Touring the Himalayas

Postby Tashi Nima » Sat Dec 12, 2015 3:12 am

Hello motorheads,
This was an epic trip undertaken by 2 Brits 1 american and 1 Indian in October 2015. The map is attached to the ride report and here is the link to our video on youtube



This trip was was completed in 8 days and after approximately 1000km. The bikes used were Royal Enfield Classic 500cc. The trip took us through Mussoorie - Rishikesh - Rudraprayag - Joshimath - Deoria tal - Tehri - Gangotri - Mussoorie
All of these places have very interesting history. Rishikesh is one of the holiest cities on the Banks of rivers Ganges, Rudrprayag is where Jim Corbett shot the Man eating leopard in 1926 which claimed more than 175 lives, Joshimath is the base to Valley of Flowers, Tehri is where the highest earthen dam in Asia is situated, Gangotri is where the holy River Ganga Originates.

We plan to do a similar trip of 10 days in april 2016.

fly to Delhi. take a bus to Manali. There are hundreds of Enfields for rent in the foothills of the Himalayas. with your native english lang. very easy to travel in India. I see one problem for pensioners: there are not sidecars in India (I saw couple times in megapolis)

"Its never too late for a happy childhood"
was the first sticker on my 2013 Patrol when I showed my to that time 18 year old son a "few horizons".
A kid who never grew up has to know that fact.
:D Peter Pan :D

Next challenge: Back to the roots :oops: Few days and counting :roll: :lurker:
