Motor Bike Tourism in Kerala

Motor Bike TourismGoing for a journey to the snow – capped Himalayan mountains on a premium motor bike is not an expensive affair now. With the Kerala tourism and motor vehicle departments giving license to Caferide, the first luxury motorcycle rental company in Kerala, motor bike tourism is becoming popular. The Kerala based firm is renting   out premium bikes, including Harley Davidson and Ducati, for the adventure travel enthusiasts.

As the tourism department has permitted the firm to use the logo of Kerala Tourism for promoting its activities the motor bike tourism is expected to get a fillip. Anyone can hire the bike for holiday trips, short city rides or just to experience the ride on a premium bike.

Any domestic and international traveler aged 21 and above can hire motor bikes from the firm. A copy of valid driving licence, identity proof and a refundable security deposit of Rs.5000 are required for hiring the vehicle.

The bikes are fitted with GPS and advanced safety features and the rented vehicles can’t be used for rash driving. The firm also provides cameras and other travel accessories.The greenery that lies beyond the urban chaos of Kochi is a stark contrast to the life in the city. It is yet largely unexplored by its residents. Streams, rivers, hillocks and forests are teeming with life.

The most popular tourist destinations for those who like serious trekking are Munnar and Vagamon. There are some activities happening at the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary as well.

While Halo Backwaters takes its trekking seriously, with packages ranging from three to 17 days, those who prefer something a little less strenuous can now indulge themselves thanks to the efforts of the Kerala Forest Department. We are working on starting a trekking trail through the Anapantham tribal colony, along the remnants of the tramway that used to run from Chalakudy to Parambikulam Tiger Reserve. The idea is to have a group of five to six people accompanied by two guides on the trek. We intend to break it down into three options: a 10 to 11 kilometre trek that concludes within a day and longer ones stretching one or two days.

What one would define as a trek varies depending on who you ask. For some a casual stroll along a forested path would count, for others it is a more elaborate affair.These things require preparation and guidance and the right equipment. For example, one of the options we have close to Kochi is the Phantom’s Head trek we organise from Suryanelli near Munnar.

The other options are availbale for tourists within the Thattekad Bird Sanctuary. The sanctuary, which used to host popular treks for bird lovers, had to shut them down owing to a host of issues. However, in a move to ignite the interest of the public again, the Idukki Wildlife Division of the Kerala Forest Department is restarting the programmes in a more organized manner. Baza Trail and the Trogon Trail, which are short one-kilometre walks that offer a chance to sight the Black Baza and Malabar Trogon. In order to preserve the harmony of the surroundings,  limit the number of people to 15 at a time.” The birding trails can be explored between 6 to 9 a.m. and 3 to 6 p.m.

We  also offer a border hike that takes participants along the Thattekad-Munnar range boundary, a six-kilometre trek that offers a little more of a challenge. Those who want to spend a little more time in the serene environs of the sanctuary also have the option of camping at Frogmouth Watch House or the Hornbill View tower, watching out for avian wildlife.
