The ride will have two batches - Himalayan Odyssey (HO) and Himalayan Odyssey Women (HO-W).

“Every year scores of Royal Enfield riders ride their way up to the Himalayas, a terrain that we consider as our spiritual home. It is a pilgrimage where riders are able to leave behind their urban monotony and appreciate real and authentic experiences and become one with their machine and the terrain while riding,” Rudratej Singh, President Royal Enfield said.
