Ride to the roof of the world with Red Panda Adventures. Let us take you on a motorcycling pilgrimage, known among riders as one of the best motorcycle rides you can ever do in your lifetime. This Spiti Valley bike trip is one of the best and one the most challenging rides we offer and the rewards are yours to reap. Enjoy the breathtaking landscape, challenging terrain and immerse yourself in the local culture on our ride to the roof of the world.
We have been organizing guided rides on this route for over eight years and even now, every ride feels like the first time. We have deep local knowledge of this terrain and we understand, riders need a good mix of hard riding and comfort. This Khardung La Bike Tour offers a mix of everything, long sweeping tarmac highways, rough broken terrain, riding endlessly through valleys and high-altitude climbs.
This Spiti Valley bike trip starts in Chandigarh at 1,050ft (350mts) above sea level and in about 1300kms, climbs all the way to a whopping 18,379ft (5,602mts) above sea level at mighty Khardung-La. This is the highest motorable road in the world, open to civilians.

Riding in the Himalayas is a lot of fun and promises adventure around every bend. Formed over millions of years, the Himalayas command and deserve respect. We try our best to inform our clients of all the possible challenges they might face and also of all the key highlights and attractions along the way. However, the ultimate responsibility of safety lies with the riders. We have had the pleasure of riding with over 150 riders in the last eight years and we hope to continue building these relations with like-minded individuals across the world. This Spiti Valley bike trip is not ideal for someone who has just started riding. The terrain and the altitude can get overwhelming. We do not believe in rushing through this and we have a time table which allows for many stops along the way, for photographs and chit chat. There are a multitude of ‘chai’ stops along the way but we aim to start and finish the ride each day while the sun is up. The accommodation and food we provide is considered to be top of the line for this part of the world but we do expect our clients to set their expectations accordingly. Luxury in this part of the world is relative to the terrain and needs a bit of adjusting. With our extensive experience of operating in this region, we take full precautions for health and safety before and during our trips. We have a well-equipped support vehicle that is part of each Spiti Valley bike trip. We carry spares for all kinds of small and big breakdowns and a mechanic is always part of the crew. The team is trained in first aid and we carry a well-stocked first aid kit along with medicines to tackle altitude sickness, stomach bugs, nausea, fever and headaches. We have a list of all police stations, hospitals, military posts and emergency services for all our routes to handle all eventualities.
Friendly and experienced riders. If your’re looking for a premium motorcycle tour/experience and an adventure on two-wheels — hit up Red Panda Adventures. Their rides will help you “escape the ordinary”, and it is worth every penny!
I totally got more than I had expected on their Enchanting Tawang ride in Feb 2019. With the help of their knowledge of the area, they had selected some of the most exciting routes which resulted in an intoxicating mix of Fun, Pleasure, Thrills on each day of the ride! All that you want out of something that is labelled as an Adventure Ride. The choice of the RE Himalayan as the motorcycles could not have been better either, it just did everything that you expect! Do I recommend Red Panda rides to other riders? - Whole heartedly. Will I take another ride with Red Panda Adventures myself? - Sure. I certainly hope that Red Panda cooks up some more equally exciting rides in that fabulous part of the world, called the Seven Sister states of India (NorthEast India).Read More
What a great experience it's been renting a motorcycle from Red Panda. Inspite of the fact that I'd only signed up for renting a motorcycle, these guys went all out helping me plan the entire ride. Not just that, they were only a call away throughout the 20 days of my trip, helping me sort the minor troubles I faced with the motorcycle while on the road. For anyone who's planning to travel the northeast region of India, I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend renting a motorcycle/signing up for an organised motorcycle tour with these guys. Thank you so much Bala & team for helping me plan a ride I'm gonna cherish for the rest of my life. CheersRead More
Red Panda Adventures, Thank you very much for giving me an experience of a life time. The entire expedition as I would like to call it was well managed with a lot of passion, enthusiasm and most importantly servicing the smallest need of every participant. Bala ji is a very knowledgeable, kind hearted and a humble person and an excellent host and a great sport, am sure he misses the “Tawang special” we gave him. Big thank you to Hrushikesh for having my back and making sure I completed every obstacle on my way, and not to forget Lama ji a wonderful person with such positive energy. A big shout out to all the people who took care of us in a very special way at all the Home stays. Highly highly recommend Red Panda AdventuresRead More
I had a great time travelling the north-east Indian states of Assam and Meghalaya in December 2017 with Red Panda Adventures. The motorbike tour was well organized and the whole trip was a great experience. The landscape is fascinating and offers lots of variety. Visits to national parks, offroad biking, elephant riding, relaxing days, bond fire and BBQ, authentic cuisine, visits to villages and meeting the locals, waterfalls, breathtaking views into the canyons, hiking in the rain forest.. all of this is included in the trip! An adventurous trip to this still mainly undiscovered part of India.Read More
