HIGHLIGHTS

When you land at Skardu Airport, we will be waiting for you, we will transport you and your luggage to the hotel where your bike will be waiting for you full of fuel. After your flight, it's time to get settled, chill out a little, or jump on your bike and take it for a spin around Skardu to get used to your bike. In the evening we will have a welcome feast to allow everyone to get to know each other, and the local team, we will go through a few logistics and answer any questions you may have.

The first few days we take it easy, allowing you time to get used to the altitude and the local road rules. Then it's time to head West and ride through some of the best dirt roads you can imagine, Roads that snake along the bottom of valleys following the course of the river. Roads that cling halfway up a cliff face with no barrier between you and the water below. Roads that have never been sealed and are maintained by the locals.

Pakistan is a country where Islam is the national religion with 97% of the population following this belief system, This tour takes you through the strongholds of the remaining 3%.

On this tour, we visit the Kalasha people who are indigenous to the Chitral region of western Pakistan and are considered to be the most unique with an Animism-based belief system.

We also visit the Whaki people who speak Khik zik and are an Iranian Ethnic group.

Forget what you think or have read about Pakistan, this is a country where everyone who visits comes away with a profound shift in their perception of the country.
