The postponement of the tour into later autumn was mainly the result of our adventures and experiences of our Spiti tour group that went this year:

The whole group had to seek shelter under the roof of a tiny guest house, where only one room could be heated properly but thanks to a sufficient supply of rum and foodstuff everybody „made it“.

The roads leading out of the valley were blocked for 10 days. So the group had to be rescued by helikopter and later the way back to Manali took place inside a small coach bus. In Manali the sun was shining again but after two days of rest the flight back to Delhi was scheduled. Thus this group could not unfortunately take the route back as planned.

Not oncewithin the last 20 years in the Himalayas the weather goods have played us such a bad hand, so hopefully we will be lucky fort he next 20 years...

Hubert from Austria, adventurer, book author, mountaineer, photographer and dedicated Enfield rider, helives mainly in the vicinity of Graz but is mostly on the road. This summer he joined three Ladakh tours as 2nd guide and the last one as Road Captain, all to the exaltation of the tour guests and crew: He will be in the most part involved in the Ladakh tours and will also plan and orgnize our new Tibet program. More infos about him and his work can be found on his website:

Road Captain Peter has bought himself a farm house close to Naggar in Kullu - Manali Valley....

...where in the future he will be organizing the complete Classic Bike Adventure – tour program and the „Back Office“. There are two guest rooms and two guest cottages. So next summer the latest he will be entertaining good friends in his new home.
