Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)

Manali is well connected with Delhi and Chandigarh. Best way to reach Kullu or Manali is via overnight bus from Delhi/Chandigarh. You can take semi-sleeper Volvo AC buses or normal sleeper buses. The bus journey take 11-13 hours to reach Kullu and a further 1 hour to reach Manali. Tickets should be booked online. We suggest you choose government run buses such as HPTDC and HRTC as they are seldom late and run as per schedule.

The ride is awesome even though I was disappointed not to get the bike I paid for. Could be improve: accomodations. It was very basic and I am sure there is better camps around. Organisation/timing respect: Often late for departure in the morning which obliges not to visit what was planned or finish late by night. For foreigners, I would recommend the tour to include more visits (palace, temples, cities,....) and maybe shorter rides. It was intense driving with little time for pictures.

I have completed my Manali - Leh one way motorcycle tour booked through Trodly. In one simple word...WOW! This trip exceeded all of my expectations and beyond. No doubt, this is challenging technical riding, especially for a foreigner, and certainly not for a novice rider. But what an experience! Beyond the jaw-dropping scenic beauty, it was such a privilege to be part of such a diverse, smart, and interesting group of adventurers!
