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."

Motorcycle Adventure in the Himalayas

The Indian Himalayan motorcycle adventure is the Himalayan odyssey, this famous Manali-Leh road is the great adventure to experience once-in-a-lifetime on Royal Enfield. We ride around 1500kms during 10 days ride, riding some the toughest and highest motor-able roads on the planet. These highest and toughest terrains have been our playgrounds since last many years and we ride there every year from May to September, As this Little Tibet of India remains close during 7 months of the year due to heavy snowfall and harsh climate condition, when temperature drops down to -30 in the winter. The northern land of Indian sub-continent is mountainous and sparsely populated, arid geography and high mountain passes makes it hard motorcycle trip and checks the riders core.   

The road is real fun, 50% is gravel and rest is tarmac with pits and holes that you may struggle to avoid. Border road organization works throughout the summer to repair the road but the harsh winter cracks it up and leaves it back in the same condition, if you have got a a saggy beer belly, a Kidney belt may help you to tight! 

The best time to ride the northern Indian Himalayas is summer, Mid June to Mid September, although its summer but weather up at the higher passes changes in a minute, a rain suit and few extra inner liners are advised to pack in your day back-pack.  

On ride with us, you must have at lest 2 to 3 years of motorcycling experience and fair bit of gravel ride experience as well. Roads are full of tricks that you need to know, how to tackle! Sharpe bends, zigzagging constant hairpins, slick bends, mud-patches and snow sleets, sand patches and hard-core gravel. If you are pillion, make that you keep an eye on the road as well, rider may not always avoid the pits and Royal Enfield suspensions are not really shock proof and result can be tragic. We have had many causality during our rides, it usually happens while racing or not been careful on the road. It's a holiday ride and we will not allow you to race. 

The scenery is so sublime and it keep dragging our attentions, we have plenty of time on the road and you can always stop to take photos and enjoy the ride, there is always a back-jeep with our crew to look after you.

A CHARITY RIDE---The Great Indian Ride

 Raising fund to empower the women in India, to support the underprivileged kids in the urban and On your arrival in India, you will meet our crew at the airport on your arrival. You will be well looked after right from the beginning until your departure. Every single participant is requested to raise minimum 500USD to support the NGO apart from the tour expenses. for more details, please have a look on

The Great Indian Motorcycle Ride is a motorcycle expedition not for the faint hearted and will be an amazing journey traveling from the North to the South of India, and will take approximately 32 days in duration. This event being one of our biggest adventures and challenges will truly test the core character of any rider.
We are excited to announce that this amazing adventure will be raising funds and supporting national charity - ‘PLAN INDIA’. The aim to educate, build and strengthen the remote communities in the way of establishing schools, hospitals, orphanages and supporting other charity organizations of our precious and beloved Himalayas is one of our proudest initiatives.
Commencing mid September 2016, this adventure will cover over 6000km of some amazing and diverse scenery that one will ever come across. We will tackle some of the most treacherous mountain passes in Asia including one of the worlds highest motorable roads situated at an elevation of over 5600m - KHARDUNG (LA) PASS. We will meet the sacred Ganges where millions of Hindus who believe to bathe in its water is to be absolved of all sins, and to be cremated on its banks and have one’s ashes immersed in its waters ensures salvation of the soul. Staying in Rishikesh, a pilgrimage town and the starting point of the holy Char Dham pilgrim route, we will encounter the beautiful daily ritual of the Aarti prayer. This ceremony takes place as the sunsets over the horizon, and with thousands of tiny oil lamps lit and set adrift from the banks of the holy river – The mother GANGES, it will be a spiritual experience. If spirituality is not your thing, then you will certainly not be disappointed in the visual aspect.
Moving further South we stop to view some of the oldest temples dating back to 950AD. Furthermore we’ll visit ancient forts, monasteries and some of the havelis (palaces) in the state of Rajasthan including India’s pride, the Taj Mahal.
Continuing through diverse landscapes we will stay overnight in Nagpur. Nagpur (also known as the Orange City – one for the KTM lovers) is situated at the Zero Mile marker indicating the geographical and dead centre of India.
No trip to India is complete without visiting The Kanha National Park now known as the Kanha Tiger Reserve. Rudyard Kiplings famous ‘The Jungle Book’ was inspired by this place, and we certainly can’t wait to be up close and personal with the Bengal Tiger. If we survive the visit to see the exhilarating Tigers, we’ll then continue on past Kerala’s vast expanse paddy fields. The neat little hamlets (a type of settlement) which lines up along either side of the canals are just as amazing in panoramic sights that one can never forget! The Chinese fishing nets, the reminiscent past trade links, and finally to ride to India’s most southern point, will be one of our greatest and rewarding achievements, Cape Comorin (where the Arabian Sea, Indian Ocean and The Bay of Bengal meet).
This is just an overview of the extensive itinerary we have planned, and if you wish to find out more then please click on the Itinerary Tab at the top of the page.
The inaugural GREAT INDIAN RIDE will have its challenges, and as each year passes we will further develop and make changes accordingly.

