Inclusions and Extras

All-Inclusive Himalayas motorcycle tour

You’ll be riding a classic 500cc Royal Enfield Bullet.
Because this tour is self-guided, you’ll need to fill up on your own. However, we will provide you with a full tank at the start of your tour.
A large support team will accompany the expedition, including guides, mechanics and drivers.
You’ll sleep in a variety of carefully chosen hotels, campsites and traditional homestays. As standard you’ll share a room, but you have the option to switch to single accommodation for an additional charge. The night in Delhi before the tour is also included.
On tour, you’ll be provided with breakfast and dinner each day. Lunch is not included on this tour, so you’ll be free to stop and eat wherever takes your fancy.
To save you the boring ride out of Delhi, you’ll take a VIP bus from there to Pinjore, where your motorcycle will be waiting for you. This allows you to start your ride already in the mountains!

Please note, though, that the flight from Leh, the last stop on the tour, back to Delhi is not included.
We’ll organise transportation for you from the airport to your hotel when you arrive in Delhi, as well as from your hotel to the airport when you’re flying out of India.
If your tour runs through areas that require permits or tickets for entry, such as national parks and border areas, these tickets are included in the cost of your tour.
As standard, while on tour you’ll be staying in shared accommodation with other riders in your group. If you prefer to have your own room, you can opt for single accommodation for an extra charge of $620.
