Georgia, Travel designer

An intrepid all-rounder, she has cruised India’s roads with many groups, and knows the country like the back of her leather-gloved hand.

Do you dream of mountain peaks and vast natural spaces ? This adventure is not reserved for weathered bikers seeking stony trails. For a first experience of Tibetan Buddhist culture, riding through jaw-dropping landscapes, this motorcycle tour is an excellent introduction to the Ladakhi world. Gradually acclimatise as you ride right along the Indus Valley from Leh to Lamayuru, with stopovers in the region’s finest hotels. Be shaken and stirred on your Royal Enfield, on the most beguiling Himalayan roads.

The riders' opinions

Best trip. Ever.

“Excellent, almost effortless trip. We were looked after well. The route was a wonderful combination of easy riding and modest challenge. The staff was tolerant beyond any reasonable human's capacity. Lodgings both exotic and comfortable. A better trip can not be imagined.”

I would recommend Vintage Rides to any …

“I would recommend Vintage Rides to any rider contemplating a guided motorcycle tour. Right from my initial email with Denise, the professionalism and attention to detail was reassuring. Everything was organised for us and our tour guide Josh was fantastic from start to finish. The Royal Enfields were a lot of fun and suited the type of riding we did, the scenery was simply mind blowing and the tour was the best holiday and adventure ever. On top of all this, the value for money was excellent. I will be touring with Vintage Rides again. I did the Trans Himalayan in India.”

Johnny, Newbury (UK)
Excellent organisation

“Excellent organisation. I found everybody that I dealt with to be very professional and most helpful, both at the planning stage and during the trip. I'd definitely recommend Vintage, and will undoubtedly use them for any future trips I'm able to undertake.”
