Go on an Adventurous 2-week Motorcycle Ride to Mount Everest!

By on April 2, 2016

There are some of us who love to ride fast on straight and plain roads. It gives an adrenaline rush and a thrill of speed which cannot be compared to anything else. On the other hand, there are even those for whom the definition of adventure is to take your motorbike off the beaten track and onto the twisting narrow paths through hills and forests.IainCrockart-_D3X3776

The trip that will cover a distance of nearly 2000 kms will run from the 10th to 23rd Sep 2016 out of which 11 days will be riding days. In other words, you will have covered nearly one third of the Earth’s radius in less than 2 weeks! The bike to be used is the Royal Enfield Bullet, known for its tough body and raw power. In particular, the 500cc model of the Bullet will be used for riding to Mount Everest Base Camp, which is at an altitude of more than 15000 feet above the sea level.

The trip will include a stay in the Nepalese city of Kathmandu and Lhasa in Tibet
