Indian motorcycle maker Royal Enfield flagged off the 13th edition of the Himalayan Odyssey, and also its first ever Odyssey for women. The 2,500km ride was flagged off from the India Gate in Delhi.
Both groups will travel in different routes and will meet up in Leh.
The women's Odyssey will involve a team of only women crew that consists of service staff, technicians, and doctors, who will assist the riders throughout the trip.
The 2,500km ride which will be done in 15 days will take participants through three mountain ranges and 6 passes. The riders will also have the opportunity to ride up Khardung-la, which was considered as the world's highest motorable road.
This year, the himalayan Odyssey will consist of 83 men and 20 women riders. Riders are from various parts of India and also include international participants from Thailand, Indonesia, Colombia, France, and UK.
