Touch down Bhopal
Dominar Riders assemble for a pre-journey pit stop. At the assembly, riders introduce themselves to each other. All the bikes will undergo a thorough inspection. A detailed briefing session about the journey ahead will follow.
Bhopal to Pachmarhi via Bhojpur - Bhimbetka Caves
We start early from Bhopal to head to Pachmarhi, the only hill station in Madhya Pradesh. One the way, we head back in time to pass Bhimbetka Caves. The rock shelters here exhibit the earliest traces of human life in India through ancient rock paintings. Bhimbetka rock art is considered as one of the oldest petroglyphs in the world.
Pachmarhi to Jabalpur via Bhedaghat
The ride to Bhedaghat promises a day of cherishing experiences as we start at the entrance of the most scenic forests in India – Satpura. The long ride is also a scenic escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Waterfalls offer a soothing welcome to the jungles, home to leopards and bisons. The marble rock valleys of Bhedaghat offer a great view of the Narmada River. Bhedaghat is also known for Dhuandar Falls (Dhua means smoke and Dhar means flow). It is an apt name as the water falls from a height of 98 feet
Jabalpur to Amarkantak via Shahpura
Day 3 offers an enriching ride of varied experiences. The rocky hilltop city of Jabalpur overlooks many temples and forts. The exit from this Industrial town takes us to the Pilgrim Town of Amarkantak. This region has a unique natural heritage as it sits on the meeting point of Vindhya and the Satpura Ranges
Amarkantak to Panna Via Raneh Waterfalls
We start the day from the Pilgrim Town to head to Panna. Panna is known as the Jewel in the Crouwn and famous for its ancient temples and diamond mines. The famous Panna National Park attracts tourists from all over India for its tiger sightings. On the way, we pass Raneh Waterfalls, also known as the Grand Canyon of India.
Panna to Khajuraho via Khajuraho Temple – Raneh Waterfalls – Kandariya Mahadev Temple
One Day 5, we head to Khajauraho. The majestic lands of Khajuraho have a lot to offer. Hence, we try to make the most of this historical landmark in Indian Civilization. We explore the splendour of the intricate statues of the Khajuraho Temples. We even witness one of the best examples of temples preserved from the medieval period in India – The Kandariya Mahadeva Temple, which is also known as ‘The Great God of the Cave.’
Khajuraho to Orchha via Rai Praveen Mahal - Kalprvrish - Raja Mahal - Jahangir Mahal
Tell the world that we are on our way to meet the Queen today. We continue our ride from Khajuraho on Day 6 and head to Orchha. It is a famous tourist destination and is known for the exploits of Rani Jhansi. On our way, we get a glimpse of ancient royalty as we pass many palaces and mahals one after the other. The checklist includes Pravin Rai Mahal, Raja Mahal, Jahangir Mahal and may be more, all dating back to the 16th and 17th century.
Orchha to Bhopal via Sanchi Stupa
Day 7 has another unforgettable experience on offer. After a rendezvous with the exploits of Rani Jhansi, we head back to Bhopal. On our way, a spiritual side of Madhya Pradesh awaits our presence at Sanchi. The Great Stupa at Sanchi is one of the oldest stone structures in India, and an important monument of Indian Architecture. Here is a fun fact. Sanchi Stupa is depicted on the reverse side of the Indian currency note of ₹200 to signify its importance to Indian cultural heritage
Departure from Bhopal
All good things come to an end. However, the memories stay forever. We end the fascinating Madhya Pradesh Tour here in Bhopal. Riders head back to their own lives taking unforgettable memories along with them..

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.
Madhya Pradesh 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.
