Program

Day 1: Kochi (40 kilometers / 25 miles)

You will be picked up from Cochin International Airport (COK) by your tour leader and you will be taken to rest and recuperate at the secret beach resort. You will be introduced to the other riders, the lovingly maintained bikes, and the back up team. Welcome dinner and beer is on the house.

Day 2: Kochi - Thattekad Bird Sanctuary (85 kilometers / 52 miles)

After a morning relaxing around the pool and on the beach, you will set off inland stopping for lunch just near Kodanad Elephant Training Camp where you can join the elephants having their afternoon bath in the river. You will then take an interior route to reach Thattekad Bird Sanctuary where you will stay for the night in the secluded riverside resort with pool.

Day 3: Thattekad Bird Sanctuary - Munnar (154 kilometers / 95 miles)

You will head off to Munnar after breakfast, reaching early afternoon to take full advantage of the two-night stay in Windermere Estates Plantation and Retreat. Chill by the pool, ramble through the tea plantation, and enjoy the wonderful food.

Day 4: Munnar (80 kilometers / 50 miles)

You will head off in search of the elusive rare goat, the Nilgiri Tahr. A visit to Eravikulam National Park, the Tea Museum of Munnar, and top station are all possible, as well as a ride up to Lockhardt gap and down to Lake Devikulam. The scenery in this area will simply blow your mind.

Day 5: Munnar - Anamalai Hills (154 kilometers / 95 miles)

You will leave Munnar and head down through Eravikulam and the Sandlewood forest of Marayoor, traversing the world’s largest tea plantation and into Chinnar Wildlife sanctuary where wild elephants have been seen strolling across the road at times. You will enter into the state of Tamil Nadu, and cut across an area known as "The Coconut Belt" for the mass of coconut plantations, before climbing through 40 Hair Pin bends to the Tea Planters' Bungalow resort set amidst an organic tea estate, at more than 1,400 meters altitude in the Anamalai Hills. The air is clean and bison roam free. You will take a midnight jeep safari in search of panthers, lion tail macaques, wild boar, wild elephants, and Malabar squirrels.

Day 6: Anamalai Hills - Fort Cochin (215 kilometers / 133 miles)

You will set off after breakfast for the seven-hour ride through one of the thickest evergreen forests in India. Like venturing through the Amazon or canopied rainforests of Central Africa, this is a motorcycling experience which is not to be missed. After 80 kilometers, you'll reach Athirapally falls, known as "the Indian Niagara", where you'll stop for lunch and an explore before pressing on to Fort Cochin and the final stop by the shores of the Arabian Sea. You stay in a wonderful boutique hotel with pool for the last night and farewell dinner where beer is once more on the house.
