A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step. On 20th of May 2013, I took my first step from Bangalore as 'The Clueless Rider'. Seven months riding solo around the country, riding through every single state in the country I was overwhelmed by the kindness and the beauty I experienced. I think after this approximately 30,000 Km ride, I might have a slight clue now and from my experiences these are the 15 places that I suggest you definitely ought to visit on a India road trip.
George Aikara completed his MBA from IIM Indore. He was working in an advertising agency when he decided to do a solo all-India motorcycle trip. He likes to claim it's his spirit of adventure that made him go solo all across India but his friends (the few he has) believe nobody wanted to accompany him. His motorcycle ride took him to every state in India, parts of Nepal and Bhutan and one town in Burma.
At the moment, he sits idle in his home, trying to write a book based on his experiences and coming up with ingenious excuses to not get married.
Finally when you are in Leh, take your motorcycle and wander aimlessly. Wherever you go, you can be sure that it is going to be beautiful. This picture was taken somewhere near Leh, where I went off-road for a bit, some 20 Kms after Leh on the Leh - Manali highway. This is my most favourite picture from this trip.
