Best places to go off-roading in India

Is it even a real adventure travel if you haven’t stopped midway to take a breather and give your rattled bones a break? At any point in your adventure travel, did you stop and say “Wow, that must have left a couple of my organs misplaced.”

If yes, you are worthy of that bike or a 4x4 of yours. And if you are someone who had a journey smooth enough to count the trees by the roadside, you need to try these off-roading tracks at least once in your life. Some might even say these are life-changing rides, but for us it’s just as simple as “because they are great fun”.

Here are some of the best places in India to go off-roading. Be it on a bike or a 4x4, rev up and get-set-go…

Also known as BR-Betta, is one of the most loved off-roading places in the state. It is a corridor that connects the Western Ghats and the Eastern Ghats. The BR Betta hill range offers amazing tracks, where you can take your bike for a spin. The ride is a mix of smooth and rough patches.

The Bhambhaphod to Sasan checkpost is where you want to be for this ride. The Asiatic lions call it their home, their last refuge. You will be in the land of the big cats, so keep to the assigned route only. The arid landscape of Gir will give you some great dramatic rides.

There’s nothing like offroading in Nagaland. The tracks are as wild as they come. An approximately 85 km stretch will test your patience and riding-driving skills. Most parts in Nagaland are as rough as it can get so if you are on a bike, you may be able to navigate without many hold-ups. But a sturdy four-wheeler is the most trusted on the challenging roads of Nagaland.

Many call it extreme off-roading, thanks to the conditions one has to ride on these tracks. Bikes are preferred on this difficult terrain as one has to swiftly and carefully navigate over stretches narrow enough to make the best of riders take a moment to breathe and focus. The roads are ROCKY. Even experienced riders choose to follow one another on these tricky roads.