Dane Transhimalaya Trophy

Dane Transhimalaya Trophy

Einmal zum Dach der Welt und zurück

Eine Motorradtour im Himalaya – als sich die Gelegenheit für mich ergab bei der Dane Transhimalaya Trophy teil zu nehmen, vermischten sich sofort 2 Gefühlslagen: zum einen freudige Aufregung, zum anderen tiefer Respekt vor dem was da wohl auf mich zukommt. Diese Zweiteilung sollte mich fast die ganze Reise begleiten. Denn diese Reise berührte mich tief in mir drin, sowohl positiv als auch negativ. Es wurde ein faszinierender Trip, mit unbeschreiblichen Eindrücken, tollen Erfahrungen und sehr intensiven Momenten. Im wahrsten Sinne des Slogans: „a once in a lifetime trip“.

Dane Transhimalaya Trophy 2015

Du fährst nach Indien, in den Himalaya und machst dort eine Motorradtour! Ich kann mir das Grinsen kaum verkneifen. Der Urlaub ist genehmigt, die Gattin hat zugestimmt, der Reise steht nichts mehr im Weg. Von mir selbst ausgenommen, doch dazu später mehr. Ich nehme an der Dane Transhimalaya Trophy 2015 teil, diese findet zum 3. Mal statt. MotoPort-Chef Jens Föhl hatte mich bereits 2014 angesprochen, ein Jahr später ist es dann soweit. Ich sage zu, die Vorbereitung beginnt. Schließlich geht es nicht mal um die Ecke, sondern nach Indien. Da gilt es einiges zu beachten. Glücklicherweise hat MotoPort eine fertige Checkliste zu allen Themen. Wie läuft es mit dem notwendigen Visum, was ist gesundheitlich zu beachten, welche Impfungen sind empfehlenswert, welche Medikamente sollte man mitnehmen. Großes Plus ist für mich die Tatsache dass ein Arzt die Tour begleitet. Dr. Peter Markreiter hat bereits an den vorangegangen Dane Trophys teilgenommen, kennt sowohl die Tücken der Strecke als auch die gesundheitlichen Risiken. Soviel kann bereits jetzt verraten werden: er hatte einiges zu tun.
Vor Reiseantritt galt es die Checkliste abzuarbeiten. Ein Schlafsack musste her, denn einige Nächte werden wir im Zeltlager verbringen. Mit der Medikamentenliste geht es zum Hausarzt, die notwendigen Impfungen werden verpasst, die Apotheke macht das Geschäft ihres Lebens. Egal, ich habe keine Lust irgendwo mit Durchfall zu hocken und keinen medikamentösen Korken dabei zu haben. Das Visum geht auch recht schnell – glücklicherweise, denn ich kümmere mich auf den letzten Drücker darum. Dummerweise läuft mein Reisepass im Januar ab, Indien will allerdings bei der Einreise einen mindestens noch 6 Monate gültigen Ausweis. Also wird der auch noch erneuert. Dann geht es recht schnell: Visa-Antrag online ausgefüllt und ausgedruckt, nach Frankfurt gefahren und dort abgegeben, eine Woche später hole ich meinen neuen Reisepass mit eingeklebtem Visum wieder ab. Der Onlineantrag ist nicht ganz so einfach, aber auch hier unterstützt MotoPort: es gibt Musteranträge die einem die ganze Sache sehr erleichtern. Geschafft! Der Reise steht nichts mehr im Weg.
