If you discard the tourist in you and embrace the life of a traveler, you tend to find beauty in the journey instead of the destination.

Having traveled across 11 states in India, most of them on 2 wheels, I’ve come across some of the most beautiful roads in India. These road trips have left an indelible mark in my mind.

Here are some of my favourite roads in India…
