Bike Trips In India

1. Manali to LehLadakh

The trip from Manali to LehLadakh is undoubtedly the most sought after. But you have to be a tad bit of an experienced rider for this one since it’s one of the most difficult roads to attempt. However, it’s also the most satisfying one you’ll be wrapped in an enticing valley in Manali and reach a gorgeous peak in Leh. You might want to try and pick a route that passes through Rohtang La, Sarchi and Upshi. Make sure you keep at least 15 days in hand for this trip. You do not want to rush this one!

2. Shimla to Manali via Kinnaur and Spiti

Shimla is one of the most beautiful places in India and there’s no better way to explore this scintillating valley in its raw beauty than a motorcycle trip. Moreover, with orchards, shrines and an invigorating resting place, the best route to get this experience would be to go past Baspa, Kinnaur, Kalpa and Kaza to reach the valley.

3.Mumbai to Pune Expressway

The Mumbai-Pune Expressway is India’s first high speed, six-lane concrete road. An easy weekend getaway from Pune/Mumbai, a road trip to Lonavala is something that almost all local residents will swear by. Also, don’t forget to savor ‘chikki’ in Lonavala. The picturesque surroundings and lush green foliage are great at calming those jittery nerves. So if you are in the region and planning to take a road trip look no further.

4.Vishakhapatnam to Araku Valley

The graceful marriage of the Bay of Bengal and the Eastern Ghats in Visakhapatnam are a sight to behold. Any first time visitor to the city is taken away by the captivating beauty of this union in the city. When the same traveller takes a trip to Araku, he’s completely mystified by the beauty of the road. Moreover, the curly roads, the gentle elevation and the mystifying serenity of the hills makes it an amazing road trip in south India and will etch a permanent place in your heart for an eternity.

5. NH 17

This is undoubtedly the best coastal ride in India and is very similar to the 101 highway in the United States. This ride, which runs all the way from Mumbai in Maharashtra to Trivandrum in Kerala can be either done in one complete shot or in parts. This route ensures that you always play hide seek with the coastline and cross countless pristine beaches of mainland India (across Maharashtra, Goa, Karnataka and Kerala). Maravanthe beach on this highway will be your motorcycle’s favorite parking spot!

6.NH 212

National Highway 212 connects Kozhikode in Kerala with Kollegal in Karnataka via Mysore and runs through the Bandipur tiger reserve in Karnataka. Do look forward to close encounters with giant Elephants on the way!

7.Guwahati to Tawang

Two absolute essentials from Northeast and a trip just like its two ends- challenging, yet spread across an extremely beautiful terrain. A few stops in between, and you should be able to pull it off more conveniently. The trip should take you about 10 hours plus your stops.

8.Delhi to Manadawa

Delhi is the hub of cultural history of India. So if you want to travel and soak in some natural beauty and history at the same time then this trip is the best thing to do! It will satisfy both the biker and the tourist in you. Going all the way from Delhi towards the Taj Mahal, you can also stop at the FatehpurSikri falls in between Agra and Jaipur, see some of the forts in the city and get into a cultural mood at Pushkar, where you’ll have to be careful of a slightly narrower trail. The cultural richness of the trail combined with all the forts and palaces make it a truly fulfilling experience. See a few of the sights and sounds in the town of Mandawa before you head back!

9.Gangtok to Lake Tsomgo and Nathu-La Pass

The North-East, largely unexplored is home to some of the best destinations for road travel in India. This is one of those road trips of North-East that you should undertake at once without thinking much. The hilly terrain might make it a challenging ride, but the beauty of the road lies in the uncertainty of the terrain. The awesome sight along the roads on mountain ranges will totally make up for everything else! Take a road trip in winters to Lake Tsomgo (also known as Changu Lake) from Gangtok and know happiness like never before!

10.Bangalore to Bandipur Forest

One cannot put forward a list of awesome road trips without accounting for one that is taken along a forest. The Bandipur Forest route to Bangalore is one of the most beautiful trips through forests in India, that you’ll ever take.  One can take the same road to Ooty from Mysore passing though Bandipur National Park. You might spot deer nonchalantly crossing the road. There’s no better manner of paying your respects to this charming highway!

So what are you waiting for? Pack your bags and head to Thailand ASAP!