Je näher der Reiseantritt kommt, desto mehr konkurrieren meine beiden Befindungszustände um mein Wohlsein. Große Bedenken habe ich ob der Ernährung, denn mein Magen reagiert gerne mal empfindlich. Also beschließe ich für den Zeitraum der Transhimalaya Trophy zum Vegetarier zu werden. Leitungswasser werde ich lediglich an meine Haut lassen, Zähne werden mit Mineralwasser geputzt. Getränke will ich nur aus geschlossenen Behältnissen (die ich selbst geöffnet habe) zu mir nehmen. Salat und Rohkost werde ich ebenfalls vermeiden. Damit fahre ich übrigens über die gesamte Reise sehr gut, ob es an meinen Maßnahmen liegt oder einfach grundsätzlich halb so schlimm ist, kann ich nicht sagen.
Mittlerweile haben sich die Teilnehmer der Dane Transhimalaya Trophy 2016 in einer Facebook-Gruppe verknüpft. Hier erfahre ich das Frank ebenfalls ab Frankfurt fliegt, also beschließen wir die Reise gemeinsam anzutreten. Am 30. Juli treffen wir uns am Flughafen Frankfurt und um 21.15 Uhr hebt Air India in Richtung Neu Delhi ab. Knapp 8 Stunden später landen wir auf dem Indira Gandhi International Airport. Gepäck abholen, durch die Visa-Kontrolle und dann werden wir von einem sehr freundlichen jungen Mann abgeholt. Die Flughafentür öffnet sich und die Hitze in Verbindung mit sehr hoher Luftfeuchtigkeit trifft uns wie eine Keule. Das kleine weiße Taxi hat unglaublich viel Platz und fühlt sich an wie ein rollendes Iglu. Wenn Klima, dann richtig – werden wir noch öfter erleben. Zum ersten Mal treffen wir auf indischen Verkehr. Wo sich aus verkehrsplanerischer Sicht 2 Spuren auf eine ebenfalls 2-spurige Straße einfädeln, drängeln sich Busse, LKW, Autos und Mopeds zu einem gordischen Knoten, einzig die ungefähre Fahrtrichtung eint das Chaos. Dazu hupt alles und jeder, und zwar ständig. Glücklicherweise ist die Fahrt zum Hotel kurz und wir treffen den Rest der Truppe.
01 Hotel Delhi 01
Insgesamt 24 Teilnehmer haben sich zur Dane Trophy angemeldet, sie kommen aus allen Gegenden von Deutschland, Bruno vertritt die Eidgenossen. Und wir lernen unseren Reiseleiter kennen: Buddhi Sing Chang. Buddhi ist der Veranstalter vor Ort, 30 Jahre alt und stammt aus Manali. Er hat in Europa studiert, ist ein weltoffener Typ und wie sich später noch herausstellt sehr trinkfest. Nach einem ersten indischen Mittagsmahl fahren wir nach Alt-Dehli. Dort geht es auf Rikschas durch die engen Gassen und wir erhalten zum ersten Mal einen Eindruck von Indien. Und der schockiert mich zutiefst. Da sitze ich als übergewichtiger Mitteleuropäer hinter einem erschreckend dünnen Inder der meine Wenigkeit kutschieren muss. Um mich herum: Armut, Elend, Dreck. Ich fühle mich wie ein Fremdkörper, werde mir bewusst was es heißt in einem Dritte-Welt-Land unterwegs zu sein. Alt-Dehli ist voll, laut und nicht kanalisiert. Eben steht man noch neben einem Gewürzladen, einen Schritt weiter saugt die Nase den Kanal ein. Ich bin froh als es wieder ins Hotel geht. Morgen geht es nach Srinagar, weg von Delhi und hin zum Fuß des Himalayas. Nochmal kurz mit der Heimat telefoniert, ich ahne noch nicht wie lange es dauern wird mit den Lieben wieder zu sprechen.
02 Alt Delhi 01

