Delhi straddles two worlds: the old constantly attempting to come to terms with the new. Old Delhi, once the capital of Mughal India, is a labyrinth of narrow lanes lined with crumbling havelis and formidable mosques. In contrast, the imperial city of New Delhi built by the British comprises spacious, tree-lined avenues and imposing government buildings. The city’s importance lies not just in its past glory as the seat of empires and magnificent monuments, but also in the rich and diverse cultures. We take a short coach ride to Meerut from where we start the journey the next day. Day 2 sees us riding 170 km in the hills to a quaint little place called Lansdowne. Lansdowne is unlike other hill stations as it is well connected with motorable roads but remote in its own way. It is situated at an altitude of 1,706 m above sea level surrounded with thick oak and blue pine forests in the Pauri Garhwal district of Uttarakhand state. Lansdowne is an ideal location for eco-tourism as it is well preserved by the Government of Uttarakhand and the Garhwal Rifles. On Day 3, we ride 170 km to the world-renowned Jim Corbett Tiger Reserve established in 1936 as India’s first national park, and which covers 1318 sq km of wild forests. It’s named after the legendary British hunter Jim Corbett (1875–1955), who brought this region international fame with his book The Man-Eaters of Kumaon. Greatly revered by local people for killing tigers that preyed on people, Corbett eventually shot more wildlife with his camera than with his gun and became a prominent voice for conservation. Day 4 is a 100 km ride to Ranikhet.  Queen’s prairie is the literal meaning of the place Ranikhet. Known for being the base for Kumaon Regiment, it is situated around 90 Km from Jim Corbett National Park at a height of 1,869 metres above the sea level. The place is worth visiting as it gives a scenic view of the giant Himalayan snow covered peaks. Day 5 is a short 60 km ride another quaint Raj-era hill station of Ramgarh. On Day 6 we ride 140 km on our way back to Delhi to halt at Moradabad, famous for its brassware and handicrafts. Day 7 sees us completing our India Motorcycle One-Week tour through the hills and jungles of the Kumaon region as we ride 170 km to reach Delhi.
