2200 kms. Upwards of 18000 feet. An idolized mountain range. A rider's rite of passage. Here is a glimpse of what the Himalayan Odyssey is all about.

Braving the roads in the Himalayas

The waterfall was not meant to be, its existence an anomaly no one could explain. Our guides insisted that it was not there last year. But it was flowing down a hill now, and across my path, magnificent in its ferocity unlike the many water crossings I had encountered earlier in the route since leaving Kaza in the Spiti Valley of Himachal Pradesh. I was among the 58 bikers trying to reach the Himachal village of Jispa in the Himalayas, where the terrain always seemed to be changing. Having left the nearest village far behind, we could not turn back.

The first rider accelerated his bike—hands off the clutch and brake, a prayer on his lips—and made the crossing. A few others followed with some difficulty. Under the unusually warm afternoon sun, the mountain ice was melting faster than ever; the force of the water flow was increasing with every passing minute. As it rushed and swirled past my bike, I could see this water body that was not meant to be dislodge football-sized rocks from its path.

It was impossible to map a safe route. Many bikers found themselves stuck between massive rocks and had to be pushed by fellow riders who had no alternative to standing knee-deep in freezing water. Some bikers fell, and a few were simply scared to cross to the other side. Four-and-a-half-hours later, the last motorcycle made the crossing even as darkness enveloped the Valley.

And then it rained.

For over 60 years, the Himalayas have been traversed by Royal Enfield riders, and today we have come to call Ladakh our spiritual home. To support these adventurous riders and explorers better, we are proud to open our first ever service centre at Leh & a service camp for riders at Jispa.
