We'll also take you through some safety precautions to ensure that all our riders have a great time with no complications during the adventure ahead.

  • Day 2:Siliguri - Pelling

    Get ready for an early start! We will be riding to Pelling via Jorethang along the mighty Teesta River, which is 309 kilometres long! The towering Himalayas and Kanchenjunga can be seen from close quarters once we reach Pelling. It's also forms a base for trekkers and other adventurers, who undertake the strenuous and arduous treks in West Sikkim. The land around Pelling is still virgin territory and is bathed with alpine vegetation and numerous waterfalls line the hillside. In the winter months, Pelling is sometimes covered with a beautiful blanket of snow.

  • Day 3: Pelling - Ravangla - Kewzing

    Our ride for today will take us through beautiful, winding roads that overlook the valleys and the mighty Kanchenjunga as we make our way to Ravangla. We have a treat in store for you, as we will be riding to one of the most historic places in Sikkim, the huge Buddha statue at the Buddha Park, also known as Tathagata Tsal. This statue stands at 130 feet high and has become an important place of pilgrimage for Buddhists. There are also many famous monasteries nearby to visit. We then head to the village of Kewzing, where we will be spending the night.

  • Day 4: Kewzing - Gangtok

    Today's journey will lead us to Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim. As we bid adieu to Kewzing, we kick start the most scenic ride of our trip. We'll make our way through thick forests, past water crossing and waterfalls. On the way, we'll even enjoy riding past one of the many famous tea estates of the state. Our journey today will not be a quick one, as we'll take our time to truly enjoy Mother Nature's pristine beauty. Once we arrive in Gangtok, we park our mighty steeds and prepare ourselves for city life.

  • Day 5: Gangtok

    It's time to give ourselves and our bikes a break, and we spend the day exploring the many treasures Gangtok has to offer. If you're looking for some spiritual intervention, you can head to one of the many Buddhist monasteries in the state to learn more about the people of Sikkim and their way of life. You can also appreciate the beauty of nature at the Saramsa Garden and the Jawaharlal Nehru Botanical Garden. As you're wandering around the city, don't forget to feast on some traditional thukpa and momos.

  • Day 6: Gangtok - Lachen

    We leave the city behind, as we wake up ready for another day of riding. We make our way from Gangtok to Lachen. The literal meaning of Lachen is 'Big Pass', and Lachen offers a perfect retreat to relax and escape from the daily trap of city life. Famous for its vast valleys, Lachen is the base camp for the two main trekking camps of Sikkim, Chopta Valley and Muguthang Valley. If you're lucky enough to visit during the summer, you will get a chance to witness the yak race in the Thangu Valley. Must visit places in Lachen include Chopta Valley, which is a shutterbug's paradise, and the Gurudongmar Lake, is one of the highest lakes in the world, which is considered sacred by both Buddhists and Hindus.

  • Day 7: Lachen - Gurudongmar Lake - Lachung

    Enjoy a long ride today and explore some of the sights Sikkim has to offer. We make our way from Lachen to the gorgeous Gurudongmar Lake. This magnificent water body is one of the highest lakes in the world, and is located at an altitude of 5,430 metre. The lake is named after Guru Padmasambhava, also known as Guru Rinpoche, who was the founder of Tibetan Buddhism who visited the lake in the 8th century. The next section of our journey takes us down to Lachung, which is at an elevation of about 2,900 metre and sits at the confluence of the Lachen and Lachung Rivers.Lachung has been described as the "most picturesque village of Sikkim" by the British explorer Joseph Dalton Hooker in The Himalayan Journal.

  • Day 8: Lachung - Gangtok via Kabi Lungchok

    Today, we head back to the capital city of Gangtok. During our long, scenic ride, we will have an opportunity to stop at a historic destination in Sikkim called the Kabi Lungchok. This is where a "Treaty of Blood Brotherhood" was signed between the Lepchas, who were part of the ethnic tribal caste of Sikkim, and the Bhutias, the immigrants from southern Bhot. There are stone pillars that mark where the treaty was executed. After our historic stop, we get back on out steeds and ride into Gangtok.

  • Day 9: Gangtok

    It's another day in Gangtok and another much-needed rest day for us and our bikes. We can wake up at leisure today, and enjoy a hearty breakfast as well. Today we'll undertake an easy hour-long journey to the Rumtek Monastery. This peaceful Buddhist structure boasts some spectacular architecture that we can admire as we walk through the lush gardens that surround it. We then make our way back to Gangtok to get a good night's rest.

  • Day 10: Gangtok - Gnathang Valley via Nathu La Pass

    We leave Gangtok, and an hour later we find ourselves at the Nathu La Pass that connects Sikkim to Tibet. This pass is 4,310 metres above the sea level, and forms a part of an offshoot of the ancient Silk Road. Gnathang Valley or Nathang Valley, is popularly called the "Ladakh of East India", and is considered to be one of the most beautiful places on the Old Silk Route. Surrounded by snow-capped hills and mountain landscapes, the Chinese Watch Towers on Jelep La are clearly visible from the Gnathang Valley.

  • Day 11: Gnathang Valley - Siliguri

    It's our last day of riding, and we've got a long journey ahead of us. We start our bikes and leave the Gnathang Valley as we make our way to Zuluk, a picturesque village that sits beside a winding road at a height of 10,000 feet. Zuluk was once an important transit point on the historic silk route from Tibet to India, and can be found on the rugged terrain of the lower Himalayas in East Sikkim. After this stop, we will ride through the famous loops on our way back to Siliguri.

  • Day 12: Depart Siliguri

    As we end our tour, we will have a small ceremony to commemorate all of your hard work and the adventure that we have just had. Then it's time to say goodbye to your new friends as you get ready to leave.
