Leh-Ladakh Motorcycle Ride

7-9 Days

A bike ride to Leh-Ladakh by any means is not an easy one since most parts of the road are at altitudes of 13,000 feet and above in the Himalayas. In addition, the number of miles one can cover in a day depends on the road and weather conditions and the few places one can stay enroute. This is where we step in with our experience so you can call your motorbike ride to Ladakh as the “Ride of My Life”. The spontaneous flow of our motorcycle tours are a judicious mix of adventure and stillness, while giving you in-depth knowledge of the historical importance of the landscape and culture you are passing through.

Bhutan Experience

6-10 Days

Bhutan has been much in news. It is not because of its effort to measure its performance in terms of Gross National Happiness rather than GNP. It is also not because of the natural beauty of the place – the monasteries, fortresses (dzongs) and the amazing topography ranging from subtropical plains to steep mountains and valleys. The big news is that Bhutan has become carbon negative. Yes, exactly that. Led by the dynamic Prime Minister Tshering Togbay, Bhutan has been working hard to protect the environment and reduce pollution and the results are showing.
But this is not the only reason to visit the land of Thunder Dragon. The Himalayan kingdom offers a plethora of experiences ranging from adventure, trekking, climbing to culture and heritage, from nature and wildlife to calm and peaceful environs of a Buddhist monastery.
In line with our philosophy, Rustik Travel has curated a range of travel experiences that are rustic, offbeat and sustainable. Here goes.
