Himalayan Classic Motorbike Tour

Ride the Enfield Bullet through the mighty Himalayan mountains of India and take in all the sights that this unique part of India has to offer. The Himalayas extend from Myanmar (Burma) in the east to Pakistan in the west and contains some of the most diverse scenery, cultures, religions and architecture to be found anywhere in the world.
 
This trip has been designed to include as much of this diversity as possible...from the old British Hill station of Simla...to the remote and beautiful Kulu valley which contains a mixture of Nepalese, Tibetan and Indians...to Dharamsala home of the Dalai Lama and many other exiled Tibetans.

An overnight trip to Agra to see the incomparable Taj Mahal and the abandoned Moghul city of Fatehpur Sikri is included.

DELHI - Capital of India and a mixture of Hindu, Muslim and British architecture. The city consists of 2 parts - Old Delhi which was the capital of Muslim India between the 12th and 19th centuries and New Delhi the imperial city created by the British.

SIMLA - ( Alt. 2130m/6990ft ) This hill station was the "Summer Capital" of India during the British rule of India. It sprawls along a crescent shaped ridge with many houses clinging to the slopes. Along the ridge runs the Mall which is lined with stately English homes, theatres, shops and fine buildings such as the Viceroy Lodge and Gordon castle.

BILASPUR - Picturesque town overlooking a beautiful lake with boating and swimming.

KULU - ( Alt. 1200m/3940ft ) This town stands at the beginning of the beautiful Kulu valley which is the gateway to Ladakh high up on the Tibetan plateau. The Kulu valley was isolated for centuries until the road was built. Its people are a colourful mixture of Nepalese, Tibetans and Indians. The rich soil, plentiful water supply and ideal climate provides perfect conditions for beautiful terraced rice paddies and a wide variety of fruit and vegetables.

MANALI - ( Alt. 1400m/4600ft ) The last town before the road winds its way up to the Tibetan plateau. A beautiful and vibrant town with spectacular scenery, temples and a wide variety of people. A great days ride up to the Rohtang Pass ( Alt. 4000m/13000ft ) which is the entrance to the Ladakh region.

REWALSAR - Small town with a beautiful lake surrounded by Buddhist and Hindu temples.

DHARAMSALA - ( Alt. 1500m/4950ft ) Home of the exiled Dalai Lama and many other Tibetans forced to flee from the Chinese. Tibetan monasteries, schools, libraries, shops, restaurants, cultural centres and refugee camps makes this area a mini Tibet. Magnificent views of the Himalayas in one direction and the plains of India the other.

CHANDIGARH - Capital of the Punjab and purposely built in the 1950's by the French architect Le Corbusier.

AGRA - It has a magnificent fort, a perfectly preserved but abandoned Moghul city called Fatehpur Sikri and one of the most famous buildings in the world - the Taj Mahal. The Taj Mahal was constructed by Emperor Shah Jahan in memory of his wife Mumtaz Mahal between 1632 and 1653. Although the Taj is amazingly graceful from almost any angle its the close up detail which is really astounding. Semi precious stones are inlaid into the marble in beautiful patterns and with superb craftmanship.
