Bike Tour Details

Khukri” is the symbol of pride as well as a versatile weapon of choice for the brave Ghurkha people. These hardy, ethnic Nepali folk, have been taming these Himalayan foot hills for over a thousand years. Their bravery, valour and loyalty is legendary and recognised world-over. These people are also superb hosts.

The “Khukri Ride” is a tribute to the robust Ghurkha people.

This ride is specifically designed for Bikers aspiring to start Adventure Motorcycle Touring. It is also great for bikers who have gotten a bit rustic with age but would like to start riding again.

The Darjeeling Hills are under 6500ft., largely covered with dense Pine forests and scenic Tea Gardens. Roads are generally sealed and good. Some sections with steep inclines with hair-pin bends makes the ride very thrilling. Our route will also take us thru few shallow water crossings and smooth dirt roads.

Highlights:

Spectacular views of Mt Kanchenjunga, the third highest mountain in the world.

Pristine Pine forests and beautiful Tea gardens.

Local delicacies like Taipoh, Tongbah, Momos etc.

Opportunity to engage in relaxed discussions with locals, to know about their culture, heritage and legends.

Superb Motorcycling experience.

Tour Review

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

Friendly and experienced riders. If your’re looking for a premium motorcycle tour/experience and an adventure on two-wheels — hit up Red Panda Adventures. Their rides will help you “escape the ordinary”, and it is worth every penny!

What a great experience it's been renting a motorcycle from Red Panda. Inspite of the fact that I'd only signed up for renting a motorcycle, these guys went all out helping me plan the entire ride. Not just that, they were only a call away throughout the 20 days of my trip, helping me sort the minor troubles I faced with the motorcycle while on the road. For anyone who's planning to travel the northeast region of India, I absolutely and wholeheartedly recommend renting a motorcycle/signing up for an organised motorcycle tour with these guys. Thank you so much Bala & team for helping me plan a ride I'm gonna cherish for the rest of my life. Cheers
