$5800 Rider ($4500 Pillion)

The Manali – Leh Highway is not only the world’s highest road, it’s also the most beautiful place on earth – a big call, we know. This high-altitude course is like a playground for the gods; ever-changing, yet eternally spectacular.

The journey from Manali to Leh is truly thrilling, with the ‘highway to heaven’ being dubbed one of the most challenging roads in the world. Water-crossings, hairpin bends, dusty dirt tracks, knuckle-biting drop-offs and snowfall are just the beginning. The experience is equal parts character-building and awe-inspiring.
