The terrain we will pass through in this trip is primitive, mountainous and delightful. We move from Manali, Keylong, Trilokinath through Sach Pass, Dharamshala and back to Manali. These places will not only bring you close to nature but also to yourself. In fact we will pass through meadows and glaciers to reach Chamba from where we will head to the sweet city of Dharmshala and back to Manali.
We will come to pick you up at the Kullu Airport or at the bus station and drive you to your hotel. Our representatives will be there to provide you with all the services and soon you’ll be introduced to the bikes and the Team who will give you all the details about the tour. Be ready to ride, explore, discover while learning how to survive in Himalayas! GoPro Cameras on helmets, riding gears, Royal Enfield Bikes, let’s start riding around Manali valley!
On that day, we’ll start riding towards Keylong, traveling over the Rohtang pass which reaches an altitude of 4050m and from where you can see the snow white peaks of Lahaul Mountains that contrast with fluttering Buddhist prayer flags. The pass provides a natural divide between the sub-humid/humid Kullu Valley with a primarily Hindu culture (in the south), and the arid/semi-arid high altitude Lahaul and Spiti valleys with a Buddhist culture (in the north). From there, we follow our route towards Keylong. Situated at an altitude of 3440 m, Keylong is the headquarters of Lahaul and Spiti district of Himachal Pradesh and the most populated place of that region. The region is strange, exciting, primitive, mountainous and delightful. Among the white and brown mountains, Keylong stands out as an oasis of greenery in the district. Lahaul and Spiti have hardly changed with time. People still live the way they used to live and strongly believe in conserving nature. Valley, river, mountains and the green landscape makes Keylong an exciting picturesque destination for bikers and apart from its amazing landscape, the vicinity of Keylong offers several places, temples, monasteries and bazaar which are worth visiting.
We take the road towards Urgos. On the way we’ll stop at Trilokinath famous for its temple are beautiful picturesque streets. 'Trilikonath' is one of the names of the Hindu god, Shiva, meaning the ‘Lord of the Three Worlds’, but local tradition clearly relates that it was originally a Buddhist Monastery, although nothing remains of the original building. After the visit, we hit the road again through the typical Lahauli countryside full of meadows and wild flower and reach our final destination of the day, Urgos, a charming village in the heartland of Lahaul.
Ride to Killer. On the way, a visit to Udaipur and its ancient temple, Marikula Mata temple, renowned for its wooden statues and sumptuous carvings, is planned. After the visit, we move towards Killar through the remote and rugged Pangi Valley, inhabited by Pangwal and Bhoti people, mostly Hindu.
Killar, 2591m altitude, is the administrative headquarters of the Pangi Valley. In comparison to other places in the valley, Killar is a small town buzzing with life. The matchbox shaped houses packed together on the green mountain ranges give a queer picture. A visit to Killar village and its surroundings is planned.
Killar- Sach pass- Chamba
Let’s go for an extreme ride on one of the most treacherous roads of Himachal Pradesh. 4400m above sea level, Sach Pass is a very important pass of Himachal Pradesh as it connects the tribal area of Pangi to the district headquaters of Chamba. There is a famous temple on at th peak of Sach Pass known as Jotta Wali Mata temple. After reaching the top, we start our descent to Chamba through a large meadow and glacier.
