best road trips in india

Taking a road trip throughout India is a spectacular way to see and experience the true beauty of the country.  Road trips give you the freedom to stop in small, out of the way areas. These are things you would probably miss if you take another form of transportation during your travels. The best bike road trips in India are the ones that take you through the most beautiful highways routes with enough scope of detours to amazing hidden gems. There are many motorcycle and bikers groups in India who go on motorcycle tours in India. You can join these rides or you could just take off on a solo ride.

Each of these road trips can also be done by cars but the exhilaration of a thumping bike is unparalleled. You can drive the route as quickly as you wish, or you can revel in the quiet landscape in the remote areas.  So what are you waiting for?

Delhi to Manali to Leh

Delhi to Manali to Leh Road Trip

This approximately 1,019 km long road trip is arguably the best bike road trips in India! You must read the travelogue of our epic road trip to the Highest Blogger Meet in Khardung La here and here, especially the planning phase to have a better idea of how to go about planning one. You would take more than a day if you drive non-stop. But as much as you would want to reach your destination, you are in the Himalayas and you would want a shot or two of the awe-inspiring vistas.  You should be careful on the roads as you approach Leh. Also, you must give yourself time to acclimatize. Better still you can join our curated bike trip to Ladakh in June.  If the mountains are not really what you are looking for, you could check out many other road trip destinations from Delhi.

This is one of the popular motorcycle tours in India. The route is about 454 kilometres long and takes just under eight hours. There are many interesting places to see in the Kutch region, besides the Rann of Kutch. The White Expanse of the desert you see at the end of one of the best bike road trips in India mesmerizes you. Especially during sunsets and full moon nights. If you go on the road trip during Nov-Feb, you can also visit the Rann Utsav.  We would highly recommend that you visit the place during the festival to see the place at its best. In fact, if you have not visited the place yet, you can join us on a bike trip to the Kutch in February. There are many beautiful places you can see in Gujarat and most of them are at driving distance from Ahmedabad.

Get a feel of the hinterlands when you go on the most popular and best bike road trips in India from Kolkata. There are many road trip destinations from Kolkata within Bengal. Nonetheless, every Kolkatan has gone on a trip to Puri, the famous beach town in Odisha. This is a favorite winter getaway and Odisha really amazes you with its beauty during the cold season. If you leave Kolkata at dawn, you could take a breakfast break at Balasore. The road conditions are good and you can actually make it to Puri in time for lunch.

Chennai to Kanyakumari

The East Coast Road down south is, by far, one of the most scenic routes. Many motorcycle tours in India take you from Chennai to Mahabalipuram or even Pondicherry. However, if you want to see the untouched beauty of coastal Tamil Nadu, head further down towards Kanyakumari. We took a trip down the ECR Road and found the most interesting places along the way. If you are looking to go on a road trip from Chennai, this is by far the best bike road trips in India you could plan. If you are wondering where to go, you can check our Coastal Towns of Tamil Nadu road trip package.

There are many other motorcycle tours in India that you can go on across the country. You can choose some of the best locations for your trip here or just tell us when you want to go here. We will shortlist the destinations and plan one of the best bike road trips in India for you. The smaller villages, the out of the way landscape, and the untouched beauty are adventures that no one should ever pass upon.
