The company also said that this edition of Himalayan Odyssey will continue to raise awareness about eco-friendliness, in order to reduce the impact of the Himalayas on the delicate ecosystem of the environment. These days the number of tourists visiting the Himalayas and leaving this beautiful region in disarray is increasing. Those wishing to participate in the ride can register on Royal Enfield’s website.
Royal Enfield’s Focusing On Reducing Waste
Royal Enfield aims to use zero “single-use plastic” on this tour this year by promoting safe, eco-friendly, and responsible travel practices. The bike maker had installed six pure water stations along the route of the previous Himalayan Odyssey, which happened in 2019 to curb plastic waste in the form of used water bottles. The initiative was promoted under the hashtag #LeaveEveryPlaceBetter and is expected to happen again this year.
