Here in Nepal, you can traverse from the high Himalayas to the lowlands in a single day. The majority of riding tracks are off-road with rugged, muddy, and winding tracks, making them more adventurous for motorbike riders. 

Every turn of our 13 days Nepal Motorcycle Tour will take you past breathtaking views of the Himalayas. You will have the opportunity to participate in unique cultural events, meet locals, and experience their lifestyle and cuisine.

It also takes you to a wide diversity of landscapes and civilizations where amazing scenery and wilderness of nature are available. There is simply nothing better than riding a motorcycle in Nepal as you journey from village to village past rice fields and into the stunning core of the culture.

The journey displays the finest of Nepal in a reasonable amount of time, providing riders with a fantastic Royal Enfield riding experience. The tour is primarily on paved roads and is recommended for intermediate riders. It is a gentler ride than some of our other tours, so it's ideal for those who prefer to kick back and listen to the single-cylinder thump while riding.

This is the ideal journey for individuals interested in exploring the confluence of tradition and modernism in the Himalayas.

Feel the thrill of knowing that the day ahead will be jam-packed with fresh adventures, new foods, new people, new stories to share, along with lifetime memories.
