Program

Day 1: Arrive in Delhi

On arrival at Delhi international airport, meet and greet with the staff member, then transfer to the hotel.

Day 2: Delhi - Guwahati (by flight)

Your port of arrival is Guwahati. Here you will be met by your local team and transferred further to your designated hotel. After you are refreshed, you will take the opportunity to see your motorcycle, following which the team has a comprehensive briefing regarding the days to come.

Day 3: Guwahati - Tezpur (180 kilometers / 112 miles, 5 hours)

Today you will head out of congested Guwahati as daybreak. You will ride east towards the rising sun on four-lane national highways. Today, you ride to Tezpur, a historic city lying at the north bank of the Brahmaputra. The distance for the day is 180 kilometers, which should be short work, taking you at the most five hours.

The idea is to get used to the new environment and riding conditions gradually. Before getting into Tezpur, you will make a brief stopover at the Kolia Bhumura bridge, where you take a short boat ride to sight the ever-dwindling Gangetic river dolphins. Once at the hotel, you will have a short debrief regarding the day and also a briefing regarding the next day’s ride. These evening sessions will be the norm throughout the trip.

Day 4: Tezpur - Bomdila (235 kilometers / 146 miles, 7-8 hours)

Today will be your first day in the mountains. Here on you will be riding along the Bhutan border for most of the day. Initially, the area has dense evergreen forests at the lower altitudes, but as you climb, you will notice the vegetation changing and becoming sparse. In relative terms the roads are generally in good condition.

Day 5: Bomdila - Tawang (170 kilometers / 106 miles, 7-8 hours)

Today will be a long and high road as you pass the 13700 feet Sela Pass. You start with a descent towards the Dirang Valley. The next stage takes you up to the Sela Pass which is a constant climb. There is always a high chance of finding snow up here, but the army usually ensures it's open throughout the year. From here, a long descent with numerous hairpins takes you to the valley floor only to start climbing again.

Situated at 10,000 feet, Tawang is the last proper town before Tibet in this sector. Tawang is a town famous for its monastery, which is one of the important religious centers of Tibetian Buddhism. It's also popular for its panoramic views of the Eastern Himalayas into Bhutan in the west and Tibet on the North. In older times, this used to be an important town due to its proximity to Tibet and Bhutan.

Day 6: Tawang

This is an optional day, those who want to rest and explore around Tawang can do so. For the ones who want to ride, the team will take you close to the tri-juncture of Bhutan, Tibet, and India. Here, you will visit the Gorsum Chorten. Gorsum Chorten has many interesting stories behind it. Each way is about 75 kilometers. This excursion will take you the whole day.

Day 7: Tawang - Dirang (140 kilometers / 87 miles, 6-7 hours)

Retracing the route, you will make your way for the township of Dirang. Again, you have to cross the Sela Pass.

Day 8: Dirang - Nameri (200 kilometers / 124 miles, 7-8 hours)

Leaving early, you make your way back to the Brahmaputra Valley of Assam. Your destination is the Nameri wildlife sanctuary. For the most part of the day, you are off the main road as you ride on little-used roads. Here you will stay in the eco camp run by the Anglers Association.

Day 9: Nameri

You will spend the whole of the next day here indulging in some wildlife walks, rafting, and relaxing.

Day 10: Nameri - Shillong (300 kilometers / 186 miles, 7-8 hours)

Leaving early, you head out towards Shillong, the capital of Meghalaya. A colonial time hill town, Shillong still preserves its old charms mixed now with modernity. The roads are excellent and mostly four-lane until Shillong.

Day 11: Shillong - Dawki (170 kilometers / 106 miles, 5-6 hours)

You will ride on some of the best riding roads of Meghalaya today. You head out first towards Jowai the capital of the Jaintia Hill district. En route, you visit the Nartiang Monoliths a popular place to visit while in Meghalaya. Your destination for the day is Dawki, lying at the border with Bangladesh. Today you will camp on the beach along the topaz blue waters of the river.

Day 12: Dawki - Cherrapunjee (100 kilometers / 62 miles, 4-5 hours)

A beautiful ride today. The distance of about 130 kilometers will take you across deep valleys and interestingly a 30-kilometer section along the Indo-Bangla border. For lunch, you stop at Mawlynnong, supposedly the cleanest village in Asia.

Day 13: Cherappunjee

This day offers you a beautiful yet fairly tough hike down to the bottom of the valley. Here, lies the now famous root bridges including the double-decker. The hike takes you about four kilometers each way, taking about 1.5 to 2 hours each. At the bottom, you can swim in one of the numerous pristine pools that are in abundance here.

Day 14: Cherappunjee to Guwahati (200 kilometers / 124 miles, 7-8 hours)

Your last day of the ride will take you back to Guwahati. The distance of 200 kilometers will take you about 7 to 8 hours to cover. Your hotel in Guwahati lies in the city bypass, in close proximity to the transporters, making it easy for those who need to truck their bikes back.

Day 15: Guwahati - Delhi (by flight)

In time transfer to airport to board the flight to Delhi. On arrival, transfer to the hotel.
