    Default Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey 2011

    Its back - the biggest, the toughest, the highest and the most fun-filled ride above sea level, now in its eighth edition.



    Keeping in line with the tradition of promoting leisure and adventure motorcycling culture across the country, Royal Enfield brings the Himalayan Odyssey 2011, a trip of adventure riding across the rugged and treacherous landscapes of the Himalayas including a ride to the legendary Khardung La pass.




    Ladakh literally means the Land of the Passes. This Holy Grail of motorcycling roads famed world-wide will take you through three mountain ranges, and many passes to a dizzying 18,380 feet high at Khardung La and a 40-km off-road ride through a high altitude desert at the Mor Plains. Rich in natural beauty, the landscape in its silence, emptiness and unbelievable vastness is breathtaking. As it enters its 8th edition of successful running, the annual tradition of the Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey today has proved itself to be revered as a ritual of ultimate adventurous motorcycling.

    This ride has always been considered as an exalting pilgrimage to the Mecca of endurance motorcycling, the mighty Himalayas, Ladakh region in particular. It is this ride from Delhi to Ladakh and back that Royal Enfield Riders undertake every year which is often considered as an achievement by many a motorcyclist. The bikers who choose to embark on this adventure trip are not just guided to understand the perils of rough weather, rugged terrain laden with gravel and boulders but also taught how to make use of their understanding and negotiate and tame this difficult and treacherous route.

    It is this ability that the riders develop during the course of the ride that makes these able bodied men (and women) ride on together, Covering each sector of this extraordinary adventure with panache and confidence.

    Josh, AFAIK - They dont provide you with the bikes. How ever, You can reach Delhi few days earlier and rent a bike from Delhi (Karol Bagh & the likes) - But IMHO, why not plan and ride yourself? Your R15 is more than sufficient for the Leh circuit.. Good Luck!

    Hi Josh,

    I just wanted to share an info that 2 of my brothers rode their R 15's from Delhi to Leh last year. (The bikes were initially sent through train from Chennai)
    Their bikes performed very well under the tough conditions & their ride was hassle free... The road grip was also awesome while cornering in hair pin bends

    They came back with amazing videos & photos of scenic beauty... So go on with your R 15...

    Happy Touring buddy
