5 days of exploration in the vicinity of Rajasthan with Tour-de-Thar

What if someone offered you an opportunity to spend the last few days of this year with friends, old and new, riding across the beautiful back roads in the day, sitting across a warm campfire in the wilderness, singing and dancing the night away, hard to say NO! Right?

 

Every year Tour-de-Thar lets you escape from the civilization, teaches you not to worry about anything else but the road ahead. Five days, your riding friends become your family and the wild becomes your home.

 

Tour-de-Thar every year has much more going, much exciting as you would be exploring a new side of the Thar. Tour-de-Thar routes are unconventional, untouched and riding on county back roads. All this lined up in the spirit of Tour-de-Thar to understand the artistic culture along with a host of new and exciting experiences.

A major highlight of Tour-de-Thar is the food. Instead of cooking our own food or sourcing it, we arrange for local cooks. These cooks reach the camping location ahead of us, cook and serve hot food on your arrival! Local recipes, cooked by local cooks, served in the wilderness, especially for you is pure bliss. This is the best food experience one can ask for. We have always believed in simple, rustic and authentic experiences, this is one great example of it.

A cake without icing doesn’t look appetizing. So is Tour-de-Thar, on the last night of the ride, a local band is called out. With soulful tunes being played, you start dancing to the lovely Rajasthani tunes.

Let’s sum it up for you, end of the year, five days of riding, you forget the world, a peek into the artistic world, camping, local recipe and you dance to soulful Rajasthani music.  A good way to end the year. A year, you toiled all along.

 

Come join us with Western Motorsport on Tour-de-Thar for a year ending experience of a lifetime!

Traveller of the Week: Arvind Patwal

Arvind Patwal belongs to Uttarakhand and is currently living in Delhi to pursue his graduation from Delhi University. A master at street photography, he currently works as a freelance photographer.

 

Arvind loves to research different places before starting his journey. He reminisces his first trip to Barsana at the time of the Holi festival. Excited to capture amazing colourful photography, he ultimately won.

 

Arvind Patwal

 

A group traveller by heart, he does like to travel solo depending on the situation. Though not a full-time traveller, travelling has always been a passion for him, a custom he wishes to follow.

 

A must visit for all the travel lovers out there, Arvind shares his favourite destinations with us. Anandpur Sahib during ‘Holla Mohalla’, Barsana during ‘Holi’, Varanasi during ‘Dev Dipawali’, streets of Kolkata, Deserts of Jaisalmer and Varanasi to be his favourite.

 

A planned traveller, his 5 must-haves for travelling include power bank, torch, blanket, dry fruits and a swiss knife. A lover of photography, the most interesting part for the young traveller is nonetheless, clicking pictures.
Covering states such as Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh, Punjab and cities like Kolkata, one life lesson he has learnt through travelling is to take care of oneself and never get involved in drug addiction.

Hola Mohalla, Anandpur Sahib, Punjab

An interesting fragment from the street photographer’s life involves around going to Anandpur Sahib for ‘Holla Mohalla’ with a few friends. He spent 4 nights in a car and enjoyed a lot while clicking pictures on the ground, says Arvind Patwal.
