Home to Mt Kanchenjunga - the highest mountain peak in India (3rd highest in the world at 8586 m), Sikkim is a state in the North East India bordering Nepal, Tibet and Bhutan. Sikkim offers both adventure and a rich cultural experience, owing to a strict tourism policy, basic road
infrastructure and a unique culture from the rest of India. Lush green alpine valleys, majestic waterfalls and old fashioned roads with a mix of tarmac roads which were once a part of the ancient silk route makes Sikkim a must do motorcycle travel destination. For you to enjoy the rough terrain, we will be using the Himalayan, new dual sports motorcycle from Royal Enfield. Due to proximity to Tibetan border, the State Tourism, and Indian Army do not allow foreign nationals beyond certain points in North, as well as in east Sikkim, which is why we provide this tour for Indian Nationals only.

Day 1 : ARRIVAL IN SILIGURI
Arrive in Siliguri by 12 noon. After checking you in into our designated hotel and meeting your co-riders, we head out for a short ride on the Himalayans so that you test the motorcycle you would be riding for the rest of the tour. While the mechanic makes final adjustments according to your riding style, the road captain briefs you on the route and day wise brief.
Day 2 : SILIGURI TO GANGTOK
We leave early in the morning and take the national highway, along Teesta river and say hello to the Himalayas. We reach Gangtok, the capital city of Sikkim by lunchtime. It is of utmost importance that you rest in the evening for better acclimatisation. In the meanwhile, we start the process of procuring your inner line permits and bike permits for the journey ahead
Day 3 : GANGTOK
This day is reserved for you to rest and enjoy the happening city of Gangtok, also voted as the cleanest city in India. You can head out for local sightseeing, or visit the markets for shopping and souvenirs. Visit the casinos to try your luck, or ride to the iconic Rumtek Monastery during the day while we sort out your permits.
Day 4 : GANGTOK TO LACHUNG
We start early in the morning to stop at Tashi Viewpoint just outside of Gangtok, to catch the majestic view of the Kanchenjunga range. As we start our sojourn to North Sikkim, the terrain becomes rough, but the views more rewarding. We refuel, at the last fuel station in Mangan and also pack spare fuel for all the bikes and head towards a small town nestled in the mountains - Lachung which is the district headquarters of North Sikkim. The highlight of the day are the several waterfalls we would cross and the evening campfire, with a beautiful view of the Himalayas and clear night sky.
Day 5 : LACHUNG TO ZERO POINT TO LACHEN
Lachung is the gateway to Yumthang Valley, also known as Valley of Flowers. The ride to Zero Point (Yumesamdong) at an altitude of 15,300 feet is when we touch the high altitude region of Sikkim. Zero point is where the road ends in India, before the Chinese border. The initial ride is through thick forests, but slowly the landscape becomes barren and with snow clad peaks all around, you witness the diverse beauty and experience Sikkim has to offer.
After a warm cup of tea and snacks close to the India - China border, we retrace the ride back and head to the scarcely populated and quaint town - Lachen.
Day 6 : LACHEN TO GURUDONGMAR LAKE TO LACHEN
This is arguably the most mesmerizing and challenging day of the tour. Gurudongmar lake, the source of the river Teesta, is one of the most pristine and sacred lakes in India and is located 5 km south of Chinese border, at an altitude of 17,800 feet. Today is undoubtedly the best Sikkim has to offer in terms of landscape. No words can describe the pristine beauty you will witness this day.
Day 7 : LACHEN TO GANGTOK
Today’s ride is a retrace to Gangtok. Before arrival in Gangtok, we halt at the famous Seven sister’s waterfall for some quick pictures. With this, we enter the hustle and bustle of colorful city life, as a contrast to the calm we experienced over the last few days. Today, the ROML crew will also renew your permits for the journey ahead to East Sikkim.
Day 8 : GANGTOK TO PADAMCHEN VIA NATHU LA PASS
Today being a long ride, we leave early in the morning to ride towards East Sikkim on the Gangtok - Nathula highway, which is a part of erstwhile ‘Old Silk Route’. En route, we halt for tea and snacks at Tsongmo Changu) Lake. Nathula pass would definitely be the highlight of the day and the tour. Just a common wall
separates India and China here; you can see the road coming from China to India from where trading used to happen centuries ago. See the Chinese camp and even say Hi to them as they will be feets away from you! After Nathula, we descend to ride along the beautiful views of Kanchenjunga mountain range, leading us to the famous 56 hairpin bends of Zuluk. Counting the bends and soaking in the beauty, we descend towards Padamchen, a small town in remote Sikkim
Day 9 : PADAMCHEN TO SILIGURI
