Here are 5 motorcycle tours in India you can’t afford to miss.
Manali – Leh Ladakh
The first thing we should point out is that this is a testing one and not a trip a new rider should attempt – it’s seen as one of the most difficult route in India. Having said that, it is one off the most rewarding routes that you will ever encounter, You’ll need about 15 days to complete it. We love it because of the fresh mountain air, the spiritual feel you get passing the monasteries dotted along the route and also the sheer rush of adrenalin!
Shimla – Spiti Valley
The great thing about this route is that your final destination is a beautiful valley where you can relax with the sights and sounds of nature – that’s all after a truly thrilling bike ride of course! You’re going to love setting eyes on the beauty of the valley in Himachal Pradesh and also the wonderful ride at such altitude to get there.
Bangalore – Kannur
Kannur, located in Kerala, is a fantastic place to visit. If you’re planning to visit why not add a long, fantastic bike trip to get there. On this biking route you’ll pass by lots of lakes where you can take a pit stop, refresh and marvel at the scenery. You’ll be riding past some of the most amazing cliffs you’ve seen and once you arrive in Kerala you can feast on the mouthwatering food they cook up everyday.
Pollachi – Chalakudy
This is another trail to add to the collection of beautiful Southern Indian bike routes, it will take you from Tamil Nadu all the way to Kerala along a magical route. You can ride this trail anytime of year but of course you should be wary of riding during the monsoon season. I love the fact that the forest covers your trail making it a very cool ride. You’ll also be able to spot a lot of wildlife along the way in the forest.
Siliguri – Yuksom
Any biker will love the chance to ride through Darjeeling and Sikkim because it is a fantastic route, the best starting point has to be Siliguri. Don’t forget to stop off in Kalimpong, Pelling and Gangtok along the way!
