Today marks the start of your adventure! We start off zigzagging small roads up to Ranikhet. We continue along a smooth, mountain road through pine forests and terraced fields until Almora.

We leave early for the small stone temple in Baijnath, near the Gomti river, where you will see the huge sacred trout swimming around. The locals describe this peaceful atmosphere as “shanti, shanti”. Then, we take a charming, small cliffside road along Pindar river, before continuing northwards to the small village Kund.

D5 / Kund - Chamba - 106 miles

We take a steep road along the Ganges, which is bumpy more often than not. Depending on the season, we may come across some difficult stretches. One thing is certain: your adrenaline will rise as we pass through dramatic landscapes featuring red sandstone mountain faces, waterfalls and pine forests. For the last few miles, we ride alongside the lake formed by Tehri dam, which offers sumptuous scenery.

D6 / Chamba - Mussoorie - 93 miles

We head off early to really make the most of our last day in the saddle. We take a superb mountain road through pine forests and terraced fields, with the snow-draped Himalayas as your backdrop. One last blast of fresh air before going back to the capital. We reach Mussoorie, India’s favourite hilltop honeymoon destination.

The riders' opinions

Daphne
Spiti Valley - Absolutely fantastic!

“Absolutely fantastic. The pre-trip organization and communication was stellar. The itinerary and accommodations were well planned and our guide, mechanic, and support driver collectively allowed for a trip where any risk of stress was quickly replaced with nothing but pure delight. I took the Spiti Valley tour ("Gateway to Tibet") which offered otherworldly views and rich cultural exposure. The remote area was particularly enjoyable as even when compared to other Himalayan routes there was very little traffic... truck or otherwise (The last thing I want to do is to go to a remote location to be stuck endlessly maneuvering around slow trucks). I sing the praises of Vintage Rides at every possible opportunity. I've ridden motorcycles all over the world either independently or with a tour group and this trip was tops! I wish I had sooner discovered Vintage Rides and they will certainly be my choice again. Vive la Moto! (If you like to see the video of the trip it is at advmotorbike dot com under "global moto"... it will say in image more than my words can convey!)”

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.”

GregoryEvans
Wonderful experience with great company

“My group of 12 friends had a wonderful experience riding in the Himalayas with Vintage Rides. From the fantastic Pierrey our tour guide to the work done by the backroom staff to ensure this unique experience went without a hitch, this a very experienced and highly recommended company to put your trust in for such a journey. Will definitely use them again at some time in the future - perhaps Mongolia.”
