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 accessible to all bikers, not just 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 acclimatize 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.

D9 / Summor - Leh - 160 Km

We take a small road, asphalted on the whole, to pass by the Wari La, aerial pass at 5,300 meters of altitude and very little frequented. This, if climatic and geological conditions allow us!

The riders' opinions

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.”

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!)”

James Mc
July 2015 Himalayan Motobike tour

“An awesome adventure lead by a very capable and fun tour leader. A great mix of riding from bitumen to two wheel dirt tracks and a great mix of accommodation experiences from hotels, hostels to large tents. Price was genuinely reasonable and our mechanic was a wizard. I will most definitely do it again in a couple of years time when I get sick of just looking at the photos and video!”
