Rajasthan Bike Tour

Once the home of the Rajput warriors, Maharajahs and Mogul rulers, Rajasthan is still the land of 1,001 Nights where you can enjoy a lovely cruise on your motorbikes.


Winters can be really cold in northern India! Rajasthan is a desert state with a lot of sunshine and hardly any rain. Nevertheless, you can expect daytime temperatures of around 10-15°C in December and January, with considerably colder nights. Foggy days may occur during those months. Hotels in India are generally unheated and can become quite cold. The time around Christmas and New Years is also popular for traveling among Indians. Indians are extremely sociable and the concept of noise pollution is quite foreign to them, so hotels can be loud at times during the peak traveling season.
We recommend November and February for travelers who value warmth, as well as peace and quiet. The days tend to be warm and dry and the nights mild during those months.
