Royal Enfield's 15-day Tour of Nepal ride will be flagged off April 25 from Lucknow. The fifth edition of the Tour of Nepal will see 30 riders travelling over 2,000 kilometres before ending the tour May 9.
After being flagged off from Lucknow, the Tour of Nepal convoy will travel through Bhairhawa, Pokhra, Kalopani, Muktinath, Tatopani, Kathmandu, Kodari, Nagarkot, Chitwana and finally back to Lucknow. Royal Enfield says the route promises an off-roading experience with winding mountain roads, slushy trails and straight stretches through forests.
The riders will be travelling across twisty roads leading to Pokhra, explore Jomsom, which until recently was just a Trekking trail. The ride will also go through extreme off road trail leading to Muktinath, Tibetan plateau to Kodari and to Chitwan National park. Then ride will head to Lumbini, the birthplace of Buddha.
