The package includes one night of camping accommodation, breakfast and dinner, day rides along with Superbikes to Rohtang and around Manali, adventure activities and live music performances in Old Manali. The local bike rentals are Rs 1,500 per day with options of KTM or Enfield 350 CC and Rs 2,200 per day for Royal Enfield 500 CC.
Riderthon is committed to the goal of “Zero Residual Damage”. All the music and LED lights at the festivals use minimal power. No paper or plastic is used for the festival and no pollution on the site is tolerated. All waste materials will be recycled or disposed responsibly at the end of the festival.
