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 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! Stony passages and fords are however inevitable. Grand view and small villages are part of the program of this unforgettable last motorcycle day.

The riders' opinions

Vintage Rides - Simply the Best.

“Having joined two tours in India previously with Vintage Rides I have no hesitation in booking a third and recommending this company as experts in their field to anyone contemplating a guided tour on the sub continent or the far east. Vintage Rides is a French company and as expected many of the riders are French speakers but it is not a barrier. I speak English and have only a little of the French language but I have been welcomed by both the tour leaders and the other riders without any problems at all. Communication is not a problem in the brotherhood off the bikers. The tour leaders know their stuff and take you to places off the well beaten tourist track, always mindful of one's safety. The support team for mechanical issues that can occasionally arise with the robust Royal Enfield 500cc Bullet bikes and for transport of luggage and local knowledge remove any concerns, just sit back and enjoy the ride.”

A wonderful and memorable experience

“A wonderful and memorable experience. The 12 day tour that my wife (pillion) and I went on in Madhya Pradesh was very well planned, with interesting and sometimes challenging rides and sight-seeing during the day and comfortable, culturally fascinating places to stay in at night. Our tour leader was experienced, organised, had a fun personality and managed to respond to each member of the tour as an individual. We highly recommend Vintage Rides to anyone with a sense of adventure and competent motorcycle skills. Laurie and Jennie McAdam”

Well organized

“Well organized, excellent tour lead with support crew.”
