SPITI MOTORCYCLE EXPEDITION 2019

SPITI MOTORCYCLE EXPEDITION 2019

January 23, 2019

The name “Spiti” means “The Middle Land”, i.e. the land between Tibet and India. Spiti Valley is a cold desert mountain valley located high in the north-eastern part of the Himachal Pradesh. This adventure takes on board hazards such as landslides, snow-melt waters, desert sands, and glacial movements. The mighty Himalayas with its wilderness and barren landscapes will eclipse anything you might have ridden through before or ever imagined of in your wildest dreams.

It is a world where every rider desires to step in while riding his beloved motorcycle. We guarantee these journeys will definitely leave a remarkable impression on you.

 

Your Responsibility:

You participate with HMC knowingly as a competent rider and do so entirely at your own risk. Understanding that motorcycle touring on and off-road involves a certain amount of risk and you need to have the openness and the ability to adapt to your environment. Riding through developing regions – besides the terrain – challenges are prevalent.

A full motorcycle license comes in handy with at least a year to two’s riding experience. One thing we do ask of everyone is please respect your fellow riders and the people whose lands your cross.

Our Responsibility:

Is to make sure you have the time of your life. But at our discretion any rider seen taking unnecessary risks en-route will have their journey terminated, thereafter traveling in one of the support-vehicles for the remainder of the tour or their tour ended forthwith. No reimbursement will be given. It is also our duty to make sure in the event of any unforeseeable circumstances – we keep your adventure on track without too many interruptions.

Itinerary:-

Day 01: Shimla Arrival (000 KM)………….(10th Aug 2019)
Arrive at Manali and reach the hotel on own. Check In to the hotel. After relaxing for a while, head to the site
where your bikes are parked. After a quick briefing, it is now time to enjoy a practice ride. Familiarize yourself with the way of driving on dirt roads, meandering bends and rugged landscape. Savor the surrounding scenery. In the evening, back to the hotel.

Day 02: Shimla to Sangla (225 KM) ………(11th Aug 2019)

and from there on it will be with you till Khab. With the Bapsa river magically weaving itself through the forested slopes, this exquisite 95 kilometer stretch of the Sangla Valley is a sight to behold. Known predominately for its agriculture, every house in Sangla will have cultivations of apples, pears, walnuts, apricots or potatoes. Sangla is one of the most beautiful valleys in India.

Chitkul can be described as one of the most scenic settlements in the valley and the last inhabited village
before the India-China border. This short drive from Sangla to Chitkul will be one of the most scenic drives
you’ll take with plenty of opportunities to take stunning photographs. Walk around the Bapsa river and pay
tributes to the Mathi Goddess at the temple in the village. After spending time in Chitkul, we turn around
and head to Kalpa. Legend has it that Kalpa was the winter home of Lord Shiva. If it’s true, he couldn’t
have found a more remarkable abode for himself, with enthrallingly majestic views of the Kinner Kailash
and Jorkandan Peaks looming right above the village. Overnight at a hotel in Kalpa.

is famously known as one of “most treacherous roads of the world” by the lonely planet in a visual spectacle. Don’t let that little piece of information deter you because your local drivers are highly skilled and experienced while driving on these roads. As you begin embracing the jaw-dropping views watch the mountains change their colors from the lush greens of the Kinnaur valley to the many hues of brown.
After a quick refueling stop at Puh, we proceed to Nako – the last hamlet of Kinnaur, before we enter the
