  • Interested

  • I am in.

  • Himalayan Overlanders Mega Adventure (HOMA)- 2024

  • that sounds lovely. however, I recommend you check road conditions to avoid any spoiler alerts. usually April is not the month to do this circuit as it opens around end of may/June.

  • Ash bhai…yes you are absolutely spot on regarding road conditions in the month of April.
    We are taking chances here…🙂
    It will be an aimless wandering ride in the Himalayas with zanskar and hanle being priority ones.
    Rest all are a bonus.
    Where ever roads leads us we ride in that way.

  • We have successfully completed Himalayan Overlanders Mega Adventure 2024.
    Our ride had no fixed plan and did several circuits on the fly in the Himalayas.

    Circuit 1: Gurgaon-Chandigarh-Keylong-Shinku La-Kargyak-Padum.
    Circuit 2: Padum -Lingshed-Singe La-Sirsir La-Photoksar-Leh
    Circuit 3: Leh-Khardung La-Hunder-Diskit-Thoise-Turtuk-Hunder
    Circuit 4: Hunder-Agham-Shyok-Durbuk-Lukung-Maan-Merak
    Circuit 5: Merak-Chushul-Rezang La-Loma-Hanle
    Circuit 6: Hanle-Chisumle Bridge-Fotila-Umling La-Norbu La- Hanle
    Circuit 7: Hanle- Loma-Nyoma-Mahe-Chumathang-Leh.

    These circuits were planned on the fly and one can merge few circuits.

    In this HOMA Madness, we rode through Snow, Frozen roads, Cold Deserts, River beds, Awesome black top twisties, Gravel, and god knows what other terrains we rode through.
