"Trip of a Lifetime"

Karma Yatri: Hashim and his crew Sonu & Stan were amazing. Hashim took me to Kargil, Zanskar Valley and Pangong Tso (lake). He knows the area and the roads like the back of his hand. Road closed: detour - no problem!

His planning of the whole trip is meticulous! Hotel locations were brilliant! Rooms were great, food was delicious, roads were amazing, views were fantastic! The RE Himalayan performed flawlessly.

Hashim is very easy to work with and quite accommodating to your needs. He speaks Hindi, Kashmiri, Tamil, English, German and French. So, communication is never an issue, which makes life so much more easier.

I could go on and on: I truly do not have anything negative to say about this whole 10-day trip, or experience. I shall cherish the memories for a very long time...

Thank you, Hashim, Sonu and Stan!

"A Tour in Goa with Karma Tatri "

Hashim took us, amateur riders, across beautiful Goa and beyond in a very organised, clever and secure way, allowing us to enjoy the rides and the country.

Riding the RE Himalayans was a true pleasure throughout all terrains up to uphill off road.

The selected places were peaceful and beautiful, allowing us to rest for the next riding day.

Hashim will have a lot of pleasure to speak with you and share his extensive knowledge of the world.

Will ride again!

"A grand introduction to motorcycling in India"

Food was much better than expected - varied and delicious - so unfortunately in twenty days I put on three kg.

Accommodation was also better than I expected: there was a lot of variety, sometimes quirky but always clean and comfortable. The stay in a colonial tea plantation villa was exceptional.

Support services were very good. Nice guys who seemed to have a magic carpet to get their ute to wherever we stopped for a break within minutes of us stopping even when the traffic was particularly mental or the way more moonscape than road.

The Royal Enfields supplied were all less than three years old, were ideal for the conditions, and were well maintained overnight by the travelling mechanic.

"Himalaya Bike Trip Summer 23 with my 3 sons."

Hard to single out any one particular thing . Route and scenery magnificent. Guide and back up staff were top drawer. Accommodation was perfect especially considering where we went. Clean and the staff were always very polite helpful and accommodating. Always piping hot water morning and evening and lovely locations and good food. A privilege to enjoy riding with my 3 sons. As for the bikes RE Himalayan 411 the most unassuming, tolerant, indestructible forgiving bikes you can imagine. Perfect for the terrain. I cannot recommend Karma Yatri enough. last word reserved for Hashim who made the trip and ensured everything was spot on.

"Everything I was looking for in a trip"

I’ve been on numerous motorcycle tours all over the world and Hashim is a fantastic guide that put together an unforgettable adrenaline packed trip — but covered all the bases to keep things relatively safe and comfortable. Extremely knowledgeable and speaks exceptional English and can assist with booking all aspects of the trip. Weather was perfect and we covered so much varying terrain that it was always an interesting adventure. The extreme altitudes (up to 18,000’) for some of the passes and towns were no problem for anyone in the group. I highly recommend this trip.

"Amazing experience. Strongly suggested"

Very well organized trip. The guide was very experienced and always willing to adapt to the needs of the team. Also, the support team was very good and always available.

"Ladakh 8 day tour Kama Yatri"

Everything exceeded my expectations, from advice and support pre-tour to the quality of the accommodation, bikes and food - extremely good value for money. Hashim is very knowledgable, really understands the location, is flexible and speaks perfect English. The locations and roads we travelled were completely stunning and somehow the support crew were never more than a few minutes behind. All in all a truly fantastic experience that I would recommend to anyone with the right level of biking skills who wants an adventure!!

"Loved every minute"

This was my first India tour, and I didn't really know what to expect. As it turned out, going with Hashim and Karma Yatri (who I found on bookmotorcycletours.com) was an excellent decision.

The tour hit all the marks. The route had a variety of road types, from highway to small winding roads through the coffee plantations and parks, to high mountain gravel. I rode the Royal Enfield Classic, which handles most any type of road condition, like the workhorse it was designed to be. A comfortable ride, even over long distances.

The scenery along the way opened my eyes to the beauty and spaces of India, from the coast of Goa then inland. The accommodations were suitable for an adventure trip of this kind. Some very nice places in the more touristed areas, and in the more remote areas, where you would not find a "fancy" place at all, the accommodations were always clean and comfortable.

And the food...oh my...through the roof delicious, wherever we stopped. Sometimes it was a small restaurant in a village, other times at a seaside resort. Plenty of it too.

I also appreciated that we had a support car with mechanic and driver along the way, if anything went wrong. Though nothing really did, it's good to have it.

Our guide Hashim was organized, attended to the details, made sure we had what we needed, and informative about the culture and places we went.

I have no hesitation to join a tour with Karma Yatri again.

"Karnataka ride"

Aside from the wonderful country of India, this tour encompassed a rich variation in rides; tarmac, off-road, twisties and scenery. The company (5 in total) bonded well, not least through Hashim's organisation; bikes were exchanged and the varied accommodation would be hard to beat.

I'd do it again.

Special thanks to guide as nothing, organisational, seemed too much trouble, and his toleration of my riding much appreciated.
