Speaking about the ride, Mr. Ashish Singh Joshi (CEO of Classic Legends) said –

“With the Taktsang trail, we want to share a breathtaking experience for our participating riders. This unexplored trail will provide the right terrain and majestic routes, while testing the capabilities of our entire line-up of Motorcycles from Jawa and Yezdi. The riders will be able to enjoy the newly launched Yezdi range of motorcycles, but the Jawa and Jawa 42 will also enthrall the riders with their presence in the line-up. Riding the legendary Jawa and Yezdi motorcycles on this trail will be memorable for the Nomads.” 

The company adds that along the course of the ride, the group of 14 riders will be joined by riders from the Indian Army present in the region and will offer ‘homage to the bravery of the armed forces’. These riders will also get the opportunity of meeting the Chief Minister of Arunachal Pradesh – Mr. Pema Khandu – and GOC-5 Mountain Division, who will be flagging off the riders in the Tenga section of the ride. 

The 2022 Taktsang Trail ride started from Khonoma village (Asia’s first green village) and went through the city of Dimapur to the Nemati Ghats of the Brahmaputra River. Then the riders will traverse through Itanagar, covering Majuli, North Lakhimkur, and Nirjuli, passing through the lush green fields of Assam.
