This is what makes them adventures. So make sure you have this. All travel insurance policies have an exclusion saying that if you break the law they have the right to deny the claim. It might be legal for you to whizz around in a Rickshaw in India on your licence - but maybe not in your country of origin, so it is entirely your responsibility to make sure your insurer will cover you with whatever licence you have. Indian Visa Many nationalities can buy this in advance to pick up on the border. We wouldn't scrimp on this one, we might make light of the dangers in our writing, but they're very real.
Although it's optional in June, you should definitely try and go that way if you can, as it's quite simply the most adventurous part of one of our most adventurous events. The permit can't be applied for before you arrive in India as it can only be obtained in Himachal Pradesh and you will need help from a travel agent to get it.

Royal Enfield Himalayan Key Features
Because the roads between the start and finish line are shut for at least half the year, there are almost no permanent features on this terrain. Not much has changed in this respect since the ancient trade routes passed through here on the way to China. The main source of food and accommodation is the 'Dhaba' roadside eateries, often little more than a tent with a daybed. Your Rickshaw Few locals up here have ever seen a rickshaw.
While that doesn't mean they wouldn't be able to fix them, it does mean that spare parts are few and far between. Fuel stops are very far apart. While you might be able to buy it by the bottle from passing locals you will definitely need to keep your jerry can filled for the longer stretches.
A word on the weather A bit shit.
Okay, so that's three words, but you get the gist. The weather is likely to be not good. Or if it is good, it's likely to be not good before too long. It will definitely get cold. It will very likely snow. There will almost certainly be rain.
Because of the aforementioned rain and snow, landslides and avalanches are fairly common around here, bridges and roads frequently get swept away. Generally, this happens in the off-season but you'll likely be delayed by the aftermath. Sounds like fun eh? What you get for your money The Rickshaw A 3-wheeled, 4-stroke air-cooled rickshaw, pimped to your own design with insurance and all the other necessary paperwork. Test driving, mechanical briefing, launch party and finish party. A jerry can and a few key spare parts plus the tools to change them.

The youngest and highest mountain chain on Earth, the Himalaya stretches in an arc across northern Pakistan; Nepal; Bhutan; the northwestern and northeastern states of India adjoining Myanmar; and the southwest China border in the east. The hotspot supports globally significant populations of several large mammals—including the Endangered tiger P anthera tigris and Endangered Asian elephant Elephas maximus —along with smaller mammals and birds such as the red panda Ailurus fulgens and white-winged duck Asarcornis scutulata.
The rugged, and largely inaccessible, landscape of the Himalaya makes biological surveys in the hotspot difficult.
Significant areas of intact forests are little or entirely unexplored. Thus, many floral and faunal taxonomic groups are understudied and the true extent of the biodiversity is undoubtedly underestimated. Many unique and diverse human groups are also found here.
Nepal counts more than 27 ethnic groups, either of Tibetan-Burmese or Indo-Aryan descent, while Bhutan has three main ethnic groups—the Ngalongs, Sharchogpas and Lhotsampas—with many smaller groups having their own unique cultural practices.