Srinagar – von Hausbooten, schwimmenden Basaren und endlich auch Enfields

Nach einem einstündigen Flug landen wir in Srinagar, einer Stadt weit im Norden Indiens auf immerhin 1.730 Metern und mit einer Einwohnerzahl von ca. 1,2 Millionen. Hier werden wir 2 Nächte verbringen und zwar auf Hausbooten. Die Gruppe verteilt sich auf insgesamt 3 Hausboote, jedes wird individuell bewirtschaftet. Wir sind mit 6 Personen auf dem kleinsten untergebracht. Da ich Frank mit meiner Schnarcherei um den Schlaf gebracht habe, teile ich mir ab sofort mit Olaf das Zimmer. Der hat körperlich ähnliche Ausmaße wie ich, ist aber noch einen Kopf größer und schnarcht ebenfalls. Frank geht mit Uli aufs Zimmer, Basti und Chris machen die Runde komplett. Den Rest des Tages verbringen wir viel Zeit miteinander, schlürfen so manches Kingfisher (die örtliche und einzig erhältliche Biermarke) und lernen einander kennen. Die Temperaturen sind angenehm, wir werden von unserer Bootsküche hervorragend bekocht. Während wir auf der Terrasse sitzen, kommen immer wieder Kähne mit fahrenden Händlern an. Der eine hat Früchte, der andere Chips und Snacks, ein weiterer bietet Seidentücher an, alle sehr hartnäckig. Da wir die Biervorräte unseres Hausbootes bereits geplündert haben, kaufen wir welches vom schwimmenden Basar.
03 Srinagar Hausboote 02
Am nächsten Morgen statten wir Srinagar einen Besuch ab. Die Stadt ist sehr alt und hat eine durchaus erwähnenswerte Vergangenheit. Allerdings liegt diese eine ganze Zeit zurück und was damals prächtig und sehenswert war, ist heute dem Verfall preisgegeben. Wir gehen durch enge Gassen, die Geschäfte sind streng angeordnet. Hier nur Holzverarbeitung, dann Textilien, Gewürz- und Gemüseläden, alles ist nach Zunft organisiert. Als wir bei den Metzgereien vorbei kommen, bin ich froh ein Teilzeitvegetarier zu sein. Es existiert keine Kühlung, das Fleisch wird auf offener Straße verarbeitet. Mahlzeit. So mancher entscheidet sich jetzt ebenfalls auf Fleisch zu verzichten. Zwar ist hier deutlich weniger los als in Delhi und die Menschen machen einen wesentlich entspannteren Eindruck. Aber die Stadt bietet denn noch einen ähnlich bedrückenden Anblick. Alles ist verfallen, der Dreck auch hier gegenwärtig und die im Rinnsal schwimmenden Schokoriegel sind halt keine.
04 Srinagar 04
Nachmittags ist es dann soweit. Wir nehmen unsere Motorräder in Empfang: Royal Enfield Bullet 500 – das mächtigste was der indische Motorradmarkt zu bieten hat. Echte Oldtimer, auch wenn sie nagelneu sind. Luftgekühlte Einzylinder mit 500 Kubik und überschaubaren 26 Pferden, manche mit Einspritzung, manche mit Vergasern. Wir drehen eine Runde rund um den See, machen uns mit der Enfield und vor allem dem indischen Verkehr vertraut. Auch wir hupen, denn dies dient dem Hinweis dass man ebenfalls auf der Straße unterwegs ist und einen die anderen Verkehrsteilnehmer wahrnehmen. Ungewohnt, aber es funktioniert tatsächlich. Die Performance des Motors und der Bremsen sind überschaubar, erfüllen damit den Anspruch an ABS und Traktionskontrolle ohne welche zu haben. Das Fahrwerk ist komfortabel gefedert und im Grunde kaum gedämpft. Mit einer Enfield zu Hause eine spaßige Runde auf der Hausstrecke? Never. Aber hier das beste Motorrad der Welt. Wieso erklärt sich im Laufe der Reise. Wir stellen die Enfields nach ca. 2 Stunden ab, jetzt kribbelt es doch in der Magengegend, morgen geht es auf die erste Etappe unseres Trips.

'Rugged grandeur and austere beauty' -Indian Himalayas.

 Pangi is stunning in its rugged grandeur and austere beauty located in the northern Indian state of Himachal Pradesh in the lower range of Dhauladhar Himalayan ranges. The scenery of high Himalayan green pasture is sublime and imposing and nature appears in her wildest and grandest moods. Everything is on a stupendous scale. The great river rolls along in a deep and narrow gorge, lashing itself into fury, sandwiched between adamant cliffs that confine it. Precipices spring from the brink in places almost perpendicular to a height of 1,000 to 2,000 feet. 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.By Dr. J. Hutchinson. 

Want to spend nights under millions stars, while resting heads in middle of nowhere in the Himalayas, if you are board of riding the regular Indian roads and want to take your Royal Enfield to the worse of road conditions and ride the extreme gravels, than that might be "Pangi Valley".
we have been riding there since last couple of years, particularly in Autumn as the Summer and Monsoon seasons would be foggy and rain causes the landslides and road can remain blocked many days, therefore to avoid this hassle. Autumn is best to ride there.  

Road condition gets worse after Udaipur town, sky touching mountains are cut through to connect the remotest villages of the Himalayas with road. One side is sheer drop to the ragging white water river Çhandra-Baga whilst one side is the tallest mountain of Himalayas. There isn't much on the way, therefore camping is the best option to spend overnights while ventureing Pangi. 



On our guided motorcycle trip, we are followed by our back-up Van crew, they ensure to fix up any breakdowns and carry all our camping gears and food. We light camp fire every night and share booze while our kitchen crews ensure a five stars meal, every night you will have a new story to tell. 

This ride through pristine Pangi valley commence right from Manali and ride roll through Lahul valley while negotiating zigzagging Rohtang pass road plunge into Pangi. Riding the most thrilling roads up to Sach pass and stunning lush green Chamba valley will absolutely leave you speechless. Endless winding roads compose endless memories and a camaraderie on adventure for lifetime.

