We start our Royal India motorcycle road trip in Delhi. 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. Our first day is spent relaxing and preparing for the ride ahead.
On Day 3, we reach Bhimtal, a hill station famous for picturesque lake and weekend getaway break destination from Delhi.
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.
On Day 5, we cover a short distance of 90 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.
After a day of rest in the national park, we head to 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.
Ever since the Beatles rocked up at the ashram of the Maharishi Mahesh Yogi in the late '60s, Rishikesh has been a magnet for spiritual seekers. Today it styles itself as the ‘Yoga Capital of the World’, with a plethora of ashrams and all kinds of yoga and meditation classes. Most of this action is north of the main town, where the exquisite setting on the fast-flowing Ganges, surrounded by forested hills, is conducive to meditation and mind expansion. In the evening, an almost supernatural breeze blows down the valley, setting temple bells ringing as sadhus ('holy' men), pilgrims and tourists prepare for the nightly ganga aarti (river worship ceremony). You can learn to play the sitar or tabla; try hasya yoga (laughter therapy), practise meditation or take a punt on crystal healing. But Rishikesh is not all spirituality and contorted limbs; it's now a popular white-water rafting centre and Himalayan-trekking gateway.
Mussoorie, which we reach on Day 9 of our motorcycle tour, with its green hills, varied flora and fauna and a view of the Himalayas, is one of Uttarakhand’s most popular hill stations and is often called the Queen of the Hills. Established by the British in 1823, Mussoorie became hugely popular with the Raj set. The ghosts of that era linger on in the architecture of the churches, libraries, hotels and summer palaces.
After two night halts at Nahan and Karnal, we complete our circular journey to reach Delhi again. But that is not all for this amazing trip. Our final day in Delhi before we fly out, sees us in the midst of India's most famous and colourful festivals, Holi. The festival of colours, Holi, is the most vibrant of all Hindu festivals. It marks the end of winter in India and welcomes the spring season. On this festive day, people play with colours, meet and greet one another and create new beginnings.
