A total of 100 riders from India and abroad will travel a distance of 2700kms during the 10th edition of the Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey which was flagged off from India Gate on Saturday.
Considered as the holy grail of motorcycle rides organized across the world, the Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey will travel to Khardung La, the world's highest motorable pass at 18,365 ft. above sea level.
This non-competitive, adventure motorcycling event will have riders in two different groups riding out of Delhi and converging at Leh. The contingent will return back to Delhi on July 8.
After flagging off the ride, Shaji Koshy, senior vice-president sales and 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 unadulterated motorcycling that brings the riders together from all over the world and bond over their common passion of riding on a Royal Enfield to the Himalayas. In our 10th year now, this ride has only become bigger and better with a record number of 100 riders riding together to Ladakh on their Royal Enfields."
The thumping cavalcade of riders, who have gathered across India from major metropolitan cities and smaller cities such as Bareily, Vizag and Kannur, will battle the treacherous terrains of Parwanoo, Narkhanda, Keylong, Sarchu via Kalpa and Kaza region.
To make the 10th chapter of the Himalayan Odyssey ever more special and memorable, Royal Enfield has organised the first ever Reunion North at Leh on June 30.
