Royal Enfield today announced the dates for the much awaited Himalayan Odyssey 2018. One of the biggest motorcycle ride of its kind in the world, Himalayan Odyssey will see participants traversing the mighty Himalayan terrain, covering a distance of close to 2, 200 kilometres in 18 days on their Royal Enfield motorcycles. To be held from July 5th to July 22nd, 2018, it will bring riders from across India together and provide them with unlimited supply of breathtaking views to intimidating terrain throughout the journey. Himalayan Odyssey has been the ultimate motorcycling ride in the Himalayas and will continue to challenge the riders at every step with numerous mountain passes and natural obstacles. A journey like Himalayan Odyssey is a life changing experience and over the 18 days, the riders will face each challenge together that will strengthen the sense of camaraderie amongst them and in the end leave every rider with memories which will remain deeply etched in the mind forever.



The 15th edition of the Himalayan Odyssey will be flagged off from India Gate, Delhi and traverse towards Khardung-La – the highest motorable road in the world at 17, 500 feet above sea level. The registrations will be open on the Royal Enfield website – for Himalayan Odyssey 2018 and Himalayan Odyssey – Women 2018 from May 4th onwards.


The Himalayas have been the mecca for motorcyclists and the Royal Enfield Himalayan Odyssey has been their chosen journey to ride through the mighty mountains. Royal Enfield is embarking on this epic journey with 50 participants on the Himalayan Odyssey and 20 women participants on the Himalayan Odyssey Women edition.  Both the rides will be flagged off from Delhi together and will ride on different routes before finally converging at Leh. Through the ride, the participants will traverse across the picturesque regions of the Himalayas in Ladakh as well as Spiti. Both the regions will throw hostile challenges at the riders in terms of weather and terrain. Each turn will expose the riders to a new landscape like no other, eventually getting them surrounded by the overwhelming beauty of the great Himalayan peaks.
