We ride a trail through the heart of the steppe, which stretches to the horizon. At first flat and bare, dotted with a few nomads' yurts, the landscape starts undulating as we reach our camp. In early evening, a dip in the hot spring is much appreciated.

The riders' opinions

Amar Dixit
Rajasthan 2017-Team Bullet Raja

“Great ride, fantastic reliable support team, well thought through routes and itinerarary. Reliable motorcycles. Thrilling ride Luxurious hotels Great food. Passionate crew.”

Karl
A once in a lifetime experience!

“Made the 14 day Rajasthan rumble and it has been an amazing ride. We had breathtaking moments, crossing small villages and having chai teas with locals. Amazing hotels and sightseeing. If you a bike enthusiast and like exotic travels, you should do this trip. The guide and local staff managed it, not being a touristic thing.”

Matthew
Great staff/tour personnel

“Firstly, the airport experience on arrival was a little disjointed but of no great consequence. From thereon in wonderful people to deal with and our tour leader/support staff were excellent. The bikes were in good mechanical condition and we were fortunate that our group had a good skill set as there were some challenging roads. Notwithstanding though this trip would be suitable for most capable riders. No alcohol in the high altitudes is recommended. A very professional outfit all round.”
