2019 Classic Himalaya

June 29th to July 13th

Classic Himalaya is the perfect combination of holiday and adventure. A mix of lively sightseeing and exciting driving through jaw dropping scenery. It is your choice whether you drive one of our modern SUVs or ride one of our Enfield motorcycles.

We start in Amritsar for two days of sightseeing before catching a train south to collect our vehicles. We then head to the Spiti Valley, one of the remotest inhabited regions in the world.

Described by Rudyard Kipling as “a world within a world” the Spiti Valley is one of the world’s great road trips. Once there, you really will feel you’re in another world.

Cut off for much of the year due to heavy snow, the valley road has only been open to foreigners since 1992. No words can prepare you for the beauty of Spiti and the Himalayas. It’s like driving through a living museum. Thousands of years of wind erosion have created the most fascinating landscape, often referred to as ‘moonlike’. The terrain varies from lush vegetation through to mountain desert. The roads themselves have to be seen to be believed and are a quite staggering feat of engineering.

The route takes us just a few miles from the Tibet border and the influence of this close neighbour is clearly evident in the people, houses and monastries. The whole area has a peaceful and calming feel.

Classic Himalaya is much more than a holiday. It really is a Motoring Adventure of a Lifetime.
