Landing in Guwahati | Touchdown Guwahati
Landing at Guwahati in the first half, this pre-journey pit stop is to ensure all the bikes are in perfect condition, to introduce the riders to the group, explain minute details of the route, and to have a thorough ride briefing before starting the tour.
Guwahati to Bomdila
Guwahati to Bomdila has various routes. We choose the most scenic one and run parallel to the Bhutan border through the golden fields of Assam before we start ascending the hills of Arunachal Pradesh, taking a newly built road which makes for a fantastic drive and even better views. Plenty twisties and country roads to get accustomed to the group and bike.
Bomdila to Tawang
Bomdila to Tawang gets interesting as we leave the city and cross Dirang. The valley is mind blowing and will make you relax and forget any tiredness from day 1. Enroute stop at Nyukmadung War Memorial and pay our respect to the fallen soldiers there. Next, we stop at the mighty Se la and soak in the gorgeous views on and around it.
Tawang to Bumla to Tawang
We head to the beautiful Sungester Lake, also known as the Madhuri lake of Koyla (the Bollywood movie). Finally, we head towards the India-China border at Bum-la and spend some time at the border before starting our return journey to Tawang.
Tawang to Bomdila
We follow the same route back, however, make a few more stops enroute and soak in the beauty of the Dirang valley, Sela and Jung waterfalls.
Bomdila to North Lakhimpur
This could be the longest day of riding as we leave Arunachal behind and enter Assam. While the ride will be long, each mile only gets us closer to the mighty Brahmaputra.
North Lakhimpur to Aalo
The day gets super interesting and intriguing as we enter Arunachal. The roads to Aalo are under construction adding to another testing challenge for the riders as we will try to match timings to race ahead of road closures.
Aalo to Menchuka
Aalo to Menchuka route shows the true scenic beauty of Arunachal. When compared to Tawang and Bomdila, the vegetation is different and brings in a more soothing effect. The rough roads offer plenty waterfalls and viewpoints to enjoy.
Menchuka
Mechukha or Menchukha (In Memba dialect, 'Men' means Medicine, 'Chu' means Water streams, rivers, etc. and 'Kha' means Snow; Meaning "the land blessed with medicinal snow-fed water- river and streams”) and as the name suggests, it’s a mystical land and has been very close to every rider who visits the place.
Menchuka to Aalo
We follow the same route back with minor detours to keep it exciting.
Aalo to Majuli
Back into Assam, we ride the long highways before we are met with the beauty of Majuli that will enthral you and bring out the best of you. Mājuli or Majuli is a river island in the Brahmaputra River and mostly inhabited by Tribals. The culture of Majuli is unique, and it is also called the cultural capital of Assam.
Majuli
Explore the culture rich Majuli and spend the day shopping or resting by the mighty Brahmaputra.
Majuli to Guwahati
We ride via Kaziranga hoping to see a few wild animals while keeping an eye on the speed cameras.

Bike Preparation

We strongly recommend you inspect your motorcycle thoroughly. If you have made any changes recently, ride the bike for a short weekend trip before the tour onset. Head to the nearest Bajaj service centre in case of any concerns.

  • Inspect your suspension before the trip for any signs of leakage or wear out.
  • Check the rear swing-arm bush for wear and tear and replace if necessary.
  • Check your chain and rear sprocket for wear out – if it’s at the end of its life it’s better to change before the ride than after.
  • Make sure that your clutch is in order and adjusted properly without trace of any drag, slip, etc.
  • Check your battery and earthing connections. The demanding terrain and the riding conditions that you and the machine are likely to encounter on the route could further accentuate existing problems.
  • Check all cables for smooth operation if found rough and frayed, replace them.
  • Make a note of your motorcycles fuel consumption – this will help in planning fuel stops.
  • Tyres – make sure your tyres are in good condition. If they are worse for wear it’s better to change before the trip.
North East Special
  • This ride involves a good mix of highway miles and broken tarmac, translating to long hours in the saddle at various speeds, so a small discomfort can be amplified over time. For the bikes that have had any work done on the aspects that affect handling and stability, e.g., accidental repairs, etc., please take a trial run. Check for wheels running straight, chain tension, handlebar straightness, etc.
  • Stock tyres with good thread life will work, however, if you are keen you could try out various dual sport tyres.
  • Phone mount and USB charger is advisable as it will aid in navigation and phone charging on the move.
