From last 10 years, Royal Enfield has been taking its customers to the mystic part of the Himalayas - the Ladakh region. In the recent times the routes and the mechanics have been revised a few times and every time it made people fill with a sense of pride. This year, it was Himalayan Odyssey's 11th birthday and to make the journey more memorable, Royal Enfield decided to reach Leh via the still untouched Lahaul Spiti region of Himachal Pradesh. This year, 72 riders will make to the 'world's highest motorable road'. These riders will cover more than 2,700 kms of a very scenic but treacherous terrain over a period of 17 days.

Addressing the riders at the flagging off ceremony at the India Gate, Mr. Abhijit Brar, Head - Marketing, Royal Enfield said, "The Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey is the ultimate motorcycling adventure that unites the rider with the bike and the terrain to create an experience of a lifetime. It is this love of pure motorcycling that brings riders together from all over the world and bond over their common passion of riding a Royal Enfield to the Himalayas. With each passing year a new set of riders is initiated to this extraordinary expedition. Their successful completion of this journey has come to eastablish Royal Enfield as the definitive bike for riding to Ladakh."

These 72 riders will reach Leh via Parwanoo, Kaza, Keylong and Sarchu, and will return via Manali and Chandigarh. The ride will end in Delhi on July 7, 2014.
