Do you want to travel to India? Are you looking for a less “traditional” holiday? Nomadic Knights offer motorcycle tours in India so you can explore the country in a unique way, riding a Royal Enfield.
Home to the Taj Mahal, one of the Seven Wonders of the World, India is a country rich in culture. It’s also the birthplace of Bollywood, the Indian Hindi-language cinema industry, which produces more films per year than any other country. You will get a taste of this culture on your motorcycle tour of India through the food we eat and the places we ride.
You could see the “Seven Sisters” on the India’s Lost World adventure, or ride along the “Cliffhanger” on the Himalayas Roof of India adventure. Prepare to face new challenges every day – these rides aren’t for the faint of heart. However, we will be with you all the way.
Read on to find out more about our mind-blowing motorcycle tours of India.
OUR INDIAN MOTORCYCLE TOURS
India’s Lost World
Visit all 7 states of North East India! Nomadic Knights are the only adventure company to offer a motorcycle tour India through all of the “Seven Sisters” states taking the routes we ride. Are you up for a proper adventure?
This tour starts in Guwahati then we ride through the states of Arunachal Pradesh, Assam, Meghalaya, Manipur, Mizoram, Nagaland, and Tripura. There will be some magnificent views along the way, and you will come into contact with diverse culture and travel through secluded jungles.
Explore a ‘lost world’ of ancient tribes, tiger infested forests and misty mountains in this motorcycle tour.
Himalayas Roof of India
The motorcycle tour of India starts and ends in Narkanda, a beautiful mountainous town which is a skiing resort in the winter. Some places along the way include: Manali, Keylong and Srinagar. You will also spend a rest day in Leh, an ancient city which was originally a stop for trading caravans but now has everything you need: massage parlours, cafes, barber shops, Buddhist sites, internet cafes, ATMs and market areas.
Along the way we explore high altitude desert, forested trails, glacier gouged gorges, lunar like valleys and ascend mountain peaks and passes at over 5kms high. Deep into the Kashmir Valley, you will tackle the ominous ‘Cliffhanger’. These are rough mountain tracks hewn into the side of vertical cliffs. Where you stay, where you ride and what you see on this motorcycle tour of India is utterly breathtaking.
Royal Enfield Bullet Trials Works Replica 500
This motorcycle is the perfect solution for the people who want to ride the legendary original Royal Enfield Bullet without the unreliability. It’s got plenty of power and stops without any drama, so it’s ideal for a motorcycle tour in India.
We have bought a new fleet of them which you can ride from 2020 onwards. You can swap over with someone else in the group and ride the Himalayan if you want to try both.
Royal Enfield Himalayan
The Himalayan is an ‘all-rounder’ built on an entirely new platform, sharing no parts with any previous Royal Enfield models. It’s ultra-reliable and great fun to ride. We’ve had no breakdowns since we started using them in 2016 for our motorcycle tours and we have almost 50 in our fleet.
It really is the perfect vehicle for our motorcycle tour of India. The rider feedback had been excellent and everybody that has ridden one has thoroughly enjoyed the experience.

India’s lost world…This is not an adventure for the faint hearted. It is extremely demanding but at the same time rewarding. I have found that the harder the trip the more memorable it is. Fourteen days, 2000kms of some of the most unforgiving roads, beautiful scenery, friendly people of The Seven States of North East India. You want something different?

“what a fantastic adventure”
Having just completed the India’s Lost World recce trip with Alex and his team, I have to say what a fantastic adventure it was. Traveling from one state into another and seeing how things change from the local people, the scenery and the food was a great experience. They say that travel broadens the mind, this trip will blow your mind.
“a vivid and life enhancing experience without a doubt”
Up here in the mountains you feel totally free, your mind needs to concentrate so much on staying alive, that it makes you feel alive, a vivid and life enhancing experience without a doubt. It was tough, it was magical, it was a real adventure. I salute you, my fellow adventurers, the times we shared can never to be taken away or forgotten.
