Its always fun to get on the road with your best friends and that too on the motorcycles.
A trip with friends is always a good idea.
I, Harshit Sisodia here going to share my experience with you of Chamba, Kanatal & Dhanoulti.
We were four friends on two Enfield's.
Since long we were planning to go on hills and to spend good time away from cities hustle and a bike ride.
It was 5th of september, 2019 (Thursday), I was in office when I had a plan in my mind for the weekend trip to mountains but I was confused about the destination. I called to my friend Ayush and we decided to leave for Kanatal on upcoming saturday morning.
I started preparing for the trip and was very excited -
Basic check-list :
1. Packing Bags(Try to keep your travel bag small and light).
2. Charging camera battery.
3. Charging Mobile
3. Bike fuelling and air check in tyres
4. My bike was serviced few days back only (Highly recommended to service your bike before long trip)
5. Some medicines (Headache, body-pain, fever, stomach pain, vomiting)
7th September, 03:45 A.M
We got up 20 minutes prior to our scheduled time due to excitement. we checked our final back pack that we need to carried.
Me and my cousin, Mayank started our journey from Gurgaon and we decided to meet in Dehradun as two of my friends were coming from Chandigarh.
Route that I had to follow was - Gurgaon - Delhi - Ghaziabad - Meerut - Muzaffarnagar - Roorkee - Haridwar - Dehradun - Dhanolti - Kanatal
Total distance - 353 Kms
Finally at 4:20 we started our journey. I was riding in dark and silence. As these were early hours so there was no traffic and very soon we crossed Delhi & Ghaziabad.
As numbers were increasing on bike trip meter weather was getting fine. We crossed Meerut and took first break near Muzaffarnagar 150Km from Gurgaon. It was around 07:00 A.M. Weather was very pleasant.
We had tea there and stayed for more than 30 minutes. We started again by 08:00 A.M. Dehradun was still 130kms away from there and we have to reach on time to meet with the friends coming from Chandigarh and then continue to Kanatal.
Roads were good till Muzaffarnagar,after that Road was not in good shape due to heavy constructions going on and off the Road;So Crossing Roorkee was very exhausting due to heavy traffic and all that.
