What an incredible journey, a genuine adventure in the highlands of the Himalayas. Navigating through breathtaking landscapes where rugged mountains meet lush oases and sparkling emerald lakes. Tackling challenging roads as you transition into the Eastern world, this trip is a paradise for those who crave winding roads. It's not tailored for Harley cruisers but for those who are ready to get down and dirty, facing the true challenges of switchbacks, road works, gravel paths, water crossings, and immersing themselves in local traffic. Halting in remote spots for a chai tea break allows you to soak in the scenery. Indian Rides orchestrates an epic journey, well-organized with ample time to absorb the local atmosphere in the demanding high-altitude environment. Perfect for fostering team bonding among friends, with plenty of laughter along the way.

Indian Rides is a great company. I booked the Trans Himalayas tour and was pleasantly surprised. The tour went smoothly and a solution was found immediately for small problems. I have had different experiences with other travel agencies! I can recommend the tours without a guilty conscience. Very soon I will start my third tour with Indian Rides!

The Best Valued and fully guided motorcycle Tour we had with Indian Rides to Trans-Himlayan belt of India where we not only explored the rugged beauty but different monasteries and eye catching landscapes. IR is a top-notch organization, with an extraordinary motorcycle experience, magnificent hotels, and a very competent guide. The follow up car, drove us wherever we needed to go once we were off the bike and brought all the luggage.
Frankly want to go on a trip with them again and again!
