This tour is a truly opulent adventure trip that combines the real highlights of Rajasthan. Each day you will discover more about Rajasthan’s rich culture and heritage as you ride through some of the most idyllic rural areas visiting mighty forts and impressive palaces. You will be spoiled by the stunning surroundings, the vast desert highways, the colorful culture, the clear blue skies, and bright sunshine along the way. So go get your license and book your tour now!
You will stay in centuries-old forts, ancient palaces, and luxury desert camps. There is no point coming to Rajasthan and not experiencing what it has to offer. It’s unlike anywhere else in India when it comes to offering luxury accommodation. The rooms are allocated on a twin sharing basis. If you are traveling with a friend or partner, Nomadic Knights will do their best to accommodate you accordingly. Kindly inform Nomadic Knights' team about the matter before your tour starts.
After a short journey, you will arrive at your starting point hotel from Delhi airport by coach or taxi. You can relax in the sunshine by the pool and sip your favorite drink as you unwind after your long journey.
Today you will be introduced to your Royal Enfield that you will ride for the duration of the trip. You'll be setting off on a short warm up ride crossing Rajasthan to Neemrana. You will treat the trip as a warm up to let you get used to riding your bike on the legendary Indian roads.
You will experience a good mix of highway and country roads as you head deeper into Rajasthan to Mandawa. Mandawa was originally a trading outpost for the ancient caravan routes that stopped here from China and the Middle East.
This will be your first big riding day of the trip as you will cruise across the desert terrain taking in the sand dune scenery of Osian. Osian is perched on the edge of the mighty Thar desert where you can savor the tranquillity of Rajasthan in all its glory.
You will set off on your ride to the westernmost corner of Rajasthan to visit a city that has long been considered one of India’s most treasured settings, Jaisalmer. Jaisalmer could best be described as an eclectic confusion of camels, spices, chaos, and color.
You will be spending your rest day in Jaisalmer, locally known as “The Golden City". This moniker can be attributed to the fact that yellow sand combined with sandstone used in every structure of the city creates a shining golden halo.
You will set off early heading towards almost the center point of Rajasthan. For the night, you will stay in the majestic city of Jodhpur, commonly known as the “Blue City” due to the vivid blue-painted houses around the Mehrangarh Fort.
On the road to Ranakpur, you will witness the most beautiful rural scenes as you see small children taking baskets of midday meals for their fathers working in the fields beside their Sakia (Persian Wheel).
You will ride from Ranakpur to Udaipur. Many people describe Udaipur as the Venice of the East. Some even call it the City of Lakes. You will see every conceivable mode of transport, from big expensive cars and buses at one end of the street, down to rickshaws, horse-drawn carts, and camels all sharing the same road space.
By now you will be well used to riding your beloved Bullet on the roads of India. It’s the only place in the world where you can blow your horn and the cows move off the road. From the lovely Udaipur, you will gently head to Pushkar.
A real treat lies in store for you as you will have such a scenic ride where fields of mustard crops fill the landscape for mile after mile as far as the eye can see to Ranthambore National Park.
You will have a day off from riding as you rest in Ranthambore National Park. You will head out on an early morning safari as the chances of spotting a tiger in the wild at Ranthambore are amongst the best in India. Recent reports would suggest that there are around 52 tigers in the park.
A leisurely start will suit you on this day as you will have an easy ride. You will leave the national park and head to the capital city of Rajasthan, Jaipur.
This will be the last day of riding as you head back to your starting destination at Manesar but taking the scenic route through Sariska National Park. You will feel sad, no doubt, however, it won't last very long as you prepare yourselves for your last night party which will continue into the wee small hours of the morning.
You will check out of your accommodation and head to Delhi airport.
Alex is the founder, owner, and guide of Nomadic Knights. Anything that is related to a motorbike has become his passion in life. He relocated to India in 2008 and continued spending his days sharing the history and treasures of the country with people who want to meet themselves on the road and discover their own piece of heaven. He's taken a hundred people with him on his motorbike adventures.
During this tour, you will visit and pass quite a lot of well-known cities, sites, and roads in India, especially in Rajasthan. Here are some of the highlights of your motorcycle tour:
Ranakpur is famous for its undulating ground, barren wilderness, date trees, and terraced fields complete this awesome spectacle where life has not changed for centuries.
Nothing can take away the natural beauty of the elevated hills and mirror-like lakes of Udaipur. They are a perfect backdrop for a city that is regarded as the most romantic in the world. It is a constant barrage of information, it has vivid color and has many differing cultures where the unbelievably ancient rubs elbows with the very modern. The hotel used in the movie “The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel” is situated just outside the city.
This national park is dotted amongst the mustard fields and crumbling ruins. It is way more beautiful than anyone could ever describe. Some of the centuries-old ruins are still inhabited to this day. The landscape is dominated by the formidable 10th century, Ranthambore Fort. It's a huge structure that contains ruined pavilions, splendid monuments, and 3 Hindu temples. Tigers are regularly spotted in the ruins.
Jaipur is also known as “The Pink City" in reference to its distinctly colored buildings. It has stunning architecture, fantastic food, great shopping, grand palaces, and wonderfully cultivated gardens. The city is surrounded by rolling hills and mountains and the area. As a whole, it is known for its perfect weather. It's no wonder Jaipur was ranked by Condé Nast as the 7th best place to visit in Asia. However, the beautiful architecture and pink painted avenues are really what make Jaipur special.
Whilst you are encouraged to try as many different dishes as possible, Nomadic Knights understands that Indian food on a daily basis is not to everyone’s liking. Taking this into consideration, your breakfast will usually consist of toast, butter, jam, scrambled eggs, porridge, fruit, tea, and coffee. While your dinner will usually be Indian. The food will be a mixture of vegetarian and non-vegetarian.
"I took the India's Lost World trip. This is not an adventure for the faint-hearted. It is extremely demanding but at the same time rewarding. I have found that the harder the trip the more memorable it is. My trip lasted for 14 days with 2000 kilometers of some of the most unforgiving roads, beautiful scenery, friendly people of The Seven States of North East India. Do you want something different? Go sign up for this mind-blowing adventure!"

"I have to say that the trip I did with you lads last year in North India was absolutely amazing, most of which I have to say was down to you. You’re definitely up for the crack and you know your way around the Himalayas. Any problems we had, you were there to sort them out. I will be booking another trip with you this year."
