            Ladakh is one of the most beautiful region in India. The raw beauty of this region is mesmarizing. In this Expedition we ride on motorbikes across most challenging route of the world. Total distance covered during this expedition is approx 2400Km. During this stretch we get to ride over 5 of worlds top 10 passes including Khardung which is highest pass of the world.This part of India is more appreciated by non-Indians than Indians which is a sad truth. Let change this situation and experience the raw nature of Ladakh.
Some people think that you require Royal Enfield or very high engine capacity motorbikes to participate which is not the truth. Any vehicle of Engine capacity 125cc and above are eligible to participate in this expedition. Right from Discover, Victor, Unicorn, Hunk to Karizma, CBZ, Apache, Royal Enfield can enjoy the ride over these mountains. Of course it is very essential to practice long rides before participating in this event.
              We takes you to this Motorbike trek in such a way that it becomes lifetime experience for everyone. We organise this event with the backing of extensive experience. The acclimatization halts, buffer days etc. are planned base on experience in such a way that the trek becomes success without any health trouble. Also we arrange a standby vehicle during the critical path of Leh to Manali for helping out during breakdowns.
