Frequently Asked Question

Q. What is the best time for Leh Ladakh Bike Trip?

Q. Which bike should I opt for Leh Ladakh Bike Trip?

A. Royal Enfield is the best or the most popular bike for taking up road trip to Leh Ladakh. However, any other 150cc+ is also enough for Leh Ladakh bike tour.

Q. If we rent out the bike from you, do we have any option in selecting the bikes?

A. Yes. Besides Royal Enfield, you have other options available such as Bajaj Avenger, Bajaj Pulsar 150cc, and Yamaha FZ. We can also provide you Harley Davidson bike on additional cost. However, the availability of the bike and cost of renting it, is entirely depended upon the demand for a particular make. Hence, we welcome the idea of riding your own bike, if you have a suitable one.

Q. What is the condition of bikes we rent out from you?

A. While we keep adding new bikes to our fleet every year, you will find that all our bikes are handed over to the riders in well serviced, perfect conditions, so as to prevent hassles during the trip.

Q. Do you provide any backup vehicle which will carry our luggage and petrol?

A. Yes, a backup vehicle is always provided by us with road trips to Leh Ladakh. As the name suggests, this is a backup vehicle for breakdowns and emergency situations. Ladakh bikers are always recommended to get Ladakh Carrier installed on your bike to carry the luggage, which should be packed light with absolutely necessary and limited stuff. Please follow our list of required stuff for this trip which is generally shared after the booking is confirmed.

Q. I have my own Royal Enfield bike but I am not yet sure whether to bring my bike or rent out one from you. So can I book for the tour now without bike and then pay for bike just before the trip, if needed?

A. It’s indeed a good thing that you have your own suitable bike for the trip. Since, you are equipped on riding it and understand it better than us, this is always the best option. However, under sceptical situations of not riding on your own bike, you can rent it out from us at the very last moment also. However, this last minute booking comes with its own disadvantages. Priority will always be given to clients who have pre-booked the bike with us. Also, in renting out bikes, you get fewer options to choose from and you may not be entirely comfortable riding it as compared to your own bike. Also, depending upon the demand for the bikes, charges may hike. So, as the best option, ride your own bike or else pre-book with us for renting it out. However, if that is not entirely possible, you can rent it out at the very last moment also.

Q. Can 2 people ride on a bike? Is a pillion rider allowed? If yes, then what are the charges?

A. Yes, pillion riders are allowed on bike tours to Leh Ladakh. It entirely depends upon the capacity of your bike.

The charges quoted are per person cost, and, hence the pillion rider is also considered as an individual, and charges are applicable as per person cost.

Q. If Pillion rider is allowed, will it not be difficult to carry two peoples’ luggage on a single bike?

A. While embarking on the bike tour to Leh Ladakh, Ladakh carrier is a must to be installed on your bike.  This is provided if you rent a bike from us, and, if you are taking the tour on your bike, then, it is recommended to get it installed. Also, for a bike tour to Leh Ladakh, always pack light so that luggage doesn’t become a problem. Still if you encounter difficulties accommodating your luggage on the bike, we can always help you out by accommodating it in the back up vehicle, which is at your service throughout the tour.
