Roof of India
I’ve been riding in the Himalayas for many years and have ridden all the regular routes. They have become over crowded, commercialised and don’t feel like that much of a challenge any more. I’m sure that’s not what you’re looking for. This after all, for most people, is a once in a lifetime thing. It needs to be unique and exciting.
A new route was required, something that offered more. Here it is, our very own creation, The Roof Of India.
This is by far the most comprehensive and exciting motorcycle tour you can have in the Himalayas. Nothing else comes close.
It has absolutely everything.
We take a route that only recently opened after years of digging and hacking through the mountains.
Along the way we explore high altitude desert, forested trails, glacier gouged gorges, lunar like valleys and ascend mountain peaks and passes at over 5kms high. Where we stay, where we ride and what we see is utterly breathtaking.
Awesome, life changing, inspiring, scary, immense, humbling, mind blowing and challenging. These are just some of the words that have been used by riders who have ridden the Himalayas with us over the years.
Deep into the Kashmir Valley, we tackle the ominous ‘Cliffhanger’. These are rough mountain tracks hewn into the side of vertical cliffs. Maybe you’ve never thought of riding through a waterfall before, I hadn’t either. This could be one of the most daunting and memorable things you ever do in your life. It’s not a ride for the faint hearted. It will push you, your motorcycle, your riding skills and endurance to the limit. It’s worth it though as the rewards are huge. You’ll feel immense satisfaction as you bed down each night.
This is more than just a motorcycle trip in India.
It’s two weeks of being around like minded people, laughing a lot, making new friends, forgetting about the rest of the world for a little while and taking each day as it comes. What are you waiting for?
I’ll be riding with you all the way.

THE BANTER (SCMC)
The North East of India is one of the least explored places left on the planet. Mac Macdonald and his friends rode India’s Lost World with Nomadic Knights in 2018 and had one of the best experiences of their lives. It was so good, they wrote about it.
