Some experience, off road riding will be practical.
Motorbike tours are permanent feature of adventure riding Royal Enfield Motorcycles on the Himalayan country roads, highways and hidden mid hill trails in Nepal.

Though we will operate the trip after relaying the pros and cons if interest still arise. Our motorcycle trips cover spectacular black topped and off roads with countless uphill, downhill, switchbacks, hairpins, crossing stunning rivers (almost 150m long width and knee deep water) tests ability but includes breath taking mountain panoramas. Most importantly it provides insight of how life of inhabitant transform from 70m above sea level into 3100m in few days. Plenty of hidden cultural intrigue.
The trip is on 500 c.c Royal Enfield Motorcycles and riders should be aware the bike comes with a low featured silencer hose. Really should have the knowledge to control acceleration and make sure the engine don’t stall while crossing the river else simply have to wade through running water (pushing that damn heavy machine against streaming flow of the river won’t look very characteristic).
