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 email@example.com
Riding in the North East is a lot of fun and promises adventure around every bend. Formed over millions of years, the Himalayas and it’s foothills command and deserve respect. We try our best to inform our clients of all the possible challenges they might face and also of all the key highlights and attractions along the way. However, the ultimate responsibility of safety lies with the riders. This trip is ideal for someone who has just started riding. The terrain, culture and the first few days may get a bit overwhelming at times, but stay with it to experience the rewards of adventure. We want you to soak in all the wonders this ride has to offer. So the schedule allows for many stops along the way for photographs and chit chat. There are a multitude of ‘chai’ stops along the way but we aim to start and finish the ride each day while the sun is up. The accommodation and food we provide is considered to be top of the line for this part of the world but we do expect our clients to set their expectations accordingly. Luxury in this part of the world is relative to the terrain and needs a bit of adjusting.
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 AdventuresRead More
Welcoming, knowledgeable, amazing adventure and helpful - can’t wait for the next panda adventure !
I can only highly recommend Red Panda Adventure. They took such good care of me and my family whilst we were touring from Chandigarh to Leh. Always accommodating, always caring - with wonderful places to explore and hotels to rest.
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. CheersRead More
