Awesome, life-changing, inspiring, scary, immense, humbling, and mind-blowing is how many riders have described riding the Royal Enfield Himalayan motorcycle over the world’s highest roads and through the Himalayas, and until August 3, 2022,
Australian adrenaline lovers can save US$500 and tackle the once-in-a-lifetime ‘Roof of India’ tour themselves this September with motorcycle tour operator, Nomadic Knights.
The 14-night journey through the Indian Himalayas will see travellers ride cloud-piercing roads over 17,000ft high including the highest motorable road in the world over the 18,000ft -high Khardungla Pass – almost 2.5 times the height of Australia’s highest mountain, Mt Kosciuszko. The spectacular route will also take riders through high altitude deserts, pine forests, glacier-gouged gorges, and riding through a waterfall on the narrow, spine-tingling Cliffhanger track hewn from cliffs high above an icy river.
Staying in luxury Arabian-style tents with campfires, local hotels, and a special stay in traditional Kashmiri houseboats on Dal Lake, riders will meet monadic sheep herders and see everything from bustling cities to remote villages, lofty temples and vast wilderness areas harbouring wild snow leopards, bears, yak, and ibex.
The exciting journey begins in Chandigarh, India, on September 3, 2022, where riders are transported to Shimla to begin a 2100km ride through the Indian Himalayas along some of India’s loneliest and the world’s most spectacular roads.
The Roof of India tour includes traversing breathtaking roads such as the Rohtang Pass and through rarely visited territories such as Jammu and Kashmir. The tour ends with guests returning to Shimla before being transported back to Chandigarh to make their way home.
