The beauty and wonder of Uttarakhand has a peculiar charm- that of a distant home in another land that you visited during childhood. Hills dappled with rhododendrons and deciduous forests, lakes of peculiar shapes bestowing life to quaint tiny towns, where people sit by the fire as dusk approaches and darkness spreads through the sky to talk of life and love and beauty- such is the miracle of Uttarakhand. And every ounce of this miracle is beautifully squeezed in this Overland Himalayan Motor-biking Expedition.

If you are in doubt about your own physical readiness, consult a physician well in advance of booking your trip!

Question 7- What do I need to know about sun protection?

It may seem counter-intuitive, but your skin is in more danger of sun damage on the mountains than while at the beach! The sun's intensity increases dramatically as we rise in altitude, and fresh snow reflects exponentially more UV rays than does the sand. You will need to protect your skin with clothing and sunblock. A sunblock specifically for mountain conditions is recommended. If you wear prescription eyeglasses its recommend that you get your prescription fitted to sunglasses.

Question 8-What happens if I get sick or injured during the expedition ?

We take all possible precautions to proactively ensure the safety and wellness of our rider, but rest assured that our guides are trained and experienced in dealing with emergencies. Each guide is trained in first aid. In the case of altitude sickness, you will immediately be taken to a lower altitude. If necessary, your guide will rescue you to the nearest Sattelite town.
