It was a last-minute decision to explore the northeast and luckily we found Thrillophilia. Had a whale of a time, riding our motorbikes at 3500 meters and having connected to nature. Exploring the Tawang Monastery, examining the historic buildings, and gazing upon ancient scriptures, all on our 11-day tour is unbelievable. I would like to give credit where it’s due and thank Thrillophilia to have made stunning arrangements at camps. Absolutely love how I could feast upon delicious vegetarian dinners at such remote locations. If you are a confident rider and have a valid motorcycle operator license, I suggest you take up this tour. The snowy paths, a reflection of the snow-capped mountains on the bike’s mirror, and sipping on butter tea, at one of the stalls, will always remain dear to my heart.

Experiencing North East India’s unparalleled beauty was always on my mind but I had my quirks. I did not want the usual air travel or train travel so I signed up for a Motorcycle tour of the Tawang in Arunachal Pradesh with Thrillophilia. And, boy! Was I impressed? Hell Yes, My friend and I bagged their exclusive tour and went on to explore the historic buildings of Tawang, rode along the snow-coated mountainous paths, shimmering lakes and interacted with the Monpa tribes. A big shout out to Thrillophilia for fine arrangements like comfy tents to spend the night and delicious meals!
