This was my time time in India and on a Royal Enfield Motorcycle. Narendra has put together an unforgettable adventure and a well planned challenge to the seasoned rider. His planning includes periods for staged altitude acclimatization, expected travel time, availability of accommodation and reduced traffic density. I cannot thank Narendra, Ram and Armar enough for providing us a fabulous journey, good company and amazing memories of one of the most breathtaking areas in the world.
