Touring on a motorcycle is a life changing experience. In contrast to a traditional car trip where you feel confined within a small space, exploring the nature on two wheels offers an absolutely vivid and astounding experience.
No wonder the concept of Motorcycle touring has changed in the last 10 years. As per a report from Statista; worldwide revenue in the off-road motorcycles segment is projected to reach US$6,549m in 2021. Additionally, the global adventure motorcycles market is expected to post a CAGR of above 10%.
There are hundreds of scenic roads across the world, but the greatest of all rides are spiced by the thrill of sharp bends, high passes, remote campsites, arid deserts that are only found in parts of Asia.
Let’s take a look at 5 of the best rides across Asia, whether for a weekend trip or a multi-day adventure tour.
1. Mustang Valley, Nepal
North of the mighty Annapurna, tucked away between Tibet and Nepal, stands the magnificent Mustang Valley – a remote, transcendental, tempestuous region with extreme mountain roads.
This undisturbed piece of land offers breath-taking sceneries, panoramic landscapes, snow clad mountains, pervasive culture and an incomparable riding experience.
