Delhi to Leh

A complete bucket-list motorcycle adventure for advanced riders

Riding your personal iconic British designed Royal Enfield motorcycle is unlike any other feeling,
when your high in the clouds in the Himalayas. A unique motorcycle adventure that takes you off the beaten track to explore some of the world's remotest regions. We first travelled here in 2009 with our very first rider's and we have been returning with our intrepid rider's every year since.

You will experience the best the Himalayas have to offer, riding with freedom to ride at your own pace. Nothing is rushed. Before you, stand high peaks and landscapes to take your breath away. All this before we reach Leh. We rest whilst our permits are processed to allow us ride to the top of the highest motorable road in the world, the Khardung La. From our vantage point; spectacular 360 views of the Himalayas. Next Nubra Valley. Working as part of a team, you'll be amazed at the challenges you accomplish.

Ross Drinkwater - England
Himalaya 1 - 2012
If you’re after a sedate convoy of 15 pensioners on bikes moving around the Himalayas (and far more expensive than ours, we did observe from other UK operators much to our amusement), then Pure bike Tours might not be for you. They specialise in looking after small groups, and our 2 weeks riding was fantastic. Sunil’s enthusiasm, local knowledge and dedicated support team made our trip a thoroughly enjoyable, challenging, and sociable trip, one which I won’t forget. I completely recommend them as the best means of exploring this wonderful part of the world and look forward to returning.
Martin and Lily - Sydney, Australia
Himalaya 1 - 2012
We are back in Oz. The trip is growing on us every day. I’m ready to go back and do it again!
Fantastic. Exceeded our expectations. Great value for money. The Enfield was great (thanks for the new one). Lily planned on riding 1 hour per day, but ended up riding everywhere (except the Rohtang Pass where she walked). Couldn’t imagine doing the trip without you and your support team. Full range of riding conditions: up, down and around, wet and dry, hard, rough and soft. I’m a much better rider now. Off the Enfield; we were well fed all the way. Loved the hotels in Manali and Mandi; and the luxury ensuite tent at Sarchu. The scenery and the people - amazing all the way. We are ready to go back and do it all again - with PBT of course. Thanks Sunil.
