Royal Enfield’s The Tour of Tibet returns with its second edition this year. The ride to the mystical ‘roof of the world’ – Tibet begins on September 07. This year, 30 riders will complete the journey of 2380 kilometers over 14 days, at an average altitude of 4500 mts. With Tibet, Royal Enfield offers a new motorcycling frontier to conquer – the Everest Base Camp at an altitude of 5200 mts and makes this one of the most challenging rides that Royal Enfield has in its rides calendar.
Beginning from Kathmandu, the Tour of Tibet is an ultimate motorcycling adventure that empowers riders to conquer the mighty Himalayan range and the less explored Everest Base Camp. The love of ‘pure motorcycling’ brings riders together from all over the world and bond over their common passion of riding a Royal Enfield through the mystical terrains of Tibet. With riders riding at an average elevation of 4500 meters, locked away in the mountainous vastness of the Himalayas, the terrains of Tibet challenge the motorcyclists with their numerous hairpin turns and also offer an excellent off-roading experience on certain stretches. The 4 mountain passes in the journey coupled with scenic locales and high altitude riding, make Tibet an ultimate terrain to ride on and is a dream come true for motorcyclists willing to challenge their machines.
Last year at the first Royal Enfield Tour of Tibet, 17 riders conquered the Everest base camp. This ride is the third international ride in Royal Enfield’s calendar after Bhutan and Nepal.
It has been a constant endeavor at Royal Enfield to provide its loyalists with an unadulterated ‘pure motorcycling’ experience, wherein the man, the machine and the terrain come together as one and elevate the riding experience to a whole new level. The Tour of Tibet promises to excite and entice riders with its breathtaking landscape and vibrant culture. The ride offers newer motorcycling adventures and a variety of riding terrains to the participants which makes The Tour of Tibet an experience of a lifetime.
