Tell us briefly about your 2 most memorable motorcycle tours?
Well Even a single second spend on my motorcycle is truly memorable for me and it is very touch to define the most memorable journeys as every journey is so unique and it brings out a whole new character inside you. For Answer sajke of this question. The way to Mana Pass ahead of Mana Village is along river Saraswati, which is only visible, for these 48 kms from its origin to its joining with Alaknanda in Mana. Getting a chance to ride along the river saraswati and see her path and touching her feet was really the best bestowed alm for all the riders who bent their heads for blessings at Deotal lake at a height of 18000 feet, which is the origin of river Saraswati, 1.5 KMs before the highest point on the road.The terrain and the climatic conditions tested every bit of spirit and courage which we possessed inside us.

It is not far. It is within reach.
Perhaps you have been on it since you were born, and did not know.
Perhaps it is everywhere - on water and land.”
