Amongst this you will experience the worlds most amazing roads, The Kinnaur Valley, The Famous Buddhist alpine Desert, The Spiti Valley, Ladakh and Leh . The world highest and second highest mountain passes, disputed borders with China and Pakistan, Camp at the moon Lake.

Ride the Hindustan-Tibetan "Highway" east into the Spiti Valley. Visiting Kalpa and Nako on the Tibet border, well known as India's wildest and scariest road. Stop for a few nights at a rugged little hamlet high up in the Himalayas to hang with Buddhist monks.

Camp at Chandraa Taal, The Lake of the Moon and camp, well glamp, on the shore of a glacial pool among stunning snow peaks.

From Jispa/Sarchu we ride to Leh taking a trip out to Khardung La, the worlds highest motorable road.

Old Delhi - Our little guesthouse, tucked down a dark alleyway away from the craziness, is an oasis in what can only be described of as the carnage that is Old Delhi. Let us show you the real India, this is not a backpacker or tourist enclave and not for the faint hearted. Real in your face India at its best, you will grow to love this hidden little treasure, everyone does.

Eco Lodge Narkanda - Stay in cozy cabins perched high above the clouds looking down upon Shimla and the plains of India. This could well be switzerland apart from the amazing home cooked Dal Makarni, chapati and Indian sweets. You will never forget the amazing road to access the lodge.

The Kinnaur Valley - Surprisingly great quality tarred roads winding all day between 2000 and 3500 metres. Ride through lush alpine scenery under waterfalls that gradually change to harsh alpine desert as we approach the infamous Spiti Valley.

Spiti Valley - Google it! Amazing and breathtaking switchbacks as far as the eye can see and far futher than one could ever imagine. The Spiti is by far the most amazing place on this planet. River crossings, glaciers, sheer drops that will send shivers down your spine. Amazing buddhist culture and some of the most remote border villages on earth.

Leh, Ladakh. The road approaching Leh will have put an ear to ear grin on your dial. Tough, gruelling and exhausting but always breathtaking. Ride the two highest mountain passes on the planet, stroll through the handicraft markets of Leh.
