Over the past four and a half billion years, tectonic plates have been shifting around, breaking and reforming continents on the earth’s surface. When the Indian subcontinent crashed into the Eurasian plate some 40 to 50 million years ago, the Himalayas began to form. As one of the longest mountain ranges and home to most of the world’s tallest peaks above sea level, the Himalayas offer some of the most stunning landscapes and biodiversity you will ever see. If you are seeking adventure beyond typical tourist destinations, the Himalayan motorbike tours we offer at Big Bike Tours are exactly what you need.

The Himalayan mountains are surrounded by several countries filled with remarkable people and magnificent cultures, and we have many Himalayas tour options available to traverse some of these spectacular areas.
10 Days Through Tibet
Our shortest Himalayas tour takes you through the breathtaking Tibetan landmarks from the capital city of Lhasa to the Everest Base Camp on the north side of Mount Everest at an elevation of 5,150 meters. You’ll ride your bikes to see great Tibetan Buddhist sites, like the historical Potala Palace and Tashi Lhunpo Monastery, and majestic natural areas, like Namtso Lake and Karola Glacier, as you get close with the environment and the wonderful people that keep up with it.
12 Days Traversing Bhutan
One of our most unique Himalayan motorbike tours takes you through the rich culture, tradition, and incredible environment of the Kingdom of Bhutan, nestled in the Eastern Himalayas. The roads of Bhutan are infamous for motorbikes as they are winding and curving along the edges of extraordinary mountains and virtually untouched forests. One of our guided Himalayan rides with Big Bike Tours through Bhutan will have you filling your cameras with unforgettable memories of the awe-inspiring wildlife and nature through the sharp and narrow mountain road bends. Not to worry, most roads are not highly trafficked, so you have plenty of room to enjoy the fantastic scenery as you ride.
14 Days in the Indian Himalayas
Starting in New Delhi, the capital city of India, this 14-day journey is not for the faint of heart. To participate in this Himalayas tour, we highly recommend that you have at least some off-roading motorbike experience. Additionally, you must have sufficient travel insurance and be reviewed by your doctor before arriving. This trip includes riding over the highest motorable roads in the world through the Ladakh region of India. These roads are infamous with motorbike enthusiasts across the globe as they can be very treacherous due to rapidly changing weather conditions.
