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.

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.
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.
The best you can get on two wheels...
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!
I totally got more than I had expected on their Enchanting Tawang ride in Feb 2019. With the help of their knowledge of the area, they had selected some of the most exciting routes which resulted in an intoxicating mix of Fun, Pleasure, Thrills on each day of the ride! All that you want out of something that is labelled as an Adventure Ride. The choice of the RE Himalayan as the motorcycles could not have been better either, it just did everything that you expect! Do I recommend Red Panda rides to other riders? - Whole heartedly. Will I take another ride with Red Panda Adventures myself? - Sure. I certainly hope that Red Panda cooks up some more equally exciting rides in that fabulous part of the world, called the Seven Sister states of India (NorthEast India).Read More
We did a thrilling ride through Arunachal Pradesh with Red Panda Adventures in Feb'19 on their Enchanting Tawang package. The Enfield Himalayan bikes arranged for the tour were just perfect for the terrain. The ride was well organized by genuine enthusiasts that form the team at Red Panda. The experience itself was truly magical, eschewing the usual touristy stuff for offbeat trails of which great memories are made. Would I do another tour with Red Panda? Well, all the riders on this trip are planning another tour with Red Panda at the first opportunity, and that should answer the question . Highly recommended with a double thumbs up from me!Read More
