TBI BLOGS: 1 Bike, 2 Boys, 300 Days, 30,000 Km and a Soulful Journey Across India

Some of us plan our journeys ahead in life with things that matter to us.

Others, like Deepak Chauhan and Bhishma Choudhary, get on the road to experience life as it comes, each day different from the other.


After their monthly short trips to nearby locations, they found they had a greater calling that led them on the roads of India on a single bike, with two backpacks, and a clean slate to be filled with colours of India.

The two boys have recently travelled 30,000 km in 300 days across India on a Royal Enfield Bullet and are, in Deepak’s own words, still going strong.




The journey began despite the fact that Deepak used to ride only from 5 am to 11 am as he was working as a software tester. Deepak worked out of temples, gardens, beaches, mountain tops and even highways.

However, he has quit his job now and only wants to travel for the next few years.




They started on December 27, 2014, from Mumbai, hit Goa, planned to only do a tour of South India but ended up travelling all over the country. Till now they have covered more than 13,000 km – 8,500 km of South India, hiked the highest peaks of KeralaKarnataka and Tamil Nadu, camped at vast plateaus of the Deccan region, hogged street food, and spent nights conversing with strangers.

They have experienced India in many different ways, not the way we just see it on our computer screens.




After covering most of South India, they headed towards the western part of India to cover Gujarat and Rajasthan.

They describe Rajasthan and Gujarat as the most colourful states they have ever seen.

Soon after this, they explored the Himalayas.




They are now planning to cover the Northeast, Bhutan and South East Asia on their bike. Read about Deepak’s story in its entirety on LonelyIndia.
