We start our Royal Enfield India motorcycle road trip in DelhiDelhi 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. Our first day is spent relaxing and preparing for the ride ahead.
On Day 2, we cover a distance of 250 kms 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.
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 8, We descend to Tattapani.  It is situated on the right bank of river Sutlej. In local language, ‘Tattapani’ means ‘hot water’. The place is famous for its hot water springs. The spring water is said to have curative powers that provide relief from ailments like joint pain, fatigue, stress relief, and poor blood circulation, and reduces fat and skin diseases.
Day 10 is a longer ride to the town of Mandi from where we cross over to the Kangra Valley. The town has mythological and historical significance and boasts of a unique temple architecture. It is referred to as Chhota Kashi (Little Benaras) as there are many ancient temples in the city and on the banks of river Beas.
Day 12 sees us taking an exhilarating ride as we gain altitude again to reach Dharamshala and Mcleodganj. The Dalai Lama's residence and the headquarters of the Central Tibetan Administration (the Tibetan government in exile) are in Dharamshala. Traditionally known for Kangra green tea, Dharamshala now produces all teas including black tea, green tea, oolong tea and white teas, in addition to the popular Kashmiri Kahwa and Masala Chai. McLeod Ganj is known as "Little Lhasa" or "Dhasa" (a short form of Dharamshala used mainly by Tibetans) because of its large population of OVERVIEW Tibetans. McLeod Ganj was named after Sir Donald Friell McLeod, a Lieutenant Governor of Punjab; the suffix ganj is a common Hindi word for "neighbourhood". Lord Elgin, the British Viceroy of India (1862–63), liked the area so much that at one point he suggested it be made the summer capital of India. He died at Dharamshala while on a tour there and lies buried at the St. John in the Wilderness at Forsyth Ganj, just below McLeod Ganj. His summer residence, Mortimer House, was acquired by the Government of India to house the official residence of the Dalai Lama.
On Day 13, we travel 200 kms to reach Nalagarh, a beautiful hill station in Solan district of Himachal Pradesh. The Nalagarh Valley is a long band surrounded by the spurs of the outer Himalayas to its north-east and the heavily eroded range of the Shivaliks in the south and west.
Day 14 of our Incredible India road journey sees us riding our magnificent Royal Enfield 500cc motorcycles back to Delhi, where we had started this amazing adventure.
