The wild and remote lands of north-east India – one of the least explored and most culturally diverse places on the planet – will take centre stage on a unique ‘out of your comfort zone’ motorbike tour offered by Nomadic Knights in March, 2023. Australians and Kiwis can save US$500 per person on the adventure tour, if booked by 31 August 2022.
The 14-night journey will see travellers ride Royal Enfield motorbikes alongside remote lush green mountains, raging waterfalls, dramatic landscapes, secret 20km long underground caves and tribes who still adhere to their ancient traditions to this day.
Due to their remoteness and turbulent history, India’s north-eastern states were closed off for many years to foreigners but are now beginning to be explored by adventurous and intrepid travellers, and a motorbike trip is the perfect way to journey through and experience the secluded ‘Lost World’ of India.
The tour embraces the mighty Brahmaputra River and the hard-to-reach, less-visited Indian states of Assam, Arunachal Pradesh, Nagaland, Manipur, Mizoram, Tripura and Meghalaya which border Bhutan, Burma, Bangladesh and Tibet.
Beginning in Guwahati, India, on 18 March 2023, the tour will see riders journeying past cows, monkeys, Tuk Tuks and beautiful mountain views. An interesting cultural stop on the 14-night tour will be to the site of the WW2 ‘Battle of the Tennis Court’, where Indian and British soldiers fought together against invaders. Every 100kms or so, everything changes in terms of faces, cuisine, culture, religion, tradition, and language, making the region one of the most diverse places on Earth.
Along the journey, travellers will stay in hotels, inns and resorts and enjoy delicious and authentic chai tea. The route will eventually take guests back to their starting point at Guwahati.
* The 14-night ‘India’s Lost World’ ride begins on 18 March 2023, and is available for US$4,480 for riders and US$3,980 for pillion passengers, including the US$500 discount if booked by 31 August 2022. Use the code ‘LOST500’ when booking.
