Our own Casa Tres Amigos Resort in Goahas reopened. Our dear Ranjeeta has had her 2nd son in June, and she and the crew are ready again to welcome you as guests. Also: All four „stone cottages“ have been equipped with AC, which can be very agreeable during the hot and humid pre-season up to November and again after the month of March.

The Uttarkhand Pilot Tour in the Indian Himalayas has been postponed until October 2015. The reason beeing the disastrous floods in June of this year where many important temples and whole villages plus roads have been completely destroyed. We have seen the damages with our own eyes, since we were scouting the tour there and then. From what we saw, it will take at least one or two years to rebuild the infrastructure enough, so that the tour can be a success... We have received seven reservations for 2015 already, but there are still some free bikes.  

The dates : 02. – 18.Oct 2015
Tour price : 2.490 € for Bikers / 2.090 € for pillion rider / 450 € for single room



Our next big Tibet pilot tour takes place in May 2015. We are happy not to have ventured into Tibet this year since the Chinese have only allowed very restricted tours and even the Everest Base Camp was "off-limits"...
We strongly hope, that the Chinese will ease the tensions in the near future, so that they'll allow us to undertake some more exciting tours into the Chamdo region of Eastern Tibet.

The dates are set: Tue 05.05.- Wed 20.05.2015 (16 days)

In the planning stage: Extension of pilot tour of 2012 - including a side trip to South-East central Tibet, into the forested region of Kham, situated partly below 3.000m (including such highlights as Draksum Lake, Tashi Gang and Serkym Pass, Nedong and Chongye, the "Valley of the tombs of kings“).

Scheduled are eight overnight stays at Tibetan heritage hotels and seven "tent-nights" at campsites with our own Nepali camp crew, who will also cook our lunches, thus making it possible for us to set up camp at the nicest spots.
On this tour we will visit the wild Kharta Valley, below Mt. Makalu, for the first time. The tour will end in Kathmandu, from Mount Everest Base Camp we roll down to the Tibet - Nepal border and have an overnight stay at the "Last Resort" in Nepal.
As always we will be taking our own 500cc Power-Bullets with the "best Tibet routing ever!"  Flights from Kathmandu to Lhasa and back are already included in the tour price. We are going to have even more time for acclimation, since only after eight days will we be climbing to heights of 4.000m, this makes "flatlanders" less prone to suffer from dizziness and headaches...

Estimated tour cost for bikers 4.950 €, pillion 4.450 €, (there is always the possibility to ride in the Landcruiser). 
Flights from Europe to Kathmandu are extra.

Sri Lanka is an island in tropical paradise, also called "The Pearl of the Indian Ocean". There are countless cultural relics to be seen and a fascinating contrast in landscape between the coast and the higher regions further inland. The island simply is a dream: here you have mountains, covered in jungles and tea plantations and at the same time long white sandy beaches lined with coconut palms. And all around the Indian Ocean with its deep turquoise color at bathtub temperatures. You might say that Buddha had an eye for the truly wonderful things in Life. And you'll follow his footsteps wherever you go on this island. 

Whereas the locals have no problem to get anywhere on their elephants, we as bikers will find a great many small long winding roads between the mountains, passing rice paddies and temples all along. 

Exactly the right terrain for our trustworthy and well-kept 250er-Enduros and street bikes. Gliding along the curves on this fantastic island will let your heart jump for joy, that is a promise.

Up to now we have had six group bike tours and some exploring tours on Sri Lanka. Unfortunately we had to stop doing tours for a couple of years, but now there is a friendly peaceful atmosphere everywhere on the island - and we are back! 
Our team is very experienced and "crazy" about that beautiful island. So why not join them for a tropical adventure in paradise?

We have some more very exciting tours for you in the next couple of months. I will guide the last Ladakh tour of this season myself, joined by 14 friends. And later also most certainly the Bhutan tours in October and November. The Mustang – Nepal Pilot tour will be guided by Tiziana, as well as Sri Lanka Tour in February and Nepal in March 2014.

All other South-Indian and Thailand tours will be guided by our trusted roadcaptains Martin, Go, Armin and Willy. In short, there is plenty of good stuff and excitement still to come! 

With the best biker greetings from Leh in Ladakh, the highest biker playground in the Himalayas, I wish you all an action-filled and accident-free Saison 2013.

Your Roadcaptain Peter & his Friends
