Starting From Heart



Extreme Himalayan Motorcycle Tour

Ladakh the last frontier is a Motorcyclist dream come true, with vast open plains, majestic mountains, pristine lakes and a mix of hard top and gravel roads a land for a true motorcycle adventure.

Ladakh is the most remote region of India, a barren, virtually rainless area. Ladakh beckons for more than one reason. The defiance of its barren landscape, its unique flora and fauna, its culture, its clear blue skies and clean air, the land where snow never melts and only corn ripens, has more to offer than a good holiday. It is a life time dream for many to visit Ladakh yet only a few are able to make this dream journey