Trans-himalayan "Roof of the world" Ride.

The land is so barren, the mountain passes are so high, only the best of friends or the fiercest enemies would visit us. Ladakhi prverb.

So true, this ride between Manali-Leh is one of the most visited routes in Indian Himalayas, this great adventure commence from Manali, located in northern India. Road between Manali-Leh was built during 60s, its just hard to imagine the road conditions on the high mountains passes, and what astonish most is the road labors working at the elevation of 5,000meters to maintain the road.   Road to Ladakh itself is an adventure and riding motorcycle to reach there is a hard-work too, riding through five high passes and rough roads, the hue of high snow-capped mountain passes and overnight in the camps in middle of nowhere next to turquoise clear crystal clear water Lakes will be a mind-blowing experience.

A solo ride may be the right choice but if you want to have an hassle free motorcycle experience, than joining a group would be the wise decision, you will be riding in middle of nowhere, as you gain the altitude the oxygen level drops down and you will struggle to breath, altitude sickness is something that you need to watch out.

The arid landscapes and high pastures are home for Himalayan fauna, riding through the ancient Tibetan nomadic settlements while visiting Buddhist monasteries will be indeed an unique experience to have on this epic adventure. Tackling outrageous roads which challenges your zest for adventure will definitely be accomplished with this adventure.
This legendary road was once the bartering trail among Tibetan and Indian traders, Leh town was the halt of "Silk route caravan"while traveling from China to across Asia. Various facial  features of local inhabitants describes the history of silk route era. 

while venturing on Manali- Leh road, don't expect luxury rather prepare yourself  for harsh climate and living conditions. There isn't much up there on the way. Everything you will see on the road is temporary settled for 4/5 months of tourist season. Tents are clean with attached toilet but you will still want to use your personal sleeping bag for your own comfort.  This ride checks your patience in every ways. You will wonder sometime what most of the riders do, "why I m here" and you won't find the answer until you are not back home and will rest your head on your old pillow!!

Into The Thin Air

Riding in the shadow of 8,000meters high mountains is no more a dream, we just got back after two weeks ride from Nepal. Where we've been riding around Annapurna mountains and we took less traveled tracks  through some of the most impressive sights of high Himalayan settlements. we spent few days sightseeing the monuments around Kathmandu and two days at Pokhra. The real thrill of our Nepal adventure lies up in the high mountainous roads. Where we ride all gravels and hairpins on Royal Enfield bullet 500cc.

waking up next to a giant snow-capped mountain in the wild Himalayas and riding in their shadows is something common on this adventure, morning and evening can be a bit chilly and during the night temperature drops down to minus, the weather condition changes faster than the eye blink. Therefore an appropriate riding gear is must to pack on your traveling bag. 

One must have off road skills before you come on this adventure with us, sometime there is no road where we ride, we just follow the tracks of big trucks and local buses.

Every single curve offers a stunning view and you would be probably stopping after every 10 minutes to capture these wonderful moments on ride. People you will come across in the small villages are amazing and very generous toward the tourist. It can be fun to stop by the villages and handover some candies to the kids.  

Lower regions of Nepal are lush green while higher regions are arid and semi-arid, varies as per the altitude. highest we ride on our Nepal adventure is 3,500meters.  

 We fly in and out from/to Kathmandu. This is an amazing two weeks adventure through some of the highlights of Nepal, riding from the plain of Thari to the highest region of Mustang. we run two rides there every year, from 1st March to 15th and 1st November to 15th November.
if you are keen to experience Nepal on motorcycle, come with us, or you can even join one of our fixed departure dates, if you are traveling with friends and have a set date to travel with can tailor your tour for you as well. Drop us an email for any further information

Spiti Valley Adventure.

Spiti valley is located at the elevation of 3,500meters in the northern India on Indo-Tibet frontier, this tiny Tibetan nomadic settlement is the most remotest yet authentic Buddhist land in the heart of mighty Himalayas.
Thousand years old Buddhist monasteries and lunar landscape rugged valley and white washed Stupas (Buddhist Shrines) are the most fascinating sights in Spiti valley.

  •  Spiti valley is one of the most less traveled regions on Indian sub-continent. Just like the road between Manali-Leh, it's open for 5 months of the year. Its not advised to travel there during the rain as the loose terrain keeps sliding and causes sometimes major landslides. Any riders heading to venture Spiti valley must acquire off-road skill.  

  • The high pastures of Spiti and Lahul are the home for Himalayan Shepherds, on your ride they may cause the heavy traffic.

  • We are heading back to ride Spiti valley in November with an Italian team. we have got 7 riders on board and expecting few more riders on board. get in touch with us on and we will send you the details.
