The news of free luxury hotel upgrades offered with new bookings on two motorcycle expeditions which takes riders along the world's highest roads in India's Himalayan Mountains can only be considered as a great reason to take the two-wheeled leap.
The two trips, slated for 2016 are being conducted by Extreme Bike Tours and the upgrade offer expires on September 30, 2015 making for a semi-quick decision. Not much of a choice however, riders or pillion passengers on the all-inclusive, 14-night tours will be upgraded from three-star to five-star accommodation at the luxurious Hyatt Regency Delhi.
The upgrade offer includes one night before and one night after the tour starting and finishing in Delhi on June 18, 2016, and one night at the end of the July 5 tour which starts in the Himalayan town of Manali and ends in Delhi.
Extreme Bike Tours is based in India and owned by former Englishman and adrenalin junkie, Zander Combe.
Both 'Mighty Himalayan' tours will take riders deep into India's far north Himalayan region and over the 5600m-high Khardung La Pass, the highest motorable road on Earth. Another highlight of Extreme Bike Tours' flagship tours is the remote and wild Nubra Valley, a desolately beautiful and high-altitude cold desert frequented by hardy nomads and rare, twin-humped camels.
Guests will ride classic Indian Royal Enfield Bullet 500 motorbikes across 1300km of remote and spectacular roads in far north India and see gushing waterfalls, ancient monasteries cloaked by prayer flags and soaring, snow-capped peaks. Accommodation amongst the world's loftiest mountains will be in a combination of tents, rustic guesthouses and hotels along the road.
The two Mighty Himalayan tours departing June 18 and July 5, 2016, are available for US$4334 per rider or US$3371 for pillion passengers sitting behind crew/drivers or in the support vehicle. Fares include accommodation, meals, fuel, transfers and local flight connections.
Interested riders should understand tours and fares are subject to availability and conditions will apply. International flights to India are not included in tour fares and the Delhi hotel upgrade offer is valid for new bookings for these two tours made by September 30, 2015.
