Hopping regularly between Paris and Delhi, our livewire recharges his batteries from time to time on the roads of India and Nepal.

Climb aboard your Royal Enfield for a 465 miles cruise through the Kathmandu Valley, the Himalayan foothills, and the wild Terai jungle. Admire the eternal beauty of the Annapurna mountains, and take time to understand Nepalese culture, a mix of Hinduism and Buddhism. The diverse itinerary covers Unesco World Heritage listed temples, Chitwan National Park, and then Pokhara, with its mesmerising panoramic view of the Himalayas. This motorbike trip in Nepal, a moving and thought-provoking experience, will take you from village to village, through paddy fields, to connect with the incredibly cheerful and welcoming people of Nepal. Not forgetting mythical Kathmandu: a heaving, fascinating, unique mixture of traditions and the modern age.

D2 / Patan - Daman - 37 miles

Your first day in the saddle. We head southwest from Katmandu and start to fully savour the rural environment. For an easy start, a very pretty little stage in the Nepalese countryside, to lap up the mountain scenery.

D3 / Daman - Chitwan - 78 miles

Back on the westward road for a gorgeous stage. A change of scenery: you're now cruising on the plain, to the region of Terai, the "grain basket" of Nepal. In the afternoon, a walk in the jungle of Chitwan National Park, where the abundant flora and fauna contrast with the mountainous landscapes of the Himalaya.

D4 / Chitwan

In the morning, an elephant-back ride to soak up this luxuriant vegetation. In the afternoon, we'll venture into the hostile jungle, searching for Asian crocodiles; then board a boat on the Narayani River to observe them in their natural habitat.

D5 / Chitwan - Tansen - 108 miles

We leave the jungle and head for Tansen, in the mountains further west. We visit this little town, well away from mass tourism. After this long stage, its small quiet streets and surrounding countryside are pleasantly restful.

A long and beautiful day on the road takes us towards Katmandu. Our route, along the Trisuli River, is dotted with diverse encounters, amid varied landscapes: rice fields, pine forests and arresting gorges. We stop for lunch in the delightful village of Bandipur before continuing to Nuwakot.

D10 / Kathmandu

Free time in Kathmandu. You could visit the stupa of Bodnath or the religious site of Pashupatinath. Take a stroll through the tiny streets to discover the city's remarkable cultural and artistic heritage: hidden temples decorated in garlands of marigolds, courtyards where chili peppers and rice lay drying; and tiny workshops.

The riders' opinions

Christopher Ingles
Mustang .... just do it !

“This is my second trip with Vintage Rides and it was just as good as the first. ( I have even booked a third, so that's three within the year!). If your a rider that likes adventure and off-road riding, then Mustang is the journey for you. Be prepared to be pushed to the limits and also meet a good bunch of fellow adventure riders.”

David Corbett
i did the nepal mustang trip in …

“i did the nepal mustang trip in november with my son, a small amount of offroading skills is required. He had only passed his test 3months earlier and had gone a couple of off roading sessions and coped well. The weather was good that time of year, no rain and warm. the tour was better than i'd ever expected with a number of surprises along route. most accommodation was of good standard with some of very good 'the wife could spend a week here' standard. the bikes worked better than i'd expected, not ktm standard but you wouldnt want to be on a ktm allday, and half the appeal was the enfield. i would recommend this trip, so much so i am looking presently to book another trip with vintages rides.”

We were a bunch of mates from Norwich …

“We were a bunch of mates from Norwich in the UK looking for something different on bikes. We decided to email 2 company's, Vintage rides and another Aussie outfit based in Nepal. Both company's provided a detailed route in the Mustang Valley in Nepal. The Aussie company was slightly cheaper but the bikes looked older and most importantly sending 20,000 euro's abroad to either company did not appeal to me! However Vintage rides payments are covered via our version of ABTA. The Aussie company payments were not. Easy choice for us. We arrived in Nepal to be greated by the coolest dude at the airport in leather jacket, ciggy in one hand , his name Francois. I can go on and bang on about what an experience the ride was which it was but if you are looking for a company to to have the ride of your life then Vintage rides is at the top of the game. All hotels were fantastic, we bumped into another British company half way up the Mustang valley and I have to say I was glad I had booked Vintage rides. The bike the Britsh had were all sorts of old Royal Enfields and the hotel they were in looked terrible, even the Britsh tour t-shirts they were wearing looked like they were from pound land ! Francois our gide put up with 8 middle aged blokes on a 12 day bender! One hotel we drunk dry !! Brexit was mentioned once or twice but we all decided the French are not so bad after all they can drink as well !! Francois new exactly where to take us ,he has done these trips most of his life. The support crew were 10 mins behind us all the time to fix puncures and fix bikes. Vintage rides is a company that know's what it is doiing and I would have no hesitation in booking another trip (Mongolia) again. A big thankyou to Francois and Denise for organising such a great trip. Roll on next year we are booking again. Doddy.”
