D1 / Arrive in Delhi

Your first day is all about a smooth arrival in Delhi: you’re met at the airport and transferred to the hotel in the city centre. Your room is available from noon onwards. You have two options: you can stay at the hotel and rest after the flight or go out and explore India’s bustling capital.

D2 / Delhi - Mandawa - 109 miles

We begin our journey in the direction of Shekhawati, a region famous for its majestic Haveli. First, we leave Delhi by private vehicle to join the starting point and our motorcycles. We then enter the "Land of Kings" by small country roads, offering us great sights of the rural nature from our first rounds of wheels.

After getting out of the Venice of India, our southernmost point of the trip, we cross pretty landscapes, inhabited by simple peasant communities. We ride towards Chittorgarh, the ancient historic capital of the Mewar Kingdom. We visit the extraordinary fortress city and we cross another rural region with rocky reliefs towards the east of the Aravallis.

D9 / Chittorgarh - Bundi - 77 miles

Today we ride to Bundi, a small off-the-beaten-track town with a charming Indian atmosphere. Its fort and palace are famous for their murals, considered the finest in Rajasthan. We set off on a perfect highway; beautiful, smooth and clean roads, without traffic.

D10 / Bundi - Ranthambore - 77 miles

We set off on our motorcycles towards Ranthambore National Park. But before that, we will have to endure inevitable worn-out roads on the first third of the stage. In the late afternoon, we take a jeep safari in the middle of crocodiles, birds, sambars, monkeys, and of course the star of the area, the tiger, that we may have the chance to see.

D11 / Ranthambore - Jaipur - 93 miles

We leave Ranthambore in the morning and head to the mythical "pink city": Jaipur, the capital of Rajasthan. Here you need a little time to wander and eventually, do a little shopping (the city is known for its many forms of crafts). We ride today mainly on "highways", fast, in pretty good condition, without too much traffic, to reach Jaipur in the middle of the afternoon.

D12 / Jaipur - Alwar - 93 miles

It's our last day on the bikes. In the morning, we visit the impressive Amber Fort, located a few miles north of Jaipur: a fantastic way to end this tour! Then, we take our Royal Enfields on the narrow, sometimes mountainous roads to Alwar Fort.
