads of your dream adventure. This ride is remarkable in every terms of motorcycling, the scenery is sublime and imposing and nature appears in her wildest and grandest moods.


 Everything in Himachal Pradesh is on a stupendous scale. it's a region of Himalayan shepherds reside in the most isolated settlements in middle of nowhere. Getting there is an adventure itself.  The mighty Chandra-Bhaga river rolls along in a deep and narrow gorge of Pangi. 




 On the lower ranges are grassy slopes of rich pasture with dense forests of pine and cedar, while higher up the stern and majestic mountains attaining an altitude from 18,000 to 21,000 feet rising far above the line of eternal snow. But all this is not rugged and sublimity and naked beauty. Every few miles the traveler reaches tolerably open nooks of surpassing beauty, which may have been small lakes in some gone by age, while the river was cutting its course."

Into Thin Air--Riding To The Lost Shangrila- MUSTANG.


Into Thin Air--Riding To The Lost Shangrila--MUSTANG.

We have been riding the treacherous Nepal Himalayan roads since last five years, they are tough to ride and we go high up to the mountainous regions on off the beaten tracks, where regular people would hardly go. Or even won't imagine to go, why would they go there? No five stars hotels to stay, no fast food chain, forget about riding!





 Where its cold and weather is extreme but we love it, we love adventurous motorcycling, and that's the reason; we are going back to ride Nepal again on fall November, we're going to ride the higher region of Nepal Himalaya, "Mustang", The Land of fierce "Khampa", This land had been forbidden for the foreigners till 1995, even today, to enter into that forgotten land, we need to obtain a special permit to enter into that forbidden land. 

 Yes, November, we would love you to   join us for the ride of lifetime into one of the most unexplored regions of the Himalayas. Upper Mustang provides experienced riders with an adventure that very few have dared to undertake.

This ride is not for the faint hearted. it checks you to the core, It will push your riding skills, the bike, and endurance to the limit. The rewards are plentiful however as you get the chance to experience the last remaining Tibetan kingdom in all it’s glory. The majority of the tour rides close to 4000m on terrain which regularly encounters snowfall, landslides and glacial melt. So get ready to take deep breathes!


This adventure is like nowhere in the world, riding in middle of nowhere among the highest mountains of Nepal Himalaya, encountering the local settlements of the high mountains and riding in the shadow of 8,000meters high mountains. It won't be easy,if you think that this motorcycling is gonna be easy and fun than you are dreaming it, on our previous ride, we have had some of the riders who had to quite the ride and jump into the back-up jeep, they couldn't take the exhaustion and the altitude and the rough roads, Royal is not really a off road motorcycle but there is no other way to enjoy this ride than on Royal Enfield. A legendary machine. 

14 days adventure, once in a lifetime on Royal Enfield in Nepal, have you ever imagined that you would travel Himalaya on a motorcycle? Will witness the 8,000meters high mountains. Will live what you have been watching on National Geography or Discovery channels? yes, this is the ride, which is gonna fulfill your zest for adventurous motorcycling. 
we are going regardless, are you coming with us on a ride of "Lifetime"?

Motorcycle Expeditions to Laos & Thailand-

We have been riding and will continue pioneering  in the Himalayan countries, Nepal has been outstanding experience as well as Bhutan never failed to appeal our riders and still keeps dragging attentions of riders from all around the world. Indian Himalayan roads are incredibly beautiful but now we really need to go out of Indian Sub-continent and explore the South-east Asian countries, we are commencing from Thailand & Laos.
 This is the call for our previous riders, who have been our friends on long expeditions to India, Nepal and Bhutan.



Fellas:  If you have a bit more time and like to explore and ride more extensively, our new tour provides an outstanding opportunity to obtain a thorough impression of the uniqueness of a large part of Northern Thailand and parts of North West Laos. The roads are mainly rural two lanes with a variety of surfaces and wind through areas of spectacular mountainous beauty. In total this trip covers approximately 12,000 km's  of some of the best riding anywhere in the world. Between Mae Hong Son and Mae Taeng there are 1,864 bends or twisties ( I know bend goes forever in the Himalayas:P) which gives everybody a great opportunity to improve their cornering skills whatever their level of expertise.


Among the highlights of the trip we will visit the highest mountain in Thailand (Doi Inthanon), 2,565 meters.(It's not high enough, on our India ride we go till 5'600meters)  We will visit the Long Neck Women of the Kayan Tribe, famous for the brass rings that they wear around their necks.
We explore the Golden Triangle, the region made famous by Khun Sa, once one of the world’s most infamous drug king, who even had his own private army.




We will explore the remote and mountainous province of Nan and the little town of Bo Kluea, famous for its stunning views and its unique salt wells, all the time riding through wonderful landscapes of rivers and mountains.
North of Bo Kluea we cross into Laos were we enjoy spectacular mountain riding to Pak Beng, Luang Prabang a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Vang Vieng and finally the capital, Vientiane. Once back in Thailand we continue along the Mekong River into the mountains of Phu Ruea. Before returning to Chiang Mai we visit the site of Thailand's first capital city, Sukothai- another UNESCO 




World Heritage Site. 
10 days on the road and total 12 days off and on road experience on Kawasaki 650, our crew is so excited to change the bike. Royal Enfield has been a real pain in the arse as the suspension is a bit of issue with this bike. we would like to run our first trip on fall November, As i said, this is gonna be a soft and relaxing trip.
This trip includes all your accommodations and food including day beverages, motorcycles, fuel and a professional Motorcycle guide including back-up jeep, monument entrance fees and much more.
