Our Signature motorbike tour is specially designed for people who want to see the beauty of Leh – Ladakh at a relaxed pace over a period of two (2) weeks.

Like all our other tours, we start and end in Naggar (Manali).
For people who are coming from outside India, you are required to be in New Delhi,
atleast two (2) days prior to the departure of your tour, so that you can land in Naggar (Manali) in time for your scheduled tour departure.

You may choose to go on either one of our fixed departure dates starting 1st week June every summer if you are an individual.

However, if you are group of eight (8) or more friends then we can do a customized tour for you as well, the dates for which can be at your convenience.

the-dream-ride-15This is the most well researched itinerary that we have chosen through our several trips to Ladakh over the last 12+ years, but we don’t mind changing or tweaking it a bit at your convenience if needed.

We can help you in arranging a reliable logistics services company (GATI KWE) to pick up your motorbike from anywhere in India and delivering it to your doorstep safely.

If you want a motorbike on rent then please inform us separately, we will help you in arranging a good quality reliable motorbike from one of our trusted vendors.

the-dream-ride-03If you have your own motorbike then it’s recommended to courier it to Kullu/ Manali using the logistics services company (GATI KWE), they take about 12 - 14 days to ship from almost anywhere in India.

You can either ride single or have your partner as pillion. She also has a choice to hop on/ off between your motorbike and the SUV for added comfort.

We mostly run mixed tours – SUV’s and motor-bikers go together.
