Be aware that this itinerary is a best-situation guide only, and may need to change due to bad weather or other delays. Please be flexible but rest assured your Tour Leader will make the final day-to-day decisions only after consultation with our local agent, local authorities and of course, group members.

Food & Health
Food quality can obviously be a concern to some people visiting the subcontinent. We take care in selecting reputable establishments for our meals and for those with delicate constitutions it is usually possible to choose Western cuisine rather than the often fiery local fare. Even so, an occasional upset stomach cannot always be avoided in remote parts of India, so we advise initial caution and we carry various medicines to ensure as much comfort as possible. Participants in any of our adventure activities are obviously expected to have a reasonably high level of health, fitness and capability, but in all cases a consultation with your doctor is recommended in order to identify necessary vaccinations and precautions, particularly if visiting India for the first time.

Climate & Clothing
Our Millennium Motorcycle Safari is scheduled for December, one of the best possible months for touring in this part of the Himalaya. It is post-monsoon, with the skies clear and bright and brilliant blue. It is also winter however, so it will be quite cold and with luck we may have a white Christmas in Darjeeling -- although this has been a rare occurence with the changing weather patterns in recent years. Single-digit temperatures and virtually zero chance of rain will be the order of the day. Professional quality riding gear such as the Rivet 'Adventure' or 'Rainlock' jackets and other protective gear is an excellent investment and will go a long way to ensuring your comfort in what will sometimes be adverse conditions. The Rivet jackets are particularly versatile with a zip-in / zip-out padded liner for extra warmth and protection. At times there will be little shade available, so plenty of sunscreen, sunglasses, hats and long sleeves will also be required. T-shirts and jeans tend to be the norm, with strong boots and riding gloves. Helmets should be brought with you from home, but don't bring your brand new, unscratched one, as it may cop a bit of rough treatment.

Other important information you should note:-
The Indian subcontinent is not everyone's 'cup of tea'. It can be an extreme assault on the senses. In order to fully appreciate its true beauty you will need the ability to leave behind western values and to turn a blind eye to some of the harsher aspects of life in third-world, developing nations. If you can do this, you will find it truly a rewarding experience.

The riding conditions are also sometimes arduous and whilst 200k or so would appear to be quite an easy day's ride, this is not always so. Some days will require us to be on the road by 6:00am to beat the morning traffic, and the days can be long and hot. It is obviously expected that you are able to handle a motorbike competently and are fit and strong enough to cope with some demanding conditions. An important part of this is your mental approach and attitude. If you are the type of person who prefers lounging by the poolside with a dry martini, then perhaps this motorcycle safari is not for you. Try Club Med instead !

Be prepared to rough it a bit, be prepared to accept delays and hastily changed plans, be prepared to be tolerant of India's oft-bungling bureaucracy and ineptitude. Be flexible and above all, bring your sense of humour.
