India is a mysterious and spiritual place, with centuries of history forming its very heart and core. Those who visit this beautiful and cultural land tend to focus their attention on Delhi, the Taj Mahal, or perhaps the beach resorts in the south, such as Goa, but that means that so much of this huge and diverse land is missed out. Travelling around on public transport is possible, and certainly and experience, but it isn’t the easiest process in the world. To give you a truly breath-taking journey, whilst being able to immerse yourself in the culture of the different regions entirely, why not take a tour by motorcycle?
Yes, you heard right!
Motorcycle tours are becoming more and more popular, and when you think about the benefits, i.e. the wind in your hair, the freedom of the open road, and the ability to be at one with everything you are passing by, it’s no surprise.
Vintage Rides have been offering various tours for years, and are highly experienced in terms of putting together bespoke itineraries, which show you the highlights of different regions, whilst also allowing you to experience the culture and authenticity at the same time. Motorbike tours in India in India are a great way to experience the country first hand, and of course, you can choose which region you really want to specialise in. Travelling the entirety of India in this way is basically too much; it would take too long, use too much fuel, and you would be exhausted by the end of it, so be sure to find a region, or a couple of regions, which all out to your interests, and base yourself there.
The Himalayas are obviously world famous, and this mythical region of India, heading towards spiritual Tibet, is somewhere to be hold. The strange, almost moon-like appearance of the landscapes becomes more intriguing as you get closer to the mountains themselves, with a route taking you over the highest roads, and into a land that is as serene and cultural as you will find anywhere else in the world.
Of course, if altitude isn’t your thing, why not head south and explore the region around Kerala and Goa? The beaches here are considered to be the best in the country, with a vibrant and upbeat feel the region. Winding across the Western Ghats you will head into Tamil Nadu, with its stunning Tamil temples, as well has having time to kick back and relax on those paradise beaches.
Alternatively, Rajasthan in the north of the country is a truly colourful and diverse region, packed with history, tradition, and friendly locals who will go out of their way to help you learn about their customs and way of life. The landscapes are diverse and quite demanding, with mountains, plains and deserts to cross, however it is certainly a journey that will leave you with many amazing memories to take home.
