Himalayan 18 Day Adventure

Starting in the historical and buzzing Old Delhi we take the all-new Nevermind Mobile to Mcleod Ganj. This funky little Himalayan village is home to thousands of Tibetan refugees and the Dalai Lama himself. After a quick ceremony the next morning to ensure safe passage through the Himalayas we depart deep into the interior of the Himalayas. Heading northeast through some of the most remote villages of Himachal Pradesh to Khajjiar, the Switzerland of India.

It is not long before spirits soar as we ride the now-infamous Sach pass which Nevermind Adventure pioneered many years ago. Then into Kashmir and without doubt the most beautiful mountain riding in the world. It is remote and untamed, raw, untouched and it is stunning.

We stay at the little explored village of Kishtwar and the historical Srinagar then head east into the stunning Zanskar valley, Leh and Ladakh. Grab a Yak Cheese Pizza at Leh and then ride Kardungla, officially the world’s highest road.

After the high altitude thrills of Leh Ladakh ride south through the lost and ancient village of Tsokar. Chill at Jispa and into the isolated and mind-blowing Spiti Valley. Battle the Spiti’s high altitude river crossings, glaciers, and rock-strewn tracks all the way to the Tibetan border.

Ride the switchbacks from the remote trade routes of “little Tibet”. Rest and explore Tiobetan Nako and into the Kinnaur Valley and stunning Sangla Valley. You will feel like you are in a National Geographic documentary. Then just when you thought you had seen it all a final surprise secret mountain pass on the last days of the ride into Manali.

Life will never be the same as these landscapes become part of your soul forever.

Only one who has ridden the secret passes of the Himalaya can truly understand the immensity of that statement.

Himalayan 18 Day Adventure – Overlander Expedition

Starting from Nevermind HQ in the historical and buzzing Old Delhi we take the all-new Nevermind Mobile to a secret location out of Delhi for the night where our bikes will be eagerly awaiting our arrival. This funky little Himalayan village is home to thousands of Tibetan refugees and the Dalai Lama himself. After a quick ceremony the next morning to ensure safe passage through the Himalayas we depart deep into the interior of the Himalayas. Heading northeast through some of the most remote villages of Himachal Pradesh to Khajjiar, the Switzerland of India.

The next day gets unbelievable as we ride the Sach pass into Kashmir and without doubt the most beautiful mountain riding in the world. It is remote and untamed but it is stunning.

We stay at Kistwar and Srinagar then head east into the stunning Zanskar valley and Ladakh. Grab a Yak Cheese Pizza at Leh and then ride Kardungla, officially the worlds highest road.

After the high altitude thrills of Leh Ladakh ride south through lost and ancient village of Tsokar, Jispa and into the isolated and mind-blowing Spiti Valley. Battle the Spiti’s high altitude river crossings, glaciers, and rock-strewn tracks all the way to the Tibetan border.

Ride the switchbacks from Nako into the Kinnaur Valley and stunning Sangla Valley. Then just when you though you could take no more a final surprise secret mountain pass on the last days of the ride into Manali.

You will not only be pushed to your limits by the altitude, freezing cold, glaciers, river crossings, sheer 1000 metre drops and narrow and boulder strewn goat tracks, but you will also battle your inner demons and face your darkest fears.

Only one who has ridden the secret passes of the Himalaya can truly understand the immensity of that statement.

Old Delhi – Our little guesthouse, tucked down a dark alleyway away from the craziness, is an oasis in what can only be described of as the carnage that is Old Delhi. Let us show you the real India, this is not a backpacker or tourist enclave and not for the faint-hearted. Real in your face India at its best, you will grow to love this hidden little treasure, everyone does.

Stay in cozy cabins perched high above the clouds looking down upon Shimla and the plains of India. This could well be Switzerland apart from the amazing home cooked Dal Makharni, Chapati and Indian sweets. You will never forget the amazing roads of the Himalayan steppe.

The Kinnaur Valley – Surprisingly great quality tarred roads winding all day between 2000 and 3500 metres. Ride through lush alpine scenery under waterfalls that gradually change to harsh alpine desert as we approach the infamous Spiti Valley.

Spiti Valley – Google it! Amazing and breathtaking, switchbacks as far as the eye can see and more beautiful than one could ever imagine. The Spiti is by far the most amazing place on this planet. River crossings, glaciers, sheer drops that will send shivers down your spine. Amazing Buddhist culture and some of the most remote border villages on earth.

Leh, Ladakh. The road approaching Leh will have put an ear to ear grin on your dial. Tough, grueling and exhausting but always breathtaking. Ride the two highest mountain passes on the planet, stroll through the handicraft markets of Leh.

Srinagar, Kashmir – This is the ride that just keeps on giving. Kashmir is famously known as the Switzerland of Asia. Zolila Pass is a challenging but one of the most beautiful mountain passes in the world. Wind down on Dal Lake by staying on a 100-year-old House Boat in Srinagar.

Outback Kashmir, Sinthan Pass, Kistwar and the Sach Pass will never be forgotten.
