Even the most die-hard rider would admit that summer isn’t the most ideal time to ride a motorcycle in the UAE. Temperatures soar to around 45-degree Celsius during the day and rides need to be very early in the morning, if they begin at all.
However, this time of the year is a wonderful time to head out to various locations outside the UAE for a ride where the weather is a bit forgiving. One of those locations is India. Given its proximity to the UAE and the diverse terrain on offer, India is becoming a go-to destination for many riders from the middle east. India has some of the best motorcycling roads in the world. The Himalayan roads are considered some of the best and the most scenic when it comes to adventure riding and most of these roads are accessible from June to September when the snow in the upper Himalayas melts away.
Some quick research will highlight that the northern states of Himachal and Jammu and Kashmir in India feature some of the most stunning landscape as well as quite a few highest points in the world. Riders here can ride to the highest motorable road in the world, the highest village in the world, the highest gas station in the world, etc. Even though there are contradicting reports online on whether or not these places are the highest in the world, the fact remains that riding for 10 to 12 days at an average altitude of 12,000 feet above sea level is an accomplishment in itself.
If you are looking at a Himalayan getaway or to ride in India and experience its rich and varied heritage, culture and cruising, take a look at Red Panda Adventures, one of India’s leading adventure touring company. The team at Red Panda Adventures have over two decades of experience riding in India and they cover almost every region with their tour offerings.
Red Panda Adventures is known for their premium guided tours and being a company run by experienced adventure riders who themselves met at one of these adventure tours, they are known for keeping their client satisfaction in mind.
Riders get to pick between Royal Enfield Classic 500s or Royal Enfield Himalayans for their rides. The pricing seems right given the way the tours are operated and they always keep their groups small. Balaji Devnathan, the co-founder of Red Panda Adventure goes on to add that keeping the ride small helps deliver a better experience, helps keep the rides more engaging and delivers a premium and fulfilling feel to the riders.
