Bike Tour Details

The North-East region of India has always been one of the most elusive in terms of motorcycle adventure rides. Comprising of ‘The Seven Sister States’ of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura, there is so much on offer here for adventure motorcyclists like us.

Covering an area of 255,511 square kilometers, this region has a halo effect on local as well as international motorcycle riders. Its remoteness, wilderness and lack of mainstream motorcycling mentions is what draws riders to it.

This ride will take us to 2 World Heritage National Parks; Kaziranga and Manas. These are the last active breeding grounds for the One Horned Indian Rhino. We will then leave the plains and venture in the green, rolling Khasi hills, which were affectionately called the Scotland of the East by the British, during the time of the Raj. The Khasi, are the dominant tribe in this region. They take cleanliness very seriously and good effects can be seen all around. The Khasi are known to give back 10 times of whatever you give them. So it pays to be respectful and warm with them. The Khasi people are sandwiched between Assam in the North and Bangladesh in the South, they don’t have a written script, yet they have managed to retain their unique identity. This can be seen in the way they dress, the food they eat and the houses they build. Assam and Meghalaya are good places to start exploring culturally diverse North East region of India.

Red Panda Adventures is one of the few established and well-known motorcycle tour operators in this region, catering to local as well as international riders. We have a very local team and know this region well, allowing us to serve you and organize our rides with the utmost care and planning.

Pricing is based on twin sharing basis (2 riders, 1 room). For single occupancy (1 rider, 1 room), please email us on trips@redpandaadventures.com

Motorcyle Tour Itinerary

Tour Itinerary


Arrive in Guwahati
Meet and greet with all riders at the airport and shuttle to the hotel. Introduction to the motorcycle and ride briefing. Short cultural presentation. Welcome kit distribution.
Guwahati to Kohora
Guwahati to Kohora is 209 kms / 4 hrs ride. We start the ride early, so that we get on to the highways before Guwahati wakes up. The highways are generally in good shape and they are perfect to get to know the motorcycle you will be riding for the next 10 days. After riding for about 2 hours, we will stop to enjoy some refreshing tender coconuts. Unlike tender coconuts that grow on the sea shore, these are grown on the banks of the Brahmaputra and are very sweet. The last 40 km to Kohora passes thru the Kaziranga National park. Therefore Speed limits are very low and strictly enforced. We should reach our resort by lunch time.
Kohora – Kaziranga-Kohora
Kaziranga National Park is spread over 430 square km. It is home to the world’s largest population of the One Horned Rhino (about 2,200 of them). This world heritage site also has elephant herds, wild water buffaloes, swamp deer and tigers. Watching a rhino in the wild is an experience that cannot be described. In addition to a jeep safari, one can also go on an old school elephant back safari. Safaris are held early in the morning as well as in the evenings.
Kohora to Shillong
Kohora to Shillong is 310 kms / 9 hrs ride. This route will take us thru some remote tea gardens and villages. This is also the day we will leave the plains and climb up the rolling hills of Meghalaya. We should reach Shillong just in time to see the western sky put on a sunset show.
Shillong to Cherrapunjee (via Laitlum Canyons)
Shillong to Cherrapunjee is 66km / 3hrs ride. Today is the day when you get to see the Khasi people in their traditional attire. Roads will be largely good, but we will take a detour to see the spectacular Laitlum Canyons. These canyons are also called the Grand Canyon of the East. We should reach Cherrapunjee by late afternoon. This will give us time to get used to the cold that sets in after sun set.
Till a few years back Cherrapunjee used to be the wettest place on earth. It’s also is full of surprises waiting to be explored. Ancient limestone caves, Living Root Bridges, Many spectacular water falls. These attractions will keep us busy all day.
Cherrapunjee to Dawki
Cherrapunjee to Dawki is 90 kms / 5 hrs ride. The river in Dawki is so clear, that one can count the pebbles on river bed. Boats on this river appear to be floating on air. We will also visit the cleanest village in Asia and get up-close to a Living Root Bridge. Roads will be narrow, with plenty of switch backs, blind turns and the jungle trying to fall over and consume the road. Riding slowly and observing jungle is the only way to make safe progress.
Cherrapunjee to Shillong (via Krang Shuri Waterfall)
Cherrapunjee to Shillong is 125km / 4 hrs ride. Krang Shuri water fall is one of Nature’s best show. The pool at the bottom of the waterfall is large and safe to take a dip. We will get some fantastic riding roads, full of twisties, great surface and hopefully very little traffic.
Shillong to Manas National Park
Shillong to Manas is 230 kms / 6 hrs ride. This highway between Shillong and Guwahati is a biker’s delight. No need to say more. After crossing the mighty Brahmaputra river, we will reach Manas by late afternoon. This area north the Bhramaputra is dominated by Indigenous people called Bodo. Contrary to the mainstream media narrative, Bodo are a peaceful agrarian society. Culturally very evolved and sophisticated (not in the western sense though). Folk dancers and musicians from a village near by, oblige to put on a cultural program around the born fire.
Manas National Park
This park is much smaller than Kaziranga, but it is home to some rodents that are found only here. Every winter heards short mountain elephants, migrate to from Bhutan, to escape the cold in the mountains of Bhutan. There is a resident population of Rhinos, deer, leopards etc. An Early morning Elephant back safari is probably one of the best ways to start the day, actually any day.We will also visit some very traditional Bodo family home in a village nearby. We also get to taste a very interesting Bodo wine, that they make at home
Manas to Guwahati
Manas to Guwahati is 140 kms / 4hrs ride. We can start late, and get to Guwahati by late afternoon. Spend the evening easing back in to urban life.
Depart from Guwahati
We will bid our good byes and drop you off at the airport. As you fly away, you will drift in the memories of the sensory extravaganza of the previous 11 days

Tour Review

Miriam Chelliah

One of the best experiences we've had. Bala is experienced and patient. For a rookie, finishing the Menchuka ride was a big deal. Came back with some love motorcycle skills. Loved every day of it.

On my bucket list, was an himalayan motorbike tour. My wish was fulfilled through Red Panda - and I had an adventure of a life time. Very experienced lead and sweep drivers, with back up 4 wheeled vehicle for any emergency. Curated stays in relatively unknown, spartan but hygienic and comfortable places. Loved staying inside a plastic tent and also Bamboo house. Very well done by our Captain Balaji!! Thank you.

A leap of faith was what it was.. I had not ridden a bike for last 25 years and this hum drum of a covid lockdown was wearing me down. So when Bala sent an WA invitation to ride with him for 8 days of #khukriride, it ignited a spark (pun intended).Those 8 days in Jan 2021 spent riding with Bala & Jojo across NE himalayas were full of thrill, splendor, captivating & enervating. Meticulous planning right from bike selection to route planning, excellent homestays interspersed with local knowledge and intel made this ride a memorable one. I would strongly recommend this ride to anyone who has some interest in riding and adventure. Am sure if I can do it at my age..anyone can. My best wishes to Bala & his team at #redpandaadventures. You are helping many arm chair enthusiasts like me realise a new meaning of life.

Red Panda Adventures, Thank you very much for giving me an experience of a life time. The entire expedition as I would like to call it was well managed with a lot of passion, enthusiasm and most importantly servicing the smallest need of every participant. Bala ji is a very knowledgeable, kind hearted and a humble person and an excellent host and a great sport, am sure he misses the “Tawang special” we gave him. Big thank you to Hrushikesh for having my back and making sure I completed every obstacle on my way, and not to forget Lama ji a wonderful person with such positive energy. A big shout out to all the people who took care of us in a very special way at all the Home stays. Highly highly recommend Red Panda Adventures
