Ladakh Mountain Tour Map

When you plan a motorcycle tour in the Himalayas, the unpredictable is always there, in fact it enhances the adventure. Having said that, sometimes the unpredictable might turn bad and that is when being prepared and having a trusty team behind you can turn the worst situation around.

We specialise in paying attention to the finer details on every tour and with our golden route for this season want to take you to the most remarkable and hidden spots of Ladakh with our training and support. Our mountain tour is created to let the group enjoy the adrenaline of the riding to the max,without having to worry so much about those practical things because we have your back.


Let’s start with the incredible feeling of switching off from your everyday life for 14 days! Holding on tight to the handlebars of a 500cc Royal Enfield, you travel into a land that is hard to describe. Only after a while on the road do you realize where you are, what you’ve left behind and the crazy things you are embarking on. Your life is transformed and you start to believe the unbelievable as it passes in front of your eyes.

Leaving from the green mountains of the Kangra Valley in Dharamsala, our route takes the road to the holy lake of Tso Pema and its charming town. After this, the North is our destination and we reach Manali, by which time you will be confident and warm enough for what is next. Now everything becomes harder and more amazing.

We descend then ascend, a day’s rest will take place in the small village of Jispa.

A face in the countryside of Nepal

By: Omar Londono_MG_5705Taking the road on a bike means that you are probably going to a certain known destination but it also means travelling through the unknown. On a journey of 3000Kms from the desert in Rajasthan to the mountains in Nepal many faces appear to you and some of them are particularly attractive. I was crossing west Nepal, imagine the scenario: green fields, mud houses, colourful people and smiles by the side of a long flat road that crossed jungles, blue rivers, endless fields and ended up in the powerful mountains of the Himalayas. I had to stop due to some issues with the chain cover, and soon two local guys saw me on the side of the road trying to fix it.  They offered me help and we ended up having some lunch together.  They then took me to a beautiful lake only a few metres away from the road in the area which I would have missed had I not stopped to fix the bike. I became their guest, they invited me to spend the night in their farm house, I met their families and had a good time with them. Talking to the elders was a matter of using gestures and body language – well I can’t speak Nepali yet! Smiling, pointing, and saying random words I learnt was enough to make some kind of brotherly bond, get close to them and they to me. The lady in the photo is the grandma. On her face the lines of a life, the story of a family, and the pride of a land. Her family made her laugh while I took the shots and I realized she wanted to smile at my lense but at the same time hide those missing teeth the years had taken away from her. Isn’t she lovely?


A Face at the Fort Gate

Every face has a story.

A story etched on the palette that is the face.

Catching a glimpse of a face may not unveil that story.

But it’s the beginning; a spark to light the fire of imagination.

Rajasthani Portrait

A face from the desert in Rajasthan. From the indigenous gypsy communities that have dwelled there for centuries.

A face that shines in contrast to the dusty, sandy backdrop of Jaisalmer.

A face with an open heart.

An artisan face that makes traditional jewellery, and whose husband makes Rajasthani Ravalahara (violin).

A mother’s face, reflective of her children’s happiness.
