About the Tour:
Embark on an adventurous 9-day bike trip as you ride the powerful KTM 390 Adventure bike scaling the national highways that slither through the Himalayan mountains. Uncover the mystic charms of the astonishing Spiti Valley which is a fusion of lush green valleys coupled with cold and barren mountain deserts. The tour will help you to ride through some of the most challenging roads that are full of spell bounding views of the valleys and the majestic Himalayas.
Starting from Chandigarh, you’ll circle across the charming villages of Sarahan, Chitkul, Nako, Tabo and Kaza which reflect the fascinating blend of the Indo-Tibetan culture and then ultimately loop back to Chandigarh. Travelling through gorgeous landscapes you’ll be making various pit stops including the 1000-year-old Key Monastery, colour changing Chandratal Lake, highest motorable village – Komik and many others.
