Into the wilds of Himalayas
The Himalayan Bike trip is famous among bikers. Riding through the breathtaking roads of the Himalayas the adrenaline keeps rushing in your veins. You can start your trip from Rishikesh and through Devprayag; you can go towards the Valley of Flowers, Chopta, Kausani or Munsyari. If you really want to see where gods reside, then you can divert your route towards Hemkunt, Badrinath or Kedarnath. Avoid any trip during the monsoon.

Well, if you are running short of time or money you can go for a trip to Rohtang, which is about 50 km from Manali. The famous song ‘Ye Ishq haaye’ of the movie ‘Jab We Met’ was shot on this route. The real adventure begins when the visibility reduces to 50m near Rohtang.
From Manali towards Leh
Manali to Leh highway is considered as the most adventurous bike route in India. The 479km journey allows you to explore the beauty of Northern Himalayas, but for this, you have to go through the high altitude bouncy roads, bone-chilling cold, and a long passage without any human trace. This journey is so challenging that it will change your attitude towards life forever. This journey usually takes 10 days and one has to pack eatables along, as there are very few eating joints available on this route.

A ride on long deserted snake shaped road with visuals of the lush green valleys will heal you spiritually. Reaching to the beautiful hill station of the Sahyadri Hills will be an ultimate reward of the trip. The best time to visit this place is during monsoon.

The road towards Chitkul is one of the most dangerous roads in India. The fear will chill your bone so badly that you will pray to god for your safe return. For this reason, a lot of adventurers get attracted to the trip. Rivers, hill slopes, huge rocks and small village on the highway; this route has everything a mountain rider looks for.
