    Hello all of you adventurers out there!
    I'm looking for some Adventure rides around India
    Does not has to be in Himachalpradesh/Ladakh etc..., but needs to be on true Enduro bikes such as KTM EXC, Beta RR, Husqvarna TE, Gas Gas EC, etc.. Nothing against Enfields! I own one myself! But this is something else. Riding Enfields is a completely different way of living with your bike than tackling those hard enduro slopes / rivers / mud holes / jungles etc...

    I was googling around and could not find anything like this even on this forum. (Maybe my google bubble is too narrow :) )
    What I'm looking for is:
    Ride back to India (been there a couple times already) and rent a true Enduro bike with some skilled tour guide and go for some enduro riding for a few days. Location does not matter.

    So should you know about someone / webpage / name /location /number /e-mail... anything.
    Please leave a commend or PM me.
    Thanks a bambilion!
    Ride safe!

    Please post if/when you get additional details. I did some research into this and haven’t really found anything suitable. Have seen some trips in Nepal, particularly interested in Hearts and Tears Motorcycle Club in Pokhara. They do rentals as well as tours.

    More correctly: Akarsh, in Naggar, Kullu Dist, H.P.

    Fifteen years experience doing tours, currently preparing for the KTM Offroad Academy up here in a week or two. Hes got some imported (KTM) enduro bikes and they have a 60-km off-road/dirt road loop worked out. Kind of a different thing, but anyway. He's just now coming back from a Shinku-La tour in Zanskar/Ladakh... which he says was great.

    I think they managed to get some of the KTM's road-registered, so he might have some upcoming options on those lines.

    He rides a F850, even if the enduros are not available for tours, they probably have other options by now. I saw a group of BMW 300GS coming back from Shinku-La the other day, and of course there are plenty of Himalayans around. There are some upscale tour companies these days, you're not stuck with Bullets anymore!
