UTTARAKHANDHIMANCHALLADDAKH
There is no certainty; there is only adventure.

                       .............  Welcome to your world 

Adventure and discovery with experiences’ lasting a lifetime – ride the high roads with Pure bike tours and journey to some incredible locations on our planet. Motorcycling on/off-road terrain and at altitudes that will leave you speechless – literally.






Riding Enfield on the most highest and spectacular road
of the world from Manali to Leh and beyond is a challenge. You will be climbing over five passes, among of them lowest pass is Rohtang pass (3950 m) and highest is khardungla (5540m)


During the expedition you will notice dramatic change of the climate, and culture which is separated by great Himalaya, As in its south are green valleys where Hinduism is flourished, and in North more arid and Tibetan Buddhism is practiced. During the expedition one can see the most exotic sight of Himalayas which will be a unforgettable experience also in terms of both skill and thrill.











Expeditions...
                               The Himalayas


All those who have ever travelled amongst these fascinating mountains, have left with an overwhelming feeling of wonder and inspiring as they are breathtaking – being in the presence of the Himalayas is enthralling. No words can ever justify the amazing experiences you take away and nothing quite prepares you for the fantastic sensation


the adventure..

Rugged – unyielding – wild and inhospitable. The Himalaya landscape evokes everything that is adventure. Traversing roads usually closed for up to eight months of the year because of heavy snowfall – the will to explore is irresistible. On these adventures, you ascend road passes in excess of 5000m – where landslides and rock-falls present challenges and where river crossings through snowmelt waters, set icicles forming on your biking gear.
Because you seize the moment – up here “fear” takes a back seat!

   

The bikes..


On all our Himalaya adventures, 

we use Royal Enfield 350/500cc Bullets. With its classic chassis and elegant looks, this in essence is classic British motorcycling from a bygone era. 2010 saw modification to more a Japanese tyle, but we prefer to give our riders left hand brake – right hand gearshift to experience.
